Watch: Problem Drinking vs. Alcoholism
When is alcohol a problem?
You may find that your drinking has gone from being a social event to something you need to cope, or that your body has developed a tolerance for alcohol. If legal problems are headed your way, you must drink in order to feel normal, or you feel ill when you don’t drink, you may be in need of an alcohol rehab center.
We help you set limits so that you can live a successful life without the crutch of a substance that is harmful to your body, your relationships, and your mind. We will help you remove the bonds of addiction so that you are free to live the life you were intended to have.
If you fear that you may have a problem with alcohol, or that someone you love uses alcohol to cope, give us a call to speak to a qualified professional that can answer your questions.

Alcohol Rehab FAQ’s
Alcoholism is an addiction to alcohol, and it may involve a mental illness and compulsive behavior due to dependency on alcohol. Many people do not see alcohol consumption as a problem, and it may not be dangerous to all individuals when consumed responsibly in moderation. However, alcoholism is a disease that can lead to severe health problems, legal problems, relationship difficulties, employment problems, and financial troubles. When a person struggles with alcoholism, they may be unable to limit the amount of alcohol they drink, develop a tolerance to alcohol (so more is needed to feel the same effects), feel a strong compulsion to drink, or experience physical withdrawal symptoms when they do not drink.
Detox is short for detoxification, which is the process of letting the body remove the drugs or alcohol in it. The purpose of detox is to safely manage withdrawal symptoms when a person stops taking drugs or stops drinking. The detox period is the time that the body is allowed to process or metabolize any drugs and alcohol in the system and, in doing so, clears their toxic influence.
Detoxification can be broken down into three stages, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
- Evaluation. This step will assess:
- The presence of alcohol or drugs through urine, breath, or blood testing.
- The person’s current mental health state.
- Any existing medical issues.
- The most appropriate strategy.
- Stabilization. This step is the majority of treatment. It will begin with acclimating the person to the detox process as well as providing medical and/or psychological services to treat symptoms if required.
- Build willingness for further treatment. Detox alone does not constitute thorough addiction treatment. As withdrawal symptoms resolve throughout the detoxification period, staff will typically begin promoting further treatment to increase the chances of sustained recovery following the completion of detox.

People often assume the words rehab or treatment and recovery are interchangeable, that they mean the same thing. They actually are completely different. Inpatient rehab allows for round-the-clock care and personalized support from medical staff. Inpatient rehab is the best choice for anyone who wants to focus completely on recovery without the stress or distractions of work, school, or social obligations. Inpatient rehab, such as what we offer at Wasatch Crest Treatment, allows for full immersion in the recovery process and maybe a good choice for people who have tried other treatments unsuccessfully.
Recovery is the phase that occurs after the person has completed his or her treatment. Recovery may include peer support groups, addiction recovery workshops, Alcoholics Anonymous, or other similar support groups. These groups help the recovering addict stay on the right path. Recovery involves groups and individuals who provide ongoing support and act as a useful resource for issues that may occur after treatment. The resources in recovery are there to help the recovering addict avoid relapse.

Wasatch Crest Treatment is a facility and a staff without peer. Here are some of the reasons people choose us for the alcohol rehab treatment:
- Our mountainside campus — Wasatch Crest is located on over seven acres in Heber City, Utah. Our historic western-style estate offers crisp alpine air, majestic views of the Wasatch Mountains, serene fields, and miles of trails. It’s the ideal setting to make the changes you need in your life.
- Compassionate team — We know this isn’t a walk in the park. It takes courage and there is a certain feeling of vulnerability to take this step toward healing. We get that. Our approach is one of compassion, treating clients and their families with dignity as we guide you through your recovery process.
- Dual diagnosis approach — We know addiction isn’t a stand-alone issue: it typically occurs with mental health issues. Each tends to compound each other in a vicious cycle. We treat the cause of addiction, not just the addiction itself. We combine traditional talk therapy with mindfulness practices, helping you to acknowledge your thoughts and feelings in a completely non-judgmental way.
- Elevated adventure therapy — Our setting enables us to utilize true adventure therapy. From hiking the hundreds of miles of nearby trails to paddleboarding on nearby reservoirs, from mountain biking to winter sports, our weekly recreation therapy outings will challenge and inspire you.
