When I came to Circle Tree Ranch I expected it to be just like every other treatment center.Allison
I thought to myself ‘I know the 12-steps inside and out, and I still can’t stay clean’. Circle Tree Ranch was different. It really changed my life.
The faculty at Circle Tree Ranch believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself; they surrounded me, supported me, and just wouldn’t quit when others had given up hope. I can’t even put into words how grateful I am to Circle Tree Ranch for the gift of my life.Jorge
When I arrived at Circle Tree Ranch the depth of my despair and hopeless was so great that I had no longer cared if I lived or died. Today I am a woman with self respect, dignity and vision. Relationships I thought were lost have been restored. I cherish my life, and will be forever grateful for what Circle Tree Ranch has given me and my family.Mother of 2

When I arrived I felt like a failure. My self-esteem and self-worth were so low that I felt that I wasn’t any good for anyone. At Circle Tree Ranch I learned to love and care about myself and others. I no longer felt alone.Jaime
Today, one year after our son arrived at Circle Tree Ranch, we know he finally found the right place.
