To qualify for male or female sober living, clients must be actively attending one of Cold Creek’s Day Treatment – PHP or Intensive Outpatient – IOP programs. Once a client graduates from the outpatient program they are eligible to continue living in the sober living apartments at a reduced cost for up to one year.
In sober living clients are required to actively work on their recovery as well as setting and achieving career, educational and other life goals. There are many locations in the Salt Lake City area where clients can attend AA, NA and other recovery meetings. We are conveniently located within walking distance of the Davis Applied Technology College and close to public transportation that can take you to Weber State University, the University of Utah and other educational opportunities. There are also vocational rehabilitation and employment service offices in the area. Clients are expected to be actively creating a clean and sober life not just “hanging out”. Clients receive weekly case management support to help meet these objectives.
Cold Creek’s sober living apartments are superior because we protect our clients hard earned sobriety. We do not allow new clients into the program who are not actively participating in the outpatient program or unable to maintain their sobriety. There is a sober living manager and staff available 24/7. Clients who relapse are not allowed into sober living until they meet with a therapist who will assess the severity of the relapse and determine if the client can continue in the program or will need to transition into a higher level of care. The severity of the relapse and attitude of the client is a substantial determining factor. If a client relapses, shows remorse and immediately notifies their counselor or sober living manager, they can often continue in the program. If a client relapses and disappears for days or a week and does not reach out to their support network for help, they will likely be required to transition back into a higher level of care.
Each apartment has alarms on the windows and doors. All of the apartments have security cameras inside the hallways, common areas and outside of the building. Sober living clients are randomly drug tested a minimum of three times per week. Only Three clients share a two bedroom apartment. This is the type of evidence based treatment is acknowledge by Columbia University and the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Evidence based treatment offers clients who are committed to change the opportunity to begin a life free of addiction. This client review from Google reflects the feelings of many of our alumni:
“I cannot express my gratitude for the gift this program has given me. They have returned me to sobriety, but more than that they have given me my life back. The sparkle in my eye, my love for my fellow man, my very soul has been returned to me by this life changing program. From the top rate owners hospitality and genuine concern to the equine therapy, healing and recovery are the priority of every single staff member.” Jamie M.
