Copper Sage Recovery Philosophy
At Copper Sage Recovery we pride ourselves in going above and beyond for our clients. We are a sixteen bed Residential Treatment facility for adults, in Bluffdale Utah. We are Utah’s premier provider for Equine Assisted Learning. We have a dynamic six horse on site equine program. We strongly believe that the emotional connection formed with a horse can be a strong bridge to recovery from mental health and substance abuse issues. We emphasize a focused and balanced approach to recovery. We know that mental health and addiction affect you on the individual, personal and professional level. We focus on those while healing the mind, body and spirit. Our Doctor is a world class, board certified addiction and mental health specialist. Each of our therapists are masters level clinicians and specialize in trauma, ptsd, mental health and addiction. Each day our Chef prepares and plans amazing meals that are both delicious and healthy. At Copper Sage we honor and believe in all paths of recovery. Locally we attend 12 step meetings, SMART Recovery, ONE Voice, Refuge Recovery, Addict II Athlete and FIT to Recover. Each client is assigned an individual therapist, a case manager and an equine assisted learning leader that they meet with throughout the week. At Copper Sage we know that through mental health and addiction the family is affected as well. We have an amazing family program. Each week all family members aged sixteen and older are welcome to the facility for family programming. We do family education, family process, family therapy and family equine groups. We believe healing starts within the individual and spreads from there. We are truly grateful for the relationships we are able to build with each of our clients and their families. The blessings of recovery are endless.
Areas of Specialization
Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
