At Recovery Ways, our mission is to provide the most cost-effective and accessible substance abuse treatment to as many people who are in need as possible. We are committed to an integrated quality of care that is comprehensive, person-centered and recovery-focused. Here are a few reasons why choosing Recovery Ways for substance abuse treatment and inpatient drug rehab is an excellent decision for you, your family and your sobriety.

State of the Art Facilities & Modern Accommodations

Our inpatient, sober living and PHP residences provide patients with a comfortable, safe and secure environment that encourages healing and growth. Our four facilities located near Salt Lake City are newly constructed and built for the sole purpose of helping those suffering from addiction and mental health issues. Our rooms are comfortably furnished with modern amenities, and, while we are coed, men and women live on separate floors to help them focus on treatment.

Competitively Priced Quality Treatment

Recovery Ways provides effective and affordable dual-diagnosis addiction treatment. Our business office and admission coordinators will investigate insurance coverage and verify your benefits for you.

Proper Accreditation & Licensing

Recovery Ways exceeds expectations and is properly licensed by the state of Utah to perform addiction treatment services. We are also accredited by JCAHO, the highest standard for hospitals and treatment centers to attain, receiving their gold seal of national quality approval. Recovery Ways is also an accredited member of NAATP (the National Association of Treatment Providers) adhering to a strict code of ethics towards treatment services, facility quality, marketing, and advertising. Read more about our accreditation.

Communication with Family & Friends

Family involvement is vital for a patient to stay sober. Because of this, our clinical staff is in constant contact with families and friends, as approved by the patient. We also encourage people to call the treatment team if they have questions and allow patients the opportunity to call loved ones during free time.

If you are trying to reach a patient or clinician, please call our Brunswick location at (801) 326-5180.

Qualified Staff

Our staff is committed to an integrated quality of care that is comprehensive, person-centered and recovery-focused. At Recovery Ways our medical team is directed by a psychiatrist who has expertise in addiction, as well as mental health illnesses such as depression, anxiety, and bi-polar disorder. Our lead therapists are masters level clinicians with experience working with substance abuse and other addictions. All clinical staff are licensed by the State of Utah and are in good standing.

Post Treatment Support

After completing our residential program, support is available for continued recovery. Recovery Ways has a 60 to 90 day Intensive Outpatient Program that meets 3 times a week. Our Aftercare program meets once a week. Alumni come to check in with each other, learn about relapse prevention, and receive support. All of these programs are clinically proven to help people maintain and succeed in their addiction-free lifestyle. We also offer an active alumni program. Building a strong sober network is vital after treatment. Recovery Way’s alumni program makes building a supportive recovery community easy and fun with regular events and outings.

Client Success

Our groups are centered around the concept of healing the mind, body, and spirit. They are designed to provide patients with the information and skills needed to stay sober after treatment. This includes educational groups, process groups, and involvement in meetings. Our addiction treatment program includes a minimum of two private counseling sessions per week and a family/couples session once a week. We also believe that a person’s spirituality is an integral part of their well-being and success in rehab. We embrace all religions and include spirituality as a part of each patient’s treatment. We believe a patient must have a spiritual awakening to be successful in recovery. We accommodate patients, as much as possible, to participate in their religious practices. As a supplement to a patient’s spiritual beliefs, a 12-Step model along with other programs of recovery are used as a foundation for our program.

Personalized & Appropriate Treatment

Recovery Ways programming is based on ASAM recommended treatment standards for a residential level of care. ASAM is The American Society of Addiction Medicine who advocate and promote appropriate roles and guidelines for treating those with addiction. Our group content is founded on clinical research, effective for the treatment of alcoholism, drug abuse and other substance abuse and addiction issues.

Recovery Ways therapies are based on, but not limited to, the Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing therapeutic models. Our staff psychiatrist is available to address both dual diagnosis and other mental health issues. Our varying levels of addiction treatment address patient care from start to finish: residential (or inpatient drug rehab), PHP, sober living as well as intensive outpatient. Our programs equip patients with the tools necessary to lead a healthy life free of substance abuse.

Unique Treatment Programs

Recovery Ways offers traditional and effective methods of treating addiction and substance abuse issues. We also offer unique forms of treatment such as occupational therapy, sensory integration, sober recreation therapy, and place an emphasis on fitness and healthy living.


Occupational Therapy

Individuals who have suffered long-term with substance abuse may have missed out on acquiring life skills that most of us may take for granted. Our occupational therapy program gives our patients the opportunity to gain work and life experience to help them live fuller, richer lives in recovery.


Sensory Integration

Two of our Salt Lake City locations are equipped with sensory rooms. These rooms invite addicts to engage in activities that help them to feel good and to focus on strengths, interests, and personal self-care through the use of sensory input.


Sober Recreation Therapy

Being located in Utah, Recovery Ways takes full advantage of the surrounding natural beauty and incorporates it into our addiction treatment model. We offer a unique recreation therapy that includes frequent gym visits, emphasis on physical fitness and outdoor activities, and most importantly learning new ways to have fun outside of treatment without the inclusion of drugs or alcohol.

Are You Ready for Treatment?

Making the decision to seek treatment for addiction and mental health issues is the first step towards a happy, healthy life free from drugs or alcohol. Our admission coordinators are here to listen and answer any questions you have about the treatment process.

Family Participation

Families are a key part of recovery. Our family program includes opportunities for loved-ones to learn more about the disease of addiction and how to support recovery. We encourage each family to learn and become a part of their loved one’s process.

Sensory Integration

Assisting patients to learn to self-regulate through the use of sensory-based strategies is an effective tool in recovery. Through the use of our state-of-the-art multi-sensory rooms, patients will rediscover the power of being centered in their bodies and strategies for stress management.

Recreation Therapy

Recreation therapy enables patients to discover and recreate themselves while practicing skills in a safe, supportive environment. Patients learn to enjoy their leisure time by participating in constructive activities, which may increase their self-sufficiency, competence and autonomy.
