Heidi Vendegna. : This is a very well run facility, fabulously organized right down to the transportation which was run like a well oiled machine. The days were packed full of groups, individual and intensive therapies. Equine therapy is well integrated in the program as was adventure therapy which was most impactful. Every staff member is RESPECTFUL and very caring and the physicians are very knowledgeable in Trauma, Mental Health and addiction Medicine. The houses are staffed with very caring people and the therapists are great! Discharge planning was covered very well and aftercare outreach team stays involved. I can't say enough about this treatment center.
Rachel Sherriff. : I am, and will always be eternally grateful for my time at The Ranch. Rewind to 2012. I had lost all faith in myself, and life itself. I didn't want to live any longer. The Ranch quite literally saved my life. I had hated myself for so long, I didn't even know if self love was possible. Don't get me wrong-- it wasn't a comfortable process. They had me take an honest look at myself and all my negative coping mechanisms. I had to be completely transparent, in order to move forward and heal from the traumas of my past. The trauma work I experienced with the therapists at The Ranch was some of the most healing work I've ever done. My primary therapist truly made me feel cared about as she fiercely advocated for me. Upon discharge I was provided with personalized tools by the therapeutic team to go out into the world and succeed- and I've done just that.
Jeffrey Engberg. : My journey to The Ranch was the result of an ultimatum given to me by my wife. She told me I had 2 choices: seek treatment at The Ranch for my addiction or move out of the house. My life was unraveling before my eyes. Because of my addiction, I was on the verge of losing everything that I loved, everything that was important to me in my life. Even so, after spending 3 days at The Ranch, I wanted out of there! However, I knew what the consequences would be if I left. I would lose everything! My wife, my family. Maybe even my life! So I reluctantly stayed. As a result, I found a sanctuary. I found a place where the stressors of the real world were gone. As a result, I found myself. And I found my sobriety. I have been living a life of recovery since. I have almost 1 1/2 years of sobriety. The Ranch is not a perfect place. There is no such thing. If one wants to get sober, one must immerse yourself in the program, in the process. No matter what facility, program you're in. I truly believe that I owe my life to The Ranch! The Ranch staff and their programs showed me the way to live a different life. The Brotherhood I formed with other men, who were also struggling with addictions, will be everlasting. My experience at The Ranch was the biggest blessing I could ever have wished for. The Ranch will be a part of my life forever!
Laya Jean. : There are no words I could use that would fully describe my time at the Ranch. I truly believe that this place is a sacred one. The Ranch gave me my life back & so much more. I will forever be grateful to this place and its staff.
Diane Canis. : The ranch changed my life for the better in all aspects. I needed to find my true self and the staff there couldn't have been more wonderful or helpful. The therapy and adventure therapy especially blew my mind and opened my eyes to so much more. very grateful.
Sandra Lamb. : My son entered inpatient at The Ranch a few weeks ago. For the first time my son wants to be in recovery and says The Ranch has already made a tremendous difference in his life. He says the classroom work, counseling sessions, and team activities have been invaluable during this initial phase of his recovery. He has bonded with others in the program and says they support and encourage one another. His counselor has updated me weekly on his progress and the administrative staff have been dedicated to working through the insurance process. Our family is very blessed to have found this program. I am certain this solid foundation will contribute immensely to my son’s full recovery. I will give an update when he completes and succeeds the program :)
Kait Englert. : I'm really hesitant to give this feedback, because I had both positive and negative experiences at The Ranch, during the three weeks I spent at Windsong (the women's trauma house). Positive experiences were living with a routine, the maze, DBT, and being able to see the horses every morning. The biggest help was being able to live with other women who had experienced trauma, day in and day out. Negative were how little I actually talked to a therapist one-on-one. I was there for three weeks in December, and I saw my primary therapist twice, and my trauma therapist once. They advertise that you'll see both once a week. I understand that people need time off, especially during the holidays, but my biggest issue is I was charged the full daily cost. Every week I requested additional equine therapy and rides, and was dismissed. No one was told you can't do "dangerous" adventure therapy if you have *ever* had suicidal thoughts. I was treated as an addict when I didn't have an addiction, forced to go to AA and NA meetings regularly. The worst part was the drama. If you don't let 10-20 women spend any time alone (I get it, isolating is bad), there will be drama. At week 2 of my three weeks, an age war began. I was told by another client I couldn't understand other people and was selfish because I saw things differently than someone almost half my age, and staff let it go. Therapists tried talking clients through it, but inevitably, there was ridiculous, childish drama that hurt everyone. That said, I would go back if my insurance would cover me (Blue cross, you're getting your own post). I loved my therapists (Robyn and Monica) and wish I could see them more. Some of the relationships I built will be lifelong. My biggest issue is that my time was cut short, and healing from trauma takes time. The Ranch needs to fix issues, but the majority of issues lie with insurance.
Lauren Wright. : My experience was absolutely phenomenal. I had my ups and downs with some of the staff but overall I would send my child to The Ranch. whenever I needed care, the staff was there for me. I felt that everyone genuinely wanted to help the clients. I went for PTSD, trauma, and borderline personality disorder and every single day I got stronger and learned more about myself that I never knew. the clients were the most loving, understanding, and welcoming people I have ever met in my entire life. I wish I could stay there forever.
Liv Boyle. : Horrible place. Stay away. If you’re looking for REAL help from qualified, educated, compassionate people, I suggest Pine Grove in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. The Ranch is absolute garbage. I had a nurse laugh at me because I was in emotional distress. I filed a complaint and nothing was done about it. This is just one of the many moments of absolute neglect I faced when I was in their ‘care’. They should be ashamed of themselves.
Hana Smith. : I myself went to the Ranch for 30 days. I am not any better off than i was before, in some ways my depression has gotten worse. I would not recommend the ranch for anyone struggling with mental/mood disorders. I went to the Ranch under the impression that they treated mood disorders in addition to addictions. Unfortunately, that was not the case. I went in with high hopes for their treatment program that would help with my depression. They did not have a single group or therapeutic activity geared toward mood disorders. The Ranch treats addictions, traumas, and eating disorders. I was not the only one who came in and was very disappointed. The staff was underqualified, especially those working in the houses. It doesn't take a college degree to recognize the importance of being extremely kind and sensitive when working with mental illness, especially trauma. I was placed in the trauma house since there wasn't a house designated for mental illness as we were told. I saw the staff treat clients there for trauma with extreme insensitivity. Many of the things advertised on their website and through their admissions department are false. There are no acupuncture or massage therapists. The "adventure therapy" consists of low ropes team building exercises. There is no equine therapy that involves actually getting to ride a horse. There is very minimal contact allowed to your family. The staff is more concerned about adhering to the dress code, keeping an eye on you every second, and other rules such as making your bed instead of caring for your well being. I hope the new management will take of these problem and improve their program.

Hannah Heacock. : phenomenal program! If you have the opportunity to go here, take it!! The holistic approach and focus on overall wellness is incredible! No matter what you go there for (drug addiction, ED, mental health, etc.), they focus on the root and treating everything. The trauma therapy I received there changed my life. They tackled all of my issues in such a sympathetic and effective way. The community really felt like a family .Even the staff is understanding and caring and incredibly relatable. They offer so many different approaches to therapy, not just equine. This is one program where you really do a lot all the time. Even though I was unhappy about it at first(because I couldn't use the phone and felt like there were too many restrictions), my biggest breakthroughs were all because of this program.
