Program Description:

Welcome to Catalyst. Our philosophy is that the right environment can create the right kind of change. Our program has been designed to create a home-like setting that puts boys at ease as they work through the issues that have often created emotional distress for them and their families. Returning balance to your family and son through our Core Elements is our goal and forms the bedrock of our program.

We feel it is important to provide students with a balanced life-style. The right mix of therapy, recreation, art, music, academics, and experiential opportunities create an environment that is truly unique to Catalyst. Because of Catalyst's intimate setting, we are able to individualize our approach to better fit your son's needs. While this is a difficult time, we are committed to helping your family heal.

Our therapeutic approach is designed to give each of our students individualized attention to address his specific needs. Each student receives a minimum of 15 hours of therapeutic treatment weekly. In addition, each student participates in 10-12 hours of experiential activities with one or more licensed therapists.

Your son will receive 15 hours of individualized treatment weekly which includes:

3 hours of individual or family treatment
5 hours of group therapy with a licensed therapist
7-8 hours of experiential recreation designed to maximize your son’s treatment
Daily participation in recovery and specialized groups which include: addictive behaviors; men’s issues; music therapy; emotional discovery; problem solving; life skills; etc.
The Seven Challenges® is a specialized program that Catalyst employs to help each student work through their issues related to drug use and addictive behaviors
Twelve step meetings are also offered weekly
In addition to your son’s treatment, he will also participate in 10-12 hours of our experiential activities. We refer to these activities as “Challenge by Choice.” While not counted as therapy, we believe that this is some of the most valuable time we spend with the students.


Catalyst offers a fully accredited academic program. Classes are kept small to foster a positive learning environment. Students receive credit in 9 areas every 10 weeks. Courses are based in the core areas - math, science, English, and history - as well as PE, psychology, adult roles, group interaction, guitar, music, and other electives. Catalyst is also able to utilize independent study courses offered through BYU when needed.

Research indicates that daily cardio activity can have a more stabilizing effect on emotional disorders than the combined treatment of medications and therapy. Because of these benefits, the students are involved in a number of activities throughout the year which include mountain biking, hiking, snowboarding, swimming, running, skateboarding, and overnight excursions.

Triathlon Training

At Catalyst, an important part of our therapy involves physical activity and training daily. Students involved in the training may also compete, should they choose, in community based triathlons with the staff and owners.

Focus on Students

The focus is on students improving upon their own abilities to develop a sense of competency. Similar to wilderness programs and hiking, we use it as an intervention that students typically grow to enjoy.

The Catalyst Difference

Many residential treatment centers offer chemical dependency treatment, but few specialize in it. At Catalyst, we specialize in the treatment of substance abuse and dual diagnosis--such as, depression, ADHD, trauma, as well as others. Each boy's issues will fall somewhere on the substance abuse spectrum—anywhere from casual use and experimentation, to addiction. He will receive state-of-the-art care from our elite team. Because our treatment is not a "one size fits all" model, we screen out boys with hardened histories of sexual perpetration, serious gang involvement, violence, and serious criminal activity.
