Yes. We work with most all major insurance companies. We also have dedicated staff that works to maximize your benefits. Many treatment centers will not provide these services and leave the difficult task of dealing with the insurance companies up to the patient and family.
How long are your programs?
Treatment length is based on the individual need of the patient. Many patients will stay for longer periods of time, especially youth. Please call for further information on length of stay.
What are your success rates?
Sundown measures many aspects of the treatment process and success. We conduct multiple internal surveys and use external partners to examine our practices. Sundown is also participating in a national outcomes project to help us benchmark with other providers.
Sundown M Ranch outcomes have historically shown our programs to be effective and efficient with high levels of customer satisfaction being reported by our patients.
How is the family involved?
Sundown M Ranch provides a 3 day family program. Family members stay on campus in our family annex and have a schedule that is specific to the family program. This is a very important part of the treatment process and highly recommended for all patients that come to treatment.
We are a dual capable facility. Meaning that we are able to provide treatment for most patients with co-occurring mental health issues. The appropriateness of our program will be assessed by an admissions specialist.
Is my privacy protected?

Each staff member is dedicated to upholding these standards in all communications and records. Staff, patients, family members, and visitors all sign a confidentiality statement and agree to keep all knowledge or information of Sundown M Ranch staff, patients, and family members confidential at all times.

For nearly thirty-five years since its founding in 1978, the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP), which represents nearly 275 not-for-profit and for-profit providers (free standing and hospital based programs, which offer a full continuum of care from outpatient, partial hospitalization and inpatient rehabilitation regimes), has acted as the voice of private alcoholism and drug dependency treatment programs throughout the U.S. That voice has been heard time and time again – in Congress, in the insurance industry, in the utilization review arena and in the chemical dependency treatment field itself.
