    Screenings/Assessments

    A screening and/or assessment is required prior to receiving treatment services. All local treatment providers conduct their own screenings and assessments. In medical settings, Screening, Brief Interventions and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is an effective public health approach.

    Treatment Overview

    Utah has a continuum of substance use disorder services including prevention, treatment and recovery support.

    Cost

    The cost of treatment services are based on a "sliding fee scale," according to your your income level. The fees associated with training, education and certification are different than those for treatment services.

    Best Practices

    Effective substance use disorder treatment consists of the following elements:

    • Person-centered (individualized treatment)
    • The use of evidence based practices that meet the client's needs
    • Gender specific, trauma-informed services
    • Safety of the individual
    • Trustworthiness of the provider
    • Collaboration
    • Empowerment
    • Ongoing clinical supervision
    • Medication assisted recovery
