Reviews at a Glance
- Dual Diagnosis/ Co-occuring Disorders
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
- Individualized Treatment
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
- Medical Detox
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

Kevin Thacker - Admissions Director
I am a person in long term recovery. I spent years battling and eventually overcoming my own substance abuse demons. I work in this field for one reason, to help people. I grew up in Utah and spent most of my life feeling separate, alone and different. My addiction got the best of me for years and it wasn’t until I spoke up about my problem that I found people who had gone through the same struggles as me, found a way through them and were willing to show me a new way to live. I call this recovery. When I was hopeless it was people in recovery that were able to show me that hope was possible. I try everyday to pass this along to the clients I work with. Hope is never lost and recovery is possible. Recovery is a lifestyle. I honor my recovery by speaking about it to anybody that may need to hear it.
