A student’s treatment team includes clinicians, teachers and residential staff. Formal therapy is more traditional in scope but not in venue. Counseling sessions may occur in the therapist’s office or out walking or working on the ranch. Therapy includes weekly individual, family and group sessions which take roughly 20 hours each week.
A licensed psychiatrist is on staff and meets with students weekly. He assesses and adjusts medications as needed. Our psychiatrist is also available to discuss with students any other areas of concern.
Discovery Ranch’s single gender hybrid model has a very simple definition but is much more complex to operate than either the single gender or pure coed programs.
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.
