There's No Such Thing as Overnight Cures When it Comes to Troubled Boys


AllPhotos There's No Such Thing as Overnight Cures When it Comes to Troubled BoysI’ve heard of places that take troubled boys, but am so unsure of what they do or what will happen to my son.  I want him to go to some place for help, if we can get him back to the way he used to be, but is that even possible? I wanted to fix him, but fixing implied he was broken. He was a happy, carefree boy that started running with the wrong crowd. Looking back, I know it didn’t happen overnight and I knew that the cure wouldn’t happen overnight either. I wonder how long it will take or, if it is possible to even find a “cure” at all. After researching several options, I knew we needed to send him to a good place. But, as his mother, it was hard to let him go especially since I wasn’t sure what kind of place he would be going to.

Ashcreek Ranch Academy uses a combination of evidence-based therapy, equine therapy and group counseling. They embrace the method of Positive Peer Culture to treat struggling boys. If you have a troubled boy who needs help, call (435) 215-0500 for more information. 

If It Doesn’t Happen Overnight, How Long Does It Take?

As much as you want your son to be healed, and become again the boy you remember as quickly as possible. Each person is different. Our treatment however, offers a whole new alternative through our natural horsemanship methods.  The relationship between the boys and the horses requires trust, patience, and a unique connection. Our professionals, who have experience with a wide range of mental health issues have discovered activities involving horses can be an effective form of therapy with very high success rates. We can’t promise “overnight” success, but we can promise a lifetime of change. Your boy won’t be the same boy you remember, he’ll be better. We can transform him into the young man you always hoped for and we’ll let his potential shine through. For immediate help, call (435) 215-0500.
