Utah Addiction Centers Philosophy

Our mission is to help our clients realize that their life is worth living and fighting for. To that end, we custom tailor each individual's treatment plan to their specific needs. Our "Mental Health Comes First" approach will address and resolve the root causes that drive substance abuse and addictive behaviours. We treat the "whole person," with an emphasis on strengthening their emotional, spiritual, and physical well being. We truly are experts in treating depression, anxiety and other behavioral disorders that often underscore addiction. Contact us to learn more about our unique program.

Areas of Specialization

  • Equine Therapy
    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.

ABOUT UTAH ADDICTION CENTERS

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 client 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, which will also track attendance at 12-step meetings and involve ongoing communication through phone calls and text messages.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

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 other behavioral health 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.

Of the six alumni polled on the staff's level of training and experience, the alumni gave a perfect average rating of five out of five stars. The facility received its lowest ratings for its holistic treatment offerings, which received a modest average of 3.4 out of five stars.

On Google, Utah Addiction Centers has received 18 reviews to date, culminating in an average 4.4 out of five stars.[1] 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.”

On its Facebook page, which the facility can manage, it earned eight perfect five-star reviews. [2]

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 criticized 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.”

FINANCING
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.

The staff. The therapists are amazing. They know their stuff and are able to teach skills and explain the disease of addiction. They help you explore coping skills, treatment, and recovery. The staff really care about clients and want everyone to succeed.They focus on trauma and get down to the real issues(s) of why someone is acting out the way that they are. They work intensely with the individual and as a group.The therapist are trained in EMDR. There's equine therapy every week. UAC has a really good program and treats the root of the issue.They offer Aftercare also so that when you graduate the program you can come back to groups. I would definitely recommend this facility to anyone who is looking to get help with any addictions, depression, self harm, eating disorders, etc.

they have a great team that complements each other's strengths and offers a diverse recovery for the client with their best interest at the core. A downfall was not enough time spent with the horses, the weather was a hindrance though. i did not care for the Sunday meeting either, my opinion though as i am not lds. this was not a legal condition for me, my choice to attend was simply a desire to get the help i needed. i was accepted with understanding and a team that was considerate of my situation and a desire to help. i was offered an opportunity and am grateful i chose uac to help me become sober again. thank you uac for all you do for the people you take in to help in their struggles.

The strength of UAC lies in its size. This allows staff and clients to really come to know what is needed and expected in order to heal. I would like to see a covered place for the horses. Because of the ongoing concern ... the entire staff have for each client, I knew I could rely on them when I found myself slipping in my addiction once I had gotten out. There was no judgment, and it was the perfect "tune-up" for me.

Keeping clients busy so they don't think about theyre addiction A downfall was that there were not enough phone lines Clients are able to interact with each other. more like a home based system where clients are allowed in the upkeep of the facility

My son stayed here for drug addiction treatment for approximately six weeks in 2015. I have nothing but praise and gratefulness for the people at this center. The counselors and staff were so down to earth yet very in tune to the needs of the people there. I felt like they did a good job providing an environment to keep my son safe to open up and face his own challenges yet did not "suffocate" him with rules and regulations. I visited him while he was there and the house is truly as nice as what you see in the pictures and they welcomed me to join the family discussion group. I was pleased that they were very willing to communicate with me while he was there. He is still doing well, is working full time 7 months after leaving and looking towards the future. They did bill my ins co. quite a bit but that's because the ins excludes nearly half of the charges. They have to get paid and have a right to bill just like any medical or treatment facility would. I know it will always be a lifelong process for him but I truly believe these people saved my son's life. He still uses some of the techniques they taught him. I highly recommend this center.

I love, love, love this Utah Addictions Center. The staff was super awesome to work with and I benefitted greatly from the treatment hat I received there. They were extremely helpful in individual and group sessions. I surprisingly loved equine and overcame my fear of horses. My individual therapist was incredibly intuitive to my needs and helped me overcome a lot of trauma from my past. Thanks to all the awesome staff at Utah Addiction Centers. I am super pleased with the treatment I received and would recommend to anyone seeking help.

The treatment center said I owed over $8,600.00 based on what insurance would pay and demanded it immediately when my son had been there two weeks. Because we went out of network, we were obligated to pay whatever was due after insurance to reach the $12,000.00 for the care. All documented in an email from the President. My insurance paid more than expected, $1,400.00 more and they are giving us a very difficult time with the refund. While I do believe my son benefited from the first two weeks, after that things went down hill. I plan to pursue this further. Please think long and hard about this facility before choosing it.

If you are looking for help for you or a family member, do yourself a favor and look for another facility. For the last 2 years I have been fighting a battle with this facility. My husband ended up here for one month, this facility refused to give us a price for the 30 day treatment, after a lot back and forth they provided a contract telling us that they were only charging $20,000 for the 30 days but then turned around and charged our insurance around $100,000 for a month of treatment. My insurance paid them over $60,000 for 30 days of service. The treatment provided was not worth $20,000. My husband was used as manual labor to move furniture around when they had to move stuff from one room to another. The treatment he received was not good at all. These people take advantage of families when families are in a very vulnerable situation. The whole time while they didn’t want to give us the price for the treatment, they kept pretending that they care, they kept saying that they were going to provide us with a scholarship and that they were losing money but trying to give us a break, etc, etc, only to realize that the whole time they wanted to keep my husband there because they were going to get a very hefty payment for a service that was not really worth it.

Official Facility Response

1. $100,000! That's a lot of money! Are you sure about that number? Our program is $12,000 per month! That price is in the contract that is signed at the beginning of treatment. 2. No one is forced to do anything here, that includes moving furniture.
