I’m not sure how many stars are appropriate to give them. My daughter’s FNP(family nurse practitioner) referred us to them and said a new psychiatrist was there. We went in and she was tested. First visit I loved because my daughter refused to go to any appt. Therefore taking 3 hrs. To get ready and yet was not dressed in winter cloths. I took her how she was which was in shorts in December, that was put in the report. She made a snobby face at the psychiatrist and psychiatrist made it back with the comment “ this is my job and we’ll be here all day if you like, it’s up to you.” ???? Um sorry, but that was what my daughter needed to hear from someone else rather than constantly coming from her single mom! She started talking but very softly and was hiding her face with her hair. At the end, daughter was highly recommended to be put on antidepressants in which that specific psychiatrist didn’t give meds, neither does her FNP... so I was back to square one. Report was almost the same as what I had unloaded of all the ways she acts, says, and does ???? So frustrating. I have started her on natural vitamins myself just by searching online for depression because it has begun to affect my son and I so much as well. I wish to go back though because I think their foundation is great and we could see a psychologist/therapist and hopefully get somewhere. I do also hope BGR hasn’t changed and would help us out.

Thirteen years ago our son, in his mid-teens went to DBR and spent 8-9 months there. The ranch, at that time, used a clearly defined system of rewards and consequences. If they followed the rules, they earned points; if they broke the roles, they lost points. The boys were assigned chores such as kitchen duty, shoveling snow, house-keeping. They went to school. The classrooms had 8-10students in them by grade level, there the curriculum was no-nonsense, solid subjects. They played organized games of softball, frisbee, and other sports. There was ample time for active teens to burn off all the energy typical of the age-group. At the time, 13 years ago, the people of Minot seemed untouched by the cynicism of the rest of the US. They were polite, affable, open, and friendly. My son, now in his early 30s, talks about his time there fondly. He lives on his own, works, hangs out with his friends, and doesn’t get into trouble. I hope DBR hasn’t changed.
