Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
  • Medical Detoxification

    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Nestled in a mountain town known for its ski resorts and sports fishing, the Alcohol and Chemical Treatment Center (ACT) at Ogden Regional Medical Center is one of the oldest alcohol and chemical dependency treatment programs in Utah. Founded in 1973, the facility offers residential and outpatient treatment to adults struggling with substance use disorder. The facility is also one of only five hospital-based treatment programs in Utah (just two percent of all facilities in the state) to provide medical detox.


Clients are accessed upon admission in order to be provided with the proper level of care. Treatment is evidence-based and included modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and traditional 12-step methodology.

In addition to detox, the facility offers inpatient treatment (which can last up to 30 days) and a residential program (which can last between 30 and 90 days). Both programs include group therapy, family education, and relapse prevention workshops.

Outpatient options include a 28-day partial hospitalization program (PHP) and an eight-week intensive outpatient program (IOP). A weekly continuing care program is offered to all graduates for up to two years.

According to the facility's website, the treatment center encourages family members to participate in the treatment process.


The center's website indicates the treatment team includes physicians, nurses, and addiction specialists. The five individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date indicated that staff were well-trained and knowledgeable.

Staff's level of training and experience: 4.2/5 stars

The three alumni polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave ACT mixed feedback. Dan and Ken reported finding success in the program and gave the facility four or five out of five stars for its holistic offerings, its extracurricular activities, its level of safety, and the frequency and consistency of its group therapy meetings.

"This facility and its staff are dedicated to providing the best care possible," wrote one loved one in a representative review.

The only complaint from both participants was the facility could use some renovations.
