ABOUT AWAKENING RANCH (RESCUE MISSION MINISTRY)- ADELANTO, CA

Awakening Ranch (Rescue Mission Ministry), located in Adelanto, Calif., is described on the facility’s Facebook page as a non-profit rescue mission ministry.[1] The facility offers housing for homeless individuals, food and clothing for those in need, and a rehabilitation program for individuals struggling with substance abuse. Awakening Ranch is a Christian faith-based, residential program. In California, the ranch is among the 37.4 percent of facilities to provide a residential, non-hospital program.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

There is currently no detailed information provided by the facility regarding its treatment program. The director of the facility describes himself as a former addict and states on the facility’s Facebook page that he uses his experiences to help others who are dealing with addiction. The director states that the facility offers physical, emotional, and spiritual growth for participants of the program. To promote this growth, clients may participate in counseling sessions and educational classes that address various topics of addiction.

The director also states on the facility’s Facebook page that the rehabilitation program offered at the facility has helped him to become a “productive citizen, a better son, father, uncle, and friend.” Christianity appears to be the basis of the treatment program. As such, program participants may attend worship services, receive spiritual counseling, and participate in Bible studies.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The facility director/co-founder describes himself as a former addict who uses his life experiences to help others going through similar circumstances that he was once in. The one alum who resided at the facility nine years ago indicated that the facility staff were not experienced nor well-trained.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its living arrangements and related offerings. It appears residents of the facility participate in building sheds that are sold to help fund the organization. One alum gave the facility three out of five stars for accommodations and amenities and meals and nutrition.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

At the time of this writing, a single alum has been polled by Rehabs.com. The alum indicated that he participated in treatment at the facility nine years ago. He gave the facility four out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, three stars for counseling options and the amount of family participation, and five stars for the incorporation of faith-based programming.

The alum wrote that a strength of the facility was, “Faith...miles and miles from civilization it was easy to disconnect from the world and focus on myself.” He felt that a weakness of the facility was, a lack of structure, writing “fellow addicts were put in charge and the bathroom facility was an out house and one house bathroom” although he noted that some time has passed since his stay.

On the facility’s Facebook page, which it may have the ability to manage, 13 reviewers gave the facility perfect five out of five star ratings. "Awakening Ranch is an oasis in the desert where we could go for healing" wrote Victor, a representative reviewer.

FINANCING

There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its costs. However, one alum who participated in the facility’s program nine years ago indicated that there was no cost associated with the program, placing Awakening Ranch among the five percent of California facilities that offers treatment at no cost.

Faith...miles and miles from civilization it was easy to disconnect from the world and focus on myself. No structure...fellow addicts were put in charge and the bathroom facility was an out house and one house bathroom but this was 9 yes ago and I hear things have changed since then. I enjoyed the farm animals. I was in charge of and the dog training stuff we did..it was free to stay there and they want you to stay a year..I did and I'm still clean with no want for drugs but it wasn't the facility it was the change I wanted they provided the means to an end but it was me who did it
