Recovery Ways Mountain View operates four treatment centers in Murray, Utah. This review focuses on the Mountain View location, which specializes in intensive outpatient (IOP) and residential addiction treatment.

The center's website notes Recovery Ways' mission "is to provide the most cost-effective, accessible substance abuse treatment to as many people as possible."


According to Recovery Ways' website, the residential treatment program is designed for people who don't need acute care and aren't experiencing withdrawal symptoms, but still need monitoring. Programming in residential treatment includes intensive individual and group counseling. Recovery Ways tries to keep group sessions small in order to make sure everyone gets therapy.

This program is structured, and offers at least eight hours of programming a day. The length of treatment depends on the severity of the addiction, if a client has already been through addiction, and if they have co-occurring disorders. The treatment team works with clients to help them understand triggers, deal with everyday life, and learn the tools needed to overcome addiction.

The Mountain View location also offers IOP addiction treatment, which is designed to work with the client's daily life, and doesn't cause much disruption. Clients in this program commit to at least three group therapy sessions a week, and individuals are introduced to the 12-steps. Both treatment programs typically lasts for 30, 60, or 90 days.

The treatment center's website notes family integration therapy services are important to a successful addiction recovery plan. Recovery Way’s purpose for the family program is to educate and support the client's family because addiction, substance abuse, and mental health disorders impact the entire family.

Recovery Ways offers aftercare and alumni programs after clients finish treatment.

According to Recovery Way’s website, the treatment center has taken "extreme measures" to make sure the facilities are "comfortable and modern." Also, the buildings are newly constructed with plush furniture. Pictures on the center's website show shared bedrooms.
