Therapy Program for troubled girls
Our Therapy Program for troubled girls is designed to help students identify problem behaviors and build inner strength to overcome challenges. Effective communication skills are developed and positive coping strategies learned. Falcon Ridge Ranch uses a multi-therapeutic model. Specific treatment modalities include:
Group Therapy - This consists of a minimum of ten small group sessions weekly. These groups include substance abuse, problem solving, positive peer culture, emotional management, safe dates, and specialty groups designed for specific treatment needs. All group processes foster emotional growth in a safe and confidential setting.
Individual Therapy - is provided to each student with a minimum of one session weekly. Sessions help students gain insights into their individual behaviors and establishes a trusting relationship with their counselor. In this setting, students process issues too sensitive for them to share with a group.
Substance Abuse and Addiction Treatment - is specifically designed to address the intra-personal and family issues that fuel adolescent addiction. Recovery is facilitated through group therapy, AA/NA meetings, community meetings, and co-dependence groups that follow a twelve step format.
Family Therapy - is provided via weekly teleconference. Parents contribute to treatment as an integral part of the program. Falcon Ridge Ranch encourages families to visit during planned family weekends. Family and students meet with their primary counselor for therapy. Parents and children also participate in parent support groups, parent-teacher conferences, workshops, and graduation ceremonies.
