With a 70-percent success rate, it was only a matter of time before doctors began recommending VistaBay’s Narconon-based drug rehabilitation program to patients. VistaBay offers residents in Utah and the surrounding areas the best chance at long-term sobriety, a fact confirmed by countless endorsements from medical professionals. Those struggling with drug addiction can find help with the drug rehabilitation Provo area residents and their doctors say transforms addicts into sober member of society. VistaBay’s drug rehabs in Utah and the surrounding areas really do work.

August 2010 – Medical professionals don’t lend their name to just any drug rehabilitation program. They must study the program, follow up with referred patients, and see results before providing any endorsement. When it comes to Utah drug rehabs and those in surrounding areas, doctors often recommend VistaBay and its Narconon approach to drug rehabilitation. Let’s hear from some of the professionals themselves:

Dr. Alfonzo Paredes, M.D. – board certified in psychiatry and neurology and a professor at UCLA School of Medicine – has this to say about the Narconon-based, VistaBay methodology that has helped so many patients at Utah drug rehabs:

“Addicts characteristically subordinate values such as work, family relationships and community responsibilities to the ingestion and unwise use of alcohol and/or drugs. Social neglect and criminal behavior are frequent companions of drug abuse and alcoholism. Efforts to develop a functional normative system, as it is done by Vista Bay, should result in favorable outcomes. Vista Bay has demonstrated that this redefinition of the normative system of addicts is possible to implement with empathy, compassion, and respect for the addict.”

Dr. Megan Shields, M.D. – a diplomat with the American Board of Family Practice who presents often on substance abuse and public health – concurs with her colleague about the Narconon-based, VistaBay program used at Drug Rehabilitation Provo area facilities:

“There is not often good news in our struggle with the consequences of alcohol and other drug abuse in our society. I am happy to say that the Vista Bay program is good news. I encourage you to review it carefully and consider utilizing it. Many years ago I did and I have been able to help save many lives as a result.”

These are just two of the many medical professionals who have endorsed VistaBay drug rehabs in Utah and the surround areas. VistaBay International research director Shelley Beckmann, PhD., offers these statistics to back up the good doctors’ endorsements:

“A recent outcome study examined 183 Vista Bay students 18 months after their graduation. Prior to their participation in the Vista Bay program, 81 percent had been incarcerated, 33 percent for longer than one month. Twenty two percent admitted to engaging in criminal activity for an average of 13 of the 30 days prior to starting the Vista Bay program. Eighteen months after graduation, only a remarkable 0.05 percent had been re-incarcerated.”

There’s no denying that VistaBay’s Narconon-based drug rehabs in Utah and the surrounding areas really do work. The open-ended, fixed-cost program’s combination of drug-free, sauna-based physical detoxification; life-education courses; and a relapse prevention plan result in the 70-percent success rate of which VistaBay founders are so proud. VistaBay founders believe so strongly in the Narconon-based treatment programs they have created, they offer a guarantee: If a Utah drug rehabs’ graduate sticks to his plan and relapses within six months, he can return for up to 30 days at no charge.

VistaBay recently graduated the 1,000th student from its Drug Rehabs in Utah and surrounding areas. To learn more about VistaBay, visit or call 877-599-6617. To schedule an interview with a member of the Utah Drug Rehabs team, contact director of admissions Lauren at or 800-556-8885.
