The Ranch at Dove Tree is one of the nation's leaders of collegiate-focused addiction and behavioral health comprehensive treatment with recovery resiliency services. We offer hope through two separate programs, one for collegiate aged men, women and their families as well as one for other traditional adults by providing individualized, skills-focused treatment for addiction based on evidence based practices combined with the 12-Step foundation model. We specialize in alcohol and drug addiction with co-occurring issues such as depression, anxiety, disordered eating and trauma. Founded in 2002, we are privately owned and operated and licensed through the Texas Department of State Health Services to ensure high-quality standards are met and exceeded through our comprehensive treatment programs.

Facility Highlights

  • Men's Outdoor Adventure Program
  • Wellness Program for Women
  • Spiritual Treatment


  • Holistic Therapy

    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
  • Medical Detoxification

    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
