Rob's Ranch Philosophy

At Rob’s Ranch, men struggling with addiction are provided residential substance abuse treatment that empowers chemically-dependent men to achieve enduring recovery. Through 12-Step services, one-on-one counseling, group discussion, and educational coursework, residents at Rob’s Ranch address the roots of addiction and develop strategies for lifelong sobriety. Individual counseling is provided to enable residents to explore the origins of their addictions and enhance self-awareness.

Areas of Specialization

  • Client & Family Support Groups
    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

  • Individual Therapy
    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.

Review by Contributors


From a 72-acre ranch in rural central Oklahoma, 30 miles south of Oklahoma City, Rob's Ranch offers Christian residential treatment for men seeking treatment for substance abuse. The treatment process is heavily influenced by religious doctrine and includes religious practices in treatment. The faith-building components of treatment are considered optional, although the facility encourages participation. Detox is not available


The program lasts 90 days, making it one of the 39 (20.4 percent) of long-term treatment facilities in the state. The treatment process is strongly based on the 12-Steps and the principle that recovery depends on establishing a personal relationship with God. It is one of the 107 (56 percent) of men-only treatment programs in Oklahoma.

In addition to 12-step programming, residents have a weekly individual counseling session, which also appears to focus on the 12-Steps. The program also offers daily morning chapel services, a morning lecture about substance abuse, and 12-Step lectures six days per week, which sometimes include films and discussions. Two or three nights per week, there's a post-dinner Bible study session.

The final but perhaps largest component of treatment is daily group sessions, in large and small groups mediated and sometimes led by staff. These discussions are designed to give clients a sense of community.

For families, there's a curriculum and a therapeutic weekend, which should be completed within the first 45 days of treatment. Counselors also involve families in treatment throughout each individual's stay.

During their stay, clients work on the ranch. This includes daily ranch duties as well as basic maintenance tasks. It is designed to teach clients the importance of work ethic. Only 63 (33 percent) of facilities in Oklahoma include work training in the treatment process.


The treatment staff is composed of licensed and certified addiction counselors, and all staff are in long-term recovery. In fact, some of them are graduates of Rob's Ranch. There's also a full-time pastor on staff. The single individual polled by to date on the staff's level of training and experience gave it five out of five stars.


Rob's Ranch is a sprawling property with a chapel on-site, as well as accommodations and treatment buildings built in 2006. There's a cozy communal room with a flat-screen TV, a fitness center, a rec room, and semi-private rooms for residents. Smoking is permitted in designated areas, but residents may not have any personal electronic devices. On Sundays, transportation is provided to local church services, for those clients who wish to attend. Families are welcome to visit all day on Saturdays and Sundays, and a family-style lunch is served on both days.


At the time of this writing, has received four positive reviews and one negative review about Rob’s Ranch. Although one alum wrote how they “Can’t imagine anyplace worse,” alumni generally approved of the staff and the faith-based focus. "Best counselors, best amenities, and an unmatched spirituality focus," wrote Jason, who went through the program and now works at the facility. "The staff understood what I was going through because they themselves had been through Rob's Ranch as clients," Jake wrote.

At the time of this writing, secondary sites yielded mostly positive feedback: On Google, Rob’s Range had an average rating of 4.7 out of five stars from 27 reviews to date.[1] Nearly all of the feedback addressed the program’s effectiveness, the “Best counselors and staff,” and the “tools to stay clean.”

On its Facebook page, which it can manage, Rob’s Ranch has an average rating of 4.9 out of five stars from 118 reviews.[2] Alumni indicated that the program’s faith-based approach and staff helped them to get to recovery.


The single review submitted to to date about Rob’s Ranch from a loved one was mostly positive. "Very relaxed, strong faith-based," the anonymous reviewer wrote, giving the facility five out of five stars for staff experience, its counseling options, and its treatment for co-occurring disorders. However, they also gave the center just one star for its family participation, and cited "visiting hours" as a weakness, indicating that involvement of loved ones was lacking. They also noted that an extra 30 days of treatment would be beneficial.


There is currently no information provided on the facility's website regarding its costs. However, the single individual polled by to date on the center's affordability gave it two out of five stars.

The counselors are awesome but you only meet with them one on one once a week. There's no riding the horses despite pictures of them all over the website. Themotives for a lot of. People in there are not to get sober, but to look good for up coming legal issues their facing. The staff tries to keep it under control

Rob\'s Ranch is undoubtedly the best treatment center in Oklahoma. Best counselors, best amenities, and an unmatched spirituality focus. I came to treatment at Rob\'s Ranch in 2012 as a broken, tormented, angry, and immature man and 3 months later I left with a brand new outlook on life. Rob\'s Ranch gave my family their son, brother, grandson, and uncle back. I was also able to restore my relationship with God that I had neglected throughout the years of my active addiction.

Both my brother and I attended Rob's Ranch at separate times. It was the best decision I have made in my life. We are both nearly 2 years sober now. The staff understood what I was going through because they themselves had been through Rob's Ranch as clients. They actually cared about how I was doing from one day to the next. It felt safe. It felt like home and not a rehab.
