Ashcreek Ranch Academy is an equine assisted treatment program for adolescent boys between the ages of 14 and 18 suffering from academic, behavioral, or substance abuse issues. Boasting over 100 horses and 75 acres, Ashcreek Ranch Academy’s unique experience allows participants to harness a powerful work ethic through a remarkable horsemanship program designed specifically for young men. The hands-on approach of experiential equine therapy promotes personal accountability in boys, while also emphasizing the importance of mutual trust and respect as a part of all healthy relationships. During their stay on the ranch, participants receive a world class academic education and are assisted in credit recovery if needed. Participants also receive individual, group, and family counseling, as well as substance use groups and meetings.

Specialization

  • Horsemanship Program
    Natural Horsemanship for Therapeutic Intervention represents a fundamental part of our experiential therapy program at Ashcreek Ranch Academy. The central aim of equine therapy is to help our students create healthy relationships based on mutual trust and respect. Many times, the lack of understanding of the importance of “trust” and “respect” is the teen’s core issue. Therefore, “trust” and “respect” becomes the focal point of the therapeutic goal.
  • Community Service Focus
    Ashcreek Ranch Academy is also very committed to participation in community service projects. Community service provides an atmosphere in which boys learn to enrich the lives of others by getting outside of themselves. Ashcreek Ranch Academy students participate in community and neighborhood service projects to promote self-esteem and a sense of purpose. Service projects consist of work projects, as well as visiting those who are in need of friendship and companionship at local nursing homes, senior citizens centers or assisted living homes.

Im writing this review not to bash the owners or program but to just give adequate warning to anyone considering sending their son here, please keep that in mind. I attended ashcreek from winter 2018 to winter 2019, and what i experienced there turned me away from getting the help i actually needed. i was sent to Ashcreek for drug abuse problems which where at the time just marijuana and alcohol and i will admit i was out of control. Ashcreek did not help me at all with these problems, there was so focus or actual help for addiction there, AA or NA is a 12 step program that you work with another alcoholic or addict to complete and the steps dont end past that either. On the other hand Ashcreek made a complete mockery of the program that has helped so many get their lifes together and saved them from near certain death. My \"sponor\" at ashcreek was my therapist (for those not in the know that is VERY taboo). There was no work on the 12 steps, i was just told to write from a NA book i did nothing actually on the 12 steps. My nest point is the food and program necessities, we constanly where being given lower quality food since there was a \"lack of funds for food\", meanwhile the owner Darren was buying additions to his houses and his properties. Ashcreek destroyed my relationship with my family and we are finally on good terms almost 3 years later. the program would lie to my family about what was happening to keep me there longer and if i tried to tell my family about what was going on id be shut down by my therapist/\"sponsor\" at the time and my parents would be told im doing terrible and im lying for a way out. finally after a year my family saw through the owners lies and pulled me out of the program, i returned home with so much resentment and anger i messed my life up worse than i did before which is a result of my own childishness and immaturity. i finally got sober February 12 2020 thanks to a sober living that has actually showed me the 12 steps and how to life a life as a responsible member of society. Again i did not write this review to bash Ashcreek or the owners but to help someone who is struggling with a child send their son to a place that they will actually get support and help they need. Thank you to any who have read this essay all the way through and may you have a blessed day. -Will Former patient at Ashcreek Ranch Academy

I am so very grateful for treatment facilities such as ARA. The staff truly care and go out of their way to make an impact on each child. The different activities provided lots of valuable lessons for all involved. Definitely would recommend ARA to anyone who needed these types of service!

my son has been at Ash creek for 5 months. I have seen improvement and healing in my son and it progressing each time I visit. The program is amazing and they stand behind what they say and represent. They bring the teens back to being teens and teach responsibility and clean fun. They are a great treatment facility and they staff truly care about the residents and family members.
