Dayspring offers outpatient substance use disorder treatment programs at Intermountain
Healthcare’s Cottonwood Campus. We are here to assist your family in your goal
of obtaining and maintaining sobriety from drugs and alcohol to enjoy a fuller life.
Our programs offer up-to-date, evidence-based treatment in a safe, accepting
environment. Staff members at Dayspring are knowledgeable, caring and
experienced, and give patients the support and tools they need to make positive
changes in their lives.
Substance use disorder treatment programs at Dayspring address all areas of a person’s
life, with emphasis on family, education, and vocational, social, and spiritual
progress. We offer individual counseling, group therapy, and educational sessions.
We also have family sessions, which explore addiction and the role co-dependency
plays in disease.
All services are offered to patients in an outpatient setting:
- Standard Outpatient: May include one or more treatment intervention, including MAT, group and individual therapy in an outpatient setting. Treatment services are determined by patient need and identified treatment goals. Standard outpatient treatment offers patients up to 9 hours of treatment each week.
- Intensive Outpatient: Substance use disorder Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are utilized for individuals dealing with addiction disorders, or have co-occurring mental and substance use disorders, who do not require medical detoxification or 24-hour supervision. IOP’s are alternatives to inpatient and residential treatment, offering patients up to 19 hours of treatment each week. IOPs are designed to establish psychosocial supports, facilitate relapse management, and development of coping strategies. Dayspring provides an IOP that allows individuals to maintain their family and work responsibilities while they participate in treatment.
Treatment may include any of the interventions mentioned below:
Patients participate in:
- Educational groups utilizing the latest research and information to help deepen understanding of the addiction disease model
- Trauma-Informed groups utilizing Seeking Safety model and materials
- Experiential groups to tap into innate creativity and build emotional strength
- Community support programs are encouraged, as another means of support and connection with a world-wide recovery community
Patients can meet with a personal counselor or therapist to discuss issues that they might feel are too personal to process in groups. Patients will also regularly review treatment progress and individual goals in individual treatment.
Support from family and friends is highly beneficial to treatment outcomes. Dayspring provides Family Groups, encouraging close family members and friends to participate. These groups focus on the impact of addiction on the patient’s social system. Together, patients and their family and friends make necessary life changes to create an environment supportive of recovery.
Drug testing is provided to assist patients in demonstrating personal responsibility.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of FDA-approved medications, in combination with behavioral therapy and counseling to help people recover from addiction. MAT medications help to relieve the withdrawal symptoms and psychological cravings that precede continued drug or alcohol use. MAT is used when treating opioid use disorder, alcohol use disorder, and tobacco disorder.
Upon completion of treatment goals, patients are encouraged to participate in Continuing Care groups, often referred to as “Aftercare”, for ongoing support. These groups are open to all Dayspring patients and many patients choose to participate for several years, while they continue to build their informal supports.
