The Kolob Canyon clinical program is intentionally highly structured and intensive. It is the result of many years of successfully working with troubled teenage girls through a comprehensive program that mixes traditional and adventure therapy. We believe this blend of therapies decreases the amount of time a girl has to stay in the program while increasing overall success rates.  We are a DBT based program, but we also use different modalities of therapy to meet the individualized needs of our students.  Many of our therapists are trained in Equine Assisted Therapy, CBT, DBT and EMDR.  

All of our therapists are highly trained with a Master's Degree or higher, in therapy and/or counseling. Moreover, Kolob Canyon regularly exchanges ideas with leading adolescent therapists to ensure that your daughter benefits from the finest therapeutic treatment practices in the world. This is why we are so confident in our ability to produce lasting, positive change in teenage girls.

While enrolled at Kolob Canyon Residential Treatment Center, you and your daughter can expect to receive the following traditional therapeutic services:

  • Intensive individual therapy weekly
  • Group therapy sessions 4 times per week
  • Family therapy (via telephone/Skype) weekly
  • Family coaching
  • Mentoring staff assistance 24 hours a day
  • Daily goal setting group with Program staff

Additionally, your daughter will participate in a strong mix of experiential  therapeutic activities that include:

  • Equine Therapy 
  • Adventure Therapy each Wednesday
  • Horsemanship classes and riding lessons 
  • Daily exercise program
  • Trauma Sensitive Yoga
  • Monthly 3-day Adventure Therapy excursions
  • Service Projects

Horse care, riding, hiking, games, and cultural events are only a few of the  activities at Kolob Canyon. These pursuits not only provide entertainment, but also provide "real life" social interactions and involvement with the community to teach life lessons to our students.
