This is the most self-regulated group of boys I have ever seen, not just in a therapeutic environment, but in any other place that boys congregate.… I have never seen better peer-based self-regulation."

The program doesn't change your son, it gives you back your son. It lets him be the great person he was (is!) in spite of recent troubles... this is a place that works with the whole family to improve relationships."

Being at Arivaca Ranch has been a GREAT experience. I have learned how to handle my emotions. My parents and I have built a great relationship and I know it would not have been possible unless I would have come here."
