Over 10 years ago, Dylan decided that his way of living was no longer working. The disease of addiction is progressive. At 23 years old it had progressed in his life to the point of being hospitalized for 30 days before going to residential treatment. It was a great place to start. After treatment, Dylan went back to school to obtain his license as a Substance Use Disorder Counselor. He is currently pursuing his master’s in social work at the University of Utah. Dylan believes treatment from both chemical dependency and/or mental health is crucial for someone to find meaning and purpose in their life. When an individual finds themselves at A/D Psychotherapy he wants them to know that they are cared for and not just a number. Treatment is necessary for a lot of people, but that is only the start of the journey.
