Information for Parents and Guardians

Northwoods Ranch & Retreat does not believe bigger is always better and understands the importance of your son or daughters success includes as much individualized attention as needed. With the professional staff living at the program residence, your son or daughter will have access to 24/7 counseling services.

A feature unique to Northwoods Ranch & Retreat is our committment to acceptance of no more than eight to nine students at a time in the mens and womens, four to five to allow for the necessary personal attention individuals deserve. Northwoods Ranch & Retreat is focused on a structured family environment where all daily activities can be closely supervised and supported.

Here at Northwoods Ranch & Retreat we understand the importance of the family’s role in the students well being and its necessity for healthy dynamics through communication and support. Although we do not intially allow access to phones in order to avoid distractions during the preliminary Residential period, students are encouraged to maintain weekly correspondence with parents through letter writing. After the student has completed the residential program, he or she will have the ability to call home at will.

Monthly scheduled phone meetings are included in Northwoods services. These meetings inform you of your son or daughters current events, emotional status, successes and challenges in a collaborative effort to further understand and overcome student issues.

 

During the student's enrollment at Northwoods Ranch & Retreat parents will also have access to our Facebook page where weekly photos and activity information is posted.
