Sunrise Ranch’s drug & alcohol addiction treatment is rooted in a science-based, research-supported clinical model to ensure a healthier, more satisfying life.
Our Highly Structured Schedule
Our drug treatment center in Southern CA is very successful in helping men overcome addiction and alcoholism. Here is a day in the life of our drug rehab.
Clients at Sunrise Ranch follow a highly structured daily schedule. The day begins at 6:30 a.m. when patients wake up in their spacious, sun-lit rooms on our six-bedroom ranch in the Riverside foothills. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served family style and prepared by our chef who specializes in a wide variety of world cuisines. Clients take advantage of our peaceful location with panoramic views of the mountains to the east and surrounding meadows to meditate in the morning.
Breakdown of Our Typical Day
Clients at Sunrise Ranch follow a highly structured daily routine. The day begins at 6:30 a.m. when the clients wake up in their spacious, sun-lit rooms on our 9-acre ranch in the Riverside foothills.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served “family style” and prepared by our chef who specializes in a wide variety of world cuisines. Clients take advantage of our peaceful location with panoramic views of the mountains to the east and surrounding meadows to meditate in the morning.
Led by a marriage and family therapist, this group helps clients work through their underlying feelings and issues by guiding them through our research-based recovery curriculum. Men and women learn about the disease of addiction, anger management, communication skills, relapse prevention, spirituality and other recovery-related topics.
Lectures are educational sessions about addiction and recovery led by our marriage and family therapist.
Step Process Group
This group guides patients through Steps 1 through 3 of the 12-Step program.
We encourage the women and men to rebuild their physical strength as part of their program of recovery and we set aside time each afternoon for exercise. Clients may swim in the pool or go work out at the local ‘state of the art’ gym on Monday through Thursdays. After working out or playing softball they return to the Ranch for a healthy dinner and then prepare to attend 12-step meetings. Fridays are set aside for softball and the weekends allow for rest and relaxation. On occasion, there are off-site activities like bowling, movies, batting cages, or hitting golf balls. In their free time, clients can journal or do “Step work” in their rooms.
At Sunrise Ranch, our patients attend a 12-Step meeting every evening, whether in the community or on the ranch. On weekends, the community gathers for a barbecue and trips to movies, bowling or nearby nature areas. At 10:30 p.m., the day comes to a close as patients rest up for another day of personal and spiritual exploration.
Patients identify the people, places, and things that trigger their cravings to use drugs or alcohol and formulate a plan for dealing with those triggers after they leave the ranch. Our staff helps set up therapy appointments, intensive outpatient treatment, and 12-Step involvement, depending on each patient’s individual needs.
Every evening, patients have free time to play softball, read, write letters or journal. The entire community also enjoys off-campus outings such as movies, bowling, the driving range or a hike up scenic Mount Rubidoux.
Big Book Study
Patients work through the “Big Book” of Alcoholics Anonymous with guidance and feedback from our counselors.
Patients use the information from lectures to complete handouts from our recovery book, with assistance and feedback from our team of counselors.
