Drug Addiction Treatment Program

Steps Recovery Center recognizes how vital the mind, body, and spirit are in their connection to the whole person. We take a holistic approach to treating those with drug addiction and relatable disorders that may contribute to their substance abuse; this includes treating the whole person, and find that it tends to be more successful, especially since addiction affects every aspect of a person’s life. With a customized and individualized program, a holistic approach just makes sense. It affords an opportunity to meet the patient’s physical and psychological needs and allows them to engage physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Take That First Step

What is Drug Addiction?

Drug addiction is a disorder of the brain that is characterized by compulsive engagement of substances that elicit rewarding stimuli, despite adverse consequences. It is a chronic, relapsing disorder that can have long-lasting effects in the brain. It’s both a complex brain disorder and a mental illness. Addiction is the most severe form of a full spectrum of substance abuse disorders and is a medical illness caused by repeated abuse of one or more substances. (Drugabuse.gov)

What Drug Addiction Treatment Entails

The first step in recovering from any addiction is to acknowledge there is a problem in the first place. Once you or a loved one accepts that fact, then you can move forward to recovery. What that looks like is different for everyone. There are many different modalities to treating addiction and involves a customized program that involves a holistic approach. At Steps Recovery Center, we treat people with addiction to methamphetamine, marijuana, crack, cocaine, and prescription drug abuse in Utah. We also treat:
  • Fentanyl addiction
  • Hydrocodone addiction
  • Methadone addiction
  • Meth addiction
  • Opiate addiction
  • Percocet addiction
  • Oxycodone addiction
  • Codeine addiction
  • Benzo addiction
Drug addiction treatment can be inpatient, outpatient, or done in a hospital setting. Medication is typically involved in minimizing withdrawal symptoms and is done under careful supervision.

Medical Detox

Before you can journey through the treatment process of addiction, the first thing you need to do is detox from the drug or drugs in your system. This can take days or weeks, depending on the type of drugs and the duration of them. It’s a time where you are monitored round-the-clock, so you remain safe. Medication for detoxing includes Methadone and Buprenorphine (Suboxone, Subutex, and Zubsolv). To reduce cravings after medical detox, you can also take Naltrexone.

During this phase, medical personnel also address any medical issues and administer any additional medication if necessary. You can also choose to be under anesthesia for detoxification, but there are some cautions to consider and are best discussed with your doctor.

Residential Customized Treatment

If you decide to get treated in a residential treatment center, a customized treatment program will be designed and implemented for you. This includes addressing underlying mental health issues as well. As part of the treatment options, you may participate in the following recovery services once you’re past detoxification:
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • 12-step Program
  • Relapse Prevention
  • EMDR
  • Mindfulness therapy
  • Reiki Therapy
  • Stress Management Therapy
  • Yoga Therapy
  • Exercise Therapy
  • Group Therapy
  • Individual Therapy
At Steps, we know the importance of treating the mind, body, and spirit when helping people to recover from drug addiction. Our individualized programs are designed for the best outcome possible.

Steps Recovery is the place you go if you want a caring and understanding program. They have helped me gain knowledge about myself and what I want/need to do. The staff there can relate and help you through core issues and they push you to do better because being in this program you know you can do big and amazing things. Also the therapists there are awesome and walk with you through struggles of life and give you the tools you truly need. Overall this place is an amazing opportunity and you’d be missing out on a lot if you chose to not at least try this program.

The staff and facility is amazing- Couldn’t ask for anything better. The program is well rounded with rec activities, equine therapy, gender therapy, group therapy, individual and couples therapy, and also attends various 12 Step support groups such as AA or NA. They also have family therapy and processing with options for individual settings or in a group. These help families understand what their loved ones who suffer from addiction is going through and how to support them, and also gives them their own support system.

This place saved my life! The therapists were very helpful, friendly and really cared about the clients wellbeing. The tech’s were alway helpful with meds and anything that was needed. House manager was amazing, had high expectations on job duties, and kept a very clean organized atmosphere. Food was always amazing. I never went hungry! The information and skills that I have learned and applied to my life are priceless. If you’re not willing to put forth the work to change your life this is not your place, but if you are this is the first Step to take. I Love everyone at Steps. Thank you for all your help

I’d been to other recovery centers before but this one was the best, it stuck because I was willing to do the work, and with the help I received from staff I am now celebrating a year of sobriety in a couple of days. Update; I’m now 18 months sober as of yesterday and I still keep in touch with my steps family. The lessons I learned at steps will stick with me for the rest of my life. Thank you for giving me my life back.
