Shadow Mountain Recovery is a wonderful place for men to recovery. They have helped so many people over the years and continue to provide excellent treatment services. Richard P is an amazing person that has dedicated his life to help others. He does great work with these men to help progress them in the right direction. I would recommend this facility to anyone that is in need of addiction treatment!! Five stars all the way!!
If you want to change yourself and your life then Shadow Mountain Recovery in Taos, NM can work for you. My experience there didn't change everything but it put in motion a journey to happiness, fulfillment and sobriety that without the program I would not be on. Until going to Shadow Mountain I really thought I could handle my addiction on my own. This city boy realized, in the mountains of Taos, that he wasn't alone and there are people who want to help and can help. All you need is to be open to the process of healing, honesty, and positivity ("Go Deep"). It does require you to work and to be open but if you just put in a little effort you can find a new way, a new life, or just a new way of looking at the life you have now. I'd recommend treatment to anyone, addict or not. Life isn't always easy and reaching out for help can seem daunting, embarrassing, or weak but if you take the first step and choose a place like Shadow Mountain Recovery someone will definitely be there to guide you. Most importantly they'll be there to help you with every step after the most important step you chose for yourself. Addiction is a difficult and devastating disease but if you choose to take it on Shadow Mountain is a great place to start. Thanks to all the staff that helped me find my way and the new friends that will forever be a part of this journey. Choose sobriety, choose yourself, choose life.
I thought I lost an old friend from high school to addiction, I won't mention his name but he is a completely different person now. As much as I tried to help him, I never could. Almost a decade after we were in school together, he sought help through Shadow Mountain Recovery. To be honest, I always had doubts about rehab programs. Shadow Mountain proved me wrong when it comes to my friend. He is truly back to the person I have always respected so much. I can honestly say that if you know someone that is stuck in an addiction, this is the place that can help.
Shadow Mountain is a unique place. It’s location in the middle of a canyon is matched to no other. The atmosphere is very unique (in a good way). The mentors do a excellent job at menotoring, and Kasey (runs the place) is very good at what she does. Every Friday you go to a meeting then go out to eat. On saturdays you either hike, or do team building excersises. On sundays in the winter everyone goes up to Taos Ski Valley and either hang out and play cards, snowboard, or ski. This provides a nice break from the day to day grind. I find myself missing the atmosphere at times. If you’re willing to put the work into you’re recovery this place will help you and give you the tools you need. Shadow Mountain provides family oriented counseling. For some people this is what they need, and for some it is not. I’m giving this place 4 stars. The reason why I’m not giving it 5 is because of one counselor I didn’t see eye to eye with, who was initially running the place when I first got there. She shouldn’t have been running the place. There was no reasoning with her. Thankfully the higher ups understood that as well and brought in Kasey. Once Kasey started running the place, I found myself enjoying every bit of it.
I absolutely loved this place and very grateful for my experience here. The therapy is top notch and the staff makes you feel welcome from the Director to the Grounds Keeper. They keep you busy with activities and structure schedule to keep you busy and teach you the tools for life after recovery. I made great memories and friends I now call my Brothers.
There aren't enough words to express how thankful I am with Shadow Mountain and the treatment they gave to me, what I lived there is something I won't be able to live anywhere else, everything there was great and everything helped me to become who I am now.
I went to Shadow Mountain Rehab to address my issues with alcoholism and addiction. After realizing that for years I had been a functional addict I thought quitting or curbing this addiction would be easy but this disease is not so simple. Making the decision to go to Shadow Mountain Recovery in Taos, NM did not come lightly but I did understatement how much personal effort I would be putting in. 30 days doesn't solve everything but it does give you a chance to at least take stock of all that's going on in your life. Drinking and Drugs are just a symptom of something deeper and unique to each individual addressing their issues. This program gave me the tools and support to truly begin the process of addressing addiction, searching within and finding myself. I am 2 months sober now and my journey that began in the mountains of Taos goes on but the journey has definitely been made easier by what I learned in recovery. Sobriety is possible & if you work it guess what, it can work!
Awesome, ethical, professional, positive outcomes, sharing and caring for peers in the addiction community, freedom!
Shadow mountain offered the support, wisdom and guidance my son needed and when he asked. My son is back...20 months sober...strong, clear and commited. Big love to all those who loved my son back to health. Jane
Ripple Ranch was an amazing experience for me. Day 1 was so productive for me as speaking with the counselors and other staff to set my plan and my goals to be accomplished during my stay. The nurses and staff were more than eager to listen to any of my concerns and needs. I stayed for 45 days and grew close to all there. I came out a new person. As I did, I would recommend to detox at a hospital before coming in as you may miss some essential information on your first week of classes. Overall, I definitely say Ripple's "non 12 step" approach to my healing is one that I am greatly appreciative of in my sobriety. Thank you Ripple Ranch!
