Private Intensives

For those who may need a higher level of anonymity

For some, seeking help also comes with a need for anonymity. While confidentiality is always important to us, some clients require a higher level of privacy. For Private Intensives, our team of highly qualified experts utilizes cutting-edge modalities to tailor an intensive workshop experience to the specific needs of each client or family. These are highly customizable, both in the number of days and the issues addressed. This specialized offering allows us the ability to utilize our finest key staff and targeted modalities.

What Intensives Are Designed For

Like our group workshops, private intensives are designed to help people dealing with anything from trauma and addiction to grief and other personal issues. Licensed professionals help individuals identify the root causes of negative behaviors and provide the tools necessary to make positive change. Clients in our private intensives have all of Rio Retreat Center’s resources at their fingertips with the added benefit of remaining anonymous throughout their stay. Our customizable short-term intensives can easily fit into their busy schedules and can also address issues between family members or spouses, allowing for whole family healing.
