Mental health center in Weber County, Utah

At Ogden Regional Medical Center, we are dedicated to offering compassion and dignity as we treat people who have mental health issues. As part of this, our doctors are "trauma aware," understanding how past experiences have a significant influence on an individual's current experience. When a patient first visits us for an assessment, we specifically ask about past trauma. This is a way to help us develop improved treatment planning, greater understanding of a patient's current behavior and an increased awareness of traumatic triggers.

For Mental Health Intensive Outpatient (IOP) intake, please call (801) 479-2610.

Substance abuse program

Addiction specialists at our Alcohol and Chemical Treatment (ACT) Center help patients cope with the many behavioral, psychological and social factors that contribute to substance use. That's why we now offer five addiction recovery programs. Patients can participate in any program separately or transition through various levels as they go through substance abuse treatment. This comprehensive approach offers new hope for achieving long-term sobriety.

Our five distinct levels of care include:

  • Medical detox program
  • Partial hospitalization (day-treatment) program: 28 days
  • Inpatient treatment program: 28 days
  • Residential program: 30-90 days
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP): 56 days

We now also offer a virtual intensive outpatient drug and alcohol recovery program. This program helps patients recover and maintain sobriety even when they can't leave the house.

Pet therapy

We are proud to offer pet therapy at our hospital for our patients and guests. An animal visit to a hospitalized patient can lift spirits, lower blood pressure, induce relaxation, reduce stress, decrease loneliness and bring a bit of diversion and enrichment to their day.

We work only with accredited pet therapy providers. Each owner/pet team meets stringent membership, behavior and grooming requirements, including:

  • Pet teams are currently certified society members and have completed/renewed training
  • Pet owners have passed a background check
  • Pet owners provide proof of their pet's current veterinary exam and vaccinations
  • Pet teams complete hospital orientation and follow hospital procedures and protocol regarding infection control, safety, ethics, confidentiality and privacy
  • Therapy animals are groomed according to society standards immediately prior to a hospital visit, this includes: bathing, nails clipped, teeth brushed, ears cleaned, dander/order spray applied and coat brushed

Participating in pet therapy

Visits are based on the patient’s condition and team availability. Pet teams serve as hospital volunteers, wearing a uniform and badge. A team may not be available every day. The nurse will let patients know when a pet team is scheduled on the unit.

What to expect during pet therapy

Therapy animals are non-threatening, affectionate and nurturing creatures who offer warm companionship and unconditional love to patients. Patients can expect this type of interaction during pet therapy. First, the pet owner will introduce the team and position a clean pad for the animal to sit or lay upon. Patients are invited to stroke and visit with the animal. At the conclusion of the visit, the owner will assist the patient with hand cleaning and dispose of the pad.

Personal pets in the hospital

Personal pets may visit only with approval after meeting the hospital’s stringent health and grooming standards. Ask for policy AB946-49 Animals and Pets in the Hospital.
