I have always been passionate about helping people live their lives successfully and to the fullest. I completed medical school, and I also have a Master’s in Science specializing in healthcare administration and management. My passion for helping those seeking recovery from drugs and alcohol started while completing an internship at an inpatient dual diagnosis unit in Maryland. I have a strong understanding of the 12 Step program and addiction medicine. Furthermore, I have worked in the residential treatment field for addiction and mental health for over 3 years as a program director and as a director of compliance as well.

Ridgeview Ranch believes that addiction touches every aspect of a person’s life and therefore effective drug and alcohol rehab treatment must address the Whole Person. Whole Person treatment is Mental, Emotional, Physical, and Spiritual. At Ridgeview Ranch, we have combined a wide array of activities and therapies that have proven to promote healthy living by decreasing stress and improving physical conditioning in addition to practices that quiet the mind for deep personal reflection. We believe we offer strategies that help our clients find “balance”. We are pleased to offer these activities as a regular part of the weekly program for our clients. We are able to create “individual” sessions tailored to address specific issues and needs as they arise from the rehab treatment experience. Our Holistic Therapy Practitioners are either Certified and/or Licensed and come to us with many years of experience.

Reviews at a Glance
- Individualized Treatment
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
