Faith-Based Drug Treatment On a Ranch
We are not like other drug rehabs or sober living programs. Beartooth Men’s Rehab is a unique experience built around connecting young men back to nature and instilling in them the values of Christianity and the American West. We believe true healing must be a three-pronged approach that helps heal men physically, mentally, and spiritually. We utilize several methods to help men improve their bodies, minds, and spirits to accomplish this. Through daily activities, such as Morning Prayer, Scripture readings, Christian virtue lessons, and work on the ranch, we help men pursue excellence, practice self-discipline, develop honesty, and accept accountability.
Our natural setting is also an ideal environment to establish peace, calm, and understanding about these men’s responsibility to themselves. Set against the beautiful mountains of Wyoming, he can see the effects of God’s creation all around him. On our working cattle ranch, men will have the chance to experience equine therapy and recovery from all types of substance abuse addiction in a unique and empowering way. Many men experience lifetime firsts that can help them focus on why they are truly here. It’s a chance to visualize themselves as the future men they’d like to be.
Work It Out Therapies
Through bonding, overcoming frustrations, and “getting back on the horse” when they inevitably fall off, our students learn how to build lifelong relationships that involve clear communication, patience, and understanding.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:
The therapist and mentors in our program use cognitive behavioral therapy to help each addict realize the negative thoughts that lead to their dangerous behaviors.
Young men experience the natural consequences of choices and behavior while working on the ranch with others. Experiential: Through our nature and relationship-based forms of therapy, they’re encouraged to express themselves, identify their triggers, and gain a greater understanding of who they are.
Residents participate in relationship counseling, how to heal, how to communicate better, and a once-a-month family counseling phone call with residents & family members, led by our Director, Thomas George.
Life-Change on the Range Activities
June 30-October 15: Beartooth Men’s Rehab residents participate in Old Cowboy Life, Cow Camp, and a historic Cattle Drive down Beartooth Mountain after a summer of feeding and growing the herd on range lands.
