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!

Sub-Acute Detox from Opiates

To help you get control of your life and prevent many negative consequences of opioid use disorder, going to a professional opioid detox center like Ranch Creek sooner rather than later is crucial.

There’s hope and recovery available for those going through opioid rehab. Receiving an opiate medication assisted treatment, or a natural, holistic addiction treatment, can help reduce opioid withdrawal symptoms, and get the person through the first phase of healing.

Once the individual has completed the sub-acute detox from opiates, the opioid treatment programs available will include assessments, individual therapy, group therapy, holistic and experiential therapies, and support and guidance.

Holistic and Experiential Therapies

Although traditional and medical approaches to substance abuse will continue to have a place among treatment options, they aren’t always enough. Incorporating holistic and experiential therapies into your drug abuse treatment program can help you get clean and stay clean long-term.

The reason these therapies are so effective is that they go beyond cleaning up the current addiction and focus on improving the entire mindset. Holistic and experiential therapy options available from Ranch Creek Recovery include equine therapy, yoga, amino acid therapy and gong sound therapy.

Equine Therapy

You may hear equine therapy called equine-assisted addiction treatment or equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP). This animal-assisted therapy option utilizes the same essential idea as service dogs or emotional support animals. With EAP, interactions with horses are used to help people cope with stress and trauma by providing a safe environment to do so.

Equine therapy is often used to treat mental health conditions but can also be used to handle the stress of withdrawal symptoms or address the underlying reasons for drug abuse. Additional benefits of EAP include improved mood and emotional regulation over time.


Yoga is a practice that focuses on physical movement, deep breathing, and mindfulness — all of which aid in addiction recovery. Substance abuse can take a toll on the body, and practicing yoga can help you achieve physical healing. The deep breathing and mindfulness exercises that go with yoga can also help clear your head and provide a healthier way to cope with your emotions.

Beyond aiding in addiction recovery, yoga provides numerous physical and mental benefits. A few physical benefits include better circulation, lower blood pressure, improved cardiovascular health and increased immune functioning. The mental benefits of yoga include clarity, calmness and improved concentration.

Amino Acid Therapy

When proteins break down, amino acids are the result. Some amino acids aren’t readily available in your normal diet and need to be supplemented in a more concentrated form. However, proteins — and the resulting amino acids — are crucial to your overall health and physical well-being.

As mentioned above, addiction can place great stress on the body and greatly decrease your physical well-being. But you may wonder what role amino acid therapy plays in reversing those effects.

Amino acid therapy focuses on using these acids to improve the natural production (and function) of your body’s neurotransmitters. This means they can help your body produce serotonin and improve other key body functions. In turn, it can help those struggling with addiction by improving their physical and mental health.

Gong Sound Therapy

Music has been used throughout history to comfort the soul. Some promising new studies show there’s actually scientific evidence to support this age-old belief. How? Science shows that sound vibrations can help heal (or restructure) the energetic and physical bodies.

Gong sound therapy is used for exactly this purpose: to promote emotional, physical, and spiritual healing. The gong is used because it’s known to be one of the most powerful musical instruments, with one of the most healing vibrations.

The benefits of this holistic therapy often include feeling a deep sense of peace and relaxation. It also releases blocked energies and balances your body’s energy centers. Finding inner peace and balance is a crucial part of maintaining sobriety.

Inpatient Opioid Rehab with One-on-One Care

Many treatment centers offer opioid treatment but each of them is different. When you begin to review all your opiate rehab and detox treatment options, it’s important to ask questions about the program that will help you understand what to expect.

  • How many clients are in the drug addiction treatment program together at any given time?
  • What are your maximum group sizes?
  • Does your program offer individual assessments and therapy by licensed clinicians?
  • Have you previously participated in a 12-step-based or non-12-step based treatment program?

These substance abuse treatment questions will help you identify how individualized the treatment program really will be for you or your loved one. If you’re in a program with 12, 20, or even 30 other people, you most likely won’t receive highly individualized opiate abuse treatment and attention that you deserve and need.

Ranch Creek Recovery has been designed to provide customized opioid addiction treatment plans, intimate settings, increased confidentiality, more time with your therapist, and the highest quality of accommodations. Our inpatient rehab team is able to provide increased patient care by treating only 6 clients at any given time, so we’re able to provide you with real individualized care and 24/7 support.

Non-12-Step Approach to Opiate Rehab

Ranch Creek Recovery offers an evidence-based holistic opioid rehab approach in California, which is non-12-step based. This means our opioid abuse treatment programming employs therapeutic modalities that are scientifically proven to work. The treatment programming will include in-depth psychological and psychiatric assessments, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy.

We also offer a number of transformative treatment elements, including:

  • Equine Therapy
  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Exercise
  • Amino Acid Therapy
  • Family therapy sessions

Using the non-12-step approach will provide more individualized opioid disorder treatment and focus on treating the underlying conditions of each patient. The treatment team will identify any core issues related to mental health, social, medical, familial, or other areas of a person’s life that need to be addressed and treated.

As an additional layer of support, we do encourage our patients to participate in support communities for their continued recovery, such as SMART Recovery or 12-step meetings that are recommended by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, but we leave the choice up to you.
