Expanding Behavioral Health & Detox Services

Utah’s needs are growing. We're expanding our detoxification and counseling services with a new facility on Redwood Road and you can help make it happen.

The Critical Need

Left untreated, substance use disorders wreak havoc on families, the economy, public safety, and individual quality of life. At VOA Utah, we've been helping Utahns battle substance addiction for almost 40 years, but the need is growing. Drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death in Utah.

Previously, we turned away an average of ten individuals daily from our detox facilities due to lack of space.


Streamlining Care at a New Facility

We need more space. We need a more seamless continuum of care. So we've moved our Men's Detox Center and Cornerstone Counseling Center to our new location in the Glendale neighborhood of Salt Lake City. We meet clients where they are on their path to recovery, more easily treating substance use disorders and mental health issues.

How To Give

Tax Deductibility

VOA Utah is a 501(c)(3) organization with EIN (94-3008720). Donations to the campaign are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

Multi-year Pledges

A three-year pledge period has been established for the campaign, allowing donors to fulfill their pledges in installments. However, exceptions may be made to accommodate specific donor needs.

Gifts of Appreciated Property

Capital assets, including stocks, bonds, securities, and real estate, which have appreciated significantly beyond the original purchase price, may also be contributed, potentially creating significant tax benefits. Certain limitations apply, however, and donors are encouraged to consult with advisors about such gifts.

Corporate and Matching Gifts

Owners of closely held corporations may benefit by making contributions through their companies. This avoids possible double taxation of both corporate and personal incomes. Also, many corporations have matching gift programs under which the value of an employee’s or director’s (or spouse’s) gift may be multiplied.

Gifts of Cash

An outright pledge of cash is the simplest method of giving. It qualifies for a full charitable deduction.

A Trusted Community Partner

VOA Utah is a trusted community partner with a wealth of experience helping people experiencing homelessness, substance addiction, and mental health issues. We are revolutionizing our approach to serve more people more effectively and with greater efficiency. Join us in making Recovery on Redwood a reality.
