TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Before beginning treatment, clients undergo an initial substance misuse assessment and psychiatric evaluation to help clinicians determine an appropriate level of care and individualized plan of care. Spirit Mountain Recovery blends evidence-based treatment approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing (MI), with holistic and experiential methods.
To be admitted to the residential program, clients must complete three to five days of detox and commit to at least 30 days of treatment. Most clients stay in residential care between 45 and 90 days. According to a 2017 SAMHSA survey, 26.4 percent of rehabs in Utah offer a long-term (30 days or more) residential treatment program.
According to the facility's website, its programming focuses on diagnosing an individual's co-occurring mental health concerns. Residents may attend group and individual counseling sessions, as well as receive ongoing medication management. Family counseling is also available and highly recommended.
Spirit Mountain Recovery's day treatment involves a minimum of 20 hours of weekly programming similar to that offered through residential care. IOP involves up to 10 hours of weekly programming, consisting of relapse prevention workshops and counseling sessions. Spirit Mountain Recovery also offers aftercare counseling services to help clients successfully transition back into the community.
With a client to staff ratio of 2:1, Spirit Mountain Recovery employs a highly experienced staff comprised of psychiatrists, licensed social workers, nurses, therapists, dieticians, personal trainers, and peer support specialists.
