Cliff Simpson received Bachelors of Science degrees from Southern Utah University in Psychology and Criminal Justice. While working as the program director at a residential treatment center for girls, he realized that he wanted to do therapy and returned to school to get a Master’s Degree in Mental Health counseling from Capella University. His varied life and work experiences have presented him with opportunities from swinging a hammer for 25+ years to working in residential and hospital settings. Addiction treatment is personal for him as he was raised in a home where addiction was prevalent and he now works on his ongoing recovery from alcohol. He is invested in the idea that addiction has an underlying cause and this cause is frequently trauma. He uses various modalities as it applies to treatment including Cognitive Processing Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Psychodrama, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Emotional Focused Therapy. In his spare time, Cliff spends as much time as he can with his family, especially his four granddaughters.

While many treatment professionals say they understand addiction is disease, many still treat it like a moral issue. We recognize that our clients' challenges, disturbances in their personality, and behavior changes are caused by brain changes. Most of our clients have a dual diagnosis, which means they are not only healing from addiction, but also mental health problems such as PTSD, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression and so on. We treat our patients with care, respect and understanding they are sick. Safety is our most important value. When our clients feel safe in our facility, they can start healing from their trauma and improve their lives.
Maple Mountain Recovery Reviews and Ratings Details
The following is based on a combination of Surveys of Alumni, Staff, Loved Ones, and Reviews and Ratings from around the web.
Reviews at a Glance
- Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)
Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.
- Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
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.
- Residential Treatment
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
- Family Program
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
My experience at Maple Mountain Recovery was great. But the best part is all the staff genuinely care. They continually went above and beyond, not only during my stay but to help me find a safe place for after my stay. They have all become an important part of my recovery!Megan R.
The staff at Maple Mountain were compassionate, fully supportive and consistent in their approach and service delivery. I am responsible for my own recovery and deeply personal work which I have engaged in, but the self-empowerment I experience today is only because Maple Mountain provided me space and support to be truly vulnerable. My vulnerability was absolutely met with respect, love, understanding and a level of cooperation which I had not experienced in any other program. I became truly vested in my own treatment and recovery, which I have found to be a key ingredient for a quality recovery, which I believe makes all the difference in my ability to sustain my new, peaceful and fulfilling lifestyle.Patrick R.

Jodi Lycett CMHC - Primary Therapist
I believe that every person is doing the best they can with the circumstances and tools they've accumulated. I love engaging in crucial conversations that help others see a new way to think and behave. People are amazingly resilient. Everyone is capable of change, and my favorite part of being a counselor is watching that change happen. I utilize EMDR, Narrative Therapy, and ACT techniques to help people heal from trauma, anxiety and addiction. Maple Mountain has an atmosphere of love and belonging that creates a safe place to heal. The best part of my job is knowing that my clients are taken care of and loved here at Maple Mountain. Clients are able to make progress quickly here, and it is beautiful to watch. I look forward to working with you!
