The Basics

Fire Sky Ranch is a male-only addiction recovery facility located in Lubbock Texas, only 10 minutes away from Lubbock International Airport. Founded in 2017, the CARF-accredited program is part of the Aspire Recovery Centers family and offers residential, outpatient and sober living services for men over 18.

Facility and Meals

Situated on a 500-acre ranch, Fire Sky is a large, southern-style manor with wrap-around porches. The facility has the capacity to accommodate up to 10 adult males and offers both single and double rooms. Each bedroom has two twin beds, each with its own bedside table. Clients at Fire Sky share bathrooms that come with marble floors, full bathtubs and showers. The living spaces have multiple shared sitting areas with leather chairs and plush couches and flat screen TVs. The basement has table tennis, arcade games, foosball and video game consoles that are readily available for clients. There is also a gym with a full collection of stationary workout equipment.

Fire Sky has an on-site chef who prepares three healthy, well-balanced meals a day consisting of local fruits, vegetables and lean meats. The chef also aims to accommodate any dietary restrictions or needs each client may have. Clients sometimes participate in the meal preparation process and are occasionally allowed to eat out. Fire Sky serves coffee and tea throughout the day.

Treatment Protocol and Team

To be admitted to Fire Sky clients must at least 18 with an IQ of at least 70 to ensure that they can understand the whole concept and process of rehab. Fire Sky does not offer detox on-site and clients are required to be physically and mentally stable prior to entering treatment. The organization does however refer clients in need of detox to local facilities. Fire Sky offers dual diagnosis support through medication management and mental health counseling to clients with prescribed medication needs and co-occurring disorders.

Fire Sky is very close to Texas Tech and runs a 90-day New Start Collegiate track for college aged men as well as a Reintegration Adult program for men who have established careers and family obligations to return to after treatment. Although the length of stay varies from client to client, all residents must commit to at least thirty days of residential care and usually stay for 90 days. The treatment consists of both group and individual therapy that employs modalities such as CBT, DBT, EMDR and Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET). The organization also offers psychoeducation classes and teaches about conflict resolution, life skills, spirituality and relationships. Clients are also regularly paired with supportive peers to help guide their progress throughout therapy.

Fire Sky offers aftercare treatment through sober living referrals and outpatient care. The outpatient treatment option consists of both group and individual therapy. The length and intensity of the program is completely individualized and based on the needs of the client.

The organization also offers a monthly group meeting for family members of clients. This meeting focuses on substance abuse education and support methods. The facility uses the 12-step approach and clients attend both on and off site AA/NA meetings.

The organization has a staff of 13 men that includes LADCs, CADCs, a team of nurses, a psychiatrist and on-site support staff.

Bonus Amenities

Fire Sky utilizes holistic methods such as equine therapy, music therapy and art therapy. The organization also uses the four step R.E.S.E.T (Resilience Focused, Experiential, Self-Efficacy, Treatment) model to teach clients how to manage cravings, reduce the effect of institutionalization and leverage equine therapy. This method also promotes volunteering, art and music therapy, building self-confidence, recreation, meditation and medical care.

Clients at the facility engage in cookouts, weekend hiking, fishing, camping, tours of the town and other outdoor activities.
