Our recovery center staff at Bear River Health consists of caring professionals committed to excellence.

We work together to provide a safe and confidential environment while communicating with clients one-on-one and in group settings to help them achieve their recovery goals. Our staff utilizes a team approach to ensure that all clients receive a comprehensive, in-depth treatment experience. Each client works with a select group of professionals over the course of his or her recovery treatment to achieve the maximum results. Our staff takes pride in the success of our patients and the many ways our programs benefit their lives.

Our Medical Team

Bear River Health’s professional staff includes Board Certified Specialists and experienced midlevel providers in drug and alcohol treatment. We pride ourselves on our compassionate and empathetic staff, many of whom are currently living in recovery. Our staff members are ready and willing to talk with interested parties about our goals, methodology and treatment services for various substance abuse recovery and behavioral health issues. We strive to always be available to listen to and guide our clients and their families. That is why we have been instrumental in helping patients overcome drug and alcohol use.
