The Liberty Ranch for Women: Catering to The Unique Needs of Women

Besides the obvious biological differences there are also social and environmental factors, which influence the reasons that women use drugs and alcohol and conversely why they also seek treatment. The Liberty Ranch’s women specific program focuses on the unique needs of women that can be hindered in co-ed facilities.

Specialized treatment for women at the Liberty Ranch includes:

  • Pregnancy
  • Self esteem
  • Co-dependency/ we teach women to become independent, to stand on their own two feet
  • Recovery Dynamics (30/60/90 day programs)

Other factors unique to women that can influence the treatment process include issues around pregnancy and child-care, financial independence, and how they come into treatment (as women are more likely to seek the assistance of a general or mental health practitioner).

Women who struggle with addiction with their diseases in very different ways than men do. It’s more difficult for women in recovery because they face numerous obstacles to successful treatment that men don’t have to deal with. Because we focus on the treatment and recovery of women only, our recovery rate is extremely high.

Friendships that Last a Lifetime

One of the main reasons The Ranch is successful in treating alcoholics/addicts is because of the highly structured program. The house creates an environment where the residents are able to develop a sober support system based on an honest desire to help another alcoholic with true feelings of love and respect for each other. Through the structure and rules of the house the residents are empowered to change the behavior that has contributed to drug and alcohol abuse.

“We can be ourselves. There is a sisterhood here like I have never experienced before.”

Quite simply, the Ranch is a place for women to escape common social and family pressure, and instead focus on sobriety. “We don’t have to worry about our appearances. Chrystal H. a resident at the house says, “We can be ourselves. There is a sisterhood here like I have never experienced before.” At the Liberty Ranch we focus on important issues such as behavior, sobriety, and changing lives.

We have seen alcoholics/addicts do well in our structure and want to be here, but because some family members were unwilling to let go of control or take a look at their own behavior, they would pull they the resident out of the house and put them someplace else. Many of those parents realized their mistakes after their kid got loaded and brought their child back to us vowing never again to get in the way again.”

Why our Women’s Recovery Center is Successful

Often, chemically dependent women try to disguise addictions by assuming a socially acceptable appearance, career, or community involvement. The Liberty Ranch for women provides a safe place for women only; one in which they can feel more comfortable being themselves and more open to reveal what lies behind the masks they wear and begin to resolve their feelings of guilt and shame. For example, women addicts who are also caring mothers carry immense guilt and shame not only for their disease, but also for the effect their diseases have on their children’s lives. Our structured program helps women in recovery learn to move beyond the social stigmas and labels to openly face their feelings and take responsibility for their actions.

By treating only women, we create an environment in which residents can develop friendships and sober support groups, with a focus on cooperation rather than competition. Seeing other women succeed in sobriety can be a great motivator to the newcomer.

The Liberty Ranch for Women is a drug abuse and alcohol recovery home in the Grove Ridge Community off of Highway 501 in Kings Mountain, Kentucky. While residing in drug rehab and alcohol addiction centers, individuals learn about the disease of alcoholism and drug addiction and how their lives have been impacted as well as those around them. After discharging to a recovery home, residents begin to learn how to apply the principles of a 12-step program in their lives. Participation in 12-step meetings and sponsorship is mandatory and necessary. Attendance at 12 step meetings is mandatory for residency as well as attendance at other meetings and functions provided by the facility.
