We help our patients realize that they are not alone and that they are strong enough to successfully go through treatment and lead happy and sober lives.
Alcohol Treatment, Rehab & Counseling in SLC, Utah
Our proven treatment programs address more than your use of alcohol. We’ll customize your sobriety plan to meet your specific needs and situation. We will address other psychological issues that can accompany Alcohol Use Disorder. Although many people have a drink as a “pick me up,” alcohol depresses the brain. Alcohol lessens your inhibitions, slurs speech, and decreases muscle control and coordination, and may lead to an Alcohol Use Disorder.
When To Start Treatment
Signs of Alcohol Use Disorder:
- Memory loss
- Relationship issues with family, friends, school, and work
- Continuing use of alcohol to cope with problems or to feel “normal”
- Physical symptoms including a headache, anxiety, insomnia, nausea
- Drinking in secret
- Loss of interest in activities that do not involve drinking
- Irresponsible behavior such as involvement in crime or risky sexual activities
- Increased alcohol tolerance
- Neglecting responsibilities such as work, family or school
- Spending increased amount of time drinking
- Irritability and mood swings
- Inability to stop drinking once you start
If you, your family or your friends start to notice these problems, you should seek the help of an alcohol treatment center or alcohol rehab center immediately. Treating the addiction fast helps to reduce further damage to health, relationships, and work of the patient.
Treatment Options for Alcoholism
Treating Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms
95% of people with alcoholism experience withdrawal symptoms when they decide to stop drinking. Common symptoms include; a headache, nausea, sweating, shaking and anxiety. Sometimes, in more serious cases, the symptoms may include; hallucinations, high blood pressure, seizures and confusion. The mild symptoms are usually treated under out-patient care while the serious ones require inpatient alcohol rehab or treatment.
This treatment is basically about staying away from alcohol. It also includes medication for some withdrawal symptoms. The aim is to reduce physical dependence on alcohol and reduce chances of a relapse. It takes about 3-7 days.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that helps identify and change distorted thinking that can lead to risky or unhealthy behavior. CBT is highly effective for individuals struggling with depression, PTSD, anxiety, OCD, bipolar disorder, addiction, and other mental health conditions. CBT can also be useful in managing emotional challenges, such as grief or loss, chronic pain and relationship conflicts. Untreated chronic, negative and distorted thinking can lead to problematic behaviors and overall dysfunction.
Through a series of one-on-one counseling sessions, CBT teaches specific recognition skills that identify faulty thinking and help modify existing beliefs and apply new, positive and practical techniques.
CBT creates an awareness of how thought patterns create our reality and determine how we behave. For instance, someone suffering from depression is experiencing cognitive errors. These errors produce automatic, spontaneous and distorted thinking. These cognitive errors can lead to a negative mindset and cause a person to jump to negative conclusions that are riddled with catastrophe.
CBT helps stop negative thinking by identifying situations in your life that might be producing unwanted results. Recognizing the patterns, behaviors and thinking that are contributing to your challenges is the first step.
You’ll learn to:
- Utilize a thought record, journal, voice recorder or app
- Re-align distorted thoughts
- Control and balance reactions
- Accurately self-evaluate and align emotions correctly
This treatment method uses recreational activities such as art and dance to establish problems and needs, build confidence, develop better coping mechanisms, improve cognitive functioning and build social skills.
