I’ve been through rehab after rehab and never have I been so genuinely cared about and loved as I have been here by all the people at Touchstone Ranch Recovery Center. I came in here totally broken, with such a void and sense of hopelessness I didn’t even recognize myself any more! I found hope here! Through the help of staff and fellow addicts like myself I was able to find recovery; and know there’s a huge difference between being sober and being in recovery! Recovery is what you find here at Touchstone Ranch Recovery Center. I am leaving here full of hope, happiness, and a sense of self I haven’t had in over 10 years! I can honestly say not only did Touchstone Ranch save my life but they showed me how to finally live and not just exist, and for that I will be eternally grateful. I can only say Touchstone Ranch Recovery Center is truly a blessed place. The minute you pull through the gates you feel a sense of acceptance and security you will not get anywhere else.” “Love is freedom, freedom is love and you will find that freedom here… I know I did! -Michele
Touchstone Ranch Recovery Center is not just about alcohol and drug addiction it is about the people here, who are willing to help others find a new way to recreate their lives sober one day at a time. You can find the serenity, peace and personal freedom you’ve always wanted! The horses, cows, goats, donkeys, puppies, and blue sky are the biggest plus here besides the smiles. -Michelle
