Getting Out of The Woods.

We'll give it to you straight: the inpatient program at the Ranch is often just the first step towards recovery. The work will continue—along with family and friends—to start building the next chapter in your life. When we started graduating residents, we found existing aftercare options fell short. There was no aftercare facility that offered the kind of first-responder-centered recovery community that made the Ranch so successful. So what did we do? We built our own.

The First Responders First Intensive Outpatient Program in East L.A. is an extension of the Ranch, delivering all the things that make the Ranch great—but a lot closer to home. The IOP offers daily programming to aid the transition out of residential treatment, and amenities to encourage a sense of community and just give you somewhere to recharge. Additionally, the IOP expands our treatment offerings to outpatient treatment as well as our traditional inpatient program.

The Ranch aids recovery by offering structure... and then you're back in the world.

Theme of The Day is just one way to bring structure back.
