It is the mission of Birdseye RTC (BRTC) to provide intensive and comprehensive residential treatment by offering a new beginning in the lives of adolescent boys who are struggling with inappropriate sexual behaviors; believing that each boy can learn to live a healthier life by strengthening relationships, increasing awareness, learning new skills, and developing both socially and emotionally.
BRTC is a community-based residential program, providing supportive care and specialized treatment for youth ages 13 through 18 who have inappropriate sexual issues. The program is licensed and monitored by the State of Utah Department of Human Services. The program provides direct supervision with a one to four staff-to-youth ratio during the day and a one to six staff-to-youth ratio during sleeping hours. By holding youth accountable for controlling impulses and behavior and by emphasizing hope for a healthier life, the program offers youth the opportunity to develop a new perspective on relationships and achieve comprehensive rehabilitation.
BRTC is located in the rural mountain community of Birdseye, approximately 30 miles south of Provo, Utah. The 50-acre ranch has a beautiful mountainous backdrop and an abundance of clean air, wildlife, and recreational opportunities. The surrounding area consists of land governed by the Division of Wildlife Resources, the Federal Bureau of Land Management, Manti-La Sal National Forest, and the Uinta National Forest. In the ranch setting, young men live outside the mainstream of the community and yet have access to community resources for medical, dental, and recreational services.
