Corner Canyon: New Name and New Team Members
To reflect the change in focus over the last two years from Primary Addiction Treatment to Primary Mental Health Treatment, Corner Canyon Recovery is changing to Corner Canyon Health Centers. They have found that their clients more frequently present with mental health concerns as a primary diagnosis. They have adapted their programing to meet the needs of these clients and are changing their name to more accurately describe provided services. To accommodate growth and clientele needs, they have welcomed four new team members.
Draper, Utah: Corner Canyon Health Centers believe that successful mental health and addiction treatment requires diagnosis and treatment of multiple underlying biochemical disorders in addition to sophisticated clinical intervention and supportive, caring personnel. When clients present with both diagnoses research indicates that treating them concurrently is important and necessary, and they have maintained strong addiction treatment components to most effectively help clients.
“Corner Canyon Health conducts a thorough Assessment of all measurable variables when clients enroll to direct treatment. We can correct many underlying problems within our facility, referring to other professionals when indicated. Corner Canyon Health Centers is innovative, seeking and using the most current research-validated effective treatment options available for the individual needs of our clients.“, says Cheryl Kehl, CEO at Corner Canyon Health Centers.
