Addiction & Mental Health Program

Private inpatient addiction rehab in British Columbia’s Rocky Mountains

Our holistic addiction treatment programs are thoughtfully designed to provide stability and support to those facing dual diagnoses of addiction and mental health disorders, while helping them build a solid foundation for sobriety.

In addition, we also help our patients understand substance abuse, why they became addicted in the first place, and what will be required to maintain recovery going forward. We guide and empower our patients as they discover their own meaning and purpose in a sober life.

Patient who come to Recovery Ranch for help will also benefit becoming a part of a community fully committed to long-termrecovery. Our medical team – including doctors, nurses, and counsellors – provide the care and guidance needed to help break-free from addiction.

Patients will also get the essential mental health support they need, addressing other challenges like depression and anxiety. Through evidence-based treatment, patients will develop the skills and habits to not only achieve, but maintain recovery – for life.

Plus, program peers will offer empathy, encouragement, and support as alumni embark on your lifelong journey, both during and outside of sessions.

Morning

Patients will wake up to experience group meditation and check-in. After enjoying a healthy breakfast prepared by Red Seal-certified chefs, you will enjoy some free time and attend an inspiring lecture from others in the recovery community. Then, you’ll cap off the morning by participating in one-on-one counselling or a self-assessment group, where you’ll review your goals and progress with your counsellor and peers.

Next, a skills group gives patients the chance to practice DBT, boundary setting, and gratitude. Depending on where patients are in their program, they may also work on relapse prevention skills. Afterwards, they will have time for peer interaction.
