The Ranch treatment center offers alumni services to clients and their loved ones to help them stand strong in recovery. Our alumni program is managed by passionate, experienced recovery professionals who go above and beyond to empower and support clients long after they’ve left residential care.

Clients begin developing a supportive relationship with our alumni coordinators and alumni network while still in treatment through weekly groups that include both current clients and alumni. These groups provide opportunities for support, hope and insight between those sharing similar struggles, which gives clients the opportunity to establish bonds with alumni and alumni group leaders that they can build upon in the alumni program after treatment.
