Safety FAQ’s

What are your safety practices?

We consider safety to be our number one priority. For a full list of our comprehensive safety protocols, please click here. ( FIX LINK LATER )

What level of supervision will my child receive?

The level of supervision that your child will receive will be directly related to his or her behavioral issues as required by applicable laws and regulations.

What are the qualifications of the staff caring for my child?

We ensure that all of our staff members are fully qualified before joining our team, and to do so we conduct thorough background checks as well as provide continual training. We also ensure that we have at least one staff member who is First Aid and CPR certified available to your child 24/7.

What happens if there is an emergency?

We have established best practices and risk management procedures that include emergency preparedness training and response, which our staff can utilize in the event of an emergency. Should a situation such as a natural disaster arise, a member of our team will notify you immediately. Because your child’s safety is our top priority, we will do everything in our power to keep them out of harm’s way.

May I speak with another parent who sent their child to Turn-About?

Of course! We encourage parents to communicate with one another, especially as it often helps ease the worry that comes with sending a child away for a long period of time. By either contacting us directly or visiting our Parent References page, we can provide you with the contact information needed to make connections.

What is your success rate?

We base our success on a variety of different factors, including both you and your child’s participation and willingness to make positive changes throughout the therapeutic process. To learn more about our statistical success, please visit our Outcomes page.


"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."

"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."

"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!!!"

"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."
