Phase 3


During phase three residents practice the skills they have learned in the day to day living of their treatment plans. This could include the residents being enrolled in school, attending 12 step meetings, and/or being actively engaged in the group dynamics at the ranch. This slowly happens through their practice and counseling by layering our therapeutic approach giving support every step of the way. Residents will be their primary force of motivation and will have found a new start to life. The weekends group activities continue and residents can keep exploring new activities to incorporate into their lives. Having fun is important in creating self care during and after our program.

The Twelve Step program is a powerful tool for a person struggling with substance abuse. There are many ranches a recovering individual may choose, but in the Rites of Passage Ranch Long Term Care Program, we offer not only a clean and safe home, but a sober environment as well. This environment begins with the custom design of our sober living ranch and is enhanced with the personal involvement of our dedicated and experienced staff, in the lives of each of our guests.
