The Autauga C.L.I.M.B. (Character, Leadership, Integrity, Motivation, Best Attitude) program is located on 63 acres in rural Autauga County near Prattville, Alabama. The facility was constructed in 1986 by Bradford Health Services to serve as an alcohol and drug treatment center for adults. In 1994 the property was acquired by the Department of Youth Services for development of a modified boot camp program.
The Autauga C.L.I.M.B. program (formerly HIT) provides a short-term, highly structured environment for low to medium risk males in the juvenile justice system. With the help of specially designed programming and trained staff, youth are motivated to participate in outdoor adventure-based programming to address behavior issues and to teach pro-social skills in an effort to increase their self-esteem, self-discipline, regard for others, and functional ability to adapt and make a contribution to today’s society.
