The Buckeye Ranch has had a lasting impact on the lives of so many youth and families. You’ll be inspired by these words of hope and recovery.

"After attempting to commit suicide, our daughter spent a year in various Ranch treatment programs. Today, she is in college and has made the dean’s list every semester. She will graduate in a few months and we couldn’t be more proud of her. I cannot begin to express the hopelessness we felt, nor can I express our gratitude to the Ranch every time we see this beautiful young woman, with her ornery grin and optimistic attitude."

"I was admitted to The Buckeye Ranch's residential treatment program just before my 14th birthday. After several months, I was finally ready to set up a new life -- one that I wouldn't want to destroy. I knew that if I didn't get away from the sort of lifestyle I was used to before treatment began, I would either be in jail or dependent on drugs. Today, I'm a 19-year old college student studying architectural drafting. It is scary how messed up my life could've been if I didn't have the support system I have now including the Ranch."

"I used to feel like I didn’t belong anywhere, but when I was at The Ranch; I realized there were other kids with the same types of problems. It made me feel like I wasn’t alone."

"I can’t say enough about The Buckeye Ranch. They’ve always been there for us. If our caseworker couldn’t get us the answer we needed, her supervisor would."
