  • 26 Years of Serving Those in Greatest Need in Utah
    In 2012, we are marking 26 years of service in Utah. In 1986 we opened our adult detoxification facility and since then we have served tens of thousands of people who need to detox from drugs or alcohol. The people we serve are homeless or living in poverty. Often they have limited choices on where they can go for treatment.
