Our mission is to bring lasting change to families in Utah and beyond, offering a lifeline to those facing the challenges of addiction. We provide a long-term medical treatment that maximizes your success. Our commitment goes beyond mere treatment; we offer daily support during the initial phases and weekly check-ins throughout the entire two years. Telemedicine visits are available to enhance convenience and accessibility. Our expertise includes buprenorphine treatment, a proven path to recovery.

Why Choose Resilience Health

We stand out by offering a proven medical treatment that achieves the highest long-term recovery rates. Our outpatient approach includes frequent convenient telehealth visits, setting us apart from inpatient centers. In comparison, short duration, 30-90 day inpatient drug rehab programs, have significantly less sobriety success unless followed by a long-term treatment program like ours. Studies have shown that programs lasting longer than 18 months when including buprenorphine maintenance treatment, have highest treatment success rates.

Buprenorphine is  FDA approved for the treatment of opioid addiction (opioids include substances such as oxycodone, fentanyl, and heroin etc). Buprenorphine is a medication that partially stimulates the opioid receptors, alleviating physical withdrawal and cravings long term.  It begins working immediately to break the cycle of opioid dependency, starting on day one. Buprenorphine is very safe with allergic reactions being exceedingly rare. It also has a very low overdose risk.

We customize the dose to every patient’s needs. This treatment allows patients to return to their previous level of functioning, in their jobs, at home, and socially. This often occurs within the first week. Depending on severity of withdrawal, patients may not need to miss any work.

Our program typically includes around 150 visits over the two years. To maximize ease and convenience the majority of these are 10-15 minute telehealth appointments. This means that visits can be during work breaks, picking up kids from school, or while on vacation.

Important components of success include:

  • Primary care physician (required for participation in our program)
  • Therapist
  • Pharmacy
  • Membership with a support program (such as Narcotics Anonymous).

Patients can choose to use their own pharmacy, or they may choose to use the mail order pharmacy service that we are associated with that will deliver medications confidentially to their mailbox.
