Though research shows children and families are best served in their homes and communities, there are cases in which a child may require treatment outside of the home. The Buckeye Ranch has the facilities and the treatment capacity to serve children and adolescents with these serious mental health needs, behavioral challenges, and substance use issues. The Buckeye Ranch's family-centered treatment approach drives our commitment to preserving family relationships and believes maintaining these bonds is crucial to the success of the child's transition back into the community.
Every day in this rich, therapeutic environment, girls and boys ages 9-18 are experiencing hope and healing. For those youth requiring a secure residential setting, our Intensive Care Center provides the care and structure they need with locked units, cameras, and a 1:4 staff-to-youth ratio. For those youth that do not require a locked setting, but still need a residential level of care, our Open Campus, with a 1:6 staff-to-youth ratio, can provide the treatment and skills they need to prepare for successful transition back into the community.
