    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.

I don't even know where to start - I just completed 60 days of residential in-patient treatment at UAC, and it was a life-changing... life-SAVING blessing to me. Prior to entering the program, my life had become completely unmanageable, and after a year and half of trying to work recovery, I severely relapsed and my life came crashing down. I was broken. I'd destroyed my family relationships and trust, lost my job, and faced potentially significant legal consequences. I didn't know where to turn, but I knew I needed much more help than I'd had access to prior. So I started researching several residential treatment centers/programs across the country, and eventually I narrowed my options down to just a handful of places that seemed like a good fit - solid programs with qualified, expert therapists that would push me out of my comfort zone and hopefully help me develop the recovery tools I lacked. I spoke with the program and clinical directors of each of these centers, and I KNEW that Utah Addiction Centers was where I needed to be. I can't explain it any other way than to say that as I spoke with them, there was an instant feeling of peace and calm that came over me - it just felt "right". I knew I needed to be there. I came through the door feeling terrified, broken, lost, and not even sure my life could ever really be filled with hope, happiness, recovery and change. I had lost all self-respect, self-worth, and any shred of confidence in myself -- this was literally my last hope. For the first few days I felt overwhelmed and kind of shell-shocked, but immediately they put me to work, pushing me way out of my comfort zone. As I began identifying and working through some of the traumas in my life, meeting with a staff member in individual therapy sessions, and working in group sessions with the other residents - an amazing group of some of the most impressive, sincere, authentic, humble, vulnerable, supportive, loving and non-judgmental people I have ever known - little by little I began to feel hope again, I began to be able to see myself through God's eyes again, rather than through the lens of all my failures and disappointments, poor choices and mistakes, and I began to develop a solid basis of recovery which made me feel stronger and stronger every day. I don't know how they do it but the MOTIVATION behind what they do is very clear -- they absolutely 100% CARE about the people they treat, and they treat us with love, respect, compassion and empathy. Yes, they push us hard too... incredibly, uncomfortably, and even painfully hard at times, but they do so out of love and genuine concern. I'm so grateful to have felt that from each of the Staff, and to have witnessed them treating my fellow group members in recovery with the same love and compassion. They are all incredibly qualified, dedicated and skilled at what they do, but they also sincerely care about each client that comes through the door, and when a client is willing to work hard and is dedicated to his/her own recovery, the UAC clinical team and staff bend over backwards to help that individual receive the individualized treatment and care that he/she needs. It really upsets me to hear or read comments from people who try to cast doubt on the intentions or motivations of the UAC staff, or try to insinuate that any of them are are "in it for the money" - that is absolutely, unequivocally false. I know this first-hand. If you are SERIOUS about getting help, if you are WILLING to work harder than you've likely ever worked before, and if you are COMMITTED to your recovery, there is no better residential treatment program than Utah Addiction Centers, and no better clinical team than the amazing staff here. Period. I owe these people my life, because they literally gave it back to me. If you or a loved one need help, do whatever it takes to get here. It can save your life.

The staff. The therapists are amazing. They know their stuff and are able to teach skills and explain the disease of addiction. They help you explore coping skills, treatment, and recovery. The staff really care about clients and want everyone to succeed.They focus on trauma and get down to the real issues(s) of why someone is acting out the way that they are. They work intensely with the individual and as a group.The therapist are trained in EMDR. There's equine therapy every week. UAC has a really good program and treats the root of the issue.They offer Aftercare also so that when you graduate the program you can come back to groups. I would definitely recommend this facility to anyone who is looking to get help with any addictions, depression, self harm, eating disorders, etc.

they have a great team that complements each other's strengths and offers a diverse recovery for the client with their best interest at the core. A downfall was not enough time spent with the horses, the weather was a hindrance though. i did not care for the Sunday meeting either, my opinion though as i am not lds. this was not a legal condition for me, my choice to attend was simply a desire to get the help i needed. i was accepted with understanding and a team that was considerate of my situation and a desire to help. i was offered an opportunity and am grateful i chose uac to help me become sober again. thank you uac for all you do for the people you take in to help in their struggles.
