For the past decade, reSTART has worked with emerging adults in early recovery, specifically focused on helping those struggling with Internet and video game use. However, from day one, clients are immediately asked to engage in an assessment process, attend multiple group meetings daily, build a sustainable use plan, and engage in intensive psychotherapy. While ReSTART has seen many successful outcomes, ReSTART recognizes that this faster pace may sidestep the time needed to ground, slow down, de-tech (detox) and focus on the foundation of health first and foremost.
Rise-up Ranch will allow clients to slow the process down at a time when they need it most. The ranch will offer a healthy meaningful place to ground, reflect, renew, and ready oneself for building a well thought-out plan once they’ve moved to the Heavensfield campus.
By focusing on a strong beginning which includes healthy eating, proper sleep hygiene, social and emotional connections, 12-step, and a thorough assessment, clients will be ready to engage in intensive counseling, and building a long term plan that will be prepared with a clear head, mind, and heart.
Daily activities will involve caring for animals on the ranch, such as goats, chickens, kittens, dogs and horses and the day to day responsibility of ranch living.
ReSTART is excited about the potential this new shared community will offer in helping people reSTART life.
Headquartered in Fall City, Washington, reSTART is a leading advocate of healthy sustainable digital media use (internet, VR, and videogames) for people and the planet. reSTART offers staffed residential care for youth (13-17) and life sharing retreats for adults (ages 18-30), along with independent living support.
