Now the Most Comprehensive Addiction Recovery Program in the Region

Ogden Regional Medical Center offers more help with a state-of-the-art ACT Residential Center

Ogden, UT - With the grand opening of its state-of-the-art ACT Residential Center, Ogden Regional Medical Center significantly expands its long-established ACT Program. The newly built facility offers a cost-effective, 30-90 day treatment option to people seeking help with addiction recovery. Now that it provides support in a residential setting, Ogden Regional is first in Utah and the region to meet patient needs through multiple alcohol and chemical treatment options - all on the hospital campus.

The ACT Residential Center will officially open its doors in late Feb. 2018. The center is staffed and equipped to support addiction recovery for up to 12 patients at a time. They will benefit from proven therapy modalities provided by a fully trained team of substance use experts in a comfortable, safe and supportive residential setting. That team includes licensed clinical social workers, case managers, board certified addictionologists and other specialists.

"People who undergo lengthier treatment in a residential care setting more often achieve long-term sobriety," says Justin Hatch, behavioral health services director at Ogden Regional Medical Center. "For this reason and more, we are excited to add this treatment option to our ACT program and help more people to regain control and get back to enjoying more productive, happier lives."

The specialists at Ogden Regional understand that it is critically important to help patients cope with the many facets that contribute to substance use including behavioral, psychological and social. That is why there are now five addiction recovery options available at the hospital. Patients can participate in any option separately or transition through various levels as they go through substance use treatment. This comprehensive approach offers new hope for achieving long-term sobriety.

Offering five distinct levels of care and a combination of addiction recovery options differentiates Ogden Regional Medical Center and makes its comprehensive program unique in Utah and the region:

  • Medical detoxification
  • Inpatient rehabilitation (28 days)
  • Residential treatment (30-90 days)
  • Partial hospitalization / daytime program (patients spend evenings at home)
  • Intensive outpatient programs / 3.5 hours daily - four days a week

Act Residential Center

Here are some highlights of the newest addiction recovery treatment option at Ogden Regional:

  • Private, comfortable rooms for 12 residents
  • Experienced and fully trained substance use treatment team with monitoring 24/7
  • A multitude of treatment modalities including musical therapy, recreational therapy and weekly recreational outings
  • Home-like communal areas for socializing and relaxation
  • Group rooms for meetings, presentations and a structured exercise program

Remodeled Inpatient Act Unit

While the Residential Center was under construction, the inpatient ACT unit at Ogden Regional Medical Center was renovated. It continues to offer medical detoxification and rehabilitation for 28 days, and now the environment has been updated to better meet patient needs while increasing comfort and safety.

Behavioral Health Unit

The question is often posed; do mental health issues lead to addiction or does addiction lead to mental health issues? Whatever the answer, behavioral health specialists will start supporting the various addiction recovery treatment options at Ogden Regional Medical Center in early spring 2018.
