Ashcreek Ranch Academy Student Profile

Ashcreek-9-10-15 (36 of 93)

Ashcreek Ranch Academy, a ranch for troubled youth, provides services to adolescent boys 14 – 17 1/2 who suffer from a combination of issues such as: ADD/ADHD, Depression, Anger Management, Academic Problems, Parent/Child Conflicts, in combination with addictive disorders.

Thus, Ashcreek Ranch Academy provides specialized treatment services for youth with a dual diagnosis, one of which is typically an addictive disorder.Such addictive disorders can be manifested in a wide variety including, drug, alcohol, pornography, virtual social networking, gaming, etc.

Addictive disorders can be triggered by an attempt for symptom relief of a “primary” diagnosis (i.e. depression, low self-esteem, school failure, etc.) or the “secondary” diagnosis can be the result of an addictive disorder. Hence, Ashcreek Ranch will treat adolescents who demonstrate high comorbidity (presence of one or more disorders) rates between addictive and other mental and/or psychological disturbances.

Adolescents admitted to the Academy typically failed to succeed in less restrictive environment and/or are in need for long-term residential services following a short-term acute intervention such as an outdoor program or acute psychiatric hospitalization. The protracted nature of the disturbance is manifest in a host of maladaptive behaviors including school failure, stealing, lying, avoidance behavior, oppositionality, and the inability to function in the home environment.
