Recovery from addiction is serious. Especially considering the ever growing issues of the opiate and opioid epidemics sweeping the nation. A lot of people who never intended to become addicts were simply doing as their doctor recommended and became hooked on a painkiller. Or there might be some associated mental health issue, another hot topic in the US. It seems like there are not a lot of options for addiction treatment and/or mental health treatment in Utah, but there are.
Growing up in a home where addiction was always right under the surface, and then later experiencing how recovery can change lives, I know the importance of getting help for drug or alcohol addiction. Here a few locations for drug and alcohol addiction treatment in Salt Lake City that I know provide excellent care.
