Red Rock Canyon School

Red Rock Canyon School

Red Rock Canyon School is a state-licensed psychiatric residential treatment center serving boys and girls ages 12 to 18 located in St. George, Utah. We have a full residential facility, comfortable living units, and an accredited academic school with state-certified teachers, professional clinicians, and a beautiful campus. Our students are involved with many activities, including sports, enrichment classes in dance, music, art, and service projects.

Our Philosophy

The core premise of our care is that each youth is a resource, rather than a liability. We utilize the concepts and values of Positive Peer Culture for our program model. We place each youth into a peer group with a team of trained staff to work with. Each peer group becomes a cohesive team as they work together to provide each other help and concern, regardless of the problem. As each youth gives of himself and becomes of value to others in the peer group, he increases his own feelings of worthiness and positive self-esteem.  At Red Rock Canyon School, we do not measure progress in artificial terms of phases or levels. Rather, we measure increase by specific behavior patterns that reflect a deeper, inner change. Integral to this core process, our professional staff provides strong drug and alcohol treatment and therapy for specific psychological problems. We work very hard at family reunification, emphasizing parental support and family counseling while in treatment. As the teen prepares to leave treatment and return home, he will have the opportunity to work on transitional plans that match his/her specific needs. As they progress, the teen is given greater trust, less structure, more privileges, and greater responsibility.

Red Rock Canyon School Student Profile

Red Rock Canyon School has been able to help a multitude of youth suffering from different problems and diagnosis. A typical student is a defiant youth with a mental health diagnosis that has begun to make decisions in their life that are preventing them from getting along with their families, and causing problems in school and with their extracurricular activities. The youth tend to have been using drugs as a coping mechanism and are not generally truly addicted or in need of drug rehabilitation.

The boys are typically acting out through anger outbursts and verbally abusing the family. The girls are typically acting out through sexual promiscuity, running away, eating problems, cutting and self-mutilation.

Red rock canyon school was a lifesaver for my family.  After school counseling, weekly therapy and a wilderness program failed we hired an educational consultant who found Red Rock Canyon School for us. They worked with us as a family which I think is the key to their success. They truly brought our family back together.
