The Enterhealth Ranch addiction recovery staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide clear, straightforward answers to your questions and to assist with the admission process. We want to make sure you have all the information you need to begin your journey through recovery.
The Enterhealth Inpatient Experience
For each residential patient, our team of board-certified, addiction-trained physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, and Masters-/PhD-level therapists conduct a thorough medical and psychological assessment that identifies the severity of the disease as well as any co-occurring psychiatric conditions such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and chronic pain syndromes.
Based on these comprehensive assessments, our team will develop a personalized treatment plan for each patient and any applicable family member(s). The Enterhealth Ranch inpatient experience is structured and organized around these individualized treatment programs and designed to minimize stress and provide the safest and most supportive environment for healing and recovery.
Because each treatment plan is unique, the times at which you receive one-on-one therapy and medical care may vary. However, group activities can be expected to follow a set schedule for everyone.
A typical day and week
Weekdays begin early, starting with time for personal activities before breakfast. Patients complete a daily self-report and attend a didactic group until lunch.
Afternoons feature a variety of classes, small groups, yoga, spiritual classes and other educational offerings, followed by time for recreational activities such as swimming, gym use, and others.
The evening begins with dinner and time to use the phone to keep in touch with family and business needs. Support meetings such as AA and SMART Recovery are the final activities before leisure time and sleep.
Weekends follow a similar structure, but with time for family visitation and recreation added in, as well as fewer classes. Group family therapy takes place every Sunday for families who wish to participate.
Our schedule is designed to encourage healthy habits that are intended to become routine once you return home. Maintaining a reasonable bedtime allows for a good night’s sleep, which helps the brain and body recover at night and naturally increases alertness and focus during the day.
Nutritious meals and snacks, coupled with an active lifestyle, will keep you feeling great for years to come. With everyone at the Ranch maintaining the same great habits together, these positive changes soon become second nature.
Length of stay
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), outcomes for residential or outpatient treatment programs are more successful when an individual participates for 90 days or more. NIDA recommends even longer-term treatment to maintain sobriety, but acknowledges that treatment of any length is a step in the right direction.
The first step, detox, may take between 3 and 14 days, and is widely variable based on the abused substance type. The length of detox can affect the total length of stay needed. Detox alone is not considered treatment; you need to be medically stable, safe and comfortable in order to participate in therapies and treatments at Enterhealth Ranch.
We know that time is one of the greatest assets your brain can use to heal. While your treatment plan will be unique, we recommend a minimum stay of 45 days to make lasting improvement.
A wide range of effective therapies
Individual psychological and behavioral therapy is a main component of each patient’s stay.
Other therapies we offer include:
