Building Connections on Home on the Range

Home on the Range (HOTR) is a treatment facility located in Western North Dakota. It is a facility that houses adolescents ages 10 - 18 with a diagnosis form the DSM-IV. Teens are at the facility for a variety of reasons such as drugs/alcohol, running away from home, unruly behavior, school or family problems and behavior problems. Teens come from North Dakota and bordering states including teens from reservations.
