Healing for your struggling teenage son is within reach.

"We sent our son to Arivaca hoping

for a miracle, and we received one"

Our Equine therapy program is more than a pony ride or a petting zoo.

We are the only behavioral therapy program that teaches struggling teenage boys

to build relationships of trust with untrained horses.

This facilitates true self-discovery and character building experiences.

We are a licensed residential treatment facility and therapeutic boarding school for teenage boys aged 13-17. We specialize in the treatment of a range of mental and behavioral health challenges. Some Include:

  • Reactive Attachment Disorder

  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder

  • Substance Abuse

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • General Rebellion

  • Anxiety & Depression

  • Lack of Motivation & Low Self-Esteem

Our Therapeutic Approach

Your son will have a highly specialized team of behavioral health professionals oversee his healing journey with us.

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."

Special Education Consultant

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."

Parent of Alumnus

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."
