Program Description

 Discovery Ranch is a residential treatment center located on a 20 acre ranch near Provo, Utah. Discovery’s open campus is designed for experiential therapy in residential living, academics, and ranch responsibilities. Our treatment protocol is founded on helping students develop self esteem through skill mastery. Discovery Ranch serves students ages 13-18 who struggle with a variety of emotional and behavioral issues such as ADHD, oppositional defiance, depression, adoption, eating disorders, substance abuse, etc.

Relationships underscore our competency based model. Students, mentors and therapists participate together in equine activities, caring for newborn calves, high and low ropes courses, community service projects, and academics.

The Ranch offers one of the most veteran therapeutic teams in the industry. All therapists are licensed Master’s and Ph.D. level practitioners with an average of 19 years experience each working with adolescents. Clinically intensive, each student receives individual, group and family therapy sessions each week. Real time therapeutic intervention through relationship based interaction is the heart of our program.

 Discovery specializes in student centered academics. Students and parents work with teachers and therapists to develop a customized education plan with specific learning goals.  Then, therapeutics and academics work in tandem to achieve a competency based progression. Coursework is fully accredited by the State of Utah and taught by licensed educators. Academics are complimented by remedial assistance, experiential learning activities and small learning communities. Special education and IEP/504 assistance is also available.
