About Us

Tanith Wilson, Director

My Name is Tanith and I believe I was born with the disease of addiction. From the very beginning it took charge of my life. The first time I used was with my stepsister. I was twelve and she was a couple of years older than me. She was cool and pretty and I didn't want her to think I was a baby, so when she pulled out a joint and her and her friend offered it to me, I acted like I had done this a hundred times before. The pot led to drinking, which led to pills, which led to coke. By the time I was fifteen I entered my first rehab. Somewhere between 15 and 17 I was sent to several other 30-day treatments.

Then at 17, I found the drug that was really for me, meth. The first time I tried it, I gave my whole paycheck to a guy that was manufacturing it. By the time I was 22 my life was a complete mess. I had exhausted my family; my two children lived with different family members and I barely knew them. I was in serious legal trouble. My life consisted of getting drugs, making dope, and doing dope. I didn't care about my family my children and least of all myself. I went into treatment for a year. There I was held accountable and taught to be responsible.

I believe in this program. I know it works because I'm proof. My life is better than I ever imagined it could be. I get to watch the miracle of sobriety take place every day. I have a wonderful husband and three awesome children that I actually know today. And most of all I have the very precious gift of sobriety.

I started using pot and alcohol when I was about 14. At first it didn't seem like it was that big of a deal. I just wanted to be part of the crowd. When I was 16 I tried coke for the first time. I knew instantly that I had found what I was looking for. Along with the coke, I was drinking heavily, taking lots of pills, and of course still smoking the pot. I got married, had my 3 children and continued to abuse drugs and alcohol.

It became increasingly difficult to be an alcoholic and a mother, so my children suffered along with everything else in my life. By the time I was 30 years old my disease had progressed to the point that I was using drugs intravenously. Today, by the grace of my higher power and the program of alcoholics anonymous I am 12 years sober. Unlike co-ed facilities which I had tried and failed. I got to deal with the core issues that kept me drunk. My life is completely different today. I have a home, meaningful people in my life, and a job I love. There is hope!

“I lost my stereotypes about women. I never hung out with women before I came to the liberty ranch. I was able to develop healthy relationships with women. I came to rely on them in sobriety and I never would have done that before. The house isn’t skewed by sexual tension and trying to impress the opposite sex ” Angel B.

“the advantages of an all women’s program is that it eliminates sexual tension. Here we can focus on our treatment and not be embarrassed to share what is going on with us. We don’t have to worry about trying to impress the men.” Fern B.

“the advantages in coming to an all women’s facility is the understanding. Men do not understand women. The way we work, the way we think. It makes it easier to open up when there aren’t any men around. Men are a big distraction for women. The difference between the ranch and other places I’ve been is the accountability and the structure. We don’t just focus on our behavior and what we did. We focus on why we did it.” Kalyn F.

“I really like that the program is 12-step based and affordable. We don’t have to worry about our appearances. We can be ourselves. There is a sisterhood here that I have never experienced before.” Crystal H.

“A lot of women including myself never hung out with women so we find it difficult to form relationships with women. Here I was able to build relationships with other women in recovery. I don’t think I would have dealt with my issues had I been in a setting where there were men present.” Aimee T.
