FALCON RIDGE RANCH
Karen Slack, Admissions
Falcon Ridge Ranch is a state licensed, residential treatment program for young women ages 12 through 17, who may be experiencing problems within the family, including communication, running away, stealing or who are physically aggressive. Students may also experience poor school performance or failing grades, have substance abuse problems, poor self-esteem and/ or may be lacking social skills.
Students receive individual, group, equine assisted and recreational therapy, as well as substance abuse treatment and family counseling. Academics are fully accredited and school is in session year round. Students learn "life skills" in many classes including CPR and First aid training, community service, money management, sewing, nutrition and basic cooking. The young women at Falcon Ridge participate in daily chores and are responsible for learning and taking care of the ranch animals.
Outdoor enjoyment at the ranch includes swimming, soccer, dodge ball, volleyball and basketball, as well as wilderness experiences at Zion National Park.
