Riverwalk Ranch Philosophy
Recovery is an individual journey and it begins with the person that decides to come to our healing ranch. Each person comes with a unique chemical, biological, and psychological makeup, as well as unique experiences, stressors, and trauma that all play a part in their addiction and recovery. In addition, each person comes with their own idea of what they would like their recovery to look like. There are many evidenced based models and supports that can be used to achieve long-term recovery.
Areas of Specialization
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Eating Disorder Treatment
Many mental health professionals view eating disorders (including anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder, along with other dysfunctional eating patterns) as a food addiction – in that food is used in ways other than as fuel or a source of pleasure. Some, but not all, addiction treatment programs include eating disorder treatment as part of the service menu. Also, an eating disorder may be a dual-diagnosis or a co-occurring disorder with drug or alcohol addiction.
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
Creative Arts Therapy
Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)
Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

ABOUT RIVERWALK RANCH
Located in Mansfield, Texas, part of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Riverwalk Ranch offers a full continuum of treatment for individuals struggling with substance abuse. The facility provides residential, outpatient, and partial hospitalization treatment. It is also one of only 36 residential facilities in Texas to offer medical detox on site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The detoxification process takes place in a safe, home-like environment where patients have 24-hour access to nursing care and an on-site physician.
Clients in the residential program are divided into smaller groups to better individualize treatment. These groups are divided up based on age, substance abuse history, and other factors such as co-occurring mental health disorders. Treatment includes daily group, individual, and recreational therapies as well as social events and other activities. Riverwalk offers Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), Traumatic, Incident Reduction Therapy (TIR), relapse prevention, medication management, reality and solution-based therapy, psycho-education, EMDR, neurofeedback/biofeedback and is part of the 44.1 percent of Texas facilities to offer Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
The intensive outpatient program (IOP) is designed to help individuals step down from residential treatment. Three to five days of the week patients in IOP take part in CBT, pharmacological therapy, family therapy, and life coaching. In addition, optional 12-step groups are encouraged, though not mandatory.
A more involved level of care, partial hospitalization (PHP) offers on site housing and 24-hour access to staff. Although it varies by patient, most individuals in partial hospitalization programs participate in treatment five days per week.
Nursing staff is accessible 24/7, as is an on-site physician. Otherwise, no information is provided on the facility's website regarding the staff's credentials. It is part of the 27.6 percent of Texas facilities that are accredited by the Joint Commission.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The facility is located on a picturesque ranch that occupies 27 acres of rural land outside of Fort Worth. On site amenities include a meditation garden, gym, two fishing ponds, walking trails, a pool, a basketball court, a recreational game room, and a movie theater
