Frequently Asked Questions About Rehab

Here are some questions that we are frequently asked.  Please feel free to call us to get any clarification or ask any questions that you may have about Sunrise Recovery Ranch.

What is the average age of individuals at Sunrise Recovery Ranch?

We provide gender-specific treatment programs for adult men and women ages 18 and older.

What is the average length of stay at Sunrise Recovery Ranch?

Length of stay is determined by each individual person’s needs and progress in treatment. Each person, in collaboration with his or her treatment team, continually assesses progress and need for care. Most individuals remain in treatment for about 30 days, though this number may vary from person to person.

What types of care do you offer?

At Sunrise Recovery Ranch, we provide detoxification, residential care, partial hospitalization programming (PHP), and intensive outpatient programming (IOP). All of these levels of care include therapies and other activities that are designed to help our clients overcome substance abuse and manage co-occurring mental health disorders.

How does the admissions process work?

Our admissions process is designed to be simple and straightforward. Feel free to contact us any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to discuss receiving treatment. We are available for both phone calls and walk-ins. During an admissions call or meeting, a member of the intake team will gather information and conduct a pre-admission assessment. This assessment is designed to evaluate a potential client’s needs and determine whether a prospective client would benefit from the services we provide. That information will then be passed along to the clinical team to make a final decision about admissions.

Why should I choose a residential program?

Residential treatment offers the best opportunity for individuals to temporarily step away from the stresses and temptations of everyday life and live in a supportive environment.  In addition, clients are surrounded by an experienced treatment team and peers who are on a journey to the same destination. Residential treatment allows individuals to regroup, rebuild, and develop the skills that can enable them to attain lifelong sobriety.

What is a typical day like at Sunrise Recovery Ranch?

Days at SunriseRecovery Ranch begin early, giving clients a chance to take in the view, get ready for the day, and meditate. Days include a mix of groups, lectures, individual therapy, and activities broken up by breaks for meals. These groups include but are not limited to anger management, defense mechanisms, spirituality, nutrition, and wellness.
Every afternoon, clients can take part in designated exercise and recreational time and have a bit of free time to journal or continue their step work on their own. Twelve-step meetings take place every evening, and the weekends often include excursions to the movies, bowling, nature areas, or around the ranch grounds. After a chance to wind down, bedtime is at 10:30 p.m.

Do clients have to make beds, clean floors, and do other chores?

We prefer that clients are free to focus on recovery and building sober living skills. However, we do request that clients keep their rooms tidy and make sure to be responsible members of the therapeutic community.

Are family members involved in treatment?

All clients have the option to include family members in the treatment process if they wish. Family therapy sessions are available once per week and are led by marriage and family therapy trainees and interns.

Will I be able to talk to my loved ones while I am in treatment?

Absolutely. Support from family members and other loved ones is an important part of the treatment process.

Will I go through detox?

When an individual enters treatment with substances of abuse still in his or her system, detox gives him or her a safe place to complete the withdrawal process while under the attentive care of our medical team. Individuals who come to Sunrise with substances of abuse present in their bodies will complete detox prior to participating in the rest of treatment. Sunrise Recovery Ranch’s detox program is licensed in California and has been providing safe, effective detox services since 1986.

When does treatment start?

Our admissions team will work with you to find a start date that fits with your schedule.

Is what happens during treatment private?

All information that you provide during treatment is confidential and protected by state law. There are only two situations when we will share information you provide: when you sign a release allowing us to disclose specific pieces of information to facilitate your care, such as coordinating with a mental health practitioner in your community, or if we need to disclose information to protect you or someone else from immediate harm.

What happens after residential care is over?

Sunrise Recovery Ranch provides a full spectrum of aftercare treatment options. Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) and intensive outpatient program (IOP) are designed to gradually transition clients back into their everyday lives while maximizing their ability to build on the progress they have already made in treatment.

Thanks to Sunrise Recovery Ranch, my daughter was able to get the lasting recovery she deserved from her addiction and her co-occurring mental health disorder. I am super grateful!
