Catalyst is a residential treatment center for boys ages 13-17, focusing on substance abuse and dual diagnosis. Students may have coexisting disorders of ADHD and academic problems, depression or suicidal ideation, adoption issues and relationship problems, low self-esteem, eating disorders and self injurious behaviors. Catalyst is a member of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs.

The four owners of Catalyst operate the program. They are Kreg Edgmon, PhD, LMFT, Executive Director, Seth Geisler, MS, MFT, LCSW, Therapist, Adam Poll, MS, MFT, LSAC, Clinical Director and Trevor Loria, LSAC, Program Director.

As a therapy intensive program, boys receive fifteen hours of clinician directed therapy each week, which can include individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, recreation therapy, animal-assisted therapy, education groups and Twelve-Step meetings.

Boys receive 10-12 hours of triathlon training each week with one or more of the owners. The focus of the triathlon training is to help students challenge their preconceived notions of what they think is possible for themselves.

Accredited academics at Catalyst include courses in core areas of math, science, English and history. Independent courses are also available through Brigham Young University. Art therapy, leisure education, spiritual devotionals, skill development groups, career development nights and service projects are all part of the weekly schedule.
