  • Beautiful Scenic Utah Mountains

  • Family Program

    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
  • Individualized Treatment

    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

It is very much a team effort, and I have seen amazing results in many of the residents who are in recovery.

Located in the picturesque community of Alpine, Utah, Alpine Recovery Lodge provides anupscale residential program and outpatient-based aftercare for individuals struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring mental health disorders. If necessary, the lodge also provides medically monitored detoxification on-site to help alleviate withdrawal symptoms.


Upon admission, clients undergo an initial assessment to guide clinicians in developing and implementing an individualized treatment plan. To treat its clientele, Alpine Recovery Lodge combines evidence-based treatment modalities with spiritual guidance, 12-step facilitation, and holistic treatment methods. Alpine Recovery Lodge’s residential program lasts between 30 and 90 days, depending on the needs and progress of the client.

Utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT), and motivational interviewing (MI) approaches, the center facilitates individual, group and family counseling sessions. Counseling sessions are designed to help clients process and regulate emotions, set goals, and identify the links between destructive thinking patterns and addictive behaviors. Alpine Recovery Lodge may also offer disorder-specific groups for individuals struggling with co-occurring disorders, such as depression, trauma, and anxiety.

Optional to the resident, Alpine Recovery Lodge also utilizes a recovery approach that incorporates the principles and practices of the Church of Latter-day Saints into programming, or “LDS Rehab.” The LDS Rehab approach integrates Biblical teachings, spiritual counseling, and worship services into the program. For instance, the LDS approach incorporates the principles of the Church of Latter-day Saints into the client’s introduction to the 12-step model of recovery.

Along with traditional treatment approaches, Alpine Recovery Lodge emphasizes holistic and experiential treatment methods as integral to the client’s overall recovery and well-being. During residential treatment, clients participate in yoga, guided meditation, fitness regimens, nature hikes, and art therapy sessions.

Upon completion of the residential program, Alpine Recovery Lodge strongly encourages clients utilize the facility’s outpatient services as step-down aftercare. Alumni and families are invited to meet with counselors both in-person and via Skype or FaceTime.


Alpine Recovery Lodge employs a large, multidisciplinary team of physicians, medical support, master’s level substance abuse counselors, mental health counselors, family counselors, case managers, house managers, and a support team of group presenters and life coaches.
