"My 15 year old son was at TDR for 7 1/2 months. The change in him is nothing short of a miracle. I dropped off a teen that was on a fast track to failure. He was making many bad choices and was addicted to dope. He was starting on other drugs and his grades were slipping. He was lying and stealing. I did not know him anymore. After 7 1/2 months I got back a kid that I adore. He is wonderful to be around. He is not interested in drugs or alcohol anymore. He wants to get good grades and is going out for sports again. He helps out around the house without being asked. He even keeps his room clean! We are so greatfull to Mr Eric, his mentor and the whole staff. I highly recommend TDR. They have the kids write in a journal. While reading it you can hear the gradual change in the childs thinking process. It took two months for him to really get settled in. After that the real progress began. I liked that life on the ranch is very simple allowing inward thinking without distraction from electronics. The kids work the ranch and learn to be responcible. I can write so much more but I am going to help my son put his basketball hoop back up and he is patiently waiting for me. Thank you Turning D Ranch!!!!! "
