Welcome to the Courage to Change Program
at Salt Lake Behavioral Health

Salt Lake Behavioral Health’s Courage to Change Addiction Medicine Program can help you stabilize from addiction, learn strategies for recovery, and connect to a long-term recovery community. With education and group therapy, we can help you understand the disease model of addiction and set up recovery strategies to meet your situation and needs. Our primary treatment modality is Seeking Safety, which can help you recognize the substance abuse cycle you’ve been living through so you can progress into recovery. The multi-disciplinary staff at Salt Lake Behavioral Health is comprised of experienced physicians, nurses and counselors who are dedicated to helping you change your life. With a board-certified addictionologist and masters-level clinicians specially trained in addiction medicine, the Courage to Change Addiction Medicine Program can help you develop the strength and the techniques to walk the road to recovery.
