At Renaissance Ranch, we know that family support is essential to the success of our clients. The disease of addiction affects all members of the family.
Our philosophy is centered on looking at the family as a system, using LDS based principles to families find peace and strength over addiction. If the family system does not change and the family members do not do their recovery work, the same dysfunctional styles of communication and interaction pose a threat to the sobriety of all members of the family.
Our Family Counseling Program is five months of education that focuses on the Family Systems Model along with the work of Virginia Satir. It is also consistent with the Al-Anon program’s approach and explanation of the family disease model. Family Group meets each week on Wednesday nights.
We also offer the Family Retreat that covers three days of focused education, discussion, processing and experiential work that enables family members to experience their own treatment process and increase self-awareness and emotional healing.
The Family Retreat experience will address several topics that include but are not limited to the 12 Steps,Codependency, Shame, Character Defects, journaling, Bibliotherapy and Spirituality.
There is no additional cost for family members to participate in our Family Program.
Families can make a difference by seeking help – not just for the alcoholic/addict – but for the entire family system.

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 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.
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...
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.
