The Disability Law Center is investigating the conditions of Youth Residential Treatment Facilities (YRTFs) in Utah.

These facilities are sometimes described as therapeutic boarding schools, wilderness camps, teen boot camps, residential treatment centers, or behavior modification centers. They are often advertised as providing programs for "troubled teens." You may have seen recent news coverage regarding Paris Hilton's stay at a Utah YRTF as a teen, but there are many similar locations across the state and many more unspoken experiences.

If you have experience with these facilities, whether as a resident, parent, or employee, the DLC would love to hear from you.
