We have a mind, body, spirit approach. Our program provides:

• Intensive Outpatient Therapy from our Outside Provider, Crossroads Center of Frederick
• Individualized Treatment Plans
• Oversight of Schooling
• Life Skill Classes
• Recreational & Leisure Activities
• Team Building Activities
• Nutritional Classes
• 12 Step Program
• Mentoring Program
• Spiritual Program
• Group, Individual and Family Therapy
The Youth Ranch is located on 204 beautiful, rural acres in Frederick County, Maryland. We have a top-notch facility and 41 years of experience working with adolescents. Our model is new to the State of Maryland – combining a residential program with Intensive Outpatient Therapy – thus giving our clients 1 – 3 months longer to receive therapy before having to return to their homes. Our facility is private pay for the residential portion with insurance covering the Intensive Outpatient Therapy.
