The Liberty Ranch

The Liberty Ranch Kings Mountain Kentucky

The Liberty Ranch believes in providing well rounded treatment that addresses the complex mental health conditions that go along with addiction while simultaneously helping clients build a strong foundation in a 12-step program. The emphasis at the Ranch is placed on helping the individual identify and change the behavior patterns that are causing them to relapse while developing healthier and adaptive behaviors conducive to sobriety. Through the help of experienced peer support specialists and licensed clinicians, residents gain a working knowledge of their triggers and have a set of tools that help them successfully live their life sober and to good purpose.

Set in the hills of rural Kentucky, in the community of Kings Mountain, the Liberty Ranch offers short- and long-term structured transitional living for adults struggling with substance abuse disorders. The facility is a peer-run, community-based center, where staff members are in also in active recovery. Next to the structured transitional living facility is the Liberty Ranch Rehabilitation Center, where residents go to receive clinically based services such as substance abuse treatment classes, psychotherapy, and family counseling. These services are also available to people in the community who are not residential.

ABOUT THE LIBERTY RANCH

Set in the hills of rural Kentucky, in the community of Kings Mountain, the Liberty Ranch offers short- and long-term residential treatment for adults struggling with substance abuse disorders. The facility is a peer-run, community-based center, where staff members are in also in active recovery.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment at the Liberty Ranch is firmly rooted in the 12-Steps — how to integrate 12-step principles into daily life — and the notion that sustained recovery requires personal change. The center teaches residents integrity, self-respect, accountability, honesty, and self-sufficiency.

In addition to daily 12-step meetings, clients participate in peer groups, goal setting, resident meetings, as well as recreational activities, such as hiking, fishing, and volleyball. Topic-specific group and individual counseling sessions are also held regularly.

The facility recommends 90 days or more of treatment, but also offers 30- or 60-day stays. Loved ones are encouraged to attend 12-step meetings, participate in the center’s weekly family group meetings, and build networks with families of clients in the program.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

As a community-led center, the facility employs staff members who are also in recovery, including many graduates of the Liberty Ranch. While most of programming is led by peers, the facility does provide therapy services that are facilitated by licensed and experienced professionals who are associated with the facility. The staff-to-client ratio is 1:4.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

The Liberty Ranch offers 32 beds in shared rooms in a 6,500-square-foot facility on 70 acres of rolling hills and woodlands. Men and women live in separate residences. Clients have access to a gym, basketball and tennis courts, trails, and fire pits. The center offers Internet access and, on most weekends, residents go on outings to local attractions, such as to the zoo, horse park, and scenic falls.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Of the over two dozen alumni polled at the time of this writing by Best-rehabs.com, most reviews were favorable. Many claimed their stay at the Liberty Ranch saved their lives, especially after having been in numerous other facilities beforehand. They frequently praised the longer length of stay and sense of community, as well as the ongoing support after graduation. “I found everything I was looking for in drugs and alcohol in sobriety: a sense of belonging, friends, acceptance, freedom,” M.M. wrote. Others noted that the long-term community living enabled them to gain essential life skills. Six alumni polled on the matters all offered perfect five-star ratings for the facility’s overall group counseling sessions, the effectiveness of lead counselors, and the facility’s ability to resolve conflict.

However, several warned against the facility’s short-term programs. “If you do not graduate this program which usually takes 12-14 months they will not have anything to do with you. They take away your support group,” D.D. wrote. Two individuals complained of a lack of free time and no privacy for calls home, although three alumni surveyed about family participation awarded this metric five out of five stars.

On Facebook, which the organization can manage, the Liberty Ranch earned 4.4 out of five stars from 69 reviews (alumni, loved ones) to date.[1] Of the total, 53, or 77 percent, rated the facility a perfect five stars. Reviewers praised the staff and support they received, such as J.B., who wrote: “The Ranch and its amazing staff has shown me the steps required to achieve life long sobriety and in turn has helped me get my life back” and added: “I highly recommend the Liberty Ranch to those who, like me, thought there was no hope.”

On Google, the facility received an average of 3.1 out of five stars from 11 reviews (alumni, staff) to date.[2] Several alumni complained of harsh treatment and “ridiculous rules and punishments” whereas others praised treatment as a life-saving experience, such as Maggie, now an employee: “I AM A PART OF THE SUCCESS RATE! If you honestly want help this is the place to go.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The over a dozen loved ones polled by Best-rehabs.com to date provided mixed feedback about the Liberty Ranch, though many reviewers praised staff members for being “very caring” and for their personal recovery journeys. Three loved ones who were polled on the matters gave perfect five-star ratings for the amount of family participation and for the staff’s level of experience and training.

Yet one reviewer noted a lack of exercise facilities, another complained of high staff turnover, and a third, D.V., wrote: “The clients go in broken and humiliated and they just keep beating them down,” though these comments were not supported by others. Six reviewers awarded four out of five stars or higher for the facility’s exercise and leisure activities.

FINANCING

The Liberty Ranch does not provide information about costs and insurance on its website, although it describes itself as “an affordable recovery center.”

Reviews about The Liberty Ranch

Such a horrible situation to put your child and or loved one. At the end of the day after 9 months of being there they kicked me out. I would not recommend this for anyone.
I first enterd the liberty house three years ago where I was confronted about who I am and what made me tick as a person, the only rehab that I have ever been to that focused on me as a person. I learned to deal with life there and was showed how to operate and live sober on a daily basis. Time, effort, and a great level of care was spent on me specifically where as any other rehab I was just another number. I am grateful for the ranch still to this day.

  • I am fortunate to have a story that involves the Liberty Ranch for Women and Alcoholics Anonymous. I lived a self-imposed miserable life before I got sober. I came to the realization that six other residential treatment centers were not enough so arriving at the seventh, The Liberty Ranch, I must try something different to get different results. Nine miserable years of drinking and using drugs really did a number on me. It took me a long time to get in the shape I was in and it was going to take a while to work out the kinks. The Liberty Ranch’s approach was the catalyst to maintaining long term sobriety. At the Ranch and in AA I’ve learned more about myself as the problem, about what behaviors I exhibit that will kill me, the lessons in surrender and faith necessary to continue maintaining sobriety and happiness. If all I needed was detox to be happy and productive I would have got sober six rehabs ago. Working on myself is an ongoing job, I will never have all the answers, the further along in sobriety I get I see that more and more. Life is baffling to an alcoholic like me. The Ranch taught me what accountability and responsibility mean and how the twelve steps are applicable in every part of my life. I was introduced to my disease and the implications of my behaviors. The residents and staff at the Ranch faced my disease head to head. They never gave up on me. July 19, 2010 was my last drink and drug. My foundation in recovery was cemented at The Ranch- building the life I have today is the fun part!

  • This is an amazing program. I have seen it not only change my own life but I’ve witnessed it change so many others. I am forever grateful for this program and because of it I have four years clean and sober, an amazing support group, a family and people that I know will never give up on me. I would recommend it to any friends, family or person struggling with alcohol or drug addiction!

  • Liberty Ranch was wonderful for our son. The house is so clean and new. He recently graduated and is so proud. Along with helping him with his addiction, they have taught him responsibility, how to do things for himself, and even some things on how to be a man. We highly recommend this place!

  • Liberty Ranch for Women saved my daughter's life. It is not an easy program, nor is it quick, but it is tremendously effective. The staff is caring but no-nonsense.
    My experience with the Liberty Ranch was different from the rest. They encourage you to drop private insurance and pick up Medicaid. Stating that private insurance will not allow you to graduate the program, but Medicaid will. If this place really cared about the residents and not money seems to me they would tell you to file a claim with your private insurance and see what they will cover before you are kicked out due to lack of funds. This facility is not a dual diagnostic rehab. If you suffer from a mental disease this is not addressed at all. These same people were released due to not having Medicaid. I do not understand how this goes unreported, it’s my understanding in KY that everyone is a mandated reporter for the state. If someone threatens violence everyone is obligated to report it. If someone needs help at a dual diagnostic facility, it would only seem reasonable for the staff to realize they are not equipped to handle that person’s recovery and recommend a better facility. This place is a money racket and not a rehab facility. They are not family friendly like it states. I never had a family therapy session or group therapy other than IOP. Group therapy did exist at the house, however due to the fact I had private insurance and not Medicaid I was not allowed to participate. This place is very cult like, everyone that graduates ends up working there. Just a weird environment all together.
    First of all I want to state that my name is Brandy Corder and I am the Clinical Program Director at The Liberty Ranch Rehabilitation Center and I am rebutting the false statements made by “A”, whomever this individual may be, as they are hiding behind a semblance of anonymity by not disclosing who they truly are and this is deceitful. At the Liberty Ranch we often encounter parents who continue enabling behavior and refuse to take part in the family portion of services we offer and often become resentful when we do not change our structure to suit them resulting in the resident being discharged. The parent’s behavior then becomes a barrier to the resident’s ability to succeed. As far as a resident not being allowed to participate in a group due to payor source, this is completely false. All services provided are tailored to each individual client’s needs as assessed upon entry and as are covered by insurance and/or private pay. No employee of any of our facilities have ever encouraged any resident or client to drop any insurance to pick up state funded insurance as this would be fraudulent and we are a reputable and ethical service provider. The accusation that residents have been released due to not having Medicaid is also blatant LIE as we accept all forms of insurance and all are verified before entry to any of our facilities. Secondly, It is true that everyone in the state of Kentucky, including all residents are all mandated reporters of any violence, intent to harm self or others. This being stated, each and every time that a reporting issue has occurred it has been reported and individuals have received inpatient treatment as per state law. Our facility is a dual diagnosis facility and works with many individuals who suffer from co-occurring disorders. We work with many psychiatrists, psychologists and other mental health service providers as well as in-house service providers. If an issue is too severe to be treated by our staff a referral is ALWAYS made. A higher level of care has been sought and in instances where individuals were manipulating and not an actual threat to self or others they were released by said higher level of care with discharge papers stating that residents are not at risk before we allowed them back into our facilities. It is simply an untrue statement that we are not equipped to handle dual diagnosis as we have proven time and time again that client care is our top priority (such as an 82% success rate among graduates) to help individuals get their lives back on track and learn how to live sober and productive lives and many go on to pursue careers here at our facilities as successful individuals (not at all like a cult, but as supporters of change). We always promote from within to maintain continuity in our processes as this is NOT UNLIKE any sober living home in the country! As far as being family friendly, we absolutely are! We have weekly multi-family counseling groups from 9-10 on Saturdays, then family group meeting from 10:30-12:00 followed up with a family potluck and visits for residents with family members. Residents’ families also have a weekly Facebook Al-Anon meeting from our facility that they have the opportunity to participate in to receive support. I am uncertain how much more The Liberty Ranch could do to be more family friendly.

  • The Liberty Ranch is by far the best facility I have ever been too. The staff there never gives up on the residents. When I got to the ranch my life was a disaster I had legal trouble,financial trouble, and I was lost and broken. I probably would not have made it much longer, I had no idea how to live.They taught me how to be honest, hard working, accountable, hold myself to a higher standard, they introduced me to the AA program and the structure of the facility follows the principles of the AA program. So I learned to work and live the program on a daily basis. They showed me that you will get out what you put in, so I put my all in and it worked for me. I am so grateful that my family found this place for me and that I stayed, because the ranch has shown me a new way of living and I am proud to be part of this program. I am thankful for all this place has done for me, it�s one of a kind and a true blessing in my life. And I have made some of the best friends I have ever had in this program and a whole support system ! The strengths of the facility are they do everything in their power to help someone get and stay sober they never give up on residents and go above and beyond for residents and are always available to the residents.

  • LIBERTY Ranch in Kings Mountain points residents in ONE direction...ONE way of living...CLEAN AND SOBER. Our son was able to commit to recovery only after he graduated from LIBERTY RANCH. He lives a new life with other graduates with which our son has made connections in able to help keep him accountable. This community is strong with AA and in following the 12 steps. This place has LOTS of inspiring reviews, parent SUPPORTS, STAFF guidance, and RECOVERING ADDICTS. Definitely a strength that the staff are recovering addicts themselves...helps them know EXACTLY the mind of the addict. Staff can NOT be manipulated. LIBERTY RANCH is located way beyond any civilization that could jeopardize my son's sobriety. I loved how residents live around meetings and group work. Fantastic consequences, record keeping, genuine concerns for residents, and NO fear in calling out someone for any type of wrong doing. I wanted more physical activities for my son at first. But then I realized LIBERTY RANCH was working more with correcting my son's MIND. I would have liked to see more yoga in the building with the groups, but that may still occur in their future. I know LIBERTY RANCH is constantly improving and changing for the better. I see it.

  • I came to the Liberty to after a ten year period of using hard drugs and alcohol. I had been to 7 or 8 other treatment facilities prior to this but they were nothing like the experience that I have had here at the Liberty Ranch. I had tried everything that I knew of and nothing was working for me. I quickly realized that this place was different and I was not going to be able to fly under the radar here. The guys here were different than other places, they were truly wanting to be sober and they also had something that I wanted they were actually happy in sobriety. I needed the structure and accountability that this place provides in order to begin my road to recovery. Most importantly the ranch taught me how to live life on life's terms and do all the things that I never thought I could do without drugs and alcohol. I have never been sober more than 30 days prior to the ranch and now I am 5 months sober and feel positive about what my future holds. Change is mandatory here..its that simple.

  • I have been around to see so many changed lives because of the Liberty Ranch and the hard work of the staff. The staff here are recovering addicts so they can relate to the residents in the facility. I have had family and friends graduate from the program here. The staff take the time to peel back the layers and get down to the core causes of why they use. It's amazing to watch the residents and families who came in torn apart from this disease follow direction of the staff and the healing process takes hold. Families are united back together in a healthy way when they follow the direction given.

  • When I came into the Liberty Ranch for Women 8 years ago, I was broken, hopeless and at deaths door. I was full of fear that my life was as good as it was going to ever be. It wasn't easy but I knew something had to change. I had to do things that I was unwilling to do before. One day at a time and on my HP time, things started to change for me. I trusted that the managers and residents that was here longer than I, knew what was best for me. I was incapable of making healthy decisions for myself. Through house groups and one on one's I learned about myself and my defects that hindered my life for years. I have worked at the facility for 7 years now and it continues to be apart of my daily life and support system. I enjoy working with other women and family members and passing on what was given to me.

  • While at the ranch I learned how to be a mom, how to be a friend, how to love others and most importantly how to love myself! Thank God for d everyone at the ranch that showed me how to live and gave my kids a mom they can look up to. I went in originally for 30 days to "clear my head". And after 2 weeks I committed to graduate. It was the best decision I ever made. I'm grateful to be a part of the graduate community and I'm surrounded by others just like me that share the same struggles and hold me accountable on a daily basis. Without the ranch I would be dead or in jail there's no doubt.
    I came from Cincinnati Ohio I thought that there was no hope for me that I wouldn’t amount to anything then I came to the liberty ranch where they throw struggles my way and I was able to accomplish them with out using anything I am a current resident and got 1 year sober on the 24th of February from the help of the ranch and everyone there I have everything back plus more I have my family friends I can trust a place I can come to and call home the best place I have ever came to I’m able to deal with life without running away and using a substance all thanks to the liberty ranch I recommend anyone who is looking for help for yourself or someone to come to the liberty ranch

  • Thank GOD for Liberty Ranch. I went through the program in 2013 and my life has never been the same since. After being to several other treatments before, nothing would work, when I got to the Ranch I was hopeless, now 5 years later I can honestly say That Liberty Ranch saved my life. It is by far the best place to go, or send a love one, if you honestly want to recover. The staff is great and the dynamic of the program is exactly what I needed to change my life. I cant say enough good things about The Ranch and the love, acceptance and care that they show. Its rare that you find people who honestly want to help others. The Ranch is one of those places. Thanks for saving my life Liberty Ranch!!

  • I have 10 months sober today thanks to the Liberty Ranch I personally have learned so much about myself! I have learned how to have fun in sobriety, for example going to the Red River Gorge and jumping off rocks, swimming in our pool, bonfires at the fire pit, going to the movies, and most importantly learning the true meaning of happiness. I have friends today, ones who actually care for me and want to see me succeed. The twelve steps have been incorporated in my every day life, which teaches me the proper way to cope with life. I came to the ranch at eighteen so if I can do it any one can!
    I never believed my life could have so much meaning, and impact on others. Today I have fifty six days sober, I thought because I am 40 yrs. old that it would be impossible for me to find recovery. Yet through the twelve steps I have found a higher power that has yet to fail me. I have fun with the other girls in the house & today they are my family. My financial situation is not the prettiest, but the staff and owner have found a way for me to continue my treatment. I do believe that my higher power which I choose to call God, has put the Ranch in my life. That everything that I thought was impossible is now at arms reach. My life is now something to be proud of, and this is just the beginning!

  • I came to the Liberty Ranch with nothing, I was broken down and had no hope. This place has shown me that there is hope. I recently graduated this program and through the process I have made life-long friends who support me in making right decisions, I have built back my relationship with my family, and I have learned how to be a productive member of society. This 12-step based program has given me the tools to live a happy and healthy life. I would recommend it for anyone who is truly ready to change their life

  • There are no words to describe how grateful I will forever be for The Liberty Ranch. This place saved my life. I entered the ranch in 2012 and i was a shell of a person, trying to get sober for all of the wrong reasons. The longer I stayed the more involved I became in my own life and my own recovery. I have a relationship with my family now. I have friendships that are real! I am employable. My bills are paid. All of these things were impossible for me to do before i entered the ranch. I know my worth and am now 24 years old with 5 years of sobriety. I had been to other facilities before and it did not work. Not because i wasn't ready to get sober, I wasn't ready to get sober before i entered the ranch either but because they dug deep and helped me discover the root of my problems and taught me how to apply solution to them. The staff members had all been where i had been and had real life solution. Thank you Liberty Ranch for my life back.

  • I recently graduated the Liberty Ranch and it saved my life. I struggled with drug addiction for most of my life. I even tried to join the military and that didn't work but what did work was the amazing staff and structure of the ranch. Lucky for me my family found an affordable place and put me on a plane to Kentucky. At first I thought I wouldn't fit in because I was from New Jersey but the complete opposite happened I was welcomed with open arms and people that related with me and my own issues. The Ranch saved my life and I appreciate all that they do. I owe my life to this place.

  • The Liberty Ranch saved my life when my family or I could not. For the past 20 years I was trying to get sober and was not successful until coming here. The staff never gave up on me and they truly care about the residents. I have learned through my 12 months here how to stay sober and live life on life's terms. I am so grateful the ranch taught me to have fun in sobriety. We go on group activities every Friday!! I never had friends until coming here and the Ranch taught me how to have a friend and to be a friend. Now I am working as the resident manager and get to pass on what was so freely given to me.

  • I came to the Liberty Ranch, from California, in May 2016. I knew very little about drug and alcohol treatment, but I knew that I was an addict and that I needed help. My parents found out about LR from a friend, who’s son suffered from addiction and is a graduate of the program from a few years prior. I owe everything in my life today to the help and support that I have found at LR. They introduced me to alcholiocs anonymous, the 12 steps and nudged me along the whole way. They gave me living examples of what the 12 steps can do if you just stick with them. I am now coming up on two years of sobriety and owe that all to the love and support that I found at the LR.

  • I have been to 7 other treatment centers, a dozen IOPs, PHPs, and hospitalizations. You name it, I have tried it. Over the course of years, none of these places did much of anything for me. While I admit that I did not want these other treatment centers to work, I came into the Ranch with the same attitude. My thought process was; I will come here for 30 days, get my parents off my back and in no time I would be back at "the bottle" again. The Ranch had a different plan for me. You could write a book on The Ranch's approach to addiction and alcoholism. Long story short, through the years of drinking and drugging my mind was tainted. I was sick. I was a liar, a cheater, master manipulator, and as selfish as someone could be. Achieving long term sobriety is much more than removing drugs and alcohol from one's life. Incorporating the 12 steps and many years of experience, The Liberty Ranch showed me how to change. I will be forever grateful for The Liberty Ranch and everything they have given me. Hands down, the best place on earth for those afflicted with drugs and alcohol.
    Substitute the word "badgering" for "nurturing" wherever it occurs in AA literature and you'll have a pretty good idea of Liberty Ranch's approach.

  • Liberty Ranch uses what I call the Wax On Wax Off technique. The residents are given the opurtunity to learn structure and accountability to others. While doing this they are mentored by staff of highest quality. It is my belief that they will to the best of their ability provied an opurtunity for you or your loved one to over come addiction. If you want a vacation go somewhere else if you want to get sobor go to Liberty Ranch

  • Fantastic place, and somewhat affordable, no insurance accepted..which i find suspicious. This is a long term treatment center, and it only works as that. If you are looking for something short term and can absolutely not do long-term, find someplace else. If you are willing to do whatever it takes, or however long it takes, then you have found the right place. The food is absolutely terrible, zero nutrition, cafeteria food really. It's in the middle of nowhere, the meetings in the area are not very good. But the place/program are truly something special. You/loved one will learn how to be accountable and have integrity as well as how to be self supporting. It is a good slow-integration back into society. Only thing is, the society you be integrating to there, kinda stinks. Country and slow paced life, not many career opportunities, but if you are young and can do that life for a little while you get on your feet its great. The pros absolutely outweigh the cons. This place works, bottom line. BUT you have to stay the year. If you do 30-90 days it won't be worth it, there are much better 30-90 day options out there.

  • I have mixed feelings on this place! Don't get me wrong it did save my life, but a lot of false advertisement on the website. It's not your typical "ranch". Their are no horses. The meals are the same every single week. If you do not graduate this program which usuall takes 12-14 months they will not have anything to do with you. They take away your support group and you are not allowed to communicate with the residents that helped you stay sober. i am not sure why the offer short term treatment. But unless you are wanting to stay and graduate steer away from this facility.

  • I have remained sober ever since I left. I use what I learned there to this day to have a better life. Aftercare- specific after-care instruction involving continued participation in the program as a graduate on a voluntary basis. I know people who have been in various programs all around the country, and there is no program that dedicates as much to each individual resident as the the Liberty Ranch does. I have been clean and sober for over 7 years because of what I learned during my time there. I still go there a few times a month to participate in groups, and I mentor/sponsor people that are currently in treatment there.

I would recommend anyone struggling to come and give yourself the chance to be free from the shackles of addiction. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about or use the tools I learned at the Liberty Ranch. I am eternally in debt, and grateful for the life I have today and it is a direct result of the time and patience the residents and staff at the Liberty Ranch were willing to give to me. Many people get sober in many ways, but I am truly blessed that I made the decision to come here and change my life. I had spent the better part of the past 20 years in and out of AA, NA, CR, detox facilities and jail. I was addicted to cocaine and opiates and was using them both intravenously. I lost custody of my child, lost faith and trust from family and friends because of all the dishonest and selfish ways I hurt and stole from them. I literally wanted to die but was too afraid to end my own life. My life defined in two words was chaos and misery. The Liberty Ranch taught me how to live life again; how to level my pride, how to walk through fear, the importance of honesty, how to be self sufficient, and gave me the gift of a conscience and caring about others. And it's because of those things I stay sober today. The time and patience that staff is willing to give in dissecting the disease of addiction and how it manifests itself in our lives is unparalleled. As a graduate of the program I now have almost 2 years of sobriety, I get to see my daughter and spend as much time as I want with her and be the father she deserves. I've worked the 12 steps and have a sponsor, and I currently have 6 sponsees whom I am guiding through the 12 steps as well. I live in my own place, I pay my own bills, and I am generally happy and content, but the big difference now is that when I'm not, and life throws curveballs at me, I know how to handle and how to deal with life on life's terms. Anyone who wants a better life than what they have, I would encourage you to take that first step and ask for help it is achievable. For me, I don't think I could've gotten sober anywhere else.

  • The staff went above and beyond! This place saved my life! They are the most caring, honest, hard working staff and residents I have ever seen or heard of. They inspired me to grow! And to keep growing!
    When I called the lady that was working, she talked to me for hours and checked on me the days I was detoxing before I came in. They weren't about the money on the phone. They were out of concern and reminding me I'm not alone in this. The care in her voice was my decision to come to the liberty ranch for women. It helped me get sober and stay sober. It's been over 3 years. I'm forever grateful for the liberty ranch! If it has helped me and the other women and men that are sober from the liberty ranch I know it works. I still go back and visit the residents and help the women. It works and I recommend who ever wants help to come to the liberty ranch. When I walked into the Liberty Ranch for women. I was scared, broken down. I didn't know how to live. Before I got sober I'd wake up and my number one priority was to buy drugs, or steal to buy what I needed. I had no friends, no one wanted to be around me. I even hated myself. And when I came to the ranch, they taught me how to love myself, become an independent woman. Care for others, help the new comers. Shoot I didn't know how to be responsible with anything. And I learned that. I now have so many friends thru that place. I am now responsible where I actually have a job and pay my bills. I have a roof over my head and I'm not homeless. While I was there I committed to graduate there program. My family could see me on the weekends. I was allowed to go visit my family on passes. While In the house we would have a night where we had activity which was always fun to get out go bowling or anything that's fun. This place changed my life and I'm actually happy. I don't need a drink or drug to enjoy life. The liberty ranch helped me grow into a young responsible sober woman. I'm forever grateful for this!

  • I had never worked a program or been able to stay sober more than 30 days before coming to the Liberty Ranch, but now I have almost 2 years sober and am surrounded by a sober support group which I have never found before. It taught me how to live sober and manage my life and taught me about my disease of alcoholism. I learned what I need to work on in myself to get better.
