Public Finance Authority Helps to Finance Superior Living Foundation, Inc.’s Ripple Ranch Recovery Expansion 

March 9 – The Public Finance Authority is pleased to announce financing is completed for the Superior Living Foundation, Inc.’s Ripple Ranch Recovery expansion in Spring Branch, Texas. According to application material, this financing will allow Ripple Ranch Recovery to expand from a 15-bed (12 residential and three detox) addiction treatment facility to a 30-bed facility that includes 24 residential beds in two buildings and a separate six- bed detox building as well as a new therapy space, commercial kitchen, dining space, and offices. Additionally, it is anticipated that this financing allows an outpatient treatment center to open in a separate location to provide continued care for its patients after they leave residential treatment or for patients wanting to try an outpatient option first. 

“We applaud PFA’s role in the Superior Living Foundation, Inc.’s Ripple Ranch Recovery expansion project because this project will provide important support for those struggling with addiction,” said Mark O’ Connell, president and CEO of Wisconsin Counties Association, a founding sponsor organization of PFA. “PFA provides financing assistance to projects such as Ripple Ranch Recovery that are making a difference in their local communities, without any risk to the taxpayer.”

Ripple Ranch Recovery provides unique, individualized addiction treatment plans for individuals suffering from addiction. They use evidence-based treatment methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and trauma-informed treatments, like eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) to help patients reach their  goals of reconfiguring their thoughts and behaviors to succeed in long-term recovery. According to their website,” Our approach is simple: Everyone is different, so each treatment program is customized to match the needs of the client. We use evidence-based treatment along with a holistic approach to address the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of recovery. These treatments will provide clients with the tools they need to remain in recovery for the rest of their lives.”
