Here at Wasatch Crest You Can Expect Change
Frequently Asked Questions
We believe the opposite of addiction is connection. Addiction promotes shame that disconnects us from our personal, professional and spiritual relationships. We believe in combating addiction through writing a new story of reconnection. That is what we do.
Our clinical and leadership professionals alongside our tranquil atmosphere and the like-minded community of individuals address shameful addiction together. Addiction is just symptom of something bigger. Our clinical programs target the biological, behavioral, and interpersonal origins of addiction. We inspire change through education, acceptance and compassion for our clients, family and staff. Utilizing clinically robust services and adventure guided experiences in our picturesque setting, we begin to create a new story of recovery.
In the beginning, feelings of discomfort, doubt, embarrassment and shame may surface. Not only is this NOT weakness, it is a critical part of the therapeutic process. These feelings keep addiction active. The sooner they are addressed in our safe, non-judgmental, professional and caring environment the sooner the healing. Addiction is a liar; our clinical team’s goal is to reveal your truth. Expect to be challenged during the therapeutic process. Giving up or leaving treatment may also be contemplated. Coming to terms with painful parts of life induces growing pains, remember, they don’t last forever, but sobriety can.
Most importantly, expect to meet and be surrounded by an incredible group or professionals and peers. Wasatch Crest’s team of professional pride themselves on serving our clients, not just providing a service. Our team always places the priority, the safety and the recovery of clients first. Treating clients and their families as they would want to be treated, with the utmost respect and dignity. The peers at Wasatch Crest are individuals in similar situations. Drawing strength, hope and shared experiences from one another is part of the healing journey.
The way a client immerses back into the community is the most important element to a successful life of recovery. Staying sober while being held accountable and surrounded inside the walls of treatment is challenging enough. Reestablishing the responsibilities of family, work, social and recovery activities outside of the walls of Wasatch can be daunting and dangerous, but it doesn’t have to be, and we understand this.
We teach and guide our clients through the delicate balance of each priority to help reduce the chances of a relapse due to be overwhelmed. Our clinicians accomplish this by working closely as a team to develop a comprehensive plan for each individual, ultimately producing the best individualized relapse prevention as possible.
The duration of treatment is dependent on each individual’s history as well as their dedication to recovery. We thoroughly assess and provide an individualized treatment plan, which will determine level and length of treatment. We take in consideration that substance addiction damages the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, so each treatment plan is based on the severity of addiction and time it will take for each condition to heal. For inpatient treatment, we recommend a minimum stay of 90 days, but extending this stay can greatly improve your patient’s long-term sobriety. Additional therapies and treatments may vary.
Our physician and nurses have a range of options to make sure that every patient’s detox is safe and as comfortable as possible.
We work with a variety of medical detox centers in and around Utah.
Wasatch Crest offers confidential consultations and tours. If the initial consultation is more convenient over the phone, our specialized intake professionals are available 24/7 at 800-385-3507.

Wasatch Crest is out-of-network with insurance companies so that our addiction treatment experts can determine what type of treatment is necessary, versus allowing insurance to dictate how many days a patient can stay and what types of treatment will be covered.
This does not mean the patient’s insurance is not an option: Wastach Crest has an insurance department devoted to finding reimbursements for every patient. In fact, most of our patients with insurance are able to receive some level of reimbursement for our treatment services.
Family involvement is crucial for the recovery process. Many times, addiction stems from issues within the family, so it’s essential to understand family dynamics and provide a space for the family to communicate and heal. Not only does this heal the client, but it brings freedom and peace for the rest of the family.
Family Programs are highly recommended. Recognizing that families are equally impacted by addiction and have a central role in the recovery process is essential for the success of recovery for everyone. The complex relational patterns developed during a family member’s active addiction will require a steady focus on family interactions to bring about productive change. Systemic recovery is one of our core values, by broadening the recovery process from the individual to the family we improve effectiveness for everyone. Wasatch Crest creates space for families to have a voice during their family members time here. Because the recovery process is complex and multi-faceted we believe open communication is essential. We appreciate and support families seeking positive change and who have their own goals.
