All aspects of our program are integrated and designed to be therapeutic in purpose.
The Therapeutic Milieu created at Diamond Ranch facilitates the change process. Students are on a journey of emotional self-discovery and learning at all times throughout the program.
All of our Doctorate or Masters level therapists are professionally licensed with the State of Utah as Mental Health Professionals.
Therapists are required to meet continuing education and training requirements to maintain their licenses and level of expertise.
We have a full staff of experienced, caring, Licensed Mental Health professionals who oversee the treatment of students. Therapists conduct individual, family, and groups sessions with students.
Therapists oversee case managers who facilitate parent visits, psychoeducational groups, and other components of the program.
Students who enter the program with substance abuse issues receive individual and group therapeutic support. These students attend weekly 12 step meetings and work through an individualized chemical dependence program with their assigned therapist.
We offer Equine Therapy as an adjunct to traditional therapy. Our Certified Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Program allows students to interact with horses under the guidance of a Licensed, Certified, EAP therapist.
Through this process, students learn valuable life lessons about trust and relationships.
Students learn life skills on a daily basis using a hands-on approach.
Students participate in psychoeducational groups designed to create opportunities for personal growth and insight. Students learn to interact with others in a healthy, positive way.
Students participate in vocational education. Students research possible career choices and post high school educational opportunities.
Students also learn specific skills like: wood working, concrete work, auto maintenance and repair, farming, animal care, etc.
Diamond Ranch offers parent workshops to educate parents about the program and empower them with parenting skills.
For the parents of newly admitted students, these workshops are offered every other month. A parent seminar is offered twice a year where parents receive training and interact with their student in a therapeutic nature.
At the appropriate level in the program, monthly parent visits are encouraged to assist with improving relationships and preparing for the student?s return home.
A full- time Parent Support Coordinator is available to assist parents as needed throughout the program.
