ABOUT CHATEAU RECOVERY IN MIDWAY, UT
From a leafy street in small-town Midway, in the foothills of Utah's Wasatch Mountains, Chateau Recovery treats adult men and women struggling with substance use disorder or a dual diagnosis. The center offers a multidisciplinary residential treatment program, but medical detox is not available on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The length of treatment varies according to the client's needs, but Chateau Recovery can accommodate residents for up to 90 days — positioning the center among the 26.4 percent of Utah-based facilities that offer residential treatment lasting longer than 30 days.
To be admitted, clients may either call the facility directly or fill out an inquiry form on the Chateau Recovery website. The center's program pursues a "whole self" approach to addiction recovery, drawing from evidence-based clinical practices, extensive holistic offerings, and 12-step and/or SMART Recovery principles — though the center stresses that it avoids applying the 12-steps or any other program as a "one size fits all" approach. In facilitating the 12-Steps at all, the center is among the 66.1 percent of Utah-based facilities that use the program.
To modify destructive behavioral and thinking patterns, the center uses evidence-based methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and rational-emotive behavioral therapy (REBT). Each week, residents participate in two individual therapy sessions and five group therapy sessions.
Outside of traditional therapy, residents can participate in a therapeutic canine training program, yoga three times a week, outdoor exploration and sporting events. The facility also offers an "addict to athlete" sports training program. More traditional holistic methods in use at the facility include meditation and art therapy.
The treatment team at Chateau Recovery includes a board-certified doctor, a registered nurse, a social worker, and substance misuse counselors. The four individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date on the staff all gave perfect five-star ratings.
