I would not recommend Brush Creek to anyone who truly wants help for their son. The Blankenships and the staff are inconsistent in their treatment of these children. They tend to pick favorites and bully the boys who could really benefit from their help. most of the staff are completely unqualified to be in charge of teenage boys. Look elsewhere!!!!
Our entire family has learned about healthy communication because of the year our son spent with Brush Creek Youth Ranch. The counselors gave our son a great deal of coaching, and he had lots of time to practice through letter writing and phone calls. What we didn’t expect was how much instruction would be available to us on parenting. What we learned about good communication strengthened our marriage and helped us with our other children as well. Our whole family is stronger because of the teaching of Brush Creek Youth Ranch.
