Spring Lake Ranch

1169 Spring Lake Road, Shrewsbury, Vermont, 5738
Online Reviews: A
CARF logo SAMHSA logo

Spring Lake Ranch is a dual diagnosis substance abuse treatment facility that specializes in utilizing work therapy as one of the core foundations of recovery for men and women over the age of 18. Work therapy is a more holistic approach where clients participate in different chores and daily activities such as animal care, gardening, and other “constructive” activities. Each residential treatment program includes services such as individual therapy, group therapy, medication management, case management, community involvement, yoga, and recreational activities. The overall goal of incorporating all of these services is to give clients meaningful work, develop positive self-esteem, learn how to communicate effectively, develop life skills, problem-solve effectively, and develop a sense of connection with the world and nature. Clients are allowed to stay as long as is necessary, but the average length of stay here is between 6 and 12 months.

What they treat: Dual diagnosis substance abuse and depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, mood disorders, schizoaffective disorder, schizophrenia, PTSD, and OCD.
