Windmill Wellness Ranch was created by Shannon Malish out of necessity. She wanted to combine established successful treatment protocols with the latest technological breakthroughs. Furthermore, it became clear that Texas did not have a holistic wellness center that addressed co-occurring disorders at a level that truly restored a person's mental and physical health for good. In addition to addressing co-occurring disorders, we also have a full medical detoxification wing for those that need stabilization or detoxification and we are members of the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM).

Research and experience show that addressing the underlying disorder takes masters level clinical staff in order to diagnose and then treat the problem. This is done in conjunction with a psychiatrist. We do not simply give you a pill for depression or anxiety, we examine where that disorder originated. Then we design an individualized treatment program using evidenced-based practices. Many have not recognized that alcohol or substance abuse (i.e. prescription pills or illegal drugs) are symptoms of a larger issue. 

Addiction treatment is not easy. Windmill Wellness Ranch is a dog friendly facility. We found that having a dog friend during treatment helps with the patient’s wellness, and seems to improve our outcomes. 

Currently, Windmill Wellness Ranch has a success rate of roughly 86%; Compared to the national average of 4%. We meticulously track our success metrics using an independent third-party, Trac9, which regularly shows Windmill's outcomes surpass those of competitors.
