Cold Creek Wellness Center Philosophy
Cold Creek Behavioral Health is a nationally accredited, non 12-step drug and alcohol addiction treatment program. We offer a full range of the most successful evidence-based therapies. Cold Creek’s treatment programs are based on the Bio-Psycho-Social and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy treatment models that are recognized by Columbia University and the National Institute on Drug Abuse. These models view addiction as a disease while taking into consideration that there are Biological, Psychological, and Sociological factors to consider when treating addiction. We offer dual diagnosis treatment, which means we treat addiction and mental health issues at the same time and in the same setting. All of our limited enrollment programs offer individual treatment where only 8-10 clients are treated at a time. This ensures clients receive the individual counseling, and personal attention in a beautiful setting that balances healing and recovery.
Areas of Specialization
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
Animal therapy (also called animal-assisted therapy and pet therapy) supports recovery and emotional wellbeing by helping people develop relationships with animals. Animal therapy can be a one-time or ongoing experience.
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
Creative Arts Therapy
Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.
Thanks for the second chance, I am the happiest I have ever been. Even thought I did not take my treatment serious the first time, you took me back and treated me like with such compassion and understanding that with your help and therapy I am clean, sober and have so much hope for my future.
Treatment was top notch. My experience was great, as I learned much about myself and what I need to do to stay sober and have a productive life.
This was my 3rd treatment program, and by far the best. I was not a number, being one of only 10 clients I received the therapy I needed. This was the firs time I had not slid through treatment going unnoticed. Thank you and will recommend this treatment center to people that are in need.
My overall experience was more than I had anticipated. I really felt as though the staff cared about me. This was the first time I was able to get a handle on my medication. Fit2Recover and Equine Therapy were my favorite. Thank you for the positive launch to my recovery.
Words cannot express how grateful I am that I was blessed to be here at cold creek. With The therapists and counselors I have learned so much and you are such great role models for me. I hope to stay in touch with you and share my progression with you. Thank you
I am very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Cold Creek. This program and everyone involved have affected me in an extremely positive way and I am thankful for my time here. The staff are not only knowledgeable, but genuine and really have a passion for what they are doing here at Cold Creek. It made my experience not only educational, but I felt connected and more enthusiastic about my treatment. Thank You for everything to all the Cold Creek Staff. You are an amazing team doing so much good in the lives of those you treat!

ABOUT COLD CREEK WELLNESS CENTER - KAYSVILLE
Set in the residential community of Kaysville, Utah, 22 miles north of Salt Lake City, Cold Creek Behavioral Health offers a full continuum of treatment programs, including detox, residential, intensive outpatient (IOP), partial hospitalization (PHP) Programming, and sober living, for men and women struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health issues.
The organization’s Kaysville facility adheres to a non-12-step approach to recovery, emphasizing evidence-based treatment methods. The facility accommodates up to 10 people and offers treatment lasting between 30 and 120 days.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission, clients undergo a battery of initial assessments to assist clinicians in forming an individualized treatment program. According to the facility’s website, residential treatment typically lasts between 30 and 120 days, determined by the client’s specific needs and progress during treatment.
As a non-12-step program, Cold Creek utilizes a range of evidence-based treatment methods, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectic behavioral therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Clients participate in individual and group therapy sessions to modify destructive thinking and behavior patterns. If appropriate, medication-assisted therapy is also available.
Along with traditional methods, Cold Creek incorporates a range of holistic treatments and experiential therapies. Clients can participate in equine therapy and sessions in the Serenity BioSound Lounge. The cutting-edge lounge uses guided imagery, music therapy, and synchronized sound vibrations to assist clients in achieving a meditative state.
A family program is also offered and provides education, support, and resources for loved ones. Upon discharge from the residential program, many residential clients utilize the program’s gender-specific sober living facilities and 90-day intensive outpatient program as aftercare services.
Cold Creek Wellness Center’s staff is comprised of board-certified physicians, master’s level addiction counselors, family and mental health counselors, social workers, and an equine therapist. Due to the facility’s eight- to 10-person capacity, clients enjoy a staff-to-client ratio of nearly 1:1.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The facility offers an upscale, homelike environment conducive to comfortable recovery. With a maximum enrollment of 10 individuals, the facility features spacious shared bedrooms, a full kitchen, dining area, comfortable communal spaces, and a soothing décor. The facility is also across the street from the Barnes Park Sportsplex, offering opportunities for playing sports and other recreational activities.

This is an outstanding value.” The program also accepts most private insurance providers.
Cold Creek Behavioral health also notes that costs for any medication, as well as clothing and toiletries, are not covered by the center.
