A Cowgirl's Guide to Ranch Living would include advice, information and knoweldge that would benefit troubled girls during their stay at White Horse Ranch. The truth is that many troubled girls will not be prepared for the life-saving transformation waiting for them as they begin their stay at our residential treatment facility. The girls who come to White Horse Ranch have usually managed to find themselves in some trouble due to substance abuse problems and co-occurring issues. We understand that troubled girls arrive with a lot of baggage. But through therapy and recovery, we can help them begin to unpack that baggage and to find opportunities for healing and restoration each day. To learn more about how White Horse Ranch can help troubled girls deal with substance abuse issues and to glean a few bits of advice from the Cowgirl's Guide to Ranch Living, call 1-866-492-8774.

A Student Poem to Help Troubled Girls:

A Cowgirl Guide To Ranch Living

WHR helped me figure out a lot of stuff,
and here there’s no good enough bluff.
When I came here all I wanted was a drug,
and I never missed those messed up thugs.
You will hate this place at first,
then your emotions are going to get worse.
The staff are only here to help you,
be straight up with them and tell them the truth.
Dig down deep and be honest with yourself,
and let yourself get the necessary help.
The counselors are only here to help you,
with all the stuff that you’ve been through.
The food is so good,
but it’s not like being back home in the hood.
Choose wisely who you trust,
that rule is a must!
Take up the challenge to actually bond with your horse,
and don’t feel or show any remorse.
Be thankful that you are alive,
because at some point in your life you could’ve died.
So take this program and take it seriously,
and don’t let your life story be a mystery.
Be happy and follow the rules,
and don’t pay attention to any of the fools.
- Heather O'Neal
