Utah Addiction Centers 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
- Equine Therapy
A form of animal therapy, equine therapy involves visiting, working with and sometimes riding horses as a way to create a metaphoric relationship that leads to life-altering insights.
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.
- Medical Detoxification
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.
- 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.
Utah Addiction Centers has given me a new approach to my addiction problems, providing new ideas and perspective to help me reach my goals. The staff and counselors made me feel welcome and provided me with the tools and encouragement to break my current thought process and begin to think and act in a more productive and healthy way. I owe them everything and encourage others to give them a chance to help.CS
I can’t say enough how much I owe to all the counselors and staff. With your help, I am free from addiction and for the first time in a long time, I have hope for the future.MB

Thank you for everything all of you have done for my son and our family. I am starting to believe that the nightmare that has plagued us for the past few years is finally over. I can't convey how good it feels to have hope again!JH
What I learned while at UAC, I will carry with me for the rest of my life. And I am forever grateful for the experiences I had there. I feel like I should be thanking you for saving my life, thank you!AC
