The Five County Detention and Youth Rehabilitation Center is a county owned and operated facility that opened July 6, 1998 as a 21-bed perimeter secure facility operating under the Balance Approach of Restorative Justice principles providing group protection, accountability, and competency development. In addition to providing safety for the group and the victims of juvenile crime, the Center has committed the bulk of its resources to helping juvenile offenders develop pro-social positive coping skills that can empower them to lead productive, crime-free lives when they return to their home communities. The Center relocated on August 15, 2003 to a newly constructed 56 bed facility located in St. Anthony, Idaho. Currently, there are two programs; the first provides juvenile detention services for Fremont, Madison, Teton, Jefferson, and Clark Counties. The second program is a residential treatment program that focuses on treating juvenile offenders and reintegrating them back into society.
