Treatment Insights

The Liberty Ranch believes in providing well rounded treatment that addresses the complex mental health conditions that go along with addiction while simultaneously helping clients build a strong foundation in a 12-step program. The emphasis at the Ranch is placed on helping the individual identify and change the behavior patterns that are causing them to relapse while developing healthier and adaptive behaviors conducive to sobriety. Through the help of experienced peer support specialists and licensed clinicians, residents gain a working knowledge of their triggers and have a set of tools that help them successfully live their life sober and to good purpose. Set in the hills of rural Kentucky, in the community of Kings Mountain, the Liberty Ranch offers short- and long-term structured transitional living for adults struggling with substance abuse disorders. The facility is a peer-run, community-based center, where staff members are in also in active recovery. Next to the structured transitional living facility is the Liberty Ranch Rehabilitation Center, where residents go to receive clinically based services such as substance abuse treatment classes, psychotherapy, and family counseling. These services are also available to people in the community who are not residential

Substitute the word "badgering" for "nurturing" wherever it occurs in AA literature and you'll have a pretty good idea of Liberty Ranch's approach.

Be careful. The Liberty Ranch is not what it seems. When the ranch is not full they make deals and promises to fill beds but do not stick to them.

Areas of Focus
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

Family Program

Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

    Larry Luttrell - Founder

    Originally from Casey County, Larry began his training in structured transitional living management in Los Angeles in 1990 with Jerry Polcaro, PhD at New Life House and then later with Robert Mellan, PhD at Liberty House. Larry has gained competencies in running nonclinical processing and feedback groups as well as implementing the Gorski Method of Relapse Prevention within the structure of his transitional livings, resulting in remarkably lower relapse rates. Known for his intuition, extraordinary skills in breaking behavior apart, and over 28 years of experience working with addicted populations and their families, Larry has carved out an unbeatable reputation in the recovery community. Since opening multiple transitional livings, a detox program, as well as an outpatient program, Larry has continued to work alongside many professionals in the field including James Woods, PhD of Promises Treatment Center and Bernard McInerny, PhD. and Romana Zvereva, M.D. of Betty Ford Treatment Center. Considered an expert in the field, Larry has paved the way for many other professionals to utilize structured transitional living programs as effective long term treatment options for drug addicts and alcoholics. His revolutionary methods for implementing practical application of the 12 steps within the structure are innovative and have been replicated across the country.
