    Chris Farni, BA, MBA, CPAPresident/General Manager
    I have experienced first-hand the seemingly endless pain and misery untreated substance addiction can bring not only to the loved one afflicted, but everyone around them. As a single Dad I learned the hard way how to deal with the chaotic, illogical, dysfunctional behavior of addiction. Having survived these heartaches, learned from them and wanting to give back to others who are suffering with addiction, my son Matt, recovered now for nearly 6 years, our Clinical Director, Dr. Todd Soutor and I started Spirit Mountain Recovery, acquired an isolated residence in the mountains of Utah, assembled a highly experienced medical and clinical staff, got the treatment program fully licensed by the State of Utah and Accreditied by The Joint Commission (JCAHO). Matt now serves as our Chief Certified Peer Support Specialist. Our passion is to assist others in obtaining the unique keys to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction and how to achieve sustained sobriety.
