A top-notch facility. Expect no luxury accommodations. The question is: do you want to get sober or do you want to waste money on stylish lodgings? The counselors know what they are doing and they tur...


The Ranch MS has helped a couple of my friends with their addictions. Therapy helped them tremendously. Great staff and facilities!


My mother was in treatment at COPAC several years ago. I don't know how I would have gotten through such a difficult time without the staff members who helped us. Family week gave me more than I ever ...


Hello! I am former alumni of Copac and this program saved my life. I received the best clinical treatment for 1/3 of other facilities cost. I was able to gain control of my life and end my addiction t...


I found the ranch also formerly known as "copac" to be a horrible experience. I am currently sober and living a healthy succesful life, but that is no thanks to the ranch or copac. Looking back now I ...


This place is awful! So many things to say about this place. Do not go if you only need a medical detox because YOU want to get off of a prescribed medicine from your doctor.


Worst ever! N bet send your loved one here... Scared me away from recovery for ten years till I found good people-NOT HERE!!!


COPAC is the most unprofessional business I have delt with in my 34 years on this earth. Upon arriving, the personal information I provided over the phone was incorrect. I sat with them while they cor...


Unless you want to be thrown in an apartment with a bunch of chain smoking misfits, do not go to Copac. It\'s a horrible place to try and get sober. There are much better places to be than Copac. They...


After elements behavioral health stepped in and staff changed, this place was doomed. It is a "company" that is full of hopes and dreams with no potential at all. Working for Copac was a nightmare, to...


Exactly what I needed. Meals and nutrition are up to the individual, so it\'s hard to criticize. Amenities were humbling but adequate, made me appreciate home. Staff treated everyone the same, upfr...


Copac saved my life.


I have been completely appalled at the total lack of concern for me, the wife. In their information they talk about their family week that addresses the family and provides counseling for patients wi...


I can\'t speak for the effectiveness of treatment as that has yet to be shown but I can speak on how the staff mishandled financial information, mislead or blatantly lied to family members regarding a...


Great parents program but so expensive. Overall good experience, cost prohibitive for most people, we had to beg and borrow. Praising God for 2.5 years of sobriety.


Would not recommend this facility to anyone. Treated patients with no respect or dignity. Facility was dirty and unclean. Potential patient safety events. Some staff displayed unprofessional behavior ...


It seemed to be effective. The prices were bad. I didn't like it.


I felt there was negligence and a mistreatment of patients. Beware of corruption for profit... A LOT of profit.


Would recommend this place to get help.


Remote location. Okay price.


good place to send a loved one to recover.

Areas of Focus
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.
