7. Journey Healing Center, Multiple Locations
The main Journey Healing Center is located in Salt Lake City by the Wasatch mountains and has more the feel of a secluded ski resort than a rehab center. Journey has a further location known as Creekside, that is a smaller, private house a short walk from the main facility. Both of these facilities allow for full recovery in a comfortable and secluded environment, using a holistic approach that includes practices such as yoga, meditation, drumming therapy, massage therapy, and more.

8. Odyssey House, Salt Lake City
Founded in 1971, Odyssey House has had plenty of time to perfect their process. And as they are one of the most popular recovery resources in Utah, it is safe to say that they have done a good job of doing just that. One of their proudest achievements is the “family culture” that they have cultivated over the years, giving each client a strong support system and “meaningful personal connections during treatment.”

10. Renaissance Ranch, Multiple Locations

They welcome both those of the LDS faith and those who are not. As is also common with rehab centers, they have gender-specific programs, but their men’s and women’s programs are located in two different areas of the state, both state-of-the-art facilities with expert staff and excellent programs for addiction recovery.
