Why Choose Us
The Ranch is not just a name. It’s a working 2,000-acre ranch just 45 minutes from Nashville that offers a unique recovery experience far removed from the stresses of daily life. Upon arrival at The Ranch, the paradigm shift begins. You’ll enjoy privacy and scenic beauty as you work with horses, live in a country cottage with its own unique character, and reconnect with nature and yourself.
Here are just a few of the things that make us special:
Care That Respects Your Individuality
We believe that recovery is most likely to flourish in a setting that is welcoming and respectful of each person as an individual. Within this nurturing framework, you’ll have the freedom to explore the issues that are fueling those disorders which undermine you as a person. We support you in developing the tools to manage and overcome those challenges and help you meet the authentic person you are. Whether you’re struggling with trauma, grief or loss, addiction, depression or anxiety, eating disorders or intimacy disorders, you will find our team is able to treat even the most difficult challenges.
Our therapists are committed to applying the most effective and innovative strategies to help you heal. And that starts with the creation of a personalized treatment program that reflects your needs and preferences.
Alternative Paths to Healing
Recovery is different for everyone. That’s why we draw on an unmatched diversity of traditional and holistic treatments to help you heal. In addition to the best in traditional evidence-based therapies, The Ranch offers experiential therapies that can help you get to the issues underlying your disorder. For some, healing begins while working with horses in equine therapy. For others, swinging from ropes and literally climbing to new heights clears the way for an emotional breakthrough. Still others may find connection to themselves and others through art, music or movement therapy, or mindfulness-based practices. Whatever your path to recovery, you can find it at The Ranch.
Greater Connection to Your Spiritual Side
The Ranch offers a full slate of spiritually focused interventions as well as the assistance of a team of providers focused on your spiritual needs. Choose from the programs that speak most to you, including medicine wheel and sweat lodge ceremonies, mindfulness training or guided meditation, or a Journey through James and Celebrate Recovery Ministries, to name a few.
Skilled Professionals to Guide You to Recovery
Our experienced staff will be there to guide you throughout your recovery journey at The Ranch. Your team includes a noted triple board certified addiction psychiatrist, a staff physician who is double board certified in internal medicine and addiction medicine, psychiatric nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and master’s level therapists, among others.
A Close-Knit Community
Our intimate, community-based model means you won’t be just another face in the crowd. You’ll get one-on-one support from your recovery team and have the opportunity to develop healthy peer relationships with others traveling the same path. Each of our homes is a treatment community unto itself, with no more than 8 to 15 patients in a residence.
