Utah Department of Corrections

The Utah Department of Corrections, through Adult Probation and Parole, operates five residential community correctional centers in Utah for offenders who are on probation or who have recently paroled from prison.

These "halfway" houses are designed to help offenders who may not have a place to go when they leave prison, need additional treatment as they transition back into the community or are struggling and at risk of returning to jail or prison.

There is one center in Northern Utah (Ogden), one center in West Valley City and three centers in Salt Lake City. The centers range in size from 60 beds to 300 beds and some offer customized services for their residents.

Of the five facilities, two — Orange Street and Atherton Community Treatment Center — are designated for women.

Fortitude Treatment Center opened in 2012 and is designed to serve male parolees. Fortitude strives to meet offender needs in a variety of ways. First, it serves as a transition facility for offenders who are released from prison and do not have appropriate housing arranged prior to their parole. Once these offenders find a suitable and safe place to live, they are released from the facility. Fortitude also serves as a stabilization facility for those who need a more structured plan as they re-enter the community. The stabilization normally consists of acquiring and maintaining employment, finding an appropriate residence, enrolling in and attending treatment and financial planning. 

Additionally, the Fortitude Treatment Center also offers the PVP (Parole Violator Program), to struggling offenders as a means of remaining in the community in lieu of incarceration. In some instances, when a parolee violates the conditions of his parole agreement, Adult Probation and Parole agents may recommend the parolee be placed in this program. As part of the program, Fortitude has on-site therapists who facilitate evidence-based therapeutic services, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, trauma-based groups and other services designed to best meet the needs of the offender.

Offenders who reside at Fortitude are subject to tighter restrictions than those under community supervision. While at Fortitude, offenders are expected to find employment, attend any recommended treatment and follow all center rules and policies. Offenders will also have a case manager who assists them in setting goals, finding community resources, successfully completing parole conditions and other individual case planning needs.  

All of the programs and services offered at the Fortitude Treatment Center are designed to meet the needs of each individual offender and assist them in successfully re-entering society as law abiding citizens.

Atherton Community Treatment Center

2588 W. 2365 South 
West Valley City, UT 84119

Telephone: 801-978-4500

The Atherton Community Treatment Center, housed in the former Fremont Community Correctional Center, is one of two facilities devoted to women. It has 60 beds and was officially opened as a women's facility on May 14, 2015.

The center is named after a true champion in the criminal justice community — Judge Judith Atherton. Judge Atherton, who retired from the bench in 2013 after a stellar legal career, has long been a vocal advocate for more community resources to meet the needs of offenders — particularly women — with substance abuse and mental health issues.

The Atherton center, which began accepting clients on April 17, 2015, is for women who have violated their probation or parole conditions and are at risk of being returned to jail or prison.

The women will be referred to the program by a probation or parole agent. Once in the program they'll work through a structured program that ranges in length from 7 days to 120 days, depending on their individual needs.

The program is part of the Department's Female Offender Success Initiative, which is based on the philosophy that programs and strategies used with female offenders should be gender responsive.

In part, that means addressing underlying trauma that may be at the root of poor choices; recognizing the importance of relationships in a woman's life; and using rehabilitation strategies tailored to a woman's needs. The tool used to determine those needs is the Women's Risk Needs Assessment, developed by the University of Cincinnati.

The center's programs will include education and employment help, an array of life skills classes (Moving On; Seeking Safety; Beyond Trauma; Parenting & Reunification, etc.), and health and relapse prevention courses.

(Opened in the 1980s as the Fremont Community Correctional Center, the center originally served men who were on probation or parole; it specialized in mental health and sex offender treatment.)
