My name is Lindsey and I am 29 years old and come from an 11 year addiction to opiates. Before coming to The Refuge Ranch my life was filled with destruction and chaos. I was broken and hopeless. My relationships with my family were all but over and I was facing 5 years in prison due to the choices I made in my addiction. I have been to rehabs in the past but they did not work for me. I came to a point where I knew the only place to look was to the Lord and I am beyond grateful that I did. Since being here I have received healing in so many areas of my life. The Lord has filled the void inside of me and I am now able to experience peace as well as hope. My relationships with my fajmily are better than they have ever been and I have been able to ask for forgiveness from them. However most importantly I have established a relationship with the Lord that has surpassed all my expectations. It has opened my eyes to a completely new way of life, one full of joy and contentment. I graudated the program in September 2017 and made an additional 12 month commitment to Servant Leadership Training. I am excited to be given the opportunity to continue to grow as a woman in Christ while giving back to the new women in the program. I know the Lord has huge plans for my future and I can't wait to watch them unfold. 


"My name is Meghanne and I came to The Refuge Ranch in 2011. I sat in jail for the third time in three months and had become someone I never thought I would be. I had lied, stolen, destroyed my family, injected pain killers and cocaine and was facing prison. I was in a hole I couldn’t see a way out of. In my addiction I couldn’t get high enough to make the pain, shame and guilt go away. I had tried since I was fourteen to fill this void in my heart with men, drugs, money and things; yet, I was emptier than ever. I had no goals, dreams or self-worth. I had been kicked out of two secular rehab programs and felt hopeless and helpless.


As I sat in jail, I had no more ideas, plans and options. I was defeated and exhausted. I gave up and cried out to God and He heard me. Instead of prison, I was sentenced to The Refuge Ranch. I gave my life to the Lord and began to feel loved, special and beautiful knowing the Creator who knitted me together. I’ve learned all those material things don’t define me or give me worth. I have been made new in Christ. I was baptized while I was in the program and I live for Him now. This was the hardest yet best year of my life. I’ve faced my past, found healing and He has restored my family. Although my horrible addiction brought me here, I wouldn't change a thing because of who I am today. I graduated on September 29, 2012, and stayed for Stage 2 for six weeks, then a year of Servant Leadership Training where I continued to learn, grow and give back the love that was given to me. My life has purpose, hope and a future which I never thought was possible."
