Testimonials

  • "My experience with Deer Hollow has been amazing. I came in as a broken down, scared, tore up, lost woman. Through the love and patience from the staff at Deer Hollow I was able to grow and learn to be a member of society. The staff is so willing to listen, give advice, laugh, be serious, and everything in between. Whatever I needed they were able to provide that for me."
  • "Words cannot express just how amazing this facility really is! I have been to a million other facilities (at least it feels like that) and I finally can say I have found healing! Do yourself a favor and schedule a tour and see for yourself why these guys are so good at what they do!"
  • "My journey didn’t end with Deer Hollow when I coined out. I get a call from someone at least once a month to check on me and make sure I am doing OK. I also call in a lot when I am having a hard time or need to hear a familiar voice and I am never turned away. Deer Hollow has become my safe place, and my family. I couldn’t have picked a better treatment center to start my journey in. I have a relationship with my children again. I will forever be grateful for what Deer Hollow gave me."
  • "I have severe mental health issues and finally found peace from the help of Deer Hollow! I loved their Bio Sound and Sensory Room sessions as well as their neurofeedback! These guys have it all! I can finally have peace thanks to them!"
  • "I was at a point where I didn't feel like I deserved another chance and Deer Hollow gave me a chance. I was there for 37 days and was able to work on my self and get a clear head. The staff helped me out a ton and talked to me like I was a human being. I played on the Deer Hollow softball team, which allowed me to meet sober people and learn how to have sober fun. I feel blessed to be apart of the Deer Hollow family."
  • "As the second clinic that I've been to after struggling through my last relapse...I knew that I could not risk going to a facility that did not have 100% everything I needed to heal and become the best version of myself that I can be! I felt like the staff at Deer Hollow truly understood me as a person suffering and gave me the love and patience I needed in order to finally heal. Plus, my whole family loved being involved and the hospitality of the staff.”

At a time when my son was at rock bottom, we were fortunate to find Deer Hollow Recovery. We have tried many treatment centers but the approach they utilize appears to be geared towards figuring out why the individual wants to use and learning to adjust behavior and thinking. The therapists were excellent. Highly recommend completing the inpatient program followed by the outpatient program/sober living to maximize the benefit of the program. More expensive than some other treatment facilities but worth every dollar.

A little over four months ago I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Deer Hollow Sober Living and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). I had actually attended a different residential treatment facility in Salt Lake for roughly two months and was informed that their sober living was being closed. This turned out to be one the most impactful and positive things that happened to me in early recovery as it ultimately led me to Deer Hollow. I now have just over six months sober and can attest that their entire team, from ownership to clinicians to program coordinators to house managers, genuinely care about the well-being and lasting recovery of their clients. They maintain a long-term focus to help ensure every client has the best chance of ongoing success after you leave the structured environment of sober living / IOP, which from my past experience is a rare quality among treatment programs. Being in an IOP program especially can sometimes seem monotonous and repetitive after a while but Deer Hollow's unique approach to this process kept me engaged and allowed me to continually learn new things about myself, my addiction, and how to best maintain my sobriety going forward. Also, many of the staff members and alumni that participate in the aftercare are incredibly active in local recovery groups which definitely made me feel like I was already apart of these groups from day one. I’m grateful that I found Deer Hollow Sober Living / IOP and would recommend it to anyone entering that phase of their recovery process.

I got the opportunity to go through Deer Hollow when it first opened. I had been through treatment before but I had never had the oppurtunity to attend a true dual diagnosis treatment center. The therapy was really hard and intense but worth every second for the growth that came out of it. I stay involved with alumni activities to this day and the program has grown beautifully over the past 2 years. I would recommend it to anyone struggling with addiction or mental health.

When I arrived at Deer Hollow I was completely broken. I have struggled with alcoholism my entire adult life and I knew I needed to find a solution to my problem. The staff at IOP and Sober Living immediately started not only telling me what I should do but also showing me through their own actions. It has now been almost eight months since I arrived in Utah to go to treatment and my life is amazing. I can honestly say Deer Hollow helped save my life.

Deer Hollow is by far the best treatment facility I have encountered. After suffering a 4 year opiate addiction, in and out of multiple outpatient and residential treatment centers that did not seem to work, I was ready to give up hope. That was until I found Deer Hollow... a recovery center unlike anything I had ever experienced. From day one, the therapists and staff made me feel comfortable and safe. I could talk to them about anything and everything and never once felt judged. I could tell that they genuinely cared about each and every person individually rather than treating us like just another insurance number. The one-on-one and group therapy sessions were highly effective in getting to the root of the problem. I also enjoyed the recreational outings we did often. It was nice learning how to have fun again without the use of drugs and alcohol. I would recommend Deer Hollow to anyone who is battling addiction or knows someone who is. It was the start to a whole new life for me and I am forever grateful.

I stayed at both Deer Hollow residential as well as their sober living houses. The staff at Deer Hollow really changed my life and perspective. I came in feeling completely broken. I was treated with the utmost dignity and respect. Everyone from the floor staff, the cooks, the therapist and even the owner were very hands on and caring. They really made you feel at home, not including that the food was amazing. I couldn't have asked for a better place. Deer hollow really helped me work through some things. And for that I am eternally greatful. I have remained sober since I have left and I honestly don't think I could have done it without them.

I would highly recommend this facility to anyone with an addiction or battling PTSD. During my stay I felt safe And empowered to voice my problems with addiction and PTSD the staff treated me very well during my stay and the class subjects were very on point. The out of house activities were fun and kept a good balance between the course work and physical activity self care. I loved my time at Deer Hollow and have recommended this facility to anyone that has had similar issues like I have.

Deer Hollow is AMAZING! I honestly can’t put into words how grateful I am towards all the staff, and all my peers throughout this last 5 months. I’ve been to many treatment centers and Deer Hollow wins!! (Not that being to many treatment centers is something to brag about lol). When I came to Deer Hollow I was completely broken and hopeless. I didn’t want to do life anymore. With time and hard work Deer Hollow helped me work through my problems and brokenness. Slowly all the weight on my chest lifted and the tornado in my head calmed down. I have a life to live and I actually want to live it! I know that I am still here for a reason. I have had such a great experience here an I have met so many friends that I know consider family along the way. I know that I am not alone! There is something different about this place that I can’t explain. I can truthfully say that Deer Hollow has saved my life, and only god knows where I’d be if I hadn’t had this second chance at life. Thank you Deer Hollow

I was a patient at the Deer Hollow Inpatient and Outpatient Treatment Center. I have the life today that I do because I was in a safe environment at Deer Hollow. There I was able to break down and work through my emotions and PTSD, that I have had for so many years. The staff is amazing and supportive and still to this day keeps in contact with me. I was treated with EMDR and was able to get through so much. I would definitely recommend this Treatment Facility to anyone needing help.

I was a patient at Deer Hollow in 2015 and I am still sober today. Deer Hollow was a huge part of my recovery, guiding me and helping me heal. Inpatient rehab is not easy, and it shouldn't be when real deep emotional work is being done I believe, and though I did not always like Deer Hollow I am grateful for the staff, who stuck with me and didn't give up on me when I wanted to give up on myself. One of the perks of being at this facility was even on the hardest days at least the environment was beautiful, maybe you'd spot a deer, and the cooks were very accommodating to my vegetarian diet.

i needed help because i have depression and was raped a ton and i went in, i did an assessment and told them i wanted to do outpatient because thats what i need and my body. they kept trying to push “ residential” on me.. i clearly said NO... i have children and a job, they downright refused to see me or treat me because i was refusing to go to residential. They thought they knew what was best for me and they didnt even meet with me.. i met with two people there and didnt even tell them everything.... they have NO right telling me what they think i need when i am the victim... I’m doing what i feel is best for myself... my family and everyone around me.. i cannot do residential. I am not comfortable doing that. I am the one who is asking for help.. they are trying to get me to do something that severe over DEPRESSION. they were very forceful and demanding.. they brought their kids to work with them... it distracted them.. it felt like I wasn’t really cared about and my treatement... they wanted more money.. they were very forceful. I am a mother... i dont do drugs and anyone who does do that with children, shouldn’t be allowed kids. do not go to this place. they do not care about you as a patient. they just want to make money. They were extreemly forceful and unwelcoming for both myself and my mother in law.

I have had nothing but good experience with deer hollow inpatient as well as their aftercare program and sober living. I have been to other treatment centers and this has been the only one that proved to be effective. The staff is second to none and they truly care about the patients rather than their money. They have treated me like family since the beginning of my stay and continue to provide support for me after i have graduated and gone on with my life. The loving quarters are comfortable and the food was fantastic. I will be forever grateful for Deer Hollow and the employees they have working for them.

Deer Hollow recovery has been so helpful to me, not only was I able to work on my addiction but they allowed me to work on past events that have been stuck in my mind for a long time. I have tried other recovery centers before but none of them went this in depth. I am truly grateful to be a part of the Deer Hollow family.

This place changed my life for the better. I went there for a month over a year ago and everything that I learned there I am still applying to my sobriety and life now. The staff was amazing and everyone there wanted to see you succeed. The facility itself is beautiful. While there they shower me how to enjoy life without the need for substances. I loved the way that the days were set up, we had plenty to do and time to explore what life is like without substances. The follow up for past patients is great. I would recommend Deer Hollow to anyone who is struggling with addiction and is not sure where to go. The techs were fantastic and the food too!!

PTSD and Addiction often go hand-in-hand as individuals struggle to find ways to cope with trauma. Individuals looking for relief from either and/or both face a lot of uncertainty. I was scared, uncertain, isolated, and alone when my world fell apart because of trauma and related substance use. Today I count myself blessed and lucky to have had a room mate at a hospital recommend Deer Hollow for treatment. Alone and afraid, but no longer willing to let my life fall apart, I reached out to staff at Deer Hollow. I was met with professionals on the other end that understood my pain in ways no one else could - they had been there, done that, and come back from the grave. Over a few hours, they worked directly with me and my insurance to bring it all together, and the next day I was on a plane to Utah. I didn't know what to expect, but I was hopeful for the first time in years. I was greeted by two members of the staff with warm smiles and hugs. They picked up my bags for me, and we began our ride from the airport to their inpatient facilities in Draper, UT. When I arrived, I had no idea how long I would be there. But I had agreed that I was willing to take as long as necessary, and to devote myself with all I had to do what was necessary to save my life. What followed included weeks of inpatient treatment, transition to one of their sober living houses, a few months of outpatient treatment, and then, finally, when I was ready, transition back home to a new life filled with hope, faith, and courage. I was a new man. I could write a review about things like the excellent, professionally prepared meals, or the quality of the accomodations where I stayed, or I could write about other therapy-related aspects of the program like Yoga, or daily gym workouts. All those were amazing, and made life really enjoyable with a very high quality to it, but they all are footnotes compared to the experience and dedication of the staff, from the owner down to the night-shift techs I spent time with while I was there. Deer Hollow's programming is proven, results driven, certified, and individually tailored for the needs of their clients. My journey started at a hospital where staff-to-patient ratios were near 18-to-1. At Deer Hollow, it was closer to 2-to-1. In the hospital I felt like a number, waiting to be processed. At Deer Hollow, I felt like a family member and a friend, surrounded by people that understood my pain, uncertainty, shame, and suffering. I also felt a deep sense of compassion and love for the pain I was going through. Now, seven months after my life collapsed, I am successfully walking a path of sobriety, healed from the traumas of my past, working a program of fellowship and healing, as I continue to reap the benefits of my willingness to get better mixed with Deer Hollow's dedication to their clients. You can recover. You can find healing and the serenity you so desperately deserve. It works. I am a client, and today I am free.
