For over 35 years, the Utah’s Ute Indian Tribe has provided co-ed inpatient treatment at its Red Pine Residential Treatment Center. Headquartered in Fort Duchesne, the Ute reside in Northeastern Utah on over four million acres of land. The Ute also offer culturally-sensitive outpatient treatment on the reservation and have a limited capacity to treat local residents who are not tribal members.
Accommodations and Food
Clients reside in a treatment facility that houses 16 residents at a time. Men and women occupy opposite wings and have roommates. Residents are not permitted computers or cell phones in treatment but may use the house phone under supervision during the first two weeks of treatment. For recreation, residents can take walks on the scenic grounds and use either of the reservation’s two gym facilities.
Before beginning treatment, residents fill out a food questionnaire that inquires of allergies, likes/dislikes and how a resident thinks their nutrition can affect their recovery goals. The staff cook takes these preferences into account while menu planning.
Treatment and Staff
Most residents stay at Red Pine for 65 days, though some may choose to extend their stay. After their intake session, residents receive a treatment plan that includes a schedule of group and individual therapy and life skills classes. Clients also take part in daily Wellbriety meetings and other culturally-sensitive peer support activities.
The treatment team includes Master’s-level therapists such as LCSWs and Licensed Mental Health Counselors (LMHCs) who use CBT, Moral Recognition Therapy (MRT) and Trauma Informed Care (TIC). While co-occurring disorders are addressed in therapy, Red Pine does not specialize in dual diagnosis support. The treatment team transports clients exhibiting mental health disorder symptoms to a local psychiatrist for evaluation.
After their initial two-week stabilization period, residents can have family members visit. They can also use the reservation’s library and education center to study for their GED or pursue other education goals.
For nearly four decades, the Ute Indian Tribe’s Red Pine Residential Treatment Center has provided a structured two-month residential program that incorporates evidence-based treatment and culturally-sensitive peer support activities. With its small size and adjoining outpatient clinic, Red Pine offers tribe members no-cost residential treatment that gives clients individual attention and flexible on-going support.
