Just my 2 cents
Diamond Ranch Academy is the elite & premiere residential treatment center for troubled youth. They are the best of the best. Meaning, you must be on your "A" game at all times. This is just part of DRA's expectations. DRA helps families heal by learning how to create healthy relationships. For this culture to work, you too must continuously improve/work on yourself. The days are long, the stress is constant, and the never-ending demands are very much real. Luckily, you will work with some fantastic people. It's these bonds that will alleviate the constant pressure of the residential treatment environment. If you are up for a serious challenge, then DRA is the place for you, no doubt. If you like a stress free atmosphere with the option of taking it easy, I would politely suggest you do not apply at DRA.
In the end, it's all about the relationships. Witnessing students transform by learning, maturing (emotionally), and succeeding in overcoming their struggles is why we all choose to work at DRA.
A lot of fond memories. A lot of good times...
In conclusion, this company is the real deal. They will expect to allot of you. If you are at peace with this, you will do fine. Best of luck!
