A longtime Lakeside organization closes: After nearly 50 years of operation on Willow Road, the Calvary Ranch Drug and Alcohol Recovery Facility will be closing down. The surprising announcement came through a letter sent out from Paulette McAloon, co-founder of the ranch. Ms. McAloon thanked her faith partners for their support over the past 47 years.

“Calvary Ranch has been like a home to many people, whether they were struggling with addiction, attending our church or just visiting for the day,” said McAloon in the letter.

Tom and Paulette founded Calvary Ranch in 1975 as a residential treatment facility. Their motto was “God does the healing for you.”

According to an online review, certified drug and alcohol abuse counselors worked with men only in both short and long term programs, with the cost depending on the length of stay. The programs consisted of group sessions and were based on the teachings of the Bible.

The office on Maine Avenue has closed down and the website now defaults to the farewell letter. The last Sunday Service was held on August 5, at 9:30 a.m.
