Our Environment

The natural setting of the Catalyst home provides a restorative effect for youth and visitors, with inspiring views of the Wasatch Mountains to the east and vast open lands to the west. One question you should ask yourself when you leave any program is, “how did that place feel?” Catalyst does not want an “institutional” feel to our home. At Catalyst, we strive for a positive home-like atmosphere to help the boys feel accepted and comfortable as they work through their treatment.

We also use a relationship-based model of management rather than compliance-or reward-based. The staff is upbeat, caring and professional, and foster positive relationships to invite and assist change. The natural setting and caring relationships are very important catalysts for change.

We are conveniently located about fifty minutes north of the Salt Lake International Airport


The Catalyst Campus has two homes housing 24 students each. Each home contains a large living area, dinning area, kitchen, educational space, shared bed rooms. Click on the photos below to see larger views of our homes.
