Residential Treatment Center


Red Top Meadows is a 14-bed residential treatment and therapeutic wilderness program established in 1980 to serve adolescent males. The facility is located on 20 acres bordering the Bridger-Teton National Forest.

Placement of a child at Red Top Meadows is a logical step when the child is not able to function in their home and school environments. It can be a helpful transition between old negative cycles of behavior and developing healthier more productive ways of dealing with life’s difficulties.

Common issues for our students include poor school performance, family conflicts, poor peer relationships, depression, childhood trauma, attention difficulties, sexual issues, and poor decision-making, coping and social skills.

Residential treatment helps boys and their families facilitate solutions, assume responsibility, generate positive cycles and highlight changes as they happen. It is a time to experiment and practice new skills and behaviors. There is an expectation that there will be a lot of hard work using these new skills and behaviors at home, during visits and after the placement has ended.
