Belloni Boys Ranch
The Bob Belloni Boys Ranch is a residential treatment program for boys, ages 13-20, who demonstrate a persistent pattern of criminal behavior. The boys in our program typically have a history of family conflict, problems with chronic delinquency, substance abuse, and poor school performance. We accept youth from all parts of the state, with priority given to residents on the Southern Oregon Coast. The program includes individual, family, and group counseling as well as individual and group skills training. Most youth stay an average of 12 to 18 months before graduating from the program and returning to home, foster care, or other community living. Our goal is to help youth develop the skills and behaviors that they need to return to their communities and become productive law-abiding citizens.
Behavioral rehabilitation services provided includes supervised group living, peer support, individual, group, and family counseling, individual and group skills training, on-site school, substance abuse treatment, mental health treatment, psychiatric assessment and consultation, medication management, job skills, independent living skills training, and sex offender treatment. A step down program is also offered to provide graduated practice of pro-social skills in the community with less structure, while continuing to provide residential care.
Youth are referred to the program by the Oregon Youth Authority and county juvenile departments. All youth who enter the program must be placed in the care and custody of the Oregon Youth Authority by the juvenile court.
