  • Nice house, lots of things to do in your spare time. The techs were not so bad until they would try to get into the drama among the guest. Some times I would get a one on one from my counselor and sometimes I wouldn't. I feel as if favoritism was played a lot. They also promise that your counselor will give you a call after you get out at a week, 30 days, 90 days, then a year. I am still waiting on my call and it has been over a year. I will say that I have not relapsed so something must've gone right.

  • If you are seeking true recovery, stray away from this place. They bill themselves as a "luxury substance abuse recovery" when in reality, it's just a big house on a lot of property. They bought a residential house and made it a rehab. If luxury equals a twin bed in a shared room, then yeah, its luxury. I had to be detoxed at a separate facility about an hour away after arriving because I didn't meet admission guidelines. This is a residential program ONLY. The "nursing staff" consists mainly of CNAs. The head nurse has a terrible attitude problem as well as a distinct musty odor that is very unpleasant. If you have any issues, don't take them to the Director. The ONLY redeeming quality is the food. The kitchen staff is excellent. Since my stay at Ripple, I have relapsed. After relapsing, I received little support from Ripple. I made my way to another facility and am going on 2 months sober after leaving. Please do your research before signing up for something that appears shiny and pretty. The program itself is pretty awful.

  • Overall, a very good facility with a positive, constructive approach. They approach your given malady from many angles and therefore the patient is more likely to recognize and appreciate his or her situation. I loved it. The 12-step, 28 day lockdown facilities are dated and absurd. Ripple's 12 patient maximum, 1 to 4 counsellor/patient ratio is more than wonderful. I would recommend RR Recovery to anyone who is looking for a start to a better/sober way of living.
