TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Opioid treatment at the Bountiful clinic takes place in a few distinct phases: intake, induction, and maintenance. Appointments must be scheduled first.
At intake, clients meet with their physician-led team to develop personalized treatment and counseling plans. Different treatment options are discussed and any questions on the process are answered by doctor, nurse, and counselor.
In the induction phase, typically a few weeks in length, clients are monitored regularly to ensure that their medication is working optimally. They will also meet with their counselor to set goals and make necessary adjustments to their recovery plan.
The third and final phase is one of ongoing maintenance. As they reach an achievable level of steadiness and stabilization, clients continue meeting with their counselor and begin attending therapy and family groups. Work and relationships are just two of the many areas where clients and their families may see immediate improvement and healing.
The New Season treatment team consists of a program director, physician, counselors, a pharmacist, and nurses. Each clinic is also licensed and registered by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), and other credible organizations.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Feedback from an anonymous loved one is mixed. Although they shared ratings of three or more stars for most of the 15 different treatment areas assessed – like the counseling options, the family inclusion, and the staff’s level of experience – they also found the center “Convenient sometimes,” and even “Unreliable” insofar as it makes frequent operational changes.
According to New Seasons’ webpage, payment options include cash, debit or credit card, “and some forms of insurance.”
