Therapist Recommendations

At Turn-About Ranch, we understand the critical role that therapy plays when it comes to helping troubled teens get back on track. Over the last 30 years, we have worked hard to establish strong relationships with therapists throughout the country. These relationships have been fostered as therapists have come to trust our program and see results.

Therapists Recommend Turn-About Ranch

Before therapists recommend that parents “send her to the ranch” and seek extensive treatment, they will usually evaluate and work with the teen on their issues for quite some time. Many therapists will consult with us personally to evaluate whether their at-risk teen client would be a good fit for our program before making their recommendation. Therapists often refer their clients to us, because they believe in our philosophy and trust that it will benefit their client.

Why Professionals Refer Us

Therapists on Location

Our treatment facility has onsite therapists that work with our students in individual and group therapy settings. However, we also frequently have offsite therapists visit Turn-About Ranch to help us improve our processes and to further build our relationships with them. We value these relationships and the input that these professionals are able to bring to the table.

After Care Recommendations

We believe in our program and have seen the impact that it has had on the teens who have come here. One good reason for our high success rate is because our commitment to helping troubled teens does not end at graduation. In fact, we encourage students to continue their treatment once they leave our ranch and return home. Before leaving, we help our students find qualified therapists who are up to the task of continuing their treatment and expanding on the foundation of real values and real change that our program instilled in them.

My son was struggling and TAR helped him and gave him life skills. He is home now and doing amazing! Not to say there are always bumps in the road, but this facility is one that works.

At TAR, doing real work, solving real problems daily was the game-changer... My son has learned how to express his feelings more frequently. He listens more carefully and expects to be listened to. He has come to understand the benefits and value of hard work... We have a long way to go. But we have more positives and more potential to move forward on a positive trajectory than we have had in many years... I firmly believe none of his would have happened without TAR.

We sent our son to Turn-About and I can't say enough good things about this program. The first time I spoke with them they actually gave me some things that they thought I could do at home to possibly work through our issues and not have to use the program! I was immediately impressed that they were concerned with my son and not just selling an enrollment. My son learned so much there and loved all of the staff members. They put their hearts and souls into helping the kids that are there... They gave us a ton of resources to make sure we keep the momentum and have a smooth transition back to home life... It was life changing for everyone of my family members that were involved.

This place has made all the difference, and saved our 16 year old daughter’s life. Previous counseling, hospitalization, and medications did not work, and we were about to give up on her. She’s come out of this program strong, honest, and positive with herself, and future. The people employed at the ranch are caring, genuine, and simply put, one of a kind. Thank you, for giving us our daughter back.

My 14 year old daughter graduated from Turn-About Ranch about 2 months ago and is the best she has ever been... I am beyond grateful that her journey led her to the people who are so gracious, patient, and brutally honest... This is where the most effective therapy took place for her… where she learned to turn suggested tools/ideas/concepts into action and have her eyes opened to new better ways of shaping her perspective, relationships, communication, and living life by higher morals and values...  this [program] does it right!  ...My daughter loves them, misses them and wants to visit on her one year anniversary… but she doesn’t want to return as a resident either… it’s really brilliant!
