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.

"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!!!"

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

"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."
