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 recreational 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.  Our therapists are trained and certified 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:

  • Intense individual therapy at least 2-3 hours weekly
  • Regular group therapy session 4 times per week
  • Family therapy (via telephone/Skype) weekly
  • Family coaching
  • Program staff assistance for student treatment 24 hours a day
  • Daily goal setting groups with Program staff

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

  • Regular Equine Therapy 
  • All day Wednesday Adventure Therapy activity
  • Recreational horsemanship classes and riding lessons 1-2x weekly
  • Daily exercise program
  • Monthly 3-day Adventure Therapy trip

Horse care, riding, ropes courses, hiking, games, theater and movies are only a few of the recreational 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 your daughter.

Kolob Canyon Residential Treatment Center is a Certified Educational, Recreational, and Therapeutic Schools and Programs (CERTS) facility. CERTS requires the highest standards of education, care, and training in the industry. We believe that being a CERTS facility can improve the odds for changing the lives of our students.
