Anxiety disorder treatment brings many benefits to both teens and their families. These benefits include:

Re-engage in Daily Life

Anxiety can interfere with daily life, making it difficult to participate in activities and routines that were once enjoyable. Treatment can help teens regain their ability to engage in daily life, enjoy simple pleasures, and take part in fulfilling experiences.

Heal Meaningful Relationships

Anxiety can cause strain on relationships, both within the family and outside of it. Through treatment, teens work on healing and strengthening their relationships, allowing them to build deeper connections and find support from loved ones.

Develop Healthy Coping Skills

Treatment can provide teens with the tools and techniques they need to manage their anxiety effectively. They will learn healthy coping mechanisms that can be used in daily life to help them regulate their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

Teens Get the Support Needed to Take Control of Their Anxiety

Anxiety can be overwhelming and isolating, but treatment can provide a supportive environment where teens can connect with others who are going through similar experiences. This support can help teens feel empowered and motivated to take control of their anxiety.

With therapeutic interventions and connections with others facing similar challenges, your teen will have the resources and support to take control of their anxiety and live their best life. Don't let prolonged and intense anxiety prevent your teen from participating in daily routines, enjoying simple pleasures, and forming meaningful relationships.

Why Choose Discovery Ranch South?

Restoring Choice

When anxiety rules our lives, we feel our choices are limited and out of reach

Teenage anxiety can be overwhelming, eroding their ability to make healthy choices and leaving them feeling trapped and disconnected from their loved ones. Like all teenagers, your child deserves the chance to explore their own interests and make choices that align with their unique identity, free from the limitations of anxiety.

Rediscover your teen's boundless potential and empower your family to take back control of its future, free from anxiety. Take charge of your teen's anxiety treatment by focusing on what you can control and finding a treatment approach that blends clinical sophistication with time-tested values and practices.

Through Nurturing Relationships...

Relationships are the foundation of our most meaningful experiences. Whether it's a family member, friend, or mentor, the people we care about shape our lives in profound ways.

At Discovery Ranch South we view relationships—with us, with you, with other family members and with peers—as the most fundamental agents of change in your teen’s life. We know that no other aspect of their care is as powerful in shaping their future success as the connections they make while recovering from anxiety.

...And Challenging Experiences...

“Experiential” can have a variety of meanings in the world of anxiety treatment. At Discovery Ranch South, experiential treatment is not just an activity we go and do; it’s who we are. It is the bedrock of our approach.

Learning comes from doing. Therapy can be a powerful tool for developing insights and building coping skills, but by itself is not enough. Our experiential program challenges anxious teens to practice what they've learned in a supportive, real-world setting.

Every part of the “Discovery Ranch Experience”—whether feeding a calf, traveling to the local theater and arts festival, or rappelling with staff and peers—is selected and designed to enhance your teen’s therapeutic progress and “turn experience into understanding.”

This place was wonderful for our daughter, who was suffering from severe depression and anxiety. She loved bonding with the animals and the other girls in the program. The staff was very caring and top-notch. Thanks to their teachings, our daughter is a much better communicator and is better equipped to cope with whatever life throws her way.

Discovery Ranch was amazing for our 16-year-old daughter. She struggled with severe anxiety, OCD, depression and avoidance. She had stopped going to school despite being incredibly smart. She had essentially stopped doing anything, preferring to isolate in her room. She came out a different person - or I should say, the girl we had not seen for a long time. We would highly recommend DRG to anybody whose daughter is struggling. It is a well-run, safe, amazing program.

DRS saved our daughter's life. Sounds dramatic, right? Maybe so but it's absolutely the truth and we've heard our daughter say the same thing countless times. The programs are astonishingly diverse and effective. Bovine, equine, rec., performing arts, group, RO-DBT, brain spotting and traditional talk therapy all focus on your daughter's healing and recovery. I can't speak to everyone's experience but I can speak to ours: DRG is filled with talented, loving, caring professionals. Amazing, simply amazing. Our family has hope again and I could not be more thankful. My succinct definition of DRS is this: DRS is an oasis of love and healing in the high desert of southern Utah. Writing this review is my way of paying forward my thanks for what DRG has done for our daughter and our family. I wish you luck. Don't give up. Call DRS.

Our daughter attended DRG and we could not have been more proud of her growth during her time there and after. The Ranch is beautiful and the work with the animals was so important to her. The staff and her therapist were absolutely wonderful. Since returning home, she has completed high school early and just completed her cosmetology program. Our relationships in the family are extremely strong as a result of everyone's openness and willingness to put in the work. She is so excited to begin her career and we are excited to see where she takes it. We certainly would not be at this point if it were not for her hard work and the support of those at the Ranch.
