"In a time of turmoil with our child and researching a facility, hands down we couldn’t have found a better place. A big part of our decision was made by talking to past parents."

- Hopeful in Nebraska, May 2021

"TAR was wonderful for helping my daughter. Staff is great to the kids and she is getting the help she needs. While visiting at mid term I was very pleased with ranch staff was so great. And my daughter was so excited to show us around and meet everyone that works there. I got nothing but positive feedback from my daughter. Thank you turnabout ranch."

- Rene Stepanian

"Absolutely recommend this program without a doubt. I was a frustrated mother at a breaking with a struggling teenager that hit rock bottom. Without this program in our life, I don't know if I would have ever seen his smiling face again. I can't say enough about the staff, counseling and program itself. Don't listen to the negativity with reviews, I didn't. It was a tough decision but thank God every day I trusted my gut and the program. I have my son back and yes it's a tough structured program but all in a good way, the way it needs to be. He needed a drastic measure and TAR exceeded my expectations. Worth every penny. Thank you!!!"

"TAR saved my daughter's life ~ She is now happy, very successful and I owe so much of that to them!"

- Wendy Werner

"My daughter was at Turn About Ranch. This program not only saved her life but also United us as a family. It was the most humbling experience of my life and leaving her was the hardest thing I ever had to do. Getting her back - as she was before she got into trouble - was the most rewarding and amazing thing. It’s the end result that makes the process worth while. The staff was so wonderful. They made this experience easier to go through. Michelle and Lorie keep me posted on my daughters initial days then the weekly posting of her progress gave me strength. The staff made such an impression on my daughter that she wants to continue a relationship with them. Her therapist called weekly and never held back on setting her father and I straight. This program is not only for our children but for the entire family. Don’t hesitate! This program will work if all efforts are made by both the parents and child. Totally worth it. My daughter is now home and in private school and putting her life back together day by day. It’s a blessing to know Turn About Ranch is still there if we need them. Very happy mom in San Diego."
