How We Treat Teenage Behavioral Addiction
As a parent, finding the right treatment center for your teenager with behavioral addiction can be an overwhelming experience. You want to ensure that your child is receiving the best possible care, in a supportive and nurturing environment that will help them overcome their challenges and move towards a brighter future. That's why Discovery Ranch South is the ideal choice for your teenager's behavioral addiction treatment.
Our approach to treating teenage behavioral addiction includes:
Our Addiction Behavior Program is adapted from Seeking Safety, an evidence-based model of treatment for individuals impacted by substance abuse and traumatic experiences. The main principles include safety, treating substance abuse and trauma, focusing on positive ideals, and providing themes from multiple perspectives (cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal). Our group meets each girl where they are. We help girls see how their issues impact their interpersonal interactions. We give our girls the tools to address substance abuse and trauma.
Due to its balance of structure and flexibility, Seeking Safety integrates seamlessly into each girl’s individualized treatment plans. Each treatment topic gives girls opportunities to discuss, learn, and refine their interpersonal skills in a group setting. Each session comes with a worksheet outlining the week’s concept that our girls can always refer back to. Because safety is the cornerstone of this program, we create a warm, supportive environment to discuss the complexities surrounding the difficulties in substance abuse, trauma, and addictive behaviors.
12 Step Education
The 12 Steps Group is adapted from the 12 Steps Program, which is a nationally recognized program built on twelve guiding principles to help individuals struggling with substance abuse and addiction move toward recovery. This approach has been modified to address a variety of issues related to substance abuse and dependency issues, including behavioral addictions. At Discovery Ranch South, your daughter can share her difficult experiences and find support with peers. Guided by a professional with experience in the 12 Steps modality, we help our students as they recover.
Our team of skilled therapists prioritizes developing close therapeutic relationships with your child to ensure that they feel safe enough for meaningful and lasting change to take place.
We provide individual addictive behavior counseling from our licensed addictions counselor. This counselor provides education and individualized support to help teens address their addictive behaviors.
Using evidence-based therapies, a trained professional will aid your child in recognizing and challenging negative and irrational thoughts and behaviors that may have arisen from their behavioral addiction. We will guide your teenager as they learn effective coping mechanisms to handle situations that could potentially trigger their addictive behaviors.
At Discovery Ranch South, our ultimate goal is to empower your teenager to overcome their behavioral addiction challenges and live a fulfilling life. We understand the impact that behavioral addiction can have on your child's life, and we are here to help them work through it in a safe and supportive environment.

Why Choose Discovery Ranch South for Your Teen’s Behavioral Addiction Treatment?
When behavioral addiction rules a teen's life, they can feel their choices are limited and out of reach.
Teenagers struggling with a behavioral addiction feel overwhelmed, struggle to make healthy choices, and often 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 addiction.
Rediscover your teenager's boundless potential and empower your family to take back control of its future, free from addiction. Take charge of your teen's behavioral addiction 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 managing their addiction.
...And Challenging Experiences...
"Experiential" can have a variety of meanings in the world of addiction 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, it's not enough. Our experiential program challenges teens with behavioral addiction to practice what they've learned in a supportive, real-world setting.
Every part of the "Discovery Ranch Experience" - whether caring for animals, engaging in outdoor adventures, or participating in expressive arts - is selected and designed to enhance your child's therapeutic progress and "turn experience into understanding."
...In a Healing Environment
Surrounded by the beautiful sandstone cliffs of southern Utah, we offer a healing environment that mirrors our surroundings, both expansive and embracing. Discovery Ranch South nestles comfortably into the surrounding desert and mountains, drawing on its quiet beauty, inherent strength, and enduring ability to inspire.

At Discovery Ranch South, we offer various opportunities for family participation, including weekly family therapy sessions, on-campus visits, and Parent Seminars. We prioritize the development of healthy, happy family relationships through fundamental communication, life, and social & emotional learning skills.
At Discovery Ranch South, your teenager will have the opportunity to thrive in a small, supportive community immersed in the beauty and adventure of southern Utah. From outdoor activities like hiking and horseback riding to attending local cultural events, there are countless opportunities for growth and exploration. With caring staff members and a focus on lasting change, Discovery Ranch South is the perfect place for your teenager to heal and flourish.
