The Ranch Mississippi Reviews and Ratings Details
The following is based on a combination of Surveys of Alumni, Staff, Loved Ones, and Reviews and Ratings from around the web.
Reviews at a Glance
- 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.
- Real-World Recovery
The Ranch Mississippi helps clients gain practical recovery skills to help them succeed after treatment. Clients live in cottages with a small group of peers and work through everyday interpersonal challenges. They also have daily chores such as tidying, preparing and cooking their own meals, and tending to the community garden.
