Our Transitional Living Program Director, Tyson Allred, and Clinical Director, Rich McDonald, CMHC, discuss Wasatch Crest’s Uinta Sober Living Program. You can watch their full presentation below.
Wasatch Crest’s on-campus Uinta sober living residence is open to males who are transitioning out of residential treatment.
In residential treatment, clients are able to stabilize with medical and mental health support as they uncover underlying issues. After graduating from residential treatment, male clients can move to our Uinta sober living program.
While there, clients participate in our intensive outpatient program or partial hospitalization program. As they continue their treatment, clients process trauma, develop healthy coping skills, and work on rebuilding their relationships.
The Uinta sober living program focuses on helping clients develop practical life skills. We work with clients to help them obtain necessary identification documents, build credit, create resumes, and interview for jobs. They also practice budgeting, cooking, and household chores. Additionally, clients are able to practice emotional regulation and interpersonal skills while interacting with other house members.
Before clients graduate from our sober living program, we ensure they have housing, transportation, job placement, and an aftercare plan. From there, the new graduates are welcomed into our Wasatch Warriors Alumni program, which offers aftercare support with frequent check-ins, meetings, and events.
