Level 1: Treatment
Our program begins on a beautiful Texas horse ranch with four treatment phases that include intensive psychotherapy, experiential life-skills training, and equine therapy.
Phase 1: ORIENTATION
This two week period is a time when clients learn and adjust to residential treatment living and adapt to the program’s routine, services, and expectations. This immersion provides the opportunity to develop a connection to peers and staff.
During this time the client and her Primary Therapist, with the collaboration of the Medical Director, will develop an Initial Treatment Plan as the result of a thorough Psychosocial Assessment. The client will have completed a standard set of self-assessment tools.
The Residential/Academic Director conducts and initial Academic Assessment to begin planning for this critical aspect of the Fulshear Ranch experience.
Phase 2: PLANNING AND PROGRAMMING
The student and Primary Therapist complete a Master Treatment Plan (MPT) with input from the Treatment Team. The signed MTP is reviewed by the student, Primary Therapist and Treatment Team at least once every 30 days for the duration of the client’s stay.
Phase 3: COUNSELING AND SELF-EXPLORATION
The client completes written and/or experiential assignments and activities that will encourage discussion in core values and core issues:
Visions of My Past
Letter of Accountability
Past, Present, and Future Collage
Ranch Improvement Project
Phase 4: COMMUNITY OUTREACH / LEADERSHIP AND RESPONSIBILITY / INTEGRITY
The client will be expected to improve her ability to speak respectfully to peers and staff, demonstrate the ability to give and receive feedback respectfully and non-defensively, demonstrate an understanding of how actions affect relationships, and show a willingness to share personal information in groups. Clients will also be expected to perform 10 hours in community volunteering.
The client serves in a leadership position in the community and creates a Personal Vision Statement that includes: defining “Integrity,” making amends for past behaviors, and showing honesty with self and others.
