The state of Utah has been gravely impacted by the United States’ opioid epidemic. Communities across the state are suffering from the effects of not only illegal heroin, but also legal prescription painkillers. In 2015, Utah’s number of yearly prescription opioid overdose deaths was almost four times as many as in 2000, just 10 years prior. On average, between six to 10 people in Utah are dying every week from both heroin and opioid abuse.
Utah—Bolstering Treatment, Supporting Lifelong Recovery
Utah’s government and local communities are doing everything they can to stop this surge in overdose deaths. The state’s Department of Substance Abuse and Mental Health (DSAMH) is making treatment more accessible and improving treatment services through evidence-based practices. Communities are getting involved in prevention campaigns and creating systems of support for recovering people.
Treatment facilities in Utah are collecting treatment outcomes and evaluating their current practices to find what works. If you or a loved one is struggling with substance abuse of any kind, treatment can open the door to recovery. There are quality treatment options available in Utah, and we can help you find them.

Utah’s Recovery Advocates
- Utah’s Department of Human Services (DHS) has a Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health (DSAMH), which is the state’s behavioral health authority. The DSAMH oversees Utah’s publicly funded prevention and treatment system, and connects people in need with quality treatment services.
- The DSAMH is involved in statewide prevention efforts, with Prevention Coordinators in every county. These coordinators help to implement prevention programs throughout Utah, seeking to prevent underage drinking, prescription drug abuse, and illicit drug abuse.
- In partnership with the Utah Pharmaceutical Drug Community Project and several other organizations, the DSAMH helps to sponsor Utah’s “Use Only As Directed” campaign. The educational campaign is designed to inform communities about safe use, storage, and disposal of prescription pain medications, in order to prevent misuse and abuse.
- ParentsEmpowered.org is an educational campaign funded by several state agencies in Utah. The campaign provides parents and guardians with information about teen alcohol use and strategies for preventing underage drinking.
- Utah Support Advocates for Recovery Awareness (USARA) is a non-profit organization, helping people across the state achieve long-term recovery from substance abuse. USARA seeks to involve the community in recovery efforts, advocates for fair legislation that affects recovering people, and manages a Recovery Community Center (RCC) where people in recovery can find resources and support.
