Nestled amidst the pristine and breathtaking mountains of famed Sundance, Utah, Cirque Lodge offers the ultimate in privacy for those seeking the very best in alcohol or drug treatment.

Cirque Lodge has an experienced team of professionals dedicated to creating the ultimate center in exclusive and private drug rehabilitation; committed to providing an atmosphere of safety, compassion, respect, and dignity. Take a listen to the wisdom shared in my personal meetings with Cirque Lodge’s executive staff.

Gary Fisher
Executive Director at Cirque Lodge

Gary Fisher is the executive director at Cirque Lodge and brings his more than 20 years of experience in the behavioral health field to the facility along with the many titles he carries in the industry as a leader and voice of healing and prevention. Gary sits on the Board of Directors for the Utah Council for Crime Prevention, the Board of Directors for the Recovery Management Alliance, and the Board of Directors for the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers, as well as being the past chair for NAATP Leadership Convention.

In our interview you will uncover Gary’s tireless commitment to service. ‘He has worked tirelessly carrying the message of hope to the addict and alcoholic who still suffers. In 2010 he received the Promises Foundation award for Distinguished Service in the Field of Recovery.’

We discuss the special focus on the experiential programs offered in equine, arts and music therapy amidst a special natural healing environment, the cirque, an historic glacier creating the ideal setting for recovery from addictions and co-occurring disorders. As they like to say at the Lodge, ‘It’s in our Nature.’

The facility guides traditional cognitive behavioral therapies augmented with experiential therapies;

outside atop the mountain or indoor on a challenge course or performance equine or music arts therapy. As the yearly movie and theater festivals draw crowds to this area, the facility reflects its love of the arts, by encouraging you to bring your creative true self here and take advantage of the natural environment to heal.

The Cirque Lodge facilties afford guests with options of a highly individualized detox program  private or residential treatment programs as well as a step-up partial-hospitalization program.
