Specialization

  • Residential Addiction Treatment
    Acqua Recovery is a sanctuary where people come to stop the misuse of drugs and alcohol and begin a life in recovery. Tucked away in a peaceful, 12-acre property, Acqua offers peaceful meditative spots, relaxing water features, and a host of amenities promoting mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being. Here, you will rest, reset your focus, and rediscover the beauty of life without drugs and alcohol. At the same time, our evidence-based, trauma-informed approach to addiction treatment ensures that you'll experience the highest levels of professional care and treatment for your disease.
  • Personalized Treatment
    Addiction is a complicated disease that requires a sophisticated, customized approach. We draw from each patient’s experiences, preferences, personality, needs, and values to develop an appropriate course of treatment. We combine medically-informed therapies with experiential and meditative activities to deliver a holistic recovery experience.
  • Experienced Professionals
    Acqua Recovery is proud to have several Master-level clinicians on staff. These experts use their many years of education and experience to deliver treatment that works. Other staff members are caring and connecting. Many are in recovery themselves, or have family members that have made the journey. Together, our team is a welcoming and effective recovery community - the perfect mix of science and sanctuary.
  • Addiction Recovery Coaching Program
    Everyone in recovery deserves a guardian angel. Meet our recovery coaches. Our addiction recovery coaching program is truly one-of-a-kind. At Acqua, each client is teamed up with a nationally-certified recovery coach that will build a relationship of trust to support the recovery process. The coaches closely follow each client's progress during and after treatment, providing encouragement, feedback, and the opportunity for adjustments along the way. Reconnecting in a healthy way with other individuals is a very important part of recovery. Our recovery coaching program is a great way to create the sense of connection and accountability that fosters lasting addiction recovery.
  • Aftercare
    During treatment, you will begin to understand your patterns of thinking and action. Our Masters-level clinicians will help you find the root causes of your addiction and help you begin to heal them. For many, though, that healing must be a lifelong process. As you come to the end of your stay at Acqua, our team will work with you to identify appropriate next steps. Perhaps you may want to enter an Intensive Outpatient Program here in Utah, or maybe a sober living is right for you. It might even be time for you to fly home and get back to your family and career. No matter what your vision for the future, our team will ensure that you are set up for success: continued healing and recovery.
  • Alumni Program
    Located near Park City, Utah, and not far from Salt Lake City and Provo, Acqua Recovery is a hub of continued recovery in Utah. Many alumni return for weekly 12-Step meetings and other community activities. There also is an active, private online community where alumni of our program can connect and offer each other encouragement in their new lives. We encourage continued connection between alumni, so they can support and inspire each other to build upon the lessons of their time in our program.

Sadly, I had to come to Aqua twice, as I suffered a major relapse after a year and a half. However, Aqua is an amazing place. If you are willing to put in the work, they are willing to challenge you. If you need a softer approach, they can do that as well. I took my addiction head on the second time and was challenged to stay longer, I wish I had. Their outreach is terrific and during my relapse, they were ready to welcome me with open arms and zero judgement. Though you attend AA and NA meetings, you choose you recovery path, for me it was Refuge Recovery. The food is amazing and often you are a part of preparing it! Eat breakfast looking over the waterfall as the deer munch away and the ducks dabble in the pond below. They keep you busy from morning until night; and for me at least, that is a good thing. Idle hands....... I rocked my recovery as hard as I could. I saw others not do so well, if you go to Acqua and lament the way the staff don't allow you to "do what you want," or "treat you like a child." Well my friend, just remember how well your choices have gone so far; there is a reason many of the employees here are in Recovery themselves. They've made decisions that have led to continued sobriety; perhaps listen to what they have to say. Leave the ego at home and you will blossom here; drag it along and you only hurt yourself. The facilities are amazing, the was a Mill in the Mid to Late 1800's and you can feel the history. The beds are amazing, gas fireplaces in your room, waterfall showers, jetted tubs and some amazing views! The grounds are stellar, with paths meandering here in there allowing for privacy when needed. There are geese, swans, ducks and songbirds galore. Groups are held often and can be challenging but also life-altering. Again, leave your ego at home and you'll be amazed what your fellow "Aquanauts" will teach you. I appreciate the fact that Aqua doesn't handle these groups with kid gloves. I've been in 2 IOP's and the groups are sterile and stifled.........not at Acqua. Here they encourage you to let your true emotions come to the surface. It can be hard to hear some things about yourself; there are often tears, but I found these peer comments to be more powerful than I could have imagined. Come ready to learn. There is high turnover, but I've come to learn this is common in Rehab facilities. If Aqua is reading this, my only slightly negative comment is to spend some more funds on Recreational Activities. I know we are in rehab, not on vacation, but I was amazed at how the group was always brought closer together during Rec. If you are looking at Residential Rehab my friend, don't hesitate, strike while the iron is hot. Save your life, act now. I can solidly recommend Acqua. ND
