Our Population – Individualized residential treatment experience
SMALL VS. BIG – Enjoy an individualized residential treatment experience at Discovery Ranch
The girls at Discovery Ranch for Girls(DRG) experience a tremendous amount of growth during the course of residential treatment. Over their stay the program will flex and grow as your daughter grows. DRG provides a unique luxury for a treatment setting by offering the benefits of individualized treatment while providing vast amounts of therapeutic opportunities on the DRG campus.
DRG is a 66 acre therapeutic haven to offer healing for your daughter. She will experience living in a home-like atmosphere while having the opportunity to take advantage the large campus and professional staff we have to offer. Her residence will entail a cottage with a small number of other girls and 24 hr. professional staff specifically assigned to with help support your daughter through her therapeutic journey. DRG will provide the individualized treatment experience while having access to all what DRG provides.
Often the girls that seek treatment at DRG have developed a pattern of over identifying with their diagnosis or their “issues.” Your daughter may identify with being depressed, anxious, or a cutter and has forgotten who she really is without the pathology. At Discovery Ranch we are going to move your daughter from seeing herself as a broken and damaged person to believing she is a strong and independent young woman. Treatment settings that exclusively address certain diagnosis or clinical issues often create a culture of connecting to pathology. The clinically heterogeneous environment provided by Discovery Ranch treats a diverse range of therapeutic issues contributing to a culturally sound therapeutic environment that is based on a healthy connection. In this environment your daughter is letting go of her unhealthy identity to identifying with others and herself based on her strengths and health. Girls that are being treated in a heterogeneous environment are challenged to address the core issues that contribute to their unhealthy behaviors and not just the symptoms. Addressing what is underneath the behavior will create long lasting change and transform your daughter into a strong and healthy young woman. Girls who have been hurting on the inside can begin to heal in an environment that will address the pain underneath and help move them in the direction of real lasting change.
