7 Guiding Principles


Recovery is the first step in everything we do; sobriety is the cornerstone upon which we build our lives and ultimately reach our personal potential.


Recovery from chemical dependency is a “whole person” process that involves physical, cognitive, emotional and spiritual growth and healing.


Academic success is imperative for developmental growth of the adolescent and in creating resiliency against substance abuse relapse.


All of our students possess the potential to excel academically, to become strong leaders, and to live healthy, productive and happy lives. Together we will find the keys to unlock each young man’s potential.


The support of family members and healthy family relationships are an integral part of our program and the recovery process


The staff at In Balance Ranch Academy help bring out each student’s talents and strengths, providing for a positive, realistic and optimistic future.


Service to others is an essential component of daily life at the ranch. Our students give unselfishly to others as they realize their incredible potential to become leaders of change in their own lives and in their communities.
