ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
The Program Director
Upon arrival at Resolution Ranch, your teen will be assessed by our program director. The Program Director will design and implement an individual plan of therapy suited to your teens needs. Throughout your teen's stay at Resolution Ranch, he will meet with the therapist on a regular basis as his progress is reassessed and updated constantly.
Counselors live with the residents and supervise them 24 hours a day. They are the first to respond when your teen behaves inappropriately. They act as immediate mentors and role models and will be your primary contact for your regular progress reports.
Our program utilizes the power of the teen's peer group to counter negative behaviors and reinforce positive behaviors. A "group" can be called at any time by any member of the community. Group therapy sessions allow feelings to be fully expressed in a structured environment. Teens offer feedback to help lift one another up and, in the process, strengthen their own commitment to recovery.
Away from the noise of the modern world, our natural setting is the perfect place to quiet our minds and witness the miracles around us. Your teen will receive instruction in horticulture, learning to garden and nurture growth in living things. We also utilize our 450 acre ranch for camping trips and wilderness adventures that will demonstrate the possibilities of teamwork and community.
The 12 Steps
Our modified 12-step program utilizes the strengths of the 12 steps of Narcotics Anonymous as they apply to teens. 12 Step programs have long offered a spiritual answer to those seeking help with the hardships of addiction.
The R.A.N.C.H. Experience
The R.A.N.C.H. experience is the level system through which residents must progress in order to graduate our program. It emphasizes 5 concepts for study during each level and each of these concepts requires an activity or response writing that is read and evaluated by a counselor. Each level is designed to increase your teen's powers of introspection and rational self-evaluation.
