Offering a range of services to individuals struggling with addiction, co-occurring mental health problems, and other chronic health issues, the Retreat at Zion is a multidisciplinary residential rehab facility located in Rockville, Utah. Set at the entrance to Zion National Park, the upscale facility boasts a picturesque, natural setting conducive to recovery.

If necessary, the facility provides customized, medically monitored detoxification, which includes alternative body cleansing methods to remove toxins and minimize withdrawal symptoms. In addition to its residential services, the Retreat at Zion also facilitates interventions and will organize travel arrangements for its clients.


The Retreat at Zion combines traditional treatment methods with a robust offering of holistic and alternative techniques. The addiction recovery program includes individual and group therapy, educational seminars, EEG biofeedback, and neural re-patterning using electro-stimulation.

The facility also offers an introduction to the 12-step model of recovery and considers recreational therapy, experiential therapy, proper nutrition, physical health, and holistic treatment integral to overall recovery. Alternative treatments include equine therapy, creative arts therapy, yoga and meditation, music therapy, sweat lodge purification, and personal fitness training.

Taking advantage of the facility’s proximity to Zion National Park, clients also have the opportunity to participate in rock climbing, rappelling, zip-lining, canyoneering, mountain biking, water sports, and camping.

  • I have been in treatment 3 times and this time it stuck. The programs were not your typical all day group sessions. We did a lot of hiking, exercise, individual counseling mixed with a 12 step program as well. I really enjoyed my stay and program. The support of the counselors, group and individual along with the added outdoor activities in Zion National Park was exactly what I needed to have. I felt like I started living again for the first time in 10 years
