MATR Behavioral Health

MATR Behavioral Health Mount Pleasant Utah

Through years of experience, our co-founders have learned that substance abuse addiction is an attempt to avoid the unavoidable, the self. The cause of substance abuse addiction can be treated best when treatment focus is on the family and the client. We use a variety of new and proven substance abuse treatment approaches in our curriculum such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, principles of hypnotherapy and Holographic Human Transformation Theory. These allow us to re-program cycles of behaviors that keep an individual trapped in substance abuse patterns. Substance Abuse Treatment works best when the client is taught ways of identifying for themselves their own dysfunctional views of their life that trigger their self limiting beliefs and leads back to addiction. The human brain is an incredible computer and no one was born an addict. MATR Substance Abuse Treatment teaches the client the way to program their own brain and simple techniques for doing this.

Reviews about MATR Behavioral Health

Before MATR, my addiction imprisoned me in the deepest and darkest corner of the worst kind of hell imaginable. I wanted nothing less than to cry myself to sleep. Only I knew once I closed my eyes I would be able to see the monster I had become. The idea of facing this monster was absolutely paralyzing. At MATR, I began to look at within. With MATR’s unique multiple approach I began to heal myself. Now, I love what I see.Today, I believe in myself. Thank you MATR.

  • I was so broken when I entered into treatment. I had no self worth. I was lost. I have had some traumatic life experiences that drove me to addiction. At MATR they taught me the root issues that lead me to those addictions. They taught me how my brain works and why I was doing the destructive behaviors. Most important they taught me the techniques to work through those root issues. Also how to change my thinking and process through those traumatic events. I feel like I can breathe again and go on with life. I am able to have self control and work through what ever life decides to throw at me. The information and knowledge that I learned at MATR would help anyone not just substance abuse.

    family oriented. Teach functions of the mind, holographic human and quantum physics regarding human behavior.
    I arrived at MATR October 24th 2014. I walked through the doors broken. My 3 kids chose not to live with me because of my addiction. My family wanted nothing to do with me. MATR helped me to find myself again. The Techniques and curriculum they teach is life changing! I now realize I have choice. I am almost 1 year clean and sober! I moved into my own place and my kids moved back home with me. I love myself again. Thank you MATR for loving, trusting and believing in me when I couldn't do that for myself. I am forever grateful! Love you all!
    I owe you my life! I love these two lady's for what they teach and they have touched so many life's. I'm a meth addict in recovery that fights everyday to not return where I once was. Because of this program I can look myself in the mirror and like what I see and who I become. I have self worth and would be where I'm at today if it wasn't for this program. I love you two and I'm blessed to have you two lady's in my life. Thank you for all you do and keep on doing you do make a difference...

  • Matr helped me in many ways. I was at the end of all hope. They taught me the tools to learn from my addiction. And to keep up with my sobriety. Next month , I will have 3 years. I never would have thought that I could do this. And completely love myself, and have the desire to help others who are struggling with addiction. The love I feel there is so amazing. It's a awesome wonderful environment.
    At a time when my life was at a crossroads and I needed help, MATR did just that for me. I walked in addicted, defeated, and hopeless, and I walked out clean, confident, and ready to face the road ahead. MATR and the principles taught there were integral to the stronger person I am today. I would recommend it many times over!

  • MATR was the perfect facility for me. I learned so much and felt loved and cared for. The self governing system was a great way for me to connect with other clients to help each other thru this process. MATR changed my life and continues to. Couldn't have picked a better place to get well and come back to life. Thank you MATR for giving me my life back!

  • This place saved my life, my sisters, my brothers, and my best friend. This place helped me to get clean. Most of all they helped me to change my negative thinking. I learned so many life lessons. As well as helping me to change my addict behaviours. They taught me how strong the power of your mind really is. That we can do anything when we learn our programs and how to be ok with our past. I highly recommend this place.
    I have referred many individuals to MATR, and have attended many of their open meetings. Two staff members in particular are skilled, compassionate, intuitive and run an amazing program!

  • I just needed to tell MATR thank you for saving my son. When we brought him home from Las Vegas we didn't think he was going to make it. But you gave him the help he needed. Thanks again we love having our son with his smile and out going personality back. I feel he is moving forward and going to be able to take care of him self. Again we will forever be in debt for what you and him were able to accomplish.

  • I did learn many things here, but I learned them from those I lived with and the staff that lived on-site. The owners are present for a few days a week for a few hours a day. Employees were under qualified. Saw the therapist (who visits one day per week, skipping some weeks) three times during my three months here. There are no physicians on site or on call. Policies are not consistent. Decisions are made emotionally and not rationally, and they depend very much on who you are and who you know. Would not recommend--even though I found help here, I was always made to feel like they were doing me a huge favor to have me there, when in fact I paid over $15K to attend. The same could have been found elsewhere with so much less stress.
