Program Description:

Diamond Ranch Academy (DRA) is a premier licensed Youth Residential Treatment Center, located on 200 acres in Utah’s beautiful color country. Our mantra is “Healing Families One Youth at a Time” and we are dedicated to creating life-long positive change in the lives of our students and their families. Typical diagnoses that are appropriate at Diamond Ranch Academy include, but are not limited to: Clinical Depression, Bi-Polar Disorder, ADHD, PTSD, ODD, Mood Disorders, Personality Disorders, mild cases of (Asperger, Reactive Attachment Disorder, PDD, and Autism), Eating Disorders, Sexual Abuse, Adoption Issues, Family Conflict, and Alcohol and Drug Abuse.

Diamond Ranch Academy has created a unique and sophisticated Therapeutic Milieu that uses a well refined “Token Economy” which integrates and reinforces individual accountability in all aspects of student life. Our token economy provides a therapeutic environment that shapes behavior without anger, without violence, and without coercion. Teens are quick to learn that when one makes good choices, good things happen. In a gentle, yet firm way, teens learn that in real life, there are always naturally-occurring rewards and consequences for their choices.

All students are provided with a Utah licensed Doctoral or Masters level therapist. Our therapists are creative in developing individual treatment plans which integrate all aspects of DRA’s Milieu. DRA offers Individual Therapy, Group Therapy, Family Therapy, and AA/NA groups. In addition, DRA offers eight parenting seminars yearly to help parents be better equipped when dealing with their student.


DRA’s accredited academic program is specifically designed to empower students by providing individual support from certified teachers in a traditional classroom environment. To ensure mastery of the learning process and the development of essential study skills, DRA utilizes a student-paced mastery curriculum. Mastery learning empowers students to develop the academic skills, foundation of knowledge, and confidence needed for success in the classroom. Special Education personnel assist with identifying students with learning disabilities and providing services of existing Individual Education Plans (IEP). In addition to core and other elective courses, a comprehensive Vocational Education program gives students the opportunity to explore career pathways and learn valuable occupational skills to support future career pursuits.

Competitive athletic teams and extra curricular clubs are an important part of DRA. Participation in such activities allows the student to improve individual talent and abilities while learning valuable lessons regarding teamwork, sportsmanship, respect, and humility. Athletic teams and extra curricular clubs include activities such as: Track and Field, Football, Basketball, Dance, Cheer, Guitar, Choir, Speech and Debate, Art, Fishing, and Small Animal Care.
