465. Falcon Ridge Ranch

This treatment facility located outside Virgin in Utah accepts out of state teenagers. It was founded in 2003. Imagine having to live thousand of miles from your friends and family. Imagine to live without getting visits from your parents just they just happen not to support the concept or religion of the place.

One teenager – now a woman – was the center of some newspaper articles. Once released she guided by her past took up a line of business which made the state trouble her, but were her other options when she was robbed of so much? It is safe to say that it could not be fun to be at this ranch as a teenager if you were in the same kind of situation.


Update 2021

An employee were arrested charged with four counts of sexual battery and four counts of distributing harmful material to minors. The facility is also mentioned in an article where students report that they claims of abuse were ignored.

    this makes no sense. Not very articulate at all. is it a critical or supportive?

    I came here looking for places in Germany which certainly should be on this list.

    The organization behind this blog is a humanitarian organization who records institutional abuse thanks to Egedal municipality in Denmark, which charged some poor parents for treatment of their children in a country where you pay more than 50 percent of your income. Denmark – you think treatment are free but that is not the case when we are talking depression because Denmark wants to be the happiest country in the world and that is done by fines to families with members suffering from this illness so they don’t seek treatment and worsen the statistics. Instead many commits suicide.

    I have been following the organization for some time and they have closed down places all over the world and works closely with American organizations like HEAL-online. Lives have been spared. I don’t know this ranch but I guess that someone in the states have interviewed former students and found some who was not happy about their stay.
