A male-only inpatient substance use program with experiential therapies and 12 Step programming with majestic mountain views.
About Balance House
Nestled beside the Wasatch mountains, Balance House’s inpatient treatment levels are created for young adult men who are seeking assistance with drugs, alcohol or life in general. Clients will work with a primary therapist, but have the option to learn how to mix music, write, create digital art, or even construct an engine. All of these activities will be woven into the therapeutic process. Balance House’s program addresses substance use, co-occurring conditions, and sets men up to thrive in their personal lives.
Each client will receive a longboard upon entrance into Balance House. His first assignment will be to build and design his longboard to make it his own. We will then be taking our clients up Provo Canyon on nights with full moons to ride down under the moon light. A client's total therapy includes nutritional guidance, exercise, sleep, connection, diagnostics, family engagement, and medication management (MAT) as needed.
Recreational activities with peers are a part of the Balance House treatment program to promote social stability. Customers will take part in camping, hiking, biking, skiing, and snowboarding excursions (depending on the season). Longboarding, boating, and paddle boarding will be among the additional activities, with process groups taking place in the midst of a lake. Clients can enjoy shared bedrooms, an on-site rec room, outings to sports games, and sports teams for clients to join. Balance House is an out of network provider but can work alongside some insurances. They also accept private pay. Treatment from Balance House generally lasts 4 months.

A combination of scientifically rooted therapies and treatments make up evidence-based care, defined by their measured and proven results.
Individual care meets the needs of each patient, using personalized treatment to provide them the most relevant care and greatest chance of success.
Incorporating spirituality, community, and responsibility, 12-Step philosophies prioritize the guidance of a Higher Power and a continuation of 12-Step practices.
Expressive tools and therapies help patients process past situations, learn more about themselves, and find healing through action.
Patient and therapist meet 1-on-1 to work through difficult emotions and behavioral challenges in a personal, private setting.
Teaching life skills like cooking, cleaning, clear communication, and even basic math provides a strong foundation for continued recovery.
With this approach, patients heal by doing. Therapists help patients process difficult emotions to speak, using guided activities like art or dance.
Twelve Step Facilitation
12-Step groups offer a framework for addiction recovery. Members commit to a higher power, recognize their issues, and support each other in the healing process.
This method combines treatment with education, teaching patients about different paths toward recovery. This empowers them to make more effective decisions.
Singing, performing, and even listening to music can be therapeutic. Music therapy sessions are facilitated by certified counselors.
It's possible to abuse any drug, even prescribed ones. If you crave a medication, or regularly take it more than directed, you may have an addiction.
A person with multiple mental health diagnoses, such as addiction and depression, has co-occurring disorders also called dual diagnosis.
Cocaine is a stimulant with euphoric effects. Agitation, muscle ticks, psychosis, and heart issues are common symptoms of cocaine abuse.
Benzodiazepines are prescribed to treat anxiety and sleep issues. They are highly habit forming, and their abuse can cause mood changes and poor judgement.
Opioids produce pain-relief and euphoria, which can lead to addiction. This class of drugs includes prescribed medication and the illegal drug heroin.
Methamphetamine, or meth, increases energy, agitation, and paranoia. Long-term use can result in severe physical and mental health issues.
Heroin is a highly addictive and illegal opioid. It can cause insomnia, collapsed veins, heart issues, and additional mental health issues.
Hallucinogenic drugs—like LSD—cause euphoria and increased sensory experiences. When abused, they can lead to depression and psychosis.
Drug addiction is the excessive and repetitive use of substances, despite harmful consequences to a person's life, health, and relationships.
Using alcohol as a coping mechanism, or drinking excessively throughout the week, signals an alcohol use disorder.
