Utah Addiction Centers Philosophy
At the Utah Addiction Centers, treatment plans are specifically designed to resolve trauma, reduce trigger and eliminate the possibility of relapse. Programs include EMDR, Family Systems Therapy, Equine therapy, 12-step, individual therapy, group therapy and couples therapy. The facility strives to treat the "whole person," with an emphasis on addressing the emotional, medical, spiritual, physical, social and dietary needs of our residents. A dual diagnosis residential program is also available to treat range of mental health issues like depression, anxiety and other behavioral disorders that often underscore addiction.
Areas of Specialization
A form of animal therapy, equine therapy involves visiting, working with and sometimes riding horses as a way to create a metaphoric relationship that leads to life-altering insights.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.
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.
Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Utah Addiction Centers has given me a new approach to my addiction problems, providing new ideas and perspective to help me reach my goals. The staff and counselors made me feel welcome and provided me with the tools and encouragement to break my current thought process and begin to think and act in a more productive and healthy way. I owe them everything and encourage others to give them a chance to help.
I can’t say enough how much I owe to all the counselors and staff. With your help, I am free from addiction and for the first time in a long time, I have hope for the future.
I have been clean for 2 years now and I can't thank all of you enough! I am so grateful for your help. I have truly learned how to live life and be happy. The program works!!
Thank you for everything all of you have done for my son and our family. I am starting to believe that the nightmare that has plagued us for the past few years is finally over. I can't convey how good it feels to have hope again!
What I learned while at UAC, I will carry with me for the rest of my life. And I am forever grateful for the experiences I had there. I feel like I should be thanking you for saving my life, thank you!

ABOUT UTAH ADDICTION CENTERS IN EAGLE MOUNTAIN
Set in a large two-floor ranch style house surrounded by fields, lakes, and mountains located in Eagle Mountain, Utah, Utah Addiction Centers (UAC) in Eagle Mountain is a multi-disorder treatment center providing inpatient (IP) residential treatment, outpatient (OP) treatment, and day treatment. The center specializes in addiction treatment, treats co-occurring disorders, and offers detox.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
UAC therapists first create a detailed treatment plan for clients by looking at clients’ medical, mental, and social health history, including life and family history. Possible treatments include Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and equine therapy. Family therapy is considered a crucial component of treatment.
In the 30-day primary care program, clients undergo psychological testing, stabilize themselves, and create a care plan with UAC’s staff. In the extended care program, clients address deep-seated problems and begin the transition from residential living into outpatient and aftercare. Length is determined by the clients. An average client’s schedule includes nine mental health therapy groups, nine behavioral process groups, 23 education groups, and one to three individual sessions.
In the aftercare program, clients can join alumni support groups, anytime group sessions for life at no additional charge, and continued individual therapy with their primary therapists. UAC recommends clients participate in the program for at least a year.
UAC’s founder is a clinical therapist, the medical supervisor holds a medical degree and has won awards for his treatment methods, and the clinical supervisor is a licensed clinical social worker (LSCW). Clients are routinely treated by Masters level therapists, addiction specialists, clinical psychologists, and medical professionals.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
UAC houses laundry facilities, a lounge area, finely furnished rooms and bathrooms, and bedrooms with two twin beds each. Clients are recommended to bring phone cards for long-distance calls, exercise and weather-appropriate clothing, cell phones and recording devices, and medications. A horse pasture is nearby.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Alum Samantha, the single alum to provide feedback to Rehabs.com at this time, rated UAC a perfect five out of five stars to date. She praised the center’s staff, particularly her individual therapist, who was “incredibly intuitive to my needs and helped me overcome a lot of trauma from my past.” She responded warmly to the equine therapy despite her previous fear of horses.
On Google Reviews, Utah Addiction Centers has received 16 reviews to date, culminating in an average 4.3-star review. Not a single alum reported a disappointing experience. Recurring praise was given to the scenic setting and compassionate staff that went above and beyond to accommodate clients in several individual cases. Representative reviewer D.J. wrote to the longevity of success he found after seeking treatment at Utah Addiction Centers: “Prior to going to UAC I had long stretches of sobriety in my addiction, but was white knuckleing it and never felt happy being sober, which would eventually lead to relapse. But I am sober today and I feel joy daily.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Three loved ones polled by Rehabs.com had mixed reactions to UAC. Loved one F.S. praised the center for its welcoming environment and open communication between them and the staff about their son’s progress. They mentioned UAC billed their insurance company heavily.
The other two loved ones criticizing UAC sharply for its high costs. Loved one C.C.D. rated the center only one star in meals & nutrition and wrote the center charged them $8,600 for their son’s two-week long treatment. Loved one P.M.B. wrote their insurance was charged $100,000 for a month of treatment rather than the $20,000 promised, and that their husband had been used for manual labor. They wrote: “The treatment provided was not worth $20,000.”
On Google, the only negative review regarded obstacles working with the facility to arrange due payment with the client’s insurance provider.
UAC accepts some private insurance plans. No information is provided on the center’s cost. The center’s website describes the center as affordable, but reviewers polled by Rehabs.com report high costs.
