Definately a good place. Use what you can, if something dosnt make sense, don't worry about it!
I’m so grateful for SMR! My life has completely changed, since my 21 day stay here. Special thanks to J. Hickman, and Sarah!
I enjoyed my experience at SMR. The facility was amazing, food TOO good, and staff very friendly. I had a councilor who was prone to criticism and negative motivation, I'm not a councilor so I'm not sure if that's the best approach or not, but it motivated me. I suppose it depends on the individual. I was determined to proove her wrong ... which I have. I will say, I don't believe ANY treatment facility is going to cure anyone of their addictions. It is a solid first step, of many, on a long road to recovery. I attribute my success in sobriety to me, my family and AA. I attribute my ability to actually stop drinking and my increased knowledge of addiction to SMR. I never would have quit drinking without SMR, I never would have stayed sober without AA. Thank you SMR.
I'd definitely recommend Sundown M Ranch for anyone suffering from chemical dependency, who is able to go. The approach, curriculum and overall program is similar to many in-patient treatment programs from my experience. I'm guessing the standard curriculum and format doesn't change too much from center to center in the state . Where Sundown excels however is with their family program, as well as their physical facilities. The family and codependent/affected are very significant aspects of anyone's addiction, and Sundown places the most emphasis on repairing these dynamics that I've seen. They provide a standard 3-day program for family members to come stay on the campus while they're given a rare chance to start working on themselves and a healthier relationship. The facilities themselves are another reason it's so easy to appreciate Sundown. Located in sunny, beautiful Yakima in a flat valley, near rustic train tracks and a river you can constantly hear, the picturesque scene is very healing in it of itself. Grounds are well kept by full time garden pros and cleaning staff, and the facilities feel clean!. I've only seen one incident of someone having drugs in here, which was taken are of. Unfortunately, it's not very uncommon at all to find drugs in a treatment facility. But I noticed it does happen a lot less in places like this, where patients are there voluntarily. Even if one were to come across drugs, I believe they would be better suited to handle the situation here. This is a safe place. One thing I would suggest improving would be access to actual 12-step meetings while there, or education regarding basic 12-step school of thought and etiquette? I understand that we must be mindful of traditions, and that it is impossible to to "teach" AA in any short amount of time. But I do believe it's important that people learn what AA, NA, CA etc. are actually about during this crucial phase of recovery, before they get comfortable, and decide to be contempt prior to investigation, or make decisions based on misinformation or simple lack of information, which happens too often. Some of the staff, esp the house managers, seem like they could be under qualified for what the patients seem to think they're there for, but this seems only to be a simple misunderstanding. Overall the staff here seem like authentic people.
Despite what you might hear about the youth facility, It saved my life. I think the counselors were brilliant and really got through to me, and I'm still sober to this day and accomplishing things that the couch-potato me never thought I could ever do. Thank you, Sundown M Ranch!
My son attended the 21 day treatment and all was great for a week after he came home. 21 days isn't long enough! Sadly we are back to square 1!
I "graduated" in 1981 when the facility was in White Swan. I have been sober ever since. I would say that my experience there is, you get back what you put in. I left a lot of baggage there. There is no guarantee about life outside because it is up to you. The place was amazing. I have to laugh at the impressions my group mates had when I first drove in. It was not complimentary. Then we all laughed at how we changed in there. My last week there was very fulfilling.
So incredibly grateful for Sundown and all they do for so many. They saved my mama's life and I could never thank them enough.
SMR is a great facility to get your mind right. Expect to put work in if you want to recover. Food and facilities are above average. Laundry done for you once a week, room cleaned daily. Counseling is beauracratic so groups run themselves. It works for the addict. Best bang for your buck.
Sundown M Ranch saved my life. It was very intense and very uncomfortable, but that's what makes it so great. They give you a safe place to unleash all of the horrible stuff you've been dealing with, and they help you through it. If it wasn't for Sundown, I don't know where I would be right now. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone!
I got my life back when I walked through the doors of Sundown Ranch 4 years ago. It was the most amazing experience of my life. Thank you Sundown!!
