New Year’s Resolutions to Boost Your Recovery

With the temperatures starting to drop outside, the holidays are clearly right around the corner. After Thanksgiving, Christmas will follow closely behind. While this is a time for family members, friends, and other loved ones to get together and catch up, this can also be a challenging time of year for those who are in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Surrounded by memories and alcohol, this can bring on a lot of stress that can be challenging for those in recovery. Fortunately, there is a New Year resolutions list that can help people stay on track during their drug and alcohol rehab.

New Year Resolution 1. Learning a New Sober Hobby

One of the key steps that people need to take in order to free themselves from an addiction is to change up the routine. Changing up the routine will eliminate the circumstances that drove someone to drink in the first place. One of the ways to do this is to learn a new sober hobby. This may take the form of an art or craft, such as woodworking or knitting. This might even include sports, such as intramural basketball or soccer. Ther are also individual sports such as golf that people can try. This might even include learning a new language or picking up a good book. A new sober hobby is a great New Year’s resolution for those in recovery.

New Year Resolution 2. Writing in a Journal

Another great resolution to think about is writing in a journal. Writing in a journal is a great way or someone to reflect on their life, their addiction, and how they have recovered since then. Writing in a journal will allow someone to reflect without reliving, reminding them of why they decided to free themselves from their addiction in the first place. Making a resolution to write in a journal every day during the new year can help someone stay sober.

New Year Resolution 3. Exercising on a Regular Basis

Exercise is a common New Year’s resolution; however, for someone in recovery, it simply means more. Exercise is a great way to not only take care of one’s health but also keep someone’s mood elevated. Exercise releases endorphins which can help someone stay happy. Exercise can also help someone manage stress, which is one of the keys to staying sober. Think about making a resolution to exercise several times per week.

Addiction Recovery Reviews

Renaissance Ranch is an amazing program. Dave and his team are extremely dedicated, honest, and ethical. Sobriety is a long-term commitment and the program at Renaissance Ranch gives you the tools you need to feel your best. I respect the owners’ mission and believe in their commitment to their patients.
JaCee Bullock

Chad Black
Thank you so much saved my uncle's life.
Tyler Morrill
I've been going to the ranch for 6 weeks and not sure where'd I be if I never enrolled. Renaissance is like family and the group convo has got me through sobriety. I'm finally getting my life back together because of this place. Kassidy and Dave are amazing individuals. I Highly recommend Renaissance Ranch if your struggling with addiction.
Derek Martinez
I would recommend this center to anyone looking for help with addiction.My husband went to Renaissance Ranch and he is doing great.I did the family program and it has helped me so much.Thank you!
Chris Davis
Several years ago I went with a loved one to a court ordered addiction program. While I could see that the counselors truly wanted to help their clients, I often left thinking that it was a very cold environment. I never heard anyone there speaking from experience.From the moment I met Dave, I knew he got it and understands the struggles. He freely shares about his own road to recovery. He has always treated me with kindness and respect. Most of all, I see his example of how to live in recovery. I found hope that I can finally conquer my addictions. If you are looking for a place to heal yourself and your family from the ravages of addiction, here's the place to start your journey.
Renee Carpenter
I have a friend who struggled with substance abuse issues for years that went to Renaissance Ranch in Ogden, Ut. It is great to see he has turned his life around and is doing great! I would recommend anyone who has a family member or friend battling substance abuse issues to contact them.
Brandon Bolinder
I am a 24 year old man and came to Renaissance with unmanageable depression, anxiety and anger issues after I tried to quit abusing alcohol and marijuana. I admitted I felt scared and pathetic for even needing treatment. Immediately after my intake interview I joined my first group session and soon learned it wasn't pathetic at all to seek treatment, it was a sign of great strength.The group has always accepted everything I've said with open hearts, challenged my close mindedness with care, and prompted me to share even when I feel closed and isolated.The Ranch has made me realize no one is ever alone. People care for one another here, absences are noticed with concern and relapses (if they happen) are talked through and understood. Shame is NEVER a part of this dynamic. Some sessions are fun and full of laughter and jokes, some are intense and very introspective. At the end of each day, we have all worked through some aspect of our addiction. Without the support of this group I would not have the tools to continue practicing sobriety and reclaim good health and happiness.(However, I did gain about 20 pounds because members often bring sweets to share. You win some you lose some)
Zachery Johnstun
I am forever grateful and in debt to Renaissance Ranch Ogden. The love and support that they offer to myself and others who have struggled with addiction far surpasses to other treatment centers that I have been involved with. The program focuses on the personal development and self-care that is needed to be successful. One-on-one sessions and group meetings are available, and in turn the group members all become extended family that truly care about the success of one another. I am so happy that Renaissance Ranch Ogden has given me a new found hope and ability to tackle any and all obstacles that may come to face, and do so in a positive manner. Truly saved my life, and the well-being of those closest to me. Thank you so much!
T Brim
The Ranch really cares about your personal recovery. It is a friendly loving environment that has helped me and many others to live in peace without addiction. This facility is about helping people not about money and numbers. Thanks love you guys.
Ryan Mccloy
Our family will be forever grateful for this program and the people who work there!!
Teri Mccloy
My brother Ryan is a kind and strong soul. So am i, but Im still lost. The ranch is helping and digging to find my inner self. I respect that. But I'm not rich, so I'm using what I got. And it really is worth it.
Jared Hurst
I got my Brother to do the renaissance ranch program. For his alcohol addiction. He's been going for a 2 weeks now and he really enjoys going. I've been able to talk to him more and his anger problems have been going away. Also his alcohol problem has been decreasing. My brother says that the groups he's been going to don't judge him and he realizes that there are other that there are people there with the same problems if not worse, Dave is a commendable guy, I got to meet a gal their named Charlotte she was awesome. They do one on one counseling with each person. I would recommend this program with any one that needs help in any addiction problem or anger issues. It's been only 2 weeks and I can notice a big difference in my brother already. Thank you Renaissance Ranch.
Ryan Hurst
Finding Renaissance Ranch IOP in Ogden was literally an answer to prayer. Words cannot express how grateful I am for this program and the people who provide it. It has helped me reconnect with God and remove heavy burdens I have carried around for decades. For the first time in a long time I feel like I have real hope - and the support I need to keep moving forward. The opposite of addiction is not sobriety. The opposite of addiction is connection! The program at RR guides you toward that connection with God, with yourself, and with others. Anyone and everyone could benefit from the knowledge, insights, and support available through this program. There are so many types of addiction, but in the end they are all just different ways to try and cope with stress, fear, pain, etc. This program helps you realize there is only ONE solution to truly overcome addiction and take your life back. Finding Renaissance Ranch is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. So grateful to be a part of it.
Brandon B.
Very nice people. Very good place. Great place to go to get help.
Sam Earley

Renaissance Ranch gave me a new life of freedom, happiness and joy!
Bob Featherstone
I found renaissance ranch at a time when my meaning to keep going on had depleted.. I was giving up. As a last resort I started attending groups and from day one something was different from the other programs I looked at.. I felt like they truly cared and they knew where I had been, and truly cared where I was going! the overal feeling you get from this place is something that can't really be described! Whatever it is I can honestly say it has changed and saved me! It's one of those things that if your struggling, you need to come here and feel it for yourself!
Jace Elmer
I truly appreciate the concept of Renaussance Ranch. I feel that there concept of addiction recovery is whole and complete.
Roger Condie
The team at Renaissance Ranch Ogden truly understands how to provide individualized counseling and care. In speaking to them, you'll quickly understand you've found somewhere that truly cares about your mental, spiritual, and emotional health. I highly recommend them.
Laurie Wall
This is a great place I would highly recommend it!
Chris Morris
I knew someone who went through here and they had nothing but great things to say about this place.
Chris Duersch

Hunter Barnes
My uncle went through this program. It has not only helped him and his immediate family so much, but the rest of our family as well. I am grateful for the devotion and love they have towards anyone who comes in. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
Kelsi Barnes
I'm am so grateful for the staff and their program that brought me to a new and thankful life. Their patience and dedication to my recovery literally saved my life.i highly recommend them to anyone truely looking for help in their recovery.
Mark Achter
You are NOT A BURDEN, YOU HAVE A BURDEN that is to heavy to carry. Allow others to help lift this burden.....(Professionals, people just like you and loved ones) Just come!!! That's all they asked. I was wondering if it would REALLY help? I've struggled on and off for 20 years of my life. With every substance. And let me just say this. Why did I wait so dang long? I learned why I did the things I did. Even though I didn't want to. I learned why my habits had taken over my amazing life. But most importantly. I learned I was not unique. All kinds of people!! No matter their status, job, religion. SO BENIFIFICAL!! For me and all involved! Come, experience this PLEASE!! Real life is so much better!!
Josh Adams
I love this place! The staff helps you stay on the right path toward sobriety. They're awesome to work with. I recommend this to anyone that wants help!! If I can give more stars I would.
Jodi Becerril
Know a couple of guys that went through there. They do an amazing job.
Bentley Bingham
I'm amazed at the extra attention given to detail at Renaissance Ranch Ogden, they make everyone feel welcome, they sincerely care for each and every persons needs. The counselors doors are always open if we need some one on one time with them. I didn't know how much I needed their help until I started attending, If you or someone you know needs help with their addiction, I highly recommend Renaissance Ranch Ogden it's warm and welcoming. It's been a fantastic experience on my road to recovery.
Randy Regional Manager
My family had a great experience with Renaissance Ranch. They were empathetic and very sensitive to any and all unique situations.
Christopher Penland
There are so many wonderful things to say about this incredible program that 1) it would be impossible to address all the terrific aspects in one short review, and 2) no matter how eloquent I could write the words will still be inadequate to express just how great this program really is. How could I say how grateful I am for this program that literally has saved my life. When I came into the program I was broken, defeated, overwhelmed and had all but given up. This was my last attempt to save my life. By the time I came to the program I had a suicide plan and means with the intent to end my life. With a family history of completed suicide I knew if I was going to act upon my plan that I would dang sure make sure it worked and that I would complete it not just attempt it. At the time I finally entered the program life felt much harder to continue to live than it felt to just give up and die. I am blessed there are other people in my life that I just didn’t want to hurt to that degree but even so I really was “done” with living. Tired of being addicted and depressed, tired of trying to put my life back in order and unable to do so, I was willing to give my life one more try and the only thing I could think of doing was reaching out to a program and professionals that just might be able to help me. My insurance was not contracted with any dual diagnosis (dx) programs (substance abuse and mental health issues) in this area. So I went in search of a program that might be able to meet my needs. I called several programs in the area and continued to be disappointed and defeated because they would not accept me for one reason or another, or they were not truly dual dx programs. Then I finally talked to Dave Rose with the Renaissance Ranch Addiction Treatment Center and for the first time in many many months I finally found a little bit of hope. He knew my story, he had lived my story, and now he was busy helping others change the ongoing chapters of their lives. I felt accepted and understood from the beginning, both with my addiction and with the serious aspect of my mental illness. I had been down for such a long time and without hope for such a prolonged period that I still did not hold out a lot of hope. At least when I talking with Dave about this program I could tell here was a real person who truly sounded genuine, passionate and informed about these diseases. He was transparent, honest and encouraging and I could tell he really understood what was going on with me because he told me my story before I told my story to him. He truly knew what I was doing, what I was going through, what I was feeling and just how low I had fallen.(please see 2nd and 3rd part of this review, thanks)
Diana Williams
I know Dave Rose personally and he is one of the best people I know. If you, or someone you care about needs help, this is the place to go. Dave will make sure the kind of treatment needed will be given.
Jon West
My family and I are forever grateful for Renaissance ranch. Dave rose is my uncle and he was at a point in his life where he felt like it was over and he couldn't find a way out. It got to the point where it was about to tear our family apart, and ever since he came here it has strengthened his relationship with his immediate family especially his wife Chris and the rest of us as well. They got sealed in the temple together and changed him into a completely different person for the better. Love this program!
Andrea oettinger
I've been so impressed with the tremendous blessings our family has seen. We have watched Dave Rose and his family increase spiritually and his example has helped our family and so many others.
Cory Davis
The Ranch saved my life in 2009! My husband went to rehab there and I was able to participate in the family program they offered. I thought my husband was the one that needed "fixin" but I learned that addiction is truly a family disease.....I was able to find my Savior and apply his atonement into my life.....and for that, I am forever grateful!!!
Shalonna Rich
In 2004 I was searching for a rehab facility for myself. I met with David Rose and was so impressed. He helped me get a scholarship for the program. I attended Therapia women's center in St George and it's the best decision I ever made. David made me feel so comfortable and was so knowledgeable because he has been through it himself. I will never forget his kindness and willgness to help me. I am celebrating 4 years sober this year thanks to Renaissance Ranch and Therapia!
Rachel Goodrich
Great place to go for treatment. I'm forever grateful for the Ranch and the experiences I had there.
J. Christensen
Dave Rose and Renaissance Ranch were an amazing resource to me when I was serving as an LDS Bishop. I was able to see the miracle of addiction recovery and healing for one my good friends and ward members who had struggled with drug addiction for most of his life. He has been sober for 5 years now. The blessings of freedom from this awful sickness are immeasurable to this good man and his family.
Quinn Kunz
I am personal friends with someone who went thru this program. His story is inspirational. Reinaissance Ranch is a place of hope and success.
Judi Van Eperen
I had the opportunity to work with Dave Rose for several years. He approaches this mission with empathy, love and compassion. If you, or your loved one, need addiction treatment,; trust that Dave and Renaissance Ranch will provide the highest standard of care. Be assured that you'll be treated with honesty, integrity and dignity. Helping addicts and families to recover from this affliction is the priority of Dave Rose. I'm aware of the service which Renaissance Ranch Ogden provides,, and would highly recommend this program.Steven Brown, LCSW

I am very grateful for Dave Rose and the Renaissance Ranch Ogden Staff. I am currently in The IOP program, and it has provided me with a safe place to go and share how my day is going. It has also set me up with the structure I need in my life right now. The facility is beautiful inside, and has a strong "spirit of recovery" feeling inside. I feel very blessed to be in IOP with Renaissance Ranch Ogden and have another chance at life, I would definitely Recommend Renaissance Ranch Ogden to anyone battling drug Addiction!Adam T. Honstein

I have known Dave Rose since we were both 15 years old, at Ogden High School in the early 1980's. I have always loved how accepting he has been of me, even in my painfully shy, awkward early days. I could see he was hurting, yet never understood why, and this was the time he began struggling with substance abuses. I definitely could relate with him, yet my issues were different.After High School graduation, about five years later, we worked together, and it was blatantly obvious he was deep in his struggle with addiction, yet I didn't know what to say, so didn't say anything. He was still that likeable guy, just lost within himself.Time passed then recently he opened the South Ogden Renaissance Ranch Addiction Recovery Center, and invited me over for a tour. We shared our life experiences with each other, and I feel so blessed to see the beginning stage, the intermediate stage, and then finally the end result of recovery. He has always been that amazing guy, yet he needed to find in himself what the rest of us who loved him saw all along, yet if we would have told him about it, he would not have believed it.He invited me to sit in on the family group evening sessions, and I accepted. After all, one can never learn too much. These group lessons on support and encouragement for loved ones struggling with addiction have been an eye opener for me, and I walk away filled with so much love for these people. GOD truly loves all his children!! I highly recommend this program to anyone who feels lost and alone. Dave Rose is truly a shepherd of the lost sheep.
