A Residential Treatment Center in Utah

Cirque Lodge offers residential rehabilitation programs for drug and alcohol abuse as well as addiction recovery services.

We understand that addiction is not a choice, and we firmly believe that rehabilitation is not a punishment. Our programs provide the most effective addiction treatment that nurtures personal development in a supportive environment to make a truly amazing experience.

Our experienced medical and clinical teams combine their extensive scientific knowledge to create a treatment plan just for you. We understand the importance of treating co-occurring conditions and offer integrated treatment programs that treat mental health disorders and substance abuse issues as a result.

Alumni Retreats

Some of the feedback we have received over the years pertaining to our Alumni Retreats is to have several smaller events during the year.

Meghan Hoyt, our Director of Alumni Services, has coordinated some wonderful alumni retreats that fulfill this request. In the winter, we get together and do some skiing, tubing and always make sure we check in with gratitude and 12-step meetings. When it warms up, we have gone to California for a paddleboarding retreat in Malibu, always following the mantra to keep our alumni connected.

Once again, the best way to stay in the loop on upcoming activities, dinners and retreats is to be on our email contact list. Please contact Meghan Hoyt at today for more details.

Alumni Events

Staying in contact with the place you became sober helps you remain committed and dedicated to recovery. It is a source of support to guide you through challenging times.

We host a series of events throughout the year, including 12-step meetings and alumni dinners and gatherings. Most of our events occur at our rehab center, meet and greets, and via zoom.

We have developed a community app for you to stay in touch with the Cirque Lodge community for alumni who cannot attend events in person. The invite-only app is a safe and private platform where you can find support when you need it.

What Is Addiction?

Addiction is a complex illness that causes you to compulsively seek and use a substance or engage in a behavior, even when it is harmful to your health and well-being.

It is usually classified as a brain disorder because there are changes in the brain that remain, even when you have stopped using the drug. Addiction typically causes changes in the parts of the brain that affect self-control, stress, and feelings of reward.

An addiction can be physical, psychological, or both. Psychological addiction is when you feel that you can’t cope with life without drugs. Physical addiction is where your body is dependent on drugs to function normally.

Both types of addiction are equally devastating and can be extremely dangerous if left untreated.

If you have an addiction, it can seem like recovery is an impossible goal. But with commitment and support, lifelong recovery is possible for anyone.

At Cirque Lodge, our individualized recovery programs combine behavioral therapies, experiential therapy, and support groups to offer you the most effective treatment experience.

Our luxury facilities, situated in the spectacular Rocky Mountains, are the perfect place to overcome your addiction, develop new self-management skills, and reconnect you with your love of life.

Guesting Privilege

Our guesting privilege program offers all alumni the opportunity to return to our center free of charge for three to four days to refocus their efforts on recovery.

Recovery from addiction isn’t easy, and there will inevitably be challenges ahead. The road to recovery is long and requires sustained commitment. Guesting privilege is a chance to re-energize, re-focus, and re-commit in the place you initially got sober. You may want to return to the center because you are worried about a relapse or simply as a motivational boost.

When you return to our center, you will be a role model for others. You will show those at the start of the treatment process that overcoming addiction is possible, and you’ll demonstrate how valuable sober life can be. Inspiring others is a powerful experience that consolidates your recovery and gives you the motivation to continue.

What Causes Addiction?

Several factors can contribute and make drug use and addiction more likely.

Relapse Track

Addiction is a chronic disease involving long-lasting changes in the brain. These changes may produce urges for drugs even after long periods of sobriety. For some people, relapse is a part of their recovery process.

Our relapse track program is a two-week inpatient treatment program of behavioral therapies, experiential therapies, and support groups. We help you to overcome your relapse and continue on your recovery journey.

Relapsing is not a failure, and it is not a step back to square one. Treating relapse involves identifying why you returned to substance use and developing skills to prevent it from happening again. It may require making adjustments to your aftercare plan or everyday routines. You build on your personal growth from your first treatment experience and you’ll return to daily life stronger and better equipped.

If you have returned to alcohol or drug use, even just once or twice, please contact us immediately at Cirque Lodge. The earlier you ask for help, the easier getting back on track will be.
