This residential therapeutic treatment program is for young women between the ages of 12 and 17 who may have experienced drug and alcohol abuse, runaway behavior, low self-esteem, ADD/ADHD, and may be impulsive, have negative peers and poor relationships with their families.
Eagle Valley Youth Ranch provides structured behavior modification along with individual and group counseling, academics, life skills training and agricultural care partnered with equine assisted psychology.
Located near Bryce Canyon, the girls have the opportunity for exploring and hiking the canyons of the Colorado Plateau and are introduced and taught by Native Americans, skills indigenous to this culture.
