At The Ranch treatment center, we respect that no two clients have the same issues, background or diagnosis. Each client’s treatment plan reflects that, and no two days are alike. This is also true of our daily schedules, which change weekly from program to program.
Our specially trained treatment teams provide a unique blend of individual and group therapies based on your particular needs. Our diverse traditional and alternative approaches are designed to help you address underlying issues and discover and embrace your authentic self.
At The Ranch mental health and drug rehab, you’ll live in a house with a small group of peers. This setting helps you develop close, supportive relationships and practice recovery skills. You’ll prepare and eat your meals together, beginning with breakfast preparation from 6:30 to 7 am. From 7 to 7:30 am you’ll engage in some type of gentle fitness activity.
After fitness, you’ll have what we like to call “mindful breakfast.” You’re encouraged to use meals as a mindfulness activity, engaging all of your senses: taste, smell and touch. More mindfulness follows breakfast, such as meditation. From 8:45 to 11:30 am, you’ll attend groups focusing on topics such as developing boundaries, spirituality or adventure therapies.
Lunch takes place from 12 to 1 pm and also serves as a “mindful eating” experience and process group. Following lunch, you may attend an individual therapy session or participate in one of our adventure therapies, depending on the day. At 2 pm, we usually hold psychoeducational groups where you’ll learn about a number of addiction or mental health topics. Other days, you’ll take part in experiential therapies during this time. Equine therapy with horses or 12-step work fills the time before dinner preparation at 5 pm.
Dinner takes place from 5:45 to 6:45 pm. From 7 to 9 pm, we hold 12-step meetings and therapist-facilitated groups. You’ll also have personal time for homework and other activities. At 9 pm, we’ll discuss the day and have closing meditation and reflection.
