The State of Utah is famous for the vastness of its deserts and the rugged beauty of the Wasatch Range Mountains. The Wasatch Range is the western edge of the Rocky Mountains, and the eastern edge of the Great Basin. These starkly contrasting landscapes dotted with the contemporary skylines of Salt Lake City, Ogden and Provo make Utah a popular vacation destination.

Although steeped in the Latter Day Saints culture of an alcohol-free lifestyle, in 2015, Utah had the seventh highest rate of alcohol-related deaths in the United States. Along with alcohol-related deaths, Utah residents are also fighting addiction to prescription opioids. In 2016, the Utah Department of Health reported that 6 people die each week from prescription opioid overdose in the state.

But there is help for Utah residents struggling with alcohol or opioid addiction. The following rehab facilities offer treatment options to meet you or your loved one’s unique needs:
