Dr. Jeffrey L. Butts

Medical Director | M.D.

Dr. Butts is a fellow of the American Board of Addiction Medicine and is a diplomate of the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians (double board certified addictionologist). He earned his undergraduate degree from The University of Texas in Austin and medical degree from Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Worth.

Dr. Butts began practicing medicine as a family physician where he ran a solo family practice for 15 years. In 1999, he embraced an emerging trend in medical practice known as “concierge medicine” and began offering personalized treatment packages. In 2003, Dr. Butts founded a concierge practice called Celebrity Care making ‘house calls’ for the music and film industry.

Dr. Butts was not immune to life challenges that included a personal struggle with drugs and alcohol. These challenges led to a specialty change in 2004. He sold his solo practice and followed a path into addiction medicine. He worked from 2006 till 2011 in an addiction practice, mentored by one of the early advocates of medication-assisted treatment for the opioid addicted patient (David Jones M.D.).

Dr. Butts and Mrs. Jennifer Butts moved to Boerne, Texas in 2011 and opened Celebrity Care Medical Clinic, an outpatient addiction practice. The ‘celebrities’ Dr. Butts treats now are individuals in recovery from a substance use disorder. Celebrity Care offers personalized and confidential treatment of unhealthy lifestyles in an affordable program under the care of a Suboxone licensed physician for stabilizing opioid dependency. Medications prescribed for alcohol use disorder include Vivitrol, Campral, and Antabuse. Co-occurring mood disorders and pain in individuals prone to addiction are also addressed.

Dr. Butts served as the medical director for Covenant Hills, a residential treatment center for women from 2011 till 2016. This experience motivated him to establish Addiction Medicine Consultants of Texas (AMCOT), PLLC in 2013. AMCOT provides addiction medicine consults, medical directorships, in-patient treatment, and aftercare to the broader treatment community. He is the Medical Director for Ripple Recovery Ranch and has held the position as interim Medical Director during start-up and transition periods for SOBA Recovery Center, Cedar Creek Recovery, and Warriors Heart.

AMCOT is gearing up to meet a new challenge for 2018 – to expand availability and provision of evidence based addiction treatment (medication-assisted therapy) in underserved markets through the use of telemedicine technology. Dr. Butts is teaming up with other addiction professionals including psychiatrists, mid-level providers, and counselors to provide addiction consults 24/7.

Dr. Butts’ Altruistic projects have included past medical mission trips to Guyana, Mexico, Venezuela, and serving as a founding board member for the Tribal Outreach Medical Assistance Foundation.

Randee Garcia

Admissions Manager

Randee was born and raised in California but knew she was a Texas girl at heart. She fell into the role of a wife/mother at a young age but started forgetting to take care of herself. Randee always struggled with addictive behaviors but didn’t see a problem until her life became completely unmanageable. Once she got the gift of desperation, she entered Ripple Ranch’s in-patient program.

After completing the program successfully, she was determined to continue turning her life around and to help others do the same. Randee has done just that by working as a client navigator helping the homeless get resources for affordable healthcare, food, and housing, and she has spent many nights working as a behavioral technician. Randee is an example to others of how recovery is always possible.

Randee has now returned to Ripple Ranch as an admissions counselor to continue helping others see that light in the darkness. When she is not at work, she spends her time with her family and loves every minute of it.

Dr. Dorcas Iyabo Adepoju

Psychiatrist | Psy.D.

Dr. Dorcas Iyabo Adepoju was born in Washington, D.C. and raised in the suburbs of Maryland.  She moved to San Antonio, Texas in May 2012 to specifically serve as a psychiatrist in the underserved community. Dr. Adepoju chose to serve people experiencing homelessness in San Antonio, Texas.  She had committed to treating underserved communities when she completed her undergraduate degree.  Dr. Adepoju signed up for the National Health Service Corps (NHSC), which paid her tuition to medical school in return for 4 years of service to underserved communities.  She graduated from Loma Linda University School of Medicine, located in Loma Linda, California, in 2006.  She completed her psychiatry residency at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Wichita, Kansas in 2010.

Dr Adepoju held her first job at Southwest Arkansas Counseling and Mental Health Center (SWACMHC) in the state of Arkansas.  There she treated psychiatric illnesses in children, adolescents, and adults.  After approximately 2 years at SWACMHC, she moved to San Antonio, Texas and finished up the NHSC commitment at the Center for Health Care Services (CHCS) in their clinic located on the Haven for Hope campus, working with people experiencing homelessness in San Antonio, Texas.  She continued to work with the homeless population in San Antonio from May 2012 to June 2019.  Dr. Adepoju enjoyed working with people experiencing homelessness.  She expresses that “it was a challenging but academically, professionally, and spiritually fulfilling service.  I learned to do much with little resources, and I was inspired by the resilience and strength of most of my clients.”

In the Summer of 2019,  Dr. Adepoju worked for the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team where she diagnosed and treated psychiatric illnesses in individuals who had severe and persistent mental illnesses and who were repeatedly hospitalized for psychiatric and/or physical illnesses.  She resigned from her full-time position with the ACT Team in December 2020.  Dr. Adepoju briefly worked at a private practice psychiatric clinic in San Antonio prior to joining Ripple Ranch Recovery (August 2021) and Continuum Outpatient Centers (November 2021) where she offers psychiatric evaluation and treatment to individuals with mental health and/or or substance use disorders.   In addition, she also works as a subcontractor for Get2ten Consulting, completing psychiatric evaluations for individuals who have open cases with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services as well as volunteers to supervise psychiatric residents (i.e., doctors training to be psychiatrists) from the Texas Institute for Graduate Medical Education and Research (TIGMER).
