Located in the heart of Ogden, in the Three Link Towers Building, USARA Weber County has had its doors open since July of 2019.
Since opening, USARA Weber County has formed relationships with Weber Human Services, Criminal Justice Services, and local treatment facilities. We have participated within the local community at Northern Utah Prevention & Recovery Day, the Weber County Recovery Expo, and other events. USARA has also developed ongoing relationships with community partners including the Intensive Community Aftercare Program (ICAP) and the Opioid Awareness team through the Weber Health Department.
The office in Ogden is staffed with two full-time Peer Recovery Coaches. They are both people in long-term recovery and can meet one-on-one with individuals with substance use disorders. Our Coaches strive to meet individuals where they are in their recovery journey and help them achieve goals by working on their recovery capital. They advocate for and support them in developing purpose and self-empowerment in their lives so that people can sustain long-term recovery themselves in the community.
USARA Weber County has a variety of peer-led mutual aid groups through which individuals can find connection and recovery support in the community in which they live. We currently host the only Heroin Anonymous, Recovery Dharma, and SMART Recovery meetings in the area. We also host a weekly Family Support Group based on the Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) model for friends and loved ones of those with a substance use disorder.
