Get Your Son The Support He Needs

We Have Helped Struggling Teens To Learn The Skills They Needed To Heal, Thrive, And Reunite With Their Families.

Internationally-recognized Residential Treatment Center for Teen Boys Ages 13-18 Located in Utah

Top Residential Treatment Center For Teens

Discovery Ranch combines the power of traditional and experiential therapies to create a clinically sophisticated, relationship-based residential treatment center for boys ages 13-18.  Research shows this is the best approach to help your son and family heal mentally, physically, and emotionally.   Every part of Discovery Ranch, from the amazing campus to the nationally accredited Academic Program, helps to promote growth and healing.

While enrolled at Discovery Ranch, your son will experience a safe and structured environment.  He will have opportunities for growth through our experiential campus, by developing new skills and interests. He will take part in equine therapy and horsemanship programs and will have the responsibility of caring for a rescued baby calf.  These experiences will teach your son values like Responsibility, Grit, Honesty, Respect, Courage, Kindness, and Accountability.

Your son will experience the value of hard work through daily chores and responsibilities.  He will be expected to maintain a healthy lifestyle which includes daily exercise and well-balanced meals.

Throughout your son’s experience at Discovery Ranch he will have the support of caring, educated, experienced professionals.


More than a Ranch

Yes, we have an amazing ranch!!  In addition, your son will experience many opportunities to explore Utah.

While at Discovery Ranch, your son will participate in a variety of outdoor activities.  This will provide him with the experience of a lifetime because Utah has a natural landscape that is second to none.  The ranch has the best of both worlds: a small-town atmosphere with access to world-class skiing, outdoor activities, surrounded by beautiful mountains, and close to two major universities and hospitals.  

In addition to taking part in the equine therapy and horsemanship programs, he will have access to the fully-equipped music studio. He can participate in various sports teams, such as basketball, flag football, wrestling, and cross-country running. As part of the therapeutic learning process, all boys participate in weekly ropes activities that build character and help develop lifelong skills.

Residential Treatment is an Intensive Healing Experience

The entire facility is designed to create a rich therapeutic and healing environment.

Individual, family, and group therapy all take place within a residential treatment setting.  In this experiential, safe, and supportive environment, your son will confront his personal challenges with the goal of healing and increasing his capacity which builds his self-confidence and self-esteem.

You can be assured that your son will not confront these challenges alone.  He will have the support of well-trained and experienced clinical, academic, residential, and experiential staff members.

Your son will have the opportunity to build the strength and resilience he needs to thrive at home.


Healing Teens and Families

Discovery Ranch strives to heal your family as a whole.  You and your son will work to rebuild your relationship with weekly family therapy, family visits, and Parent Day Seminars.   You will also be able to observe your son’s progress through our secure, password-protected parent portal.  For many parents, this focus on parental participation is the reason they choose our program.
