Treatment Program for Troubled Teens
Discovery Ranch will not rescue your son from difficult life experiences. We will help him learn how to deal with them. At the Discovery Ranch treatment program for troubled teens, your son will have the benefits of intensive therapy combined with powerfully effective experiential learning activities. He will also learn the tools he needs to recognize and regulate his emotions so that he can control his behavior. Moreover, once your son masters these tools, the positive changes in his behavior will last a lifetime.
The Clinical Services at Discovery Ranch consist of one of the most clinically experienced therapeutic teams among treatment programs for trouble teens. Our certified clinicians possess a Master’s or Doctorate degree. In addition to education, our clinical staff have the experience needed to help your son. Our clinicians are all specialized in working with troubled youth. On average, therapists work with six students. This low caseload means that your son’s therapist will be able to focus on your son’s needs. As a result, you can be confident your son is receiving all the care he requires.
The Discovery Ranch treatment model is built on a foundation of experiential therapy designed to build strong relationships. Therapists, mentors, teachers and staff will work side by side with your son every day. At Discovery Ranch, therapy occurs in the moment, not just in the office. Whether caring for bottle-fed calves, working with horses or engaging in sand therapy, your son will engage in therapeutic learning virtually all day long. Because your son will have many new and interesting experiences, he will be more open to the therapeutic process. He will hardly realize therapy is taking place. This experienced-based model of therapy has proven highly effective with out of control teens.
Your son will be able to learn and grow at our 20+ acre campus located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. The residential services at Discovery Ranch are second to none. At our troubled teen treatment program, your son will have the resources he needs to make a meaningful change in his life. These resources include our highly trained staff, indoor and outdoor facilities for equine and ranch therapy, and sports facilities. Your son will be in the perfect environment to develop and grow.
Furthermore, your son will never just fill time at Discovery Ranch. Everything he does will have a therapeutic purpose. In addition, he will feel success as he participates in residential activities and community service projects. Through these experiences, your son will develop his identity and improve his self-esteem. Consequently, he will build self-confidence to overcome life’s challenges and experience success.
Your participation in your son’s recovery is vital, and Discovery Ranch knows it. Accordingly, Parental participation is included in your son’s recovery by design. This is a unique feature of our treatment program for out of control teenagers. During weekly family therapy, visits, and parent’s day, you will be involved in your son’s recovery process. In addition, you will be able to monitor your son’s recovery using our confidential online parent’s portal.
