Dayspring offers outpatient substance abuse treatment programs at Intermountain Healthcare’s LDS Hospital 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 change in their lives.

The Dayspring program philosophy is based on the 12-Step orientation of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. During treatment, patients are expected to attend and participate in the 12 Step meetings of their choice.

Substance abuse 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. Family members often believe it’s their job to take care of and sacrifice for their loved one. We help families focus on recovery from the co-dependent role. Families are also referred to Alanon, a 12-step program designed to support families dealing with addiction.

Dayspring Programs

Day Treatment

The Day Treatment program provides each individual with supervision and structure to help them continue practicing the skills and tools they need to continue their recovery. Clients are involved in a full schedule of events, five days a week. Family members are involved in support groups on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.

Day Treatment Schedule

  • Monday, Thursday and Friday: 1:00pm – 5:00pm
  • Tuesday and Wednesday: 1:00pm – 9:30pm
  • Family Sessions: Tuesday and Wednesday 5:30pm – 9:30pm

Depending on the patient's needs and completion of the treatment plan, the Day Treatment program typically takes six to eight weeks to complete. After completing the program, patients transition into the Aftercare program.

Evening Treatment

Dayspring provides an evening substance abuse program that allows individuals to maintain their family and work responsibilities during the day and weekends while they participate in treatment. Depending on patient motivation and completion of their treatment plan, the average length of treatment is six weeks before patients transition to the Aftercare program.

Evening Outpatient Schedule

  • Monday-Thursday: 5:30pm-9:30pm
  • Friday-Sunday: 12-Step Recovery Meeting
  • Family Sessions: Tuesday and Wednesday from 5:30pm – 9:30pm


Aftercare is a very important part of Dayspring programs and is provided at no charge. It takes longer than four or six weeks for a person to make lasting changes in their life, so attendance at Aftercare and 12 Step meetings is essential to long-term recovery success. Clients return once a week for up to two years to attend an Aftercare group where they review the skills and tools of recovery that they learned in the Dayspring programs.

One-hour Aftercare groups are held each Tuesday and Wednesday evening at 6:00pm and 7:30pm. Each patient is assigned one group. The groups are also open to individuals who feel the need for more structure and information in utilizing recovery skills. Each group has a mix of new patients right out of treatment as well as others who have had a history of attending Aftercare.
