Treatment Methods

You need to receive a screening to be eligible for treatment. If your screening indicates that you would benefit from treatment, you will be referred to a treatment program. At the screening you will be given the contact information for one of our treatment programs and placed on a waiting list.  You will need to check-in with the program weekly to stay on the waiting list.


Group Therapy

Group therapy creates a supportive atmosphere where women can openly share their fears, triumphs and personal issues. These groups provide a place to share personal issues in a supportive, nurturing environment where the therapists will facilitate processing and encourage discussion about addiction, recovery and common issues experienced by those in recovery. Overall, group therapy will allow clients the opportunity to open up and be honest with others, to reach out for support, give support to others, and to use their voice in the process of recovery.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy offers a safe, supportive place to learn and grow in the recovery process without judgment. As the client processes through difficult issues, they are taught and encouraged to use new and different coping skills to replace negative coping mechanisms they may have relied on in the past. Each client works with a licensed therapist who specializes in substance use disorders. Together they work one-on-one to explore and understand specific issues, struggles, and the recovery process. The therapist forges a strong relationship of trust with the client and monitors progress throughout the program.

The therapists counsel using a variety of therapeutic modalities to help achieve counseling gains.

Co-occurring Disorders

At aDDAPT we know that substance use is often an attempt to cope with various issues, struggles, and trials a person may have experienced in their life. Therefore, in addition to treating the substance use disorder, counselors at aDDAPT also treat various issues and co-occurring disorders including but not limited to depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, ADHD, eating disorders, grief/loss, adoption, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other traumas, domestic violence, relationship conflict, self-esteem issues, etc. If co-occuring mental health disorders are more complex or pressing, you may be referred to our Dual Diagnosis program or referred to Wasatch Mental Health or another mental health provider.

Case Management

Utah County aDDAPT recognizes the impact addiction has on many areas of one’s life and the need to address those issues.

The main focus of case management services is referring and linking the client with needed resources, education, and building individualized skills for recovery.
