Healing Springs Ranch on M2 THE ROCK: Finding Meaning and Purpose in Recovery

Maybe that's god's intention for me to believe.
On this episode of M2 THE ROCK, Michael Molthan talks to Rachel Graham and Melissa Caldwell Engle of Healing Springs Ranch about finding meaning and purpose in recovery. Rachel and Melissa share their experiences of being in recovery themselves and working with clients at Healing Springs Ranch. They discuss the importance of addressing compulsive behaviors and underlying mental health issues in an integrated model. They also talk about chronic relapsers and how Healing Springs Ranch helps them get sober and find meaning in their lives. Michael, Rachel, and Melissa end the episode by sharing their vision for the future of Healing Springs Ranch and the impact they hope to have on the world.
Rachel and Melissa both emphasize the importance of the therapeutic community in recovery. Rachel explains that the milieu is the environment where clients interact with each other and staff. Melissa adds that being an active part of the milieu helps her stay connected to her own recovery and be a better therapist for her clients. They also discuss the concept of compulsive behaviors and addiction. Rachel explains that even if someone doesn't have a substance addiction, they may have other compulsive behaviors that can become a problem. Melissa adds that if you don't address the underlying emotional issues that drive these behaviors, people may stop one addiction but start another.
Rachel and Melissa discuss Healing Springs Ranch's integrated model for mental health. They explain that they address underlying issues like depression and anxiety instead of just treating symptoms as they arise. They also talk about the importance of finding meaning and purpose in recovery. Melissa shares that she has participated in every one of the groups at Healing Springs Ranch, and Rachel adds that she also speaks around the globe to help normalize addiction and teach people that everyone has some compulsive behaviors that can become problematic.
Michael, Rachel, and Melissa also talk about chronic relapsers and how Healing Springs Ranch helps them find meaning in their lives. Rachel shares that many chronic relapsers have been through traditional treatment programs that didn't address their underlying issues. Melissa adds that Healing Springs Ranch meets clients where they are and helps them figure out why they're medicating their emotional issues. Michael shares his vision for the future of Healing Springs Ranch, where he envisions that 100% of the staff will be alums of the program.
In conclusion, Rachel, Melissa, and Michael share their thoughts on the impact of Healing Springs Ranch on the world.
