Day Treatment

We offer a variety of Day Treatment Programs in Utah.  This Day Treatment option for treating drug addiction, alcohol abuse, and co-occurring mental health issues is for male and female adults aged 18 years or older who desire the same level of comprehensiveness and intensity that an Inpatient Residential Program provides, but prefer to arrange for their own housing and other self-maintenance needs while being treated.

Day Treatment Programs typically involve a minimum of twenty (20) hours or more per week of commitment.  Days of the week and program times are generally flexible and are arranged to best meet an individual’s needs.

Spirit Mountain’s Day Treatment Program, like its Residential and Intensive Outpatient Programs, begins first by assessing where an individual is in their addiction and then performing a dual diagnosis of any underlying mental health issues that may be contributing to the addictive behavior.  At Spirit Mountain, both the addiction and underlying mental health issues are treated simultaneously so as to help assure a complete recovery.

Based on these above assessments, an Individualized Treatment Plan (ITP) is then developed that will form the basis for treatment.  This ITP can be adjusted at any time based on the progress that an individual is or is not making in their treatment.  The key is customizing treatment to the specific needs of the individual.

Spirit Mountain Behavioral Health’s professional staff includes a Medical Doctor, Psychiatrist, but we are also able to work in coordination with an individual’s own Medical Doctor to assure that all necessary medicinal needs are accommodated during treatment.

Treatment methods that comprise an individual’s Day Treatment plan typically include evidence-based, or cognitive behavioral types of therapy that may or may not be integrated with spiritual based disciplines or other holistic treatment modalities to assure individual’s the most comprehensive treatment possible.  Following are some types of treatment regimens utilized in Day Treatment:

  • Individual Therapy
  • Group Therapy
  • Psychoeducational Instruction
  • Equine Assisted Therapy
  • Life Skills Instruction
  • Neuro Stimulation
  • Other Holistic Treatments

Our Location

Day treatment is a partial hospitalization program for those individuals with mental, emotional, and/or addictive disorders who do not require twenty-four-hour inpatient care.

It is an intensive course of treatment, where the individual spends at least 8 hours during the day at the facility. The hours may be flexible, depending on the center.

Day treatment centers usually provide the following services:

  • Individual counseling/ therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Creative therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Drug and addiction education
  • Solution focused groups
  • Relapse prevention planning
  • Aftercare plans
  • After care group
  • Personalized treatment plan
  • Recreational activities

Day treatment is a good choice for those who do not need to medically detox.

This type of drug treatment may be the best decision for a busy parent who needs to go home at night, or for an adolescent. Some day treatment programs will provide an educational component. It is also generally less expensive than inpatient rehab because you are not paying to room and board during the time of treatment. Day treatment is an ideal for those with chronic disorders, or for those who have a severe addiction and relapse history who have already spent thirty days or more in an inpatient drug treatment center. It eases the transition from a residential stay back to one’s life.

The treatment process is highly individualized.

If you are interested in a day treatment program for yourself or a loved one, they will work out a plan that is just right for your needs. The length of the program depends on the severity of the addiction (how much was used, what substances, the length of time in the addiction, etc.). When speaking with an intake person, honesty is of utmost importance. If you are addicted to heroin or alcohol, a medical detox may be necessary before beginning a day treatment plan.

If the home environment is stable and clean and sober, day treatment may be a good option. In general, day treatment provides all of the essential tools and amenities that an inpatient facility provides, with the benefit of lower cost, and going home at night. Be sure to check your insurance policy, as most day treatment centers may be covered fully or partially.
