The Autauga HIT program is a non-secure facility located on 64 acres in Autauga County. The facility is located in Prattville, Alabama, approximately 25 miles northwest of Montgomery.
The facility was built in 1986 and was utilized by Bradford Health Services to provide drug and alcohol rehabilitation services. In 1989 Bradford closed their operation, and the facility remained vacant until 1994. The Department of Youth Services purchased the facility in the spring of 1994. The Autauga HIT is a modified boot camp program that received its first group of students on August 30, 1994 and still is in operation. The emphasis of the program is to provide early intervention as an alternative to long-term incarceration for 78 minimum-risk male students. The primary goal of the 28-day program is to develop and enhance positive behavior characteristics through a highly structured intensive approach. Program components focus on self-concept development, aggression replacement training, academics, and physical fitness.
