What Our Alumni Say
In February of 2008 I actually thought I would be planning a funeral for my daughter in the VERY near future. My life seemed to be spiraling out of control due to her drug and alcohol abuse. It was just completely out of my hands and I felt hopeless. Our doctor gave us the name of the ONLY place he recommended, that being The Ranch Mississippi .When I first called I couldn’t see how I could put my beloved daughter in a place that didn’t even have a pool, etc. Some how they convinced me to see the light, maybe just out of pure desperation. Whatever gift it was, I can only say today she is the daughter I always wanted. She has been working now for more then a year and attending meetings weekly. She also attends Ranch Mississippi’s after care. I am proud to say she is my child. All of this is due to the amazing work that the counselors at Ranch Mississippi instilled in her. The loving girl I once knew is back. Now I wake up each day and Thank GOD for giving me The Ranch Mississippi and sending us to MS on that very bleak day in February.
I was a habitual “relapser”. My therapist had recommended The Ranch Mississippi before, but I had heard it was a boot camp and I did not think someone of my age would benefit. I was wrong. The campus atmosphere was great, the daily Big Book studies, the morning meditation, grocery shopping, cooking, early, early meditations on the patio. I don’t know, but a full moon always seemed brighter and closer. Maybe that was because no city lights of high building obscured the view, or maybe I was seeing the moon with a clearer pair of eyes. Thank you for letting me share my experience, strength and hope. Today, I am 14 months sober. I am sober one day at a time.
The Ranch Mississippi not only saved my life but it changed my life. I was lost in drug addiction and alcoholism before coming to Ranch Mississippi . The Ranch Mississippi gave me the tools I needed to not only stop my addictions, but also laid out a plan for how to live again. Through constant contact with counselors, staff, and other patients I learned the fundamentals on how to use the support system I had and relearned basic life skills to be able to restructure a life worth living.
I had always heard The Ranch Mississippi was a “boot camp” in Mississippi. Far from the truth-it’s a fantastic surprise when you actually get there. Ranch Mississippi saved my life and actually gave me a life.
I woke up out of a blackout at The Ranch Mississippi. The people were so caring, but did not tolerate any of my B.S. I’m alive and happy and all the promises have come true for me. The Ranch Mississippi is a huge part of my story-part of the solution for me.
The best part of my experience is that I am alive, sober, have regained the trust and respect of my family, and that I am in a better place than I have been in decades. I truly believe that The Ranch Mississippi , along with the community here, saved my life.
I am very grateful that I had the chance to get the best care and treatment I have gotten to receive. I did not know a place like this was out there. I wish that everyone knew what a great opportunity this is for them.
I think ranch Mississippi saved my life and am so grateful I came here. From the nurses to the CAs, the staff was wonderful and I couldn’t have asked for better
In the beginning I was in denial of my need for help. However, through my stay and treatment I learned how much I needed what The Ranch Mississippi was offering. They gave realistic goals, boundaries and outcomes. I feel better than words can describe.
The staff was very supportive and encouraging and I felt like I had found a place where I could be myself. I wouldn’t change my stay here for anything I love all the staff and they have given me a new freedom and sense of happiness!!!!
After being to so many treatments in the past, all of which are well known, I do feel like I got more out of this treatment. I believe that is because it was less lectures and teaching and more application and processing. Leslie Cain was my counselor and a true gift to me. The safety and support I felt from day one with her allowed me to finally open up and uncover some deep rooted issues. I was blessed to have some awesome women in my group and that honesty that we all put out there really helped me to continue to throw out into the middle of the floor what my fears were/are and where my addiction has taken me. I also got a lot out of living in a unit where my daily needs had to be met by myself and the others within my unit. No one cooking for me or really cleaning up after me and shopping allowed me to feel like I was still a part of life rather than having others do for me for 90 days.
I chose to come back to The Ranch Mississippi because this has been the only treatment center out of the three ive been too that has actually kept me sober for a long period of time (2 and half years). I learned all of the tools i needed and they kept me accountable even after i left. Even though i relapsed I have never put together that much time in all of my years of using. I love this place and would recommend it to everyone!
There are no words to describe how compassionate and caring this program has been to me. My goals and needs were met above and beyond any thing i could have ever expected. My time with Stacey was always amazing. Also the feedback and encouragement from all the staff….Tina,Cindy and Zach. I also enjoyed the time with my peers learning from them and encouraging them.
