Top 10 Treatment Questions

1.) How many clients does the facility allow?

Most drug rehab centers in Utah ignore current research which states group sizes should not exceed 8-10 participants. Zion Recovery Center’s group sizes never exceed 5 members for inpatient and 10 for outpatient.

2.) How does the facility provide individual therapy?

Many Utah drug rehab programs allow paraprofessionals to administer an individual session, or do not provide individual therapy as often as needed. Zion Recovery Center’s small group sizes benefit each client by giving them the potential to meet individually with a Master level clinician up to 8 hours each day.

3.) What is the facility guarantee?

It is important that the substance abuse treatment facility that you attend provides a life-time guarantee that allows clients to come back free of charge for a tune-up whenever necessary. Zion Recovery Center stands behind it’s program by offering a life-time guarantee that allows clients to return at no additional charge as long as they successfully complete our residential inpatient and outpatient aftercare treatment programs in their entirety.  

4.) What credentials do the staff have that work directly with the clients?

Although state licensed Utah addiction centers are required to have a clinical director supervise the facility; you would be surprised who is actually involved in the client’s regular schedule. Make sure the client’s daily care is provided by Master level clinicians that specialize in substance abuse. Zion Recovery Center’s individual, group, and family therapy sessions are always conducted by Master level clinicians that specialize in substance abuse.

5.) How does the facility provide aftercare?

Treatment centers in Utah often provide aftercare through their inpatient drug rehab which forces the client to repeat material they have already learned. Aftercare must be catered to the client’s specific and individual needs and not what is convenient for the facility. Zion Recovery Center’s residential alcohol or drug rehab aftercare is provided through our Day Treatment or Outpatient Treatment services that are completely separate from our residential treatment center. This means new treatment plans, study materials, and goals are created and updated regularly according to the client’s personal needs.

6.) How does the facility provide family therapy?

The majority of Utah rehab centers rarely offer family therapy. For the programs that do, it often takes place in a large group room setting where multiple family members sit together. Due to the lack of privacy and awkward feelings from the abnormal group size; issues at-hand may remain unaddressed. Find a rehab in Utah that offers weekly family therapy conducted strictly between the client and their immediate family. Zion Recovery Center’s family therapy is offered weekly and is conducted by a Master level therapist in a private setting with just the client and their family.

7.) How does the facility measure their success?

Most all rehabs in Utah claim a high performance of success but do not have established methods of both measuring and proving it. At Zion Recovery Center, monthly outcome questionnaires are performed to follow their progress and to make the appropriate adjustments as needed. Participation is rated daily and we track our clients long after they complete treatment as they are inseparably connected as life-long alumni.

8.) Is the facility co-ed?

When genders are combined simultaneously in a residential inpatient setting, it can be very distracting for the client to focus solely on their recovery. Predominantly all Utah drug rehab centers are co-ed for monetary gain having the ability to admit all potential clients. It is best to locate an addiction treatment center that focuses primarily on mastering substance abuse/dual-diagnosis on a gender specific basis to ensure the clients receive the best possible outcome. Zion Recovery Center’s inpatient services never operate on a co-ed basis.       

9.) What approaches are used to help the clients with their addiction?

There are literally hundreds of different treatment methods available for Utah treatment centers to use. Find out just how diverse the recovery program is to ensure treatment is being catered to each client on a specific and individual level. Be careful of facilities that attempt to treat multiple addictions and mental disorders (sex, gambling, eating disorder, schizophrenia, etc.) in the same group setting. It is extremely important to find a facility that treats the specific addiction that you or your loved one is battling. Zion Recovery Center prides itself with the ability to match the right treatment for the right client.

10.) What happens in a normal day at the facility?

Many rehabilitation centers in Utah cost thousands of dollars per month and substitute therapy by having their clients attend local 12-Step meetings (AA, NA, LDS 12-Step, etc.). These self-help meetings are available to the public absolutely free of charge and are conducted by non-professional individuals. When selecting a treatment center, make sure they provide quality addiction care from licensed providers who consistently nurture an environment that allows the client to feel safe enough to finally heal and recover by disclosing their underlying issues. Zion Recovery Center’s clients open up rapidly and with their newfound vulnerability, it is important to reward them consistently by providing a healthy mix of fun and relaxation with the best therapeutic structure daily. Zion Recovery Center sets themselves apart from other treatment facilities through their strict policy for all staff and administration to follow the same rules and guidelines set for the clients. We actually live the healthy lifestyle our clients are encouraged to learn and practice; and therefore we provide and model positive examples on a daily basis.
