Hospital Treatment (In-Patient, Out-Patient, Day Treatment Resources)

Click the buttons below to jump to your topic.




At this time, there are no dedicated inpatient, out-patient, or structured day treatment programs available within Summit County to treat patients experiencing a mental or behavioral health crisis. Patients experiencing a mental or behavioral health crisis may seek preliminary evaluation at Park City Hospital’s emergency room. However, once stabilized, patients are referred to other facilities as the hospital currently does not have dedicated psychiatric beds or staff.  Additionally, in the absence of detox/substance abuse support services within the County, the jail often becomes the crisis intervention of last resort.

Clients are involved in a full schedule of events, five days a week. Family members are involved in support groups on Monday and Thursday evenings. Depending on the patient’s needs and completion of the treatment plan, the average length of stay is four weeks. 3) Dayspring provides an evening substance abuse program that allows individuals to maintain their family and work responsibilities during the day and weekends but also participate in treatment. The program is a cost-effective means of treatment and is located at LDS Hospital.

Clients return once a week for up to two years to attend an Aftercare group where they review the skills and tools of recovery that they learned in the Dayspring programs.  Medications: Dayspring staff can prescribe relapse prevention medications such as Suboxone, Vivitrol, Campral, Antabuse, and naltrexone.
