Founded in 2002 by Joshua and Lisa Lannon with one center and a staff of four, Journey Healing Centers has since expanded to six locations with more than 100 team members.

Journey Healing Centers provides the full continuum of addiction treatment services, from residential treatment and sober living to day treatment and intensive outpatient care. Its network of treatment centers is accredited by the Joint Commission and includes a wide range of program offerings:

  • The Retreat, Scottsdale, AZ – an exclusive residential substance abuse and dual diagnosis treatment center in an idyllic setting in the high desert that offers world-class amenities including a gourmet chef, a private pool and Jacuzzi, and an onsite gym.
  • The Sundance Center, Scottsdale, AZ – a residential addiction and dual diagnosis treatment center located in a private residential neighborhood in Scottsdale.
  • Journey Utah, Salt Lake City, UT – a client centered, exclusive addiction treatment center located near the base of the Wasatch Mountain Range.
  • Creekside, Salt Lake City, UT – a residential long-term care treatment center in a private, luxurious home.
  • Sober Living, Salt Lake City, UT – a safe, structured and secure community that helps men and women transition from residential treatment back into the community.

Journey Healing Centers has been featured in USA Today, Psychology Today, Discovery Channel, People Magazine, NPR, Fox News and other media outlets.
