Envision Recovery is just 15 minutes south of Provo, Utah. Founded in 2011 by Jolynn Oliver, the mother of a then struggling addict (her son, Dustin Long, is now Envision’s CEO), Envision Recovery offers a multi-faceted program of recovery. This comprehensive, Christian-friendly treatment center offers inpatient and outpatient programs for alcohol and drug addiction.
Accommodations and Food
The residential facility at Envision is a home-like setting and clients share their living quarters with one other client of the same gender. All rooms come equipped with a full-size bed, a closet and some storage space for personal items. There is a media room inside the house, which can be used during clients’ free time. Personal computers, cell phones or any electronics are not permitted at any time during treatment.
All meals are catered—offering healthy food options such as fish, chicken, vegetables, rice and pasta.
Treatment and Staff
Envision uses a combination of evidence-based treatment modalities to create their signature program. They integrate the spiritual principles of the 12-steps with individual and group therapy utilizing CBT, DBT and motivational interviewing. Other approaches include Biofeedback, Psychoeducation, Gestalt Theory, Psychodynamic Therapy and rational emotive therapy.
With all of these treatment options, clients of Envision enjoy a structured and full daily schedule—starting with a 7 am wake up immediately followed by exercise—client’s choice—at 7:15. Breakfast is at 8:00 am, meditation at 8:50 and a recovery goals group at 9:00. The rest of the day is a combination of individual therapy, various groups and structured free time, depending on the individual’s schedule. Each day ends with a group bonding session for all clients from 6:00 to 8:30 pm and a recovery goals wrap-up group from 9:00 to 10:00. Lights out is at 11:00 pm.
For those who are unable to take time off from work or family obligations, Envision offers 30-day outpatient and intensive outpatient (IOP) programs. The therapeutic approach is similar to the inpatient program, both outpatient and IOP are made up of group and individual therapy, as well as several education and processing groups. The outpatient program includes two group therapy meetings a week, with the option to schedule one individual session, if needed. Groups meet on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. IOP offers clients a more individualized treatment plan and an involved schedule, with three group therapy sessions a week and at least one individual session per month, with the option to schedule more if needed. Each client receives a minimum of 10 hours of treatment weekly.
The staff at Envision is made up of Master’s-level clinicians and LADCs.
Envision offers a wide variety of alternative therapies to their clients—like meditation, Sand Tray Therapy and Family Attachment Narrative Therapy. Inpatient clients at Envision get Saturdays off and are encouraged to enjoy the various activities offered—like the ropes course or the swimming pool. Off-site activities include trips to the movies, paintballing, river rafting, camping, hiking and horseback riding. Saturday and Sunday clients are provided transportation to attend church services of their choice.
Envision also offers intervention services upon request.
Envision offers many of the luxury treatment options available at high-end facilities at a comparably low price. While clients might not have breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean at Envision, they will enjoy the mountains of Utah in a calm, natural environment—something that is not easy to find in most programs of this caliber. For those of the Christian faith—or open to focused spirituality—Envision is a solid place to begin the road to recovery.
