Green Oak Ranch operates two programs that run simultaneously on different areas of our property. We have a retreat and event center used by churches, community groups, businesses and families. We also operate the Green Oak Ranch residential recovery program for men and women. These programs are complementary aspects of our organizational ministry and support one another.
It is one of the most remarkable aspects of Green Oak Ranch that we are “steps away” but “a world apart!” Pull through the gate and you will literally forget that you are in town. The experience is truly like being in a remote mountain retreat; peaceful, serene. Some even comment that it’s like going back in time – a slice of the old west!
All program residents live in dorm-style cabins. Separate areas and lodging are provided for men and women. Hearty, healthy meals are provided buffet style in our dining hall. Accommodations are comfortable in our retreat setting.
Nine months from now is going to be here, regardless of whether you commit to a recovery program or not. The question is, what will your life look like nine months from now? Will you be on the road to a whole, healthy life that isn’t ruled by drugs or alcohol. Will you be restoring your relationships, employment and other connections? It likely took a lot longer than nine months to get to this point. In the experience of our successful program graduates it takes time and space to work through the complex issues that contribute to addiction, and to allow God to work in your life. Nine months is just the beginning, but it is the time you need.
Green Oak Ranch kitchen is 100% ‘peanut free’ and ‘peanut oil free’. In addition, our kitchen staff will accommodate dietary restrictions, food allergy and food preference needs, whenever possible or reasonable.
The camp provides basic first aid but no medical staff. Residents may leave the facility for doctor appointments or medical needs, by arrangement.
Following their 60-day probationary period, residents are allowed passes to leave the property for short periods during their unscheduled time. Visitors are also allowed with some restrictions. More details are provided to the residents upon admission. Residents agree to be 100% drug/alcohol free during their time on the ranch and agree to submit to testing at any time. Drug or alcohol use is grounds for dismissal from the program.
Green Oak Ranch does not have an on-site camp store however we are just minutes from grocery stores and other retail. After the initial 60-day probation period, residents may leave the property to purchase items they need.
If you like your admission review meeting can be held onsite and we can provide a basic tour of the facility, with respect to the program and privacy of the current residents.
The residents in our program have had success overcoming dependency/addiction to a variety of substances including alcohol, opiates, cocaine/crack, prescription drugs, and marijuana. Residents have also learned to overcome sexual and gambling addictions. All residents come to Green Oak post-detox. Residents agree to be tested for drugs alcohol at any time. Substance use any kind is grounds for release from the program.
We have a partnership with local detox centers and will help you make arrangements to stay there before your admission to Green Oak Ranch.
