We are Pinnacle Recovery - a Luxurious Refuge

Pinnacle Recovery was founded by industry professionals with decades of combined experience in personalized addiction treatment. Located in scenic Utah, we created a peaceful and luxurious refuge with a network of support for those who need to step away, focus on themselves, and truly heal from addiction.

Our mission

Our mission is simple – to provide those in need with the tools and refuge they need to heal properly. Inpatient rehab is at the root of real, lasting recovery. Treatment plans cannot be one-size-fits-all or only treat addiction symptoms. Our in-depth treatment plans at our luxurious facility include a variety of therapies and treatments, guided by professionals and personalized to your needs.

We commit to understanding your story, giving you a personalized plan of combined therapies and counseling with a case manager, and helping you to fully heal your mind, body, and spirit.

Our Philosophy

We believe that everyone deserves a full, lasting recovery. Addictions often stem from deeper, unresolved issues – we focus on healing the root of the addiction to reach that full recovery.

With our unique, personalized approach, focused on case management, dual diagnosis, and combined therapies, our inpatient rehab is the best of its kind in Utah. We are here to give you the refuge and tools you need to truly heal.

Dr. Heather Wark grew up in Nevada and then obtained a Bachelors’s in Neuroscience from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She spent several years traveling and working around the globe, then completed a combined M.D.-Ph.D. program at the University of Utah where she specialized in neuroscience and mental health. She completed her psychiatry residency at the University of Utah and is dedicated to working in addiction medicine. Her psychiatry practice is unique, in that she works toward whole-health treatment plans for each client individually. When possible, she will work with you to minimize medications at the earliest and safest opportunity. She will also spend time teaching you about medications to treat addiction. Most people with addiction do not know about the available medications to help assist them with recovery (called Medication-Assisted Treatment or MAT). Dr. Wark assures that all of the people who come to Pinnacle are taught about their options, and she will work with you to decide if MAT is appropriate to help with your recovery.

Brook earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Utah. She believes in meeting each client where they’re at and tailoring a treatment plan to satisfy their individual desires, hopes, and dreams.

She is comfortable working with many modalities including ACT, DBT, CBT, 12-step, and is trained in EMDR.
