Client Testimonials

"Attending IOP at Windmill Wellness Ranch following inpatient treatment at the ranch and returning home helped me to continue building a solid foundation for my recovery. Their IOP therapists are very skilled, knowledgeable, supportive, and top-notch in the recovery field.  I am forever grateful for this team! Thank you!"
- Mitch, Omaha NE.

"The instructions to join group & individual sessions were simple. The time spent in VIOP sessions has proven to be a valuable extension of my treatment at WWR. I feel the ongoing support from staff & VIOP is key to my pursuit of recovery. I am grateful forthe experience."
- Tracy S.

"I came in hopeless and broken but determined to get better.  I didn’t come in for substance abuse and I was hesitant because the program really focuses on that and once, I got into the program/IOP, I realized that I am an alcoholic.  I am dreading being finishedwith my 8-week IOP.
Basically, I am so thankful for the IOP program and if anyone would tell me that it isn’t worth the money, I would argue with them.  If anyone was skeptical like me that it didn’t help the people that needed mental health and not substance abuse help, I’d certainly argue it with them!
With all of this being said, THANK YOU to you and all of the staff.  Alex was great to work with on my admissions and Sheli and Johanna are just simply amazing."

- Jeanne

"My wife participated in the IOP three mornings each week. Each day she would enter the meeting feeling lost and hopeless struggling with emotional challenges relating to her physical health. Each day in the IOP, She found a reason to fight on and keep movingforward. She is now on the healing path having found the root cause of her physical challenges. But during the dark days of wondering what was happening to her she found the support to continue to search for answers from this group. We are both thankfulit was available and someone so full of caring for others was leading each session with the skill and empathy she needed."
