Why Residential Treatment

When confronted with the residential question, families naturally struggle with feelings of guilt or abandonment, as well as doubts about being away from a loved one. Meanwhile, prospective Spring Lake Ranch residents may fear the stigma of inpatient or long-term mental health treatment in a residential facility.

But residential treatment can be wonderful for families who have fought a difficult battle with mental illness and addiction. Families can rest easy knowing that their loved one is in a safe and caring environment, getting the treatment they need. And the resident, far from being marginalized as a patient or case, benefits from the change of pace, time to focus on wellness goals, inclusion in a community of professional staff and empathetic peers, and round-the-clock response to keep situations and crises managed.

Long-Term Goals

Though the Ranch campus in Cuttingsville might be termed a “long-term residential mental health facility,” an exploratory visit will show that Spring Lake Ranch is a place apart, in a beautiful, natural environment far removed from the typical inpatient facility. And though what we provide may be deemed “long-term care,” it can be the most useful, purposeful time in a resident’s life.

Meeting the challenge of a life-changing mental health diagnosis is the most important project a person with mental illness or dual diagnosis can undertake. Time and again, our residents and their families find that an intensive stay in an alternative residential treatment program like Spring Lake Ranch can best situate them to meet their long-term goals.

Though not a formal diagnosis, Failure to Launch Syndrome can have a major impact on young adults and their families. Spring Lake Ranch is an intensive, farm-based residential treatment program that can help young adults take control of their lives and their futures through the power of work and community.

Each year, Spring Lake Ranch welcomes dozens of adults who struggle with mental health and often, co-occurring addiction issues. Residents at the Ranch live and work within a nurturing, nourishing, sober living community.
