Discovery Ranch For Girls is a safe and effective alternative to boarding school or scared straight programs, specializing in Experiential Therapy.

Discovery Ranch treats girls ages 13-17 on a spectacular 60 Acre campus just ten minutes from Cedar City, Utah. Discovery Ranch is the perfect therapeutic choice for girls who may be transitioning from wilderness programs or who may require a more intensive residential therapy experience. At Discovery Ranch, we have been helping girls and their families for almost a decade. We understand the right combination of program and people can change a troubled girl’s life.

Please explore our website or call an admissions counselor today!


At the ranch, our residential therapy program helps girls who struggle with a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. These problems have typically disrupted family life. School performance may also have suffered as troubled girls begin to turn away from the people and activities that once brought them happiness. They often appear to be spiraling downward with no way of stopping the free-fall.

Girls at Discovery Ranch have issues that may include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood Disorders
  • Low self-esteem
  • Adoption or Attachment issues
  • Self harm
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Body image
  • Trauma
  • Grief and Loss
  • Abuse
  • ADHD / Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
  • Substance Abuse and other Addictions
  • Eating disorders
  • Learning Disorders
  • Opposition defiance
  • Non Verbal Learning Disability
  • Dual diagnosis


Take the assessment here for a closer evaluation of your daughter’s problems. This confidential assessment is designed to help you determine whether or not professional help might be beneficial for your child. If you like, you can discuss your daughter’s unique problems with an admissions counselor.


Discovery Ranch for girls is unlike any other therapeutic setting. At Discovery Ranch, your daughter will learn to become self-aware. She’ll recognize her true identity, not just hide behind an image. She’ll also learn to recognize and regulate her emotions. She’ll understand what safe, healthy relationships look like and why she is deserving of them. And she’ll become more self-confident as she takes responsibility for her choices.

These changes begin to occur as girls work side by side with mentors and therapists in a therapy model that focuses on relationships. At Discovery Ranch, we like to say that we model, mentor and motivate our students. Girls are inspired to change because they see their therapists and mentors as people who genuinely care about them, people they look up to and want to emulate.

Licensed therapists work with licensed teachers and mentors to create a therapy setting that reaches across residential, academic, and clinical activities. This kind of collaboration makes every Ranch experience a therapeutic one.
