I came to the ranch a year and a half ago not wanting to live. I got here, sick and tired and messed up and the first thing everyone gave me was care. I didn't want to get sober and everyone related to me and told me there was a better way to live. I ended up getting court ordered until graduation and it was the best thing that could have happened. The ranch is a very difficult program but that is only because the growth rate we go through here is very fast. Now, Im a wooden graduate, have a clean record, and get the opportunity to go back to school, while still working at the ranch to pursue what I want to do. The ranch has saved my life and I have seen it do the same for many other people.
