Helping Utah's most vulnerable

Adult Detoxification Center

How to Enter the Adult Detox Center

Our Adult Detoxification Center is a 65-bed, residential program where homeless and low-income men and women can safely detoxify from alcohol and/or drugs for up to 14 days. Adult residents of Salt Lake Country can check themselves in if they have taken drugs in the past 72 hours. Residents outside of Salt Lake County can also receive treatment by paying $115 per night.

Once individuals have completed physical detoxification, they are assessed and referred for additional substance abuse services. While in the program, clients attend 12-step recovery groups and participate in case management services in order to increase readiness for substance abuse treatment and a life in recovery.

Simply call 801-363-9400 to check on bed availability.

Jail Diversion Program

Volunteers of America, Utah has partnered with the Salt Lake City Police, West Valley City Police, UTA Police and the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Department to offer individuals who have been picked up for public intoxication an alternative to jail and a safe environment focused on recovery. To meet the criteria for Jail Diversion Program, clients must be intoxicated, non-combative, medically stable and willing to come to the detox center.

Officers can call 801-363-9400 ext. 0 for bed availability, van pick-up hours and availability.
