In a safe, respectful and supportive environment, guest work with certified therapists developing a treatment plan based on their goals and interests. Often, those recovering from addiction need to recover some sense of purpose, belonging and personal fulfillment. To assist in this process, guests are assigned daily ranch chores. This is also a good time for individuals to reflect on their past behaviors and where they see themselves in future. Working individually and in a team environment, guests will learn to make healthy choices and tale responsibility for those choices. This includes learning that recovery happens from the inside out starting with healthy eating and rest. Often responsible for preparing their own meals, complete holistic food preparation is part of the curriculum.
When not participating in individual, group or peer to peer therapy, life skills lessons, work programs, community volunteer programs or mentoring new arrivals, guests are kept extremely busy. Wilderness treks and adventures put old skills and abilities to use and teach new methods of dealing with life's daily challenges and obstacles; regaining a sense of pride, self-confidence and achievement. Revisiting past hobbies and trying out new interests provides an opportunity for individuals to replace poor behaviors with healthy ones.
