FEATURE — Lion’s Gate Recovery, a private substance abuse treatment facility, recently opened doors on a new location in Cedar City.
Building on the success of programs located in Toquerville and St. George, Operations Director Josh Campbell and Clinical Director Aaron Ward –themselves recovering addicts – are excited to be able to bring their program to Cedar City.
There was an overwhelming need in Cedar City for a private treatment facility, Campbell said, to help the growing community address substance abuse.
Judges, attorneys, probation officers and families had all reached out to him to see if Lion’s Gate Recovery could help, Campbell said.
The new facility opened March 1. It is already receiving a ton of positive feedback for the lifesaving services the facility provides, he said, adding:
“We’re here to help Cedar City families who are struggling with addiction. The community has been very welcoming.”
Lion’s Gate’s success is due in large part to both Campbell and Ward’s own experiences with addiction and recovery. The pair have the unique ability to empathize with and reach patients on a personal level – patients like Amanda Stanger, who credits Campbell and Ward with giving her the tools of recovery and transforming her life.
In her own words, Stanger told St. George News how much Campbell and Ward helped her.
I can’t say enough good things about Aaron Ward and Josh Campbell, they gave me the tools that helped me pull myself out of the hell I was in to live a happy and healthy, substance-free life.
They loved me until I could love myself, helped me find my self worth, and today, I have a choice.
Before I started the program with Aaron and Josh, I was hopeless and helpless and had tried everything and nothing worked until I decided to work with them. Today, I have almost 2 years clean from alcohol and drugs, I am a productive member of society and I get to be the mom that my daughter needs and deserves.
I have been able to gain a spiritual connection, a relationship with myself and repair my family relationships. I am forever grateful for my sobriety and the life I live today is beautiful. Aaron and Josh paved the way as my predecessors in recovery from drugs and alcohol. I am eternally grateful for these men and the work they do.
