Nestled tranquilly at the foot of Mount Timpanogos, overlooking the scenic lake of Utah Valley, sits the AYS
group home. With the horse corrals behind the property, including those agricultural smells and sounds, and the magnificent architecture of the temple seen from the front yard, this is, by all accounts, one of the most peaceful and serene group homes
in the state. With only one small group home, operated by the owners, this is also a very intimate setting for the care and treatment of troubled young men.
The AYS Group Home is designed to assist in the rehabilitation of adolescent sex offenders. More specifically, it is a NOJOS Level 6 residential treatment program for male juvenile sex offenders, from ages 15 to 18, with a four to one staff to client supervision ratio. We currently have DJJS and DCFS contracts, and a continuum of care is provided locally with an alliance between the group home and Alliance Clinical Services, which has NOJOS Levels 1 and 2 treatment programming available in American Fork and Provo city areas, which also has a DJJS contract for outpatient services.
Located just south of the point of the mountain, a few short miles from Interstate-15 in north Utah County, the AYS Group Home is also one of the most easily accessible locations for case managers and families to visit and do business.
Alliance Youth Services Timp Shadows Facility is a 24-hour intensive residential treatment program for up to eight adolescent males ages 15 – 18 in need of NOJOS Level 6 care as recommended in a psychosexual evaluation or Sexual Behavior Risk Assessment. Treatment includes:
- Treatment planning based on a diagnostic evaluation
- Instruction on specific behavior strategies to aid clients in reducing deviant sexual arousal
- Client-specific assault cycle definition
- Client-specific relapse prevention planning
