The first step in the admission process is a full substance abuse assessment. The potential client will be fully screened either in person or by phone and the assessment will take approximately 30-45 minutes. Part of the assessment process includes doing a complete history ranging from types of substance use, frequency of use, and length of use.
We also discuss the impact the potential client’s substance abuse has had on family, social, employment, legal, psychological, housing, transportation and spiritual aspects of their life. Each of these areas are part of the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria and are evaluated by our clinical staff to determine appropriate level of care as well as a DSM IV diagnosis (Diagnosis and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders).
The process of assessment is key to determining the appropriate level of treatment so we provide this service at no additional charge. Call now 1-855-736-7262 to schedule an assessment.
Real Stories of Recovery
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
