Turn-About Ranch COVID 19 Admissions and Visitation Policy

Turn-About Ranch continues to be committed to the health and well-being of our students and co-workers during the current COVID-19 outbreak. Turn-About Ranch will remain open during this event to continue to help families on their journeys of growth and change.

As more and more children are out of school and community events are postponed, parents have even less resources to assist them with children in crisis. During this unprecedented event, our mission is even more critical in giving relief to families that do not know where else to turn. Please know that Turn-About Ranch is continuing to admit students with enhanced safety precautions in place.

In order to allow us to continue to assist as many families as possible, admissions will continue with enhanced screening procedures in accordance with CDC and Utah State Health Department protocols. We are diligently staying informed on the latest news and recommendations and will continue to make adjustments as necessary.

Currently, all new admissions and visitors are subject to stringent precautions, including, but not limited to:

  • All potential new admits must be prescreened for the following risk factors:
    • Travel outside the US or to high risk areas within the US in the last 21 days.
    • Fever, persistent cough, breathing difficulties, headaches, and runny noses.
  • Two weeks of self-quarantine with no symptoms for all residents of the home, including those who will transport.
  • Complete a full screening via phone and then again upon arrival at main office.
  • Our intake campus, Roundy, will effectively act as a second quarantine where students will remain until they complete the first two levels of their program before interacting with the rest of the students.
  • Parents visiting for drop-off and/or graduation must adhere to the same screening guidelines.
  • Parent trainings and visits at mid-term and graduation will take place in a virtual format until April 23, 2020, or until CDC guidelines change.

Each case is unique and will be assessed accordingly. Turn-About Ranch will continue to follow and adjust its Admissions and Visitation Policies in accordance with best practices. Additional information is available through your Admissions representative. Please call 800-842-1165 with questions or to discuss specific details of your circumstance.

Thank you for your trust and the opportunity to serve your child and family. We also appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we strive to maintain a safe environment for our current and future students. Please feel free to reply with any questions or suggestions as we work together to make the most of a difficult time.

"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."
