Turn-About Ranch is a residential program for adolescents between the ages of 13 to 17 who are struggling with a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. The year-round program runs in an actual working ranch located in Escalante, Utah.
Turn-About Ranch addresses diagnoses and behaviors such as depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, substance abuse, anxiety, low self esteem and bipolar disorder. The program offers comprehensive therapeutic services for students both on individual and group basis. A team of trained and experienced professionals conduct therapy sessions and offer individual assistance to students. The scenic location and ranch environment play an active role in the course of therapeutic program.
The students play active roles in the running of a real ranch by performing chores. It allows students to learn the importance of responsibility, teamwork, cooperation, time, and respect for life. The ranch also features a functioning high school and middle school, both of which are fully accredited through the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools.
Turn-About Ranch offers outdoor activities such as horseback rides, visits to nearby historic sites, and exploring fossil sites of dinosaurs. The main emphasis of the program is on real-life practical knowledge and skills for a positive life-changing transformation.
