I was inpatient here two years ago, the experience was terrible, like others say it is like a prison. After I continued after care treatment because I like one of the physicians. I paid upfront each t...


All about the money! Patients are often released before they are ready or held longer than they should be. Se. Please go somewhere else for help!


I was recently released from this facility and it was horrific. The nurses and techs were good, but the Physician's Assistant who oversaw my treatment was harsh and lacked compassion while the therapi...


I needed a low fat and no dairy diet because of medical problems and not one thing was done so that I can eat even though I told staff multiple times. I barely ate while I was there. They don't give y...


I was able to get in the same day. A downfall was that it was COLD!! I was given medication to assist in withdrawals and cravings right away.


Salt lake behavior health have the best staff! They are all compassionate and caring. Plus, they offer rides to get to and from Iop, breakfast, and a safe environment. Great place to help those with ...

Though there were a couple staff members who were sensitive and supportive, the overall experience was terrifying and brutalizing and the care was completely inappropriate. There are just not enough r...


Nightmare! I can\'t believe I had to pay for the horrid treatment I received. First of all, the female physician\'s assistant that did my quick evaluation before I was able to see the psychiatrist sh...


My daughter was in this facility for 3 days. It was traumatic for her. The nursing supervisor was excellent and the psychiatrist was good but we will never go back!!!


Counseling was great but family involvement was a weakness. Very good facility for mental illness treatment.


I went in because of an ativan overdose which caused extreme anger. They treated me with kindness and respect. Group, Recreational and one on one therapy were amazing.


This place is horrific! I have never seen anything like the madness that went on i this institution. Notice how the good reviews come from employees? Believe me, it is a terrible place if you are me...


I was shocked and appalled at the way some of the nurses and cna staff treated some of us. At one point I felt worse while in there then I did before I went there to get help. Some of the staff are...


Horrible facility. Please do not put someone you love in the hands of this facility. They will need more counseling when and if they get out than they needed when they were admitted.


They made it worse.

Areas of Focus
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.

Process Abuse Treatment

Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.
