Our Treatments For Addiction
DEVELOPED JUST FOR YOU
The treatment of addiction is not normally one size fits all. As each person has their own history and therefore reason for using drugs or alcohol, Avante Treatment Center provides multiple treatment modalities to help each individual.
Upon entering our luxury Utah addiction center, your admissions team will walk you through your options and outline a plan of action. This plan will update based on your progress. If one of the following treatments works best for you, then we adjust accordingly.

What Do These Treatments Do?
12 Step and Group Meetings
The 12 step program has been around since 1935, and started by a man we call Bill W. Today, more and more people use a 12 step program to work through specific elements of their life to truly accept that they have no control over their addiction, and therefore need help. Within the Avante Treatment Center program, we utilize 12-step and group sessions to provide our clients with the option of working the 12 steps and to provide a community for each person. It has been proven that a person’s community pays a large roll in their sobriety. By introducing group therapy and 12-step meetings our clients are more prepared for the real world once they leave our facility.
Each client that enters our luxury facility is here for a reason. Regardless of the reason, the results of the program need to come from within the individual. This is why we have hired the top addiction counselors in the state of Utah and provide 3 times the number of one-on-one hours than what is recommend for treatment of addiction.
During these sessions the addiction counselor works with the client to identify any issues they are having in group or with any internal struggles they are not comfortable sharing in group or 12-step meetings. These sessions typically lead to a more involved client who is ready to face their addiction head on.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) provides an outlet for clients to identify “negative thought patterns” that could be destructive in their lives and lead to addiction. This therapy asks clients to look deep at these thoughts and most importantly, remove them from the brain.
CBT has been shown to be effective in many studies for the treatment of addiction as well as other mental health conditions. In fact, one study found that over 60% of people who were treated with CBT remained sober 52 weeks after completing their program. This is compared to just 27% using just a 12-step program.
Unlike the “confrontational” approach of treating addiction, which focuses on “talking sense” into the client, motivational interviewing teaches the client to provide their own motivations for sobriety. In these one-on-one sessions, the counselor and client address a common problem in recovery, ambivalence for change.
Rather than forcing the client to take responsibility and making them change, we meet the client where they are at the moment and work with them to continue the growth. As change scares more people, being sober is no different. This is why we have seen such success with this treatment for addiction.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
The regulation of emotional responses to life is a skill that servers our clients well after they leave our facility. DBT teaches our clients how to react to emotions without becoming self-destructive or turning to extreme emotions which lead to the use of drugs or alcohol. During these sessions, clients are taught four key skill sets. These are:
- Distress Tolerance
- Emotion Regulation
- Interpersonal Effectiveness
