Women who come through Renaissance Ranch experience recovery from substance abuse addiction at our program in Bluffdale, Utah. We offer a separate drug treatment program called Renaissance Ranch for Women that provides a unique, clinically-driven, spiritually-based approach to drug rehabilitation. Part of that process includes a gender-specific therapeutic program that provides the appropriate setting for women to deal directly with their substance abuse issues.
Our gender-specific therapeutic community provides a safe, healing environment for each client. Research has shown that women respond differently to substance abuse treatment than men and that programs for women are more successful when they focus on relationships with other people and offer ways for the women to master their lives while keeping those relationships intact.
Because of these findings, we have created a program that assesses the unique needs of women such as relationships with their partners, families and children, and their history of physical and sexual abuse. According to research, over 80% of women who struggle with substance abuse have suffered from abuse issues in the past. Women need to be in a safe environment so that they can address these issues. Getting to these core issues is a necessary step on their road to recovery.
At Renaissance Ranch for Women, our program utilizes the 12 Steps, the Therapeutic Community, experiential therapy, equine therapy, individual and group therapy in a setting compatible with women’s needs. We focus on the importance of social relationships and take into account gender roles and female socialization. Our program supports active, interdependent roles for women. It also addresses women’s unique treatment issues in the areas of trauma, shame, coping mechanisms and self-worth. We also incorporate the foundational role of spirituality in recovery.
Experience and research have shown that an effective group program for women must deal with the issues specific to their recovery and create a safe and nurturing environment based on mutuality, empathy, respect and compassion. At Renaissance Ranch, we foster these traits in our clients because we know that they are vital to their long-term recovery from addiction.

Real Stories of Recovery
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.
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...
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.
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.
