Welcome to Discovery Ranch for Girls! Top Residential Treatment Center for Girls.

Discovery Ranch for Girls is a safe and effective alternative to boarding school or scared straight programs, specializing in experiential therapy.

We provide therapy for troubled teens ages 13-17 on a 60-acre campus that’s just ten minutes from Cedar City, Utah. Discovery Ranch for Girls 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 for Girls, we have provided help for teenage girls and their families for almost a decade. We understand the right combination of program and people can change a troubled girl’s life.

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 suffer as troubled girls turn away from the people and activities they once enjoyed. 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 our home for troubled girls, your daughter will learn to become self-aware. She’ll recognize her true identity, not just hide behind an image. Your daughter will also learn to recognize and regulate her emotions. She’ll understand what safe, healthy relationships look like and why she is deserving of them. She’ll become more self-confident as she takes responsibility for her choices.

These changes occur as girls work 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.

We are a school for troubled teenage girls, so our girls receive an education alongside their therapy. 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 experience a therapeutic one.


Data-driven decision making is part of our culture.
Students at our ranches for troubled youth complete clinical surveys every month to track and plan their treatment. We also regularly ask parents and students to rate the Ranch and give us feedback. These surveys are reviewed by our entire treatment team to help make treatment decisions and to ensure that we are doing everything we can help your daughter get better. In addition to student surveys, we use patented assessments and research tools to track progress and provide feedback. Discovery Ranch for Girls is a top choice for parents worldwide and many would agree that this is the best place to find help for troubled teenagers. Want to see some of our impressive numbers?
