Overview of Discovery Ranch For Girls
Any parent of a teen or preteen knows the challenges parents face today. These challenges are compounded when parents care for a teen who struggles with ADHD, adoption issues, depression, an eating disorder, oppositional defiance, self-harm, or suicidal ideation.
This article will describe how the relationship-based treatment provided at Discovery Ranch for Girls can be instrumental in providing teens with the support they need to transform their lives.
The integrated approach to care that can be found at the ranch, as described by the CARE model, allows clinicians, teachers, and other staff members to be aware of and address each student's needs.
Parents are also a vital part of the treatment process. Along with the clinical, academic, residential, and experiential staff members, they are a part of their daughter's treatment team. They play a vital role in guiding their daughter toward healing.
Most teens who come to a residential treatment center are initially unwilling to engage in the treatment process. Discovery Ranch for Girls helps students to overcome their initial reluctance by forging solid relationships.
Therapists, teachers, teacher's aides, and mentors all work together to create lasting bonds with students. These relationships become the open doors through which healing can enter.
Our CARE Model
The experiential program at Discovery Ranch for Girls allows students to take the therapeutic experiences they have outside the classroom. These experiences are tied to memorable events, such as ropes courses or equine therapy. The progress that students make is all the more memorable for being tied to real-life experiences.
As a parent, you are always a vital part of the treatment process. You will be part of your teen's treatment team. Together with the other members of the Treatment Team, you will help guide your daughter through the healing process.
You will also receive assistance yourself. During weekly virtual therapy sessions, you will learn how to connect with your teen in new, healthier ways.
In addition, you will have the opportunity to engage with parents of teens who are facing similar challenges. During Parents Days, you can meet with parents of teens who have faced similar challenges and learn from content experts and each other.
Discovery Ranch for Girls has created an environment where teens are fully immersed in a healing environment. While at the ranch, they learn how to build healthy relationships. These relationship-building skills can also be applied to healing their relationships with their family.
Because the program is fully integrated with Clinical, Academic, Residential, and Experinital departments working together, students receive a single, clear message about their healing journey and the next steps they need to move forward.
Parents are always an indispensable part of the healing journey. They help to guide their daughters' journey. Also, while students are taking part in their healing process, parents have the opportunity to heal and develop new skills as well.
