Our Team

The Renaissance Professional Team have a wealth of knowledge and experience offering hope, healing and freedom from pornography and sexual addiction. In addition to our professional qualifications, we have each been through our own successful recovery from this devastating addiction. We can relate to what you’re going through because we’ve been there.

Rick & Christine Dixon, Family Support Specialists.

Rick and Christine Dixon are Spouse and Family Support Specialists at Renaissance Reclaim. They are passionate about helping family members learn the recovery principles and tools that not only brought tremendous healing and peace to their own individual lives, but also helped save their marriage and family! Rick and Christine have been intimately involved with addiction recovery as a married couple since they learned over 10 years ago of their two eldest sons’ addictions. For more than 10 years, they have been serving as addiction recovery 12-Step Group Leaders in local churches, the county jail, and the Utah State Prison. They trained under Kris Groves, ASUDC, while undergoing family group recovery for one of their own sons, who was fortunate to be a client at the Renaissance Ranch residential center years ago.

Jimmy Jagard, Recovery Coach

My name is Jimmy J. I am a Recovery Coach for the Renaissance Ranch Outpatient. I have been through treatment multiple times and it wasn’t until I came into the Renaissance Ranch that my life had been restored. I was introduced to a brotherhood of men like I had never experienced before. I have been sober for over 3 years now and I have a new life. I have started a family with a beautiful baby girl and most importantly I am comfortable in my own skin and I no longer have to live a life controlled by fear.
