The Nugen's Ranch Program
Every treatment plan begins with a careful, personlized assessment. The client and the counselor draft a treatment plan together, that lists problem areas, target issues, and the steps needed to solve them. Through individual weekly sessions, therapy groups and other personal growth activities, each client learns how to apply healthy solutions to problems in all areas of their life.
The treatment program at Nugen's Ranch is based on the AA Twelve Step philosophy. That philosophy, which has guided thousands of Alaskans to sober lives, believes that alcoholism and drug addictions are overcome and controlled by a basic change in self-understanding and an improved sense of self-worth.
Staff members at Nugen's Ranch lead educational programs, provide healthy adult role models, and make themselves available for individuals help on special issues like money management and good eating habits. The staff is always willing to participate in the many special celebrations and down-home social activities at the Ranch.
