I went to the ranch when it was called Bright Water Landing. I had an amazing experience. I attended in December or 2015 and I am still sober to this day. After my stay I was referred to a program in Colorado called Red Rock Recovery Center. Just want to add that no matter what place you go to there is always issues, but it is not about that, it is about willingness. Your recovery... your journey. You can go to the most expensive rehab that money can buy and if you are not ready you will not stay sober and sure won't be grateful. I have a lot of gratitude to the facilities that I have attended over the years and it just so happened that I was ready at this time. Sorry to hear that so many people had a bad experience here and I wish all of you luck in your sobriety!

One of the RAs their sad once they witnessed miracles , well so did I . Almost daily of my stay I witnessed complete strangers come together for a common goal .... finding our own path and accepting help . I am grateful for every person I met during the time I spent .. The folks at the Ranch in PA are AMAZING

Just finished my treatment there for mental health. I was blessed that my insurance covered me for 4 weeks. It’s the most amazing place. Everyone has their opinions depending on their hard work and efforts they put. But it’s not because of the the staff. The RA are people who care and help is always there.Therapists and doctors are are amazing. Especially therapist Dara. What an amazing woman. Then is the kitchen staff. Lorraine the chef she cares so much and she came to us to ask us what we think about the food and bring us samples of next meal. And then Ryan and Drew. My 2 favorite RA. They took us to adventure groups. I never thought I would jump off a 30 foot platform but I did it. That was amazing and it was a big deal for people like me who never took a chance to get out of bed let alone going on adventures. So please don’t let all those bad reviews scare you. If you are looking for help I tell you that is the place to go. You need to work hard but on the end you will be the one to tell the difference. 🌺

Before I start, I would just like to put some disclaimers out: -I can only speak for the mental health part of the recovery, not substance abuse -I was in the women’s community, therefore I do not know how it differs from the men’s -This was the first residential treatment center I’ve been to My time during the Ranch, PA was in February 2018. I don’t know if the staff is still the same, but I will mostly be speaking of my own experience there, so please don’t take my word as concrete things that must happen. I didn’t really have too many expectations coming here because I’d never been to a residential program before. I’d read all of the reviews online and they never really gave me a comprehensive view of what it would be like in the facility. Also, I had to keep in mind that people never really write reviews (in general) if they were satisfied with their care, people usually only write reviews when they have a bad experience. Everyone comes to the Ranch at their worst. The one thing I had to do, because I had nothing else, was that I had to have faith. I never really understood what faith meant, until I literally described it: I didn’t have any precedent indications to trust that these people will help me get better, but I still went along with it, letting them guide me while I’m blindfolded. So all I could do was have faith that I would get better. And some people have told me that I have! It’s like getting a tan, you never really know that your skin color has changed until someone who hasn’t seen you in a while tells you. A big part that they emphasize a ton is the community. It really depends on the people. One week I had a great time, the next… Well the staff tried their best. And I understand that I can’t control people! So even though there are times where the community might have some petty drama, I reminded myself that I am here for me, no one else. And I think that was a good mindset to keep when external problems caused by people came my way. But please don’t let me guide you into thinking that the women’s community was bad! It was amazing! Everyone was so supportive. And that’s just the clients, the staff are wonderful as well! Just a warning in advance: There’s a five-day “blackout,” meaning you don’t get to call or send letters to anyone outside of the facility for five days. After that, calls are usually Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and weekends (if I remember correctly). Family and friends can also visit on Saturdays or Sundays, with consent from the therapist you are given there. Mail letters any time. It’s just those first five days, so be patient. Onto the activities themselves: I went to multiple groups a day (CBT, DBT, etc.) but I got breaks in between so it’s not too tiring. I was provided with so much, such as food and a laundry service, so that I only have to focus on myself, not other life factors. Also, on a side note, the food is really. Really. Good. There’s also this activity called “The Maze” and while it may have not been as impactful to me, there are so many others who say it’s life changing. Every activity is optional, so it’s okay if one can’t emotionally or physically participate, but... Don’t skip Maze Day. I think the one rule that everyone thinks is ridiculous is the division between men and women. There’s no “fraternizing,” as they say. Basically, I couldn’t really talk to the men since I was in the women’s group and vice versa. It’s a bit silly, but that division is important for some people, such as those who were traumatized by the other gender. Overall, my time there was pretty good. It didn’t really “fix” me, but I’m functional again. And I think that was the goal there. I got aftercare once I got out, just like everyone else. If I could give any advice, it would be to do everything! Try everything! So that you don’t have any regrets there. TL;DR: Good place based on my experience because I was open to the process.

Was only there 2 days because of insurance reasons. But, what I experienced was a great place with good people and great counselors and program. I would recommend the Ranch to anyone who is serious about recovery and long term sobriety. I am now in there IOP program. Good luck to you.

Excellent staff. Wonderful nurses. There is structure where it is needed and prepares you for aftercare and how to continue with sobriety. Highly recommended.

It's been almost a year since I was at the lovely "Bridgewater" Landing and it changed my life. I have nothing to compare it to, this has been my only experience at a rehab... but everyone from nurses, the clinical staff and the administration became more than advocates, they became friends. The facility was going through some growing pains while I was there, but that just made the experience that much more interesting. I traveled over 10 hours to come here for the main purpose of their Buddhist approach, which was there but limited and the dual-diagnosis ability to treat my cacophony of mental woes. I will say pack for all seasons, you never know what season it decides to be there and the winds are fierce up on the hill. The up side, pun intended, is that the vistas are grand, the stars are bright and the wildlife is amazing. Again, I have to thank everyone that works there for helping me through a very rough time and all the very strong men and women that fought with me to not be yet another statistic. This place really is a miracle, if you choose to make it yours and help out your brothers and sisters around you. Thanks Bridgewater...
