Adult Detox

If you have insurance:

If you (or a loved one) need detox services and have insurance, you can go to any emergency room. You can call your insurance to see if detox services are covered.

If you do not have insurance:

If you do not have insurance, you can call Volunteers of America's (VOA) Alcohol and Drug Detox Center at (801) 363-9400.

VOA 's center is a 56-bed adult social model detoxification program. In this program, clients are assessed, screened for medical problems, participate in case management, and are referred to treatment. The center is located at 252 West Brooklyn Avenue (1025 South) Salt Lake City, UT 84101. You can also visit VOA's website for more information about their detox program. The facility is open 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, and the cost is based on a sliding fee scale.

VOA also has women specific groups, including 12 step meetings. Case management is available and clients can get a referral into a treatment program subsidized (when necessary and appropriated) by the county during their stay. There is a partnership with Christmas Box House for women with children under the age of 11 that need a safe place to be while their mother is detoxing. Please call the management team at the number listed above for more information (due to scheduling it may take a few days for this process to take place).
