The mission of Hilltop is to:
- provide effective therapeutic services and quality treatment to adjudicated youth and their families;
- provide a safe and secure environment;
- reduce risk behaviors; and
- promote accountability
Hilltop is a residential treatment center operated by Family Court Services, which houses up to 39 adjudicated males and 13 adjudicated females. The length of the program is different for each resident, however the minimum stay is five months and the average is six months. Program completion depends on the willingness of the resident to accept responsibility for their actions and meet the goals of their treatment plan. It is our goal that each resident will learn the necessary skills to become responsible and control their behavior so that when they leave Hilltop, they will not be involved in further criminal activities.
Hilltop offers a variety of services including the EQUIP Program, individual and family counseling through ReDiscover Mental Health, Substance Abuse Programming, Educational services, Sentence to the Arts, Victim Empathy classes, Nurturing Parenting groups, Boy Scouts and Venture Girls.

Though continuously striving for quality, there may be times when you have a concern regarding your youth’s behavior or the treatment process. Because we are interested in hearing and resolving your concerns, we suggest you talk with our staff. By maintaining contact with your youth’s Case Management Officer (CMO), you are able to remain informed about your youth’s progress and offer valuable input in his/her treatment.
