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.
