Renaissance Ranch Named Utah’s 2014 ‘Best of State’ for Mental Health Services
April 15, 2014 Salt Lake City –
Renaissance Ranch, one of the premier residential substance abuse treatment centers in the West, has been named Utah’s “Best of State” in providing mental health services.
“We are grateful to receive Utah’s 2014 ‘Best of State’ honor,” said HR Brown, President, CEO and founder of Renaissance Ranch. “This award goes to all of our staff who have dedicated their lives to helping those who suffer from addiction. They work on a day to day basis with our clients to help them on the road to recovery. It can be a difficult job at times, but the rewards are eternal. We are also grateful to the many clients we’ve been able to help – they are the reason we do what we do”.
Nominations for the “Best of State” award are reviewed by more than 100 judges. Each entry is given a numerical score based on three basic judging criteria: 50 percent on achievement and excellence in a specific field; 30 percent on creativity in approaches; and 20 percent to the contribution of improving Utah.
Renaissance Ranch, along with other award recipients, will be honored at a gala on June 4, 2014, at the Salt Palace Convention Center. Utah’s “Best of State” awards were created to recognize outstanding individuals and businesses in Utah. By recognizing excellence in the community, the “Best of State” awards aim to inspire people and companies to work harder and smarter to succeed.

Real Stories of Recovery
My sobriety date is July 15 2008. And for that I am very grateful. The ranch has given Me the tools to live a life I never thought was possible. I have never forgotten the feelings I felt when I was there in treatment and that's what gets me through the day, is the feelings and brotherhood that I was so blessed with while I was in the ranch.
Renaissance Ranch will always be a special place to me and will always have a special place in my heart. I had already attended one rehab facility. The Ranch truly saved my life by teaching me and allowing me to understand and love who I am.
I had a head full of gospel knowledge and a heart full of shame. I felt like a failure. I hated who I was. That all changed during my stay at Renaissance Ranch. I quickly realized that I wasn't alone and that there were others who felt the same feelings of self-hatred, failure, and shame. This realization, coupled with the nonjudgmental environment of the Ranch, I was able to be completely honest and open for the first time in my life. From the guidance and empathy of my counselors and brothers, I learned it was okay to feel and I started to believe that there was hope.
I have been called to serve a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in the Fort Collins, CO mission. I am eternally grateful for the sacrifices and love of everyone at The Ranch. I attribute my recovery to God, hard work, and the things I learned while I was there. I am so excited to go serve my Heavenly Father, it has been a long hard road to get here but I know it is what he wants me to do. My heart is full of gratitude and love for those who have cared for me... Thank you for all you have done for me...
As soon as I walked through the doors of the Ranch I felt hope. My life had spiraled into depths of shame, misery, guilt, depression, sadness, and suffocating darkness prior to reaching those front doors. The 2 months that followed would forever change my life and provide a foundation within that is unshakable.
Renaissance Ranch gave me a gift that no amount of money can ever repay. Through their unique, caring approach I learned how much I was loved, and that I never had to feel alone every again.
