    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
  • Individual Therapy

    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

Rehabs 360 Guide


From a 72-acre ranch in rural central Oklahoma, 30 miles south of Oklahoma City, Rob's Ranch offers Christian residential treatment for men seeking treatment for substance abuse. The treatment process is heavily influenced by religious doctrine and includes religious practices in treatment. The faith-building components of treatment are considered optional, although the facility encourages participation. Detox is not available


The program lasts 90 days, making it one of the 39 (20.4 percent) of long-term treatment facilities in the state. The treatment process is strongly based on the 12-Steps and the principle that recovery depends on establishing a personal relationship with God. It is one of the 107 (56 percent) of men-only treatment programs in Oklahoma.

In addition to 12-step programming, residents have a weekly individual counseling session, which also appears to focus on the 12-Steps. The program also offers daily morning chapel services, a morning lecture about substance abuse, and 12-Step lectures six days per week, which sometimes include films and discussions. Two or three nights per week, there's a post-dinner Bible study session.

The final but perhaps largest component of treatment is daily group sessions, in large and small groups mediated and sometimes led by staff. These discussions are designed to give clients a sense of community.

For families, there's a curriculum and a therapeutic weekend, which should be completed within the first 45 days of treatment. Counselors also involve families in treatment throughout each individual's stay.

During their stay, clients work on the ranch. This includes daily ranch duties as well as basic maintenance tasks. It is designed to teach clients the importance of work ethic. Only 63 (33 percent) of facilities in Oklahoma include work training in the treatment process.


The treatment staff is composed of licensed and certified addiction counselors, and all staff are in long-term recovery. In fact, some of them are graduates of Rob's Ranch. There's also a full-time pastor on staff. The single individual polled by Rehabs.com to date on the staff's level of training and experience gave it five out of five stars.


Rob's Ranch is a sprawling property with a chapel on-site, as well as accommodations and treatment buildings built in 2006. There's a cozy communal room with a flat-screen TV, a fitness center, a rec room, and semi-private rooms for residents. Smoking is permitted in designated areas, but residents may not have any personal electronic devices. On Sundays, transportation is provided to local church services, for those clients who wish to attend. Families are welcome to visit all day on Saturdays and Sundays, and a family-style lunch is served on both days.

However, they also gave the center just one star for its family participation, and cited "visiting hours" as a weakness, indicating that involvement of loved ones was lacking.
