Ridgeview Ranch Treatment Center

741 W. Woodbury Rd, Altadena, California, 91001
Ridgeview Ranch believes that addiction touches every aspect of a person’s life and therefore effective drug and alcohol rehab treatment must address the Whole Person. Whole Person treatment is Mental, Emotional, Physical, and Spiritual. At Ridgeview Ranch, we have combined a wide array of activities and therapies that have proven to promote healthy living by decreasing stress and improving physical conditioning in addition to practices that quiet the mind for deep personal reflection. We believe we offer strategies that help our clients find “balance”. We are pleased to offer these activities as a regular part of the weekly program for our clients. We are able to create “individual” sessions tailored to address specific issues and needs as they arise from the rehab treatment experience. Our Holistic Therapy Practitioners are either Certified and/or Licensed and come to us with many years of experience.

Hi had a severe meth and alcohol addiction and relapsed many times over the years. I finally found Ridgeview Ranch Treatment Center and gave it a shot. I loved the facility. It is on the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. THey have a pool and a jacuzzi so I used both to relieve some stress and anxiety I had. The staff were very caring and Dr. provided EMDR THerapy which really helped with my PTSD issues which I suffered from a traumatic event in the military. They accept my TriWest Care VA insurance which was convenient and I didnt have to be in a VA hospital. I am now 3 months sober and back to work. I have to credit the excellent staff.

I just completed Detox and Residential treatment at Ridgeview and I am so grateful. I initially tried detoxing in a hospital setting and I was very uncomfortable. Ridgeview offers medical support and Dr. is amazing. I made it through and I am continuing with their IOP program. I highly recommend .

My friend was heavily addicted to painkillers which he started using after an injury. He was in a bad place and asked me to help him. Luckily, I found Ridgeview Ranch. They provided a customized treatment program and supported him through the entire process. He is now 1year sober and is still involved in the after treatment program. THis place changed his life. I highly recommend.

This is a very small facility which allows for a small, intimate setting. Their website shows a lot of horses, but very little equine therapy is incorporated. The food is excellent. Overall, a very nice facility with good staff.
