Abuse Treatment Facility for Adolescents in Frederick

The Youth Ranch, formerly the Maryland Sheriffs’ Youth Ranch, a nonprofit in Frederick, Maryland, opened our new facility on June 1, 2016. We are a Residential Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Facility for Adolescents ages 12-17. In the State of Maryland, there are very few facilities available to help adolescents with substance abuse issues.

We have a mind, body, spirit approach. Our program provides:
• 24 Hour Supervision, Residential Stay
• 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.
