Spring Lake Ranch Therapeutic Community
1169 Spring Lake Road, Cuttingsville, Vermont, 05738
Spring Lake Ranch provides unique residential treatment options to address substance abuse issues and co-occurring mental health disorders. Spring Lake incorporates traditional therapies with work therapy, as residents are required to participate in all aspects of the upkeep of a working farm. Participation on the farm fosters a sense of community and contribution.
Creative Arts TherapyWriting, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.
Holistic TherapyFacilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
