Rules and Regulations
At Sober Souls Ranch, potential clients must have completed detox, prior to admittance. They are encouraged to work a program of recovery, which includes attendance at outpatient treatment, individual therapy, counseling or other mental health and wellness-related activities. Referrals for facilities that offer these services are provided for clients. Sober Souls Ranch is rooted in the 12 steps with the belief that those fellowships are a powerful healing tool.
Residents must attend a minimum of five weekly 12-step meetings, work with a sponsor and complete their steps. At Sober Souls Ranch, there are two mandatory 12-step on-site meetings, including a Tuesday night open 7:30 pm CA meeting, hosted in a large courtyard, which is set up like an auditorium complete with chairs, a podium and freestanding patio covers. House business meetings are also mandatory, and are considered part of the weekly meeting requirements.
Sober Souls Ranch practices a zero tolerance policy. Random drug and alcohol screening is conducted, and the facility immediately evicts any relapsed client. Other services provided by Sober Souls Ranch include job placement assistance. Younger clients are encouraged to pursue an academic education or attend vocational training. Los Angeles Pierce Community College is located in close proximity to the facility.
A spacious indoor gym allows clients ample opportunities for exercise.
Sober Souls Ranch is a member of the Sober Living Network, Los Angeles County Sober Living Coalition.
Former clients rave about Sober Souls Ranch, claiming that this 12-step-based facility really helps clients adjust to the ups and downs of real life. For those seeking more of a gender-specific scenario or more of a non-12-step approach, this might not be the right place. However, for men and women seeking a communal setup while working their steps, Sober Souls Ranch is a perfect match.
