New Perspectives - Feb, 2002 Issue #91 

Copperhills Youth Center
West Jordan, Utah

Located near the Oquirrah Mountains in Salt Lake City, Utah, Copper Hills Youth Center has the goal of providing an environment of harmony, stability, steadiness, and wholeness to help teens learn to deal with their problems so they can have a promising future. This 94-bed adolescent treatment facility serves troubled youth, ages 12-18 years of age. Offering gender specific programs programming for both boys and girls, they “provide a safe, secure, and highly structured environment that “promotes healthy and adaptive coping skills.”

“An individualized treatment plan is developed for each student by the inter-disciplinary team of professionals that includes physicians, nurses, teachers, licensed therapists and mental health associates. These professionals join with family and a positive peer culture to lead, guide and create an interactive and flexible environment - for change. As the youth advance in the prescribed levels, they find success in their efforts and develop new skills in the process. This structure, with its new peers, pressures and rules, challenges and standards, is directed and supported by a caring staff, a personalized treatment plan and a consistency of experience. The structure is both safe and secure. From this regimen will emerge new ways of coping, new styles of behavior, new applications for ideas and new means of expressing feelings, resolving conflicts and establishing boundaries.”

This program is licensed by the State of Utah, Department of Health and accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Heathcare Organizations (JCAHO), the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges and the Utah State Board of Education.
