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, local criminal justice and treatment services to make services available to their clients. You may have seen us already within the local community at the Northern Utah Prevention & Recovery Day, the Weber County Recovery Expo, and other local 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 to address substance use disorder in Ogden.
The Ogden office is staffed with two full-time Peer Recovery Coaches. The coaches are both people in long-term recovery and meet with participants one-on-one to address issues related to substance use and mental health disorders. USARA Coaches strive to meet each participant uniquely where they are on their individual recovery journey and work with them to achieve self-identified goals. Coaches advocate for and support participants as they develop purpose and self-empowerment in their lives. USARA coaches are excited to be working in the Ogden recovery community, to share their personal lived experience with addiction and to build stronger communities of recovery statewide.
USARA Weber County has a variety of peer-led mutual aid groups through which individuals can find connection and recovery support. We currently host the only Heroin Anonymous group, Recovery Dharma group, 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.
The Recovery Community Center is always looking for volunteers and has space open for members to host a recovery mutual aid group.
