An Individualized Approach to Addiction Treatment

Individuals who are dealing with drug or alcohol addiction in or around Orange County, California have a treatment option at Ranch Creek Recovery. Individual treatment plans, a holistic approach to addiction treatment and luxury amenities are just a few of the reasons to choose Ranch Creek Recovery when considering substance abuse treatment centers. Find out more about the addiction treatment services at our location below.

At Ranch Creek Recovery, our goal is always to provide an individual level of care that works for the people we’re serving. One-size-fits-all is never an approach that works with mental health or addiction treatment programs, and we don’t expect everyone who comes into our residential program to have the same needs or goals for recovery.

One example of personalized programs is that the length of stay in our drug and alcohol detox and rehab programs vary. Some people stay for 30 days, while others stay for 60 or 90 days. A three-month program is often recommended for serious addiction. That’s because it can take 90 days to work through detox and rehab to a level that’s enough to support ongoing recovery in outpatient and aftercare settings.

But the truth is that the right length of rehab is the one that works for the individual. That’s why we work with each person coming to Ranch Creek Recovery to understand their needs and present a customized treatment plan.


Residential Addiction Treatment Options near Orange County

Our residential treatment centers near Orange County make it possible for you to break away from the environment and lifestyle that have contributed to keeping you in a cycle of addiction. A new location can make a huge difference when you’re trying to overcome a substance abuse issue for a number of reasons, including:

  • It creates a big change in your environment. In some cases, that might mean removing you from a situation that actively drives or encourages you to abuse drugs or other substances. Even if your daily environment doesn’t encourage drug use or cause stress or other triggers that lead to substance abuse, a sudden change in environment can cause a “shock” that makes it easier for you to switch gears and positively approach rehab.
  • It helps you focus on addiction treatment. An environment where you can focus mostly on yourself can be important in the early part of rehab. This may sound selfish, but it’s not about putting yourself above others. It’s about making time and space to intensively attend to your physical and mental health, work out root causes and triggers and develop better coping mechanisms. When you’re not also trying to attend to work, social and family obligations, you can do a better job at the tasks involved in drug addiction treatment.
  • It can help you feel secure and safe. Our luxury environment helps you feel comfortable and safe. You’ll be surrounded by supportive staff, which can help you feel secure as you go through the various stages of rehab near Orange County, CA. At the same time, our rehab center is designed to offer appropriate levels of privacy.

Outpatient Treatment Center Near Orange County

If a residential addiction treatment program is not necessary or possible, it’s often recommended that individuals seek help through our outpatient treatment option offered at Ranch Creek Recovery. Our outpatient rehab program meets in-person Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. or during the evening for 10 weeks. Additionally, virtual therapy options are also available.

Outpatient drug treatment programs allow individuals flexibility to continue their day-to-day responsibilities like work or schooling while attending sessions when it’s convenient for them. For individuals with mild to moderate addictions, outpatient addiction treatment can be a great option for getting them back on track to a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle.

What Addiction Treatment Do We Provide Near Orange County?

When it comes to Orange County rehab, we offer a comprehensive level of service. Our addiction treatment center provides treatment for a wide variety of addictions as well as co-occurring disorders. If you’re seeking addiction treatment for any of the issues below, the professional staff at Ranch Creek Recovery can help.

Alcohol abuse

Alcohol addiction exists, and it impacts a large number of people. Some people chalk alcohol abuse up to poor habits or a lack of willpower when it comes to drinking, but the reality is that it’s a much more serious issue. Like many other addictions, it can impact the brain and body and change how a person functions, thinks and acts. If you’re struggling with alcohol abuse, treatment for alcohol addiction can help you bring your life back into control and look forward to a more positive future.

Illicit drug use

Cocaine, meth, heroin, fentanyl and other illicit street drugs can be extremely addictive. In some cases, individuals begin to become physically dependent on some of these drugs after only one or a few uses. Getting caught in the cycle of addiction can be a rapid descent into drug abuse, illegal activity and potentially life-threatening situations. A residential drug detox and rehab program can be a way out of that cycle.

Prescription drug abuse

Prescription pain relievers and anxiety medications are just some examples of legal drugs that can become addicting and may cause someone to seek them out illegally to continue to support an addiction.

Co-occurring disorders

Many times, drug or alcohol abuse is related to mental health issues. Individuals who are experiencing disorders such as depression or anxiety may attempt to self-medicate with drugs or alcohol. Constant use of substances in this way can lead to addiction. Treating the addiction is obviously important, but if the mental health disorder that was a root cause for the substance abuse isn’t also treated, you may find yourself back in the same boat. In other cases, depression, anxiety or other issues may be side effects of the addiction. The staff at Ranch Creek Recovery is experienced in dual diagnosis situations, so they can evaluate the situation and help decide on the right approach to treatment.

Holistic Treatment for Alcohol and Drug Addiction Near Orange County

Ranch Creek Recovery is a non-12-step recovery program that takes a holistic approach to treat addiction near Orange County, CA. The entire person is important, and we never just treat the addiction. We know that to provide effective treatment for addiction, we have to consider the entire person.

We treat the body, mind and spirit. Some of the ways we provide comprehensive, holistic treatment for substance abuse issues include:

  • A full range of treatment services. To truly meet the needs of every individual, we offer residential, outpatient and relapse prevention services. We also provide detox services and education for families. After all, the family is an extension of the person. If families don’t know how to support someone who’s in recovery, it can dramatically impact the person’s chances of long-term success.
  • Various types of therapy. What works for one person might not be the best for others. We offer cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy.
  • Inclusive treatment. Our program includes LGBTQ-friendly alcohol and drug treatment.
  • Experiential therapy.

Staff: 4.5/5Owner, Director, therapists, nurses, counselors, and support staff are all really great. I had no issues with anyone in particular. They are all there to help you however they can. I found that everyone advocated for my well being, were available when I needed them, and did their best to support me, check in on me, and make sure I was happy and comfortable.(why not 5/5? They have had a bunch of turnover and need to update their website with their newer staff members and qualifications. Additionally the Doctors they partner with were not as thorough as I would have wanted, and were kind of pushy with medications)Program: 4/5Small groups for the win! You get a lot of attention if you need it. This is a Holistic approach rehab. They do not focus on any 12 step programs. You have daily classes with different counselors, focusing on the science behind addiction, anger management, talk therapy, art therapy, equine therapy, nutrition, and much more. You have one-on-one sessions twice a week with a Licensed Therapist, and you have access to a gym daily, with a yoga instructor and trainer coming a few times a week. You also have a docent that comes once a week to do sound therapy, and you can learn techniques such as tapping. They have 2 doctors on staff you will have Zoom appointments with, and someone is always present to distribute morning, afternoon, and bedtime medication. You can also always grab whomever is on-call to talk through any issues or questions you have.(why not 5/5? Overall I found that there was too much down-time. I got bored and restless with that much free time and I craved more structure. Additionally I thought that the family Zoom sessions could have served as a stronger resource for loved ones)Location: 4/5Murrieta is a quiet, tranquil area, with mountain views, a lot of farmland, and very little public noise to distract you. When you do leave the house, you get to visit a small farm that is very close by to interact with horses and goats, etc. You also have an outing on Saturdays for a few hours that allows you as a group to get out of the house. The immediate area has all the basic stores and activities you would want, like target/walmart/grocery/7-11/etc as well as mini golf, bowling... You do need to decide as a group where you want to go because you have 1 chaperone and need to stay together at all times.(why not 5/5? There are 2 different houses located about 10 minutes away from each other. The Bass house advertised on the website is much nicer and larger than the Doreen house. During my time the clients staying at the Doreen house were shuttled over to the Bass house for our daily classes and sessions, not being able to utilize their own kitchen, rooms, and bathrooms during the day. I was also told by clients that the Doreen house was not as nice as the Bass House)Amenities: 4/5Pool - (I was there in the winter, so it was not heated and basically unusable, however, I did do some cold plunges just for the shock)Hot tub - available once a week on Friday eveningsYard - Large Grass Backyard and cement patio with tables and chairsGym - Available daily. TV for movies or music. Free weights, yoga mats, and a few outdated cardio machines that mostly worked.Kitchen - Large kitchen, multiple Fridges/Freezers, Huge pantry for preparing anything you want, ovens, microwave, toasters, dishwasher, outdoor gas grill, etc...Pool table, ping pong table, arts and crafts table, outdoor TV, Indoor TV, Computer, land-line house phone.Comfortable rooms and bathrooms with laundry access, and provided bedding and towels.(why not 5/5? I was disappointed that it wasn't clear that the pool and hot tub didn't have daily access as advertised, and that the gym was more outdated than described/pictured. They also could make some very inexpensive recreation investments like a basketball for their outdoor hoop, soccer ball, frisbees, croquet set, bocce, etc for their giant lawn to be used during the extensive downtime)

Ranch Creek Recovery is the best way to start your new healthy way of life. This program actually saved my life and my sanity. Their Holistic approach was amazing and I learned so much from my counselors and Dr. Dena. With only a limited number of participants in the house at one time, you are guaranteed the one on one time, as well as the group counseling they offer in a safe and comfortable setting. They make you aware that they truly care and are there to support you , listen to you, and most important to teach you. Teach you information about triggers, cognitive behavior and how to stay sober. They include therapy through others means such as Yoga, Meditation, working with Horses and even Physical Training. Ranch Creek makes sure when you leave you are good, Mind, Body and Soul. They have an excellent Intensive Outpatient Program (10) weeks that helps navigate your way back into life. A year ago (received my one year chip June 8, 2022) I was lost and a raging out of control alcoholic. I can proudly say today that I am not. I will always be an alcoholic with an addictive personality. But now I have tools, personal contacts and the faith in myself that I have never had before in my 9 years searching for sobriety. I often reflect back on my time at the Bass house. I am probably one of the few that actually stayed 60 days because I had so much to learn. My insurance did not cover all of the last days, but it was worth it to me, so I stayed. I am so grateful to so many of the staff, Jimmie, Christine, Jonathon, Dr. Dena and countless extended staff to name a few, because there were more. I would not be here to tell you it works, because without the treatment and the help I received, I alive today to tell my journey. If you are ready to face the truth, please give them a call. I promise if you are committed, you will never be the same as when you walked in. Thank you Ranch Creek Recovery.

I had long term sobriety and was under a lot of stress from my professional position. I began to use cannabis recreationally and soon became dependent. I sought recovery, because I could not stop using cannabis on my own. It was causing issues with my family and in my professional life. I signed up with Rancho Creek Recovery, through my insurance. I attended the pm IOP zoom sessions with Lorri. Her group sessions and the materials she provided, helped me to get off of cannabis. Lorri was a big help in giving me strategies to stay sober and to manage the cravings and ways to deal with my work stress. I would strongly recommend Rancho Creek Recovery's outpatient program and the pm IOP zoom sessions with Lorri. She was a great professional to work with.

I've had a few stints with rehab and none even skinned the surface of what I learned here. Located on a beautiful property in the foothills of Murrieta, with in house groups led by instructors that break it down so in depth. My perspective had a total shift and I can honestly say I owe my life and the promise of a new future to this facility and it's faculty. If you're willing to do the work this is the place to get into your core issues and help you recover from the lifestyle and vices that one is addicted to. I recommend this place to anyone who wants something different from life. DBT, CBT, recovery education, family therapy are just a few of the groups and The program director and Clinical director hand picked a team that is progressive, informed, patient, caring and passionate about what they do. I encourage anyone who's seeking treatment to look into this program I first hand watched others and had my life transformed.

Coming to Ranch Creek Recovery, I had been through three different inpatient chemical treatment facilities in CA. I was feeling lost and somewhat hopeless. The serene setting gave me peace and I began healing. The counselors were very inspiring and helped me grow in ways I haven’t experienced in years. I began to see the bigger picture that a life in sobriety can give you. Although I am somewhat scared to leave the comfort and security that Ranch Creek Recovery and staff has brought me, I am also excited to share my growth with my family and to start my new life. Thank you RCR!
