Turn-About Ranch is a wilderness therapy and residential treatment facility located in Escalante, Utah. We have been in business for 25 years working with at-risk adolescents and stand behind the work that we do with a guarantee. If a student spirals backward within the first year they are home, they can return for a FREE month of treatment. We believe in helping students recognize and develop values such as hard work, integrity, responsibility, accountability, gratitude, and respect for self and others. While in the program students address issues such as substance abuse, disrespect of authority, depression, anxiety and replace them with anger management and communication skills. We are a real working cattle ranch. The Ranch is used to teach work ethics and life skills. The work on the ranch is meaningful; fostering self-esteem and purpose while giving students a hope for their future. Students participate in local community service. They also are met where they are emotionally and spiritually. We believe in the importance of parent involvement and expect parents to participate in weekly calls and family therapy. We have a robust parent program that involves visiting your child mid program and being deeply involved in the therapeutic process. We also work closely with home professionals to ensure returning home is a success, since more than half our students return home.
