The youth addiction treatment program at Sundown M Ranch utilizes a multi-disciplinary team of certified counselors and medical professionals.

Sundown M Ranch is fully committed to providing youth addiction treatment of the highest quality at the most affordable prices by a well trained, deeply caring staff of experienced professionals.

Each youth has a primary counselor who is supported by a team which includes medical, educational, psychological, and recreational specialists.  Upon arrival youths are assigned to an all-male or all-female primary treatment group that models a return to a healthy community peer group.  Each group is facilitated by two chemical dependency professionals who conduct groups seven days a week.

Living accommodations are also gender-specific, with two separate wings, one all-male and the other all-female.  Patient rooms come complete with outside view, twin beds, and full bath, including tub and shower.
