Foothill Residential Treatment Center

Foothill Residential Treatment Center


Foothill Residential Treatment Center in Spanish Fork, Utah, is operated by Utah’s Department of Drug and Alcohol Prevention and Treatment. The facility offers residential treatment for adult men and women dealing with substance abuse. Detoxification is available on-site.

The center accepts Utah residents age 18 and older, including those with HIV/Aids, in the criminal justice system, and pregnant women.


Clients needing detoxification will spend between three to ten days depending on individual needs in the social detoxification program. Following detoxification, clients may be referred to Foothill’s residential services.

The residential program lasts five to six weeks and focuses on understanding addiction and creating lifestyle changes. During their stay, clients will participate in 12-Step group meetings, process groups, and education groups. Clients will also participate in art therapy and other experiential therapies.

Clients will develop a relapse prevention and recovery plan prior to leaving the program.

The facility also offers case management services that connect individuals to community resources including housing, employment, legal, and medical support.

Four alumni surveyed by at this time of writing provided positive feedback for Foothill. All four alumni gave the center five out of five stars for its treatment effectiveness.

Two alumni cited staff as a strength of the facility. “It focuses on the basic foundation needed to get clean,” wrote alum J.O., “and empowers the addict to recognize that there is a choice.” Alumni also highlighted that the program assisted vulnerable individuals. “Great for people with low or no income,” commented R.G. Another alum, S.H. wrote that they attended treatment directly from jail, adding: “Believed in me when society didn’t.”

However, alumni felt holistic offerings were lacking, with three alumni giving the category ratings between one and three stars. Three alumni gave the center’s family participation five out of five stars with another providing a one-star rating.

Secondary sites yield mostly positive feedback. The sole reviewer on CiteHealth commented: “I believe this place is proof that expensive rehabs dont offer anything more than this place.”

On Google, two of three reviewers provided perfect five-star ratings. The third reviewer on Google, M.L., however, left a one-star rating. M.L. called staff “rude” and commented: “They ask Family to pick up the tab on taking them to appointments and don’t even try to talk with the family about what’s going on.”


Though specific financial details are unavailable on the facility’s website, internal budgeting information suggests that a sliding scale fee may be assessed. Of the three individuals polled by to date, two gave the center’s affordability five out of five stars while a third provided a one-star rating.
