- Extra perks
For many people, the program setup at Renaissance Ranch is ideal. Not only does it use the 12-step recovery model, but its LDS foundation is unique and helps patients heal both spiritually and physically. It treats both LDS and non-LDS patients, helping them through both residential care and aftercare. For patients who prefer an outpatient program, that is available too.
Another positive aspect of these programs is that its ranch-like facilities are meant to be calming for patients. The staff at these facilities are available around the clock, and there are several areas around each campus where patients can meet with support groups, get their energy out through recreation, and gain some peace.
Renaissance Ranch offers intervention services that won’t cost you any extra money, and they won’t charge for assessments at the beginning of recovery. When you become a patient, you essentially sign a lifetime contract indicating that you are ready to make this change for the rest of your life, with the organization’s help.
- No detox services
For various reasons, the fact that Renaissance Ranch is LDS-based can also be a deterrent for some patients. It does ask that patients keep an open mind to go through its 12-step program, but if patients are not interested in that model or in implementing teachings from the Church, this program may not be right.
No Detox Services
Another con for the organization is that it doesn’t offer detox services. Instead, it asks that patients come to its facility already detoxed and ready to begin the next phase of rehabilitation. With such a difficult process, that can be a deal breaker, since it’s helpful to have medical staff help you.
