Welcome to Discovery Ranch
Discovery Ranch combines the power of traditional therapy and experiential therapy to create a clinically sophisticated, relationship based residential treatment program for boys and girls ages 13-18.
Troubled teens with emotional and behavioral issues receive the help they need through relationships and experiences in a strength based environment.
We help families whose students struggle with a variety of emotional, behavioral and emotional issues, such as:
- Social Struggles
- Low self-esteem
- Adoption/Attachment issues
- Substance Abuse and other Addictions
- Grief and Loss
- Mood Disorders
- Oppositional defiance
- Eating disorders
- Learning Disorders
- Non Verbal Learning Disability
Discovery Ranch is located on a beautiful 20-acre ranch at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains.
Besides traditional one-on-one sessions with their therapists, Discovery Ranch students spend their days in a variety of experiential activities that include
Equine Assisted Therapy, raising feeder calves, on-site ropes course, on and off-campus Recreation Therapy, and residential life.
Our brand of emotionally rich experiential therapy is effective because it lowers students’ defenses and creates a safe environment for change. It doesn’t look or feel like traditional therapy. Our experiential program is more than just a filling time. It’s a mind set. Students progress faster because they have more opportunities to practice what they are learning.
Our specialized single gender hybrid program provides a real life, safe environment for students to develop and practice life skills.
Therapeutically intense and carefully supervised, students learn who they really are as they work side by side with therapists and staff who model, motivate and mentor.
