I went to Sundown Ranch on Oct 8, 2018. It was a very positive and Spiritual experience. Most of the staff were amazing and the Administrators was especially kind and compassionate when my bi-polar mania kicked in. Sundown is not a dual-treatment facility so it was problematic. There was one upper management who was very controlling and condescending that I left after only 8 days. I was not court ordered, so they could not stop me. Fortunately I have stayed sober, but I was especially fragile during those first days, and she was very cruel. My counselor was having personal issues, so our group was left to run itself after the first 5 days. That too was catastrophic. We were all lost, and one girl decided that she was in charge, being manic at the time didn't help, because I wasn't going to take any crap from anyone. This girl was your classic bully. I stood up to her, and she didn't like it. It was not the kind of therapy that one would expect in a treatment center. Aside from those situations, I would have given MC Ranch 5 stars. Sometimes you just have too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. But hey, I am still sober, and kudos to the athletic Director... You were my saving grace when I couldn't hardly sleep (mania). You are so professional , so respectful, and so COOL!!!! I will NEVER ever forget you. I do wish that the Ranch allowed you to mingle with former residents. I would love to have you come and chill at our house on the Ocean... ugh!
