Residential Treatment for Adolescent Teens- Discovery Ranch for Girls

Just returned from a trip to Utah where I was able to see many programs for adolescents and young adults who are experiencing a variety of challenges. One such program is called Discovery Ranch for Girls.

Discovery Ranch for Girls is a residential treatment center for troubled teen girls ages 13-18. Their unique single gender girls program helps teens who struggle with a variety of emotional, behavioral, and psychiatric issues such as:



Mood Disorder

Low self esteem

Self harm

Suicidal ideation

Grief and loss



Non verbal learning differences

Adoption/attachment issues

Through a combination of experiential and traditional therapies, the staff models, motivates and mentors. Teens gain self-esteem as they learn there is strength in the struggle.

Highlights are:

• 60-acre campus

• Professional Chef and Culinary staff

• Unique residential cabins, a feel of home and group with paved walking paths

• More professional staff to student time than other leading programs

• Located in the heart of Southern Utah = close to high adventure

• Accredited Academics

• Full-time Licensed Clinical Professionals

• Research / Outcomes driven therapy and program effectiveness studies

• On-campus top-rated equine program and calf program

• Music and Drama program

If you are currently working with a teen who you feel may benefit by enrolling at Discovery Ranch for Girls, contact Sarah Yardley in admissions at (855) 667-9388. You can also refer your family directly to me, Oakes Hunnewell. I would be happy to answer any questions they may have about this or any other program for their daughter. I can be reached by email at or by phone at 720-388-9616.

Until you stop working with Mormon child abusers like Sunrise and Evoke we will encourage people to boycott your business.

We will continue to fight the good fight against Mormon RTCs and Wilderness programs. People with such bizarre, bigoted, and disproven beliefs shouldn’t be “helping” children.

Shame on you!
