Since coming to the beautiful city of Moab in 2014, we at USARA – Moab have established two weekly mutual self help groups that honor and support those in all stages of recovery. We offer one-on-one coaching in which we help individuals find their own pathway to recovery while utilizing various skills and tools learned from programs like Seeking Safety and Smart Recovery. We also offer a support group for families and loved ones of those with a substance use disorder in the form of CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training). Along with individual and family support, we host family friendly activities monthly, community clean-ups, and so much more.
We at USARA – Moab have built relationships and connections with multiple agencies in our community over the years, which has helped make it possible for us to provide the variety of support and resources we now have available. We believe that recovery is a personal journey and that every pathway and voice deserves to be heard, supported, and celebrated. Connect with us below!


Lanette Denton

Peer Recovery Coach

(435) 210-0952

Lanette is a woman in long term recovery since 2014. Her journey has brought her to a place where she is able to share her lived experience as a Peer Recovery Coach for USARA in the Southeastern Utah area.

Recovery is the most important thing in her life, it enables her to maintain her family and the things that are important to her. Lanette’s gratitude seems like a never ending stream and when she wakes up each day to the blessing of having her children with her, a safe home for them, and heading out to a job she loves that allows room for not only helping others; but a space where she can learn as an individual, a woman, and a mother.

She says, “I feel like I have everything that I have ever wanted. I will be celebrating another year in long term recovery in July of this year. I want to shout out to the world that recovery is possible and to never give up!”
