Heather Schnoebelen, LCMHCS, LCAS, CSS, CTT-II is a long-time friend of the Balance House Partnership and recently traveled to Utah to provide and facilitate an experiential processing workshop incorporating Psychodrama, Gestalt, and Somatic work for the entire Clinical Team at Balance House.

As the Balance House team works diligently to enhance their knowledge of different treatment modalities, they have also continued to learn and thrive throughout the global pandemic. With 100% compliance in staff covid vaccinations, Balance House has worked carefully to protect and keep clients safe as well as facilitate client vaccinations through the Salt Lake County Department of Health.
Balance House is a year-long continuum of care for young men ages 18-32 years old. We are located in Salt Lake City, Utah at the base of the Wasatch Mountains. Balance House offers four, distinct levels of care from residential treatment to independent, sober living. Residents of the program are offered a chance to explore the outdoors and beauty that Utah has to offer as well as to participate in group and evidenced-based treatment modalities. Our treatment program is different by design. We offer a space in which young men can help make decisions about their treatment plans and goals as well as feel supported as they begin to realize what is important to them outside of the treatment setting.
