our history

bud-harper

Bud Harper, our founder, decided to open Maple Mountain Recovery after he was involved as the co-creator of Village Heathcare Center, a facility created for the long-to-life care of patients suffering from catastrophic brain and spinal cord injuries Most patients were in a coma and tube fed, requiring constant care. After working through the construction phase, Mr. Harper worked in nearly all aspects of the business including duties as CFO, patient-family relations and assisting with the patients, as well. The facility has been a major success in this niche market. In the seven years of its operation the facility has remained full and there has not been a single vacancy for a period of more than two weeks. Following that facility he moved to Utah and saw a need for those people who suffer from the disease of addiction to get help. He then opened Maple Mountain Recovery on February 25, 2014.

Our therapists aren’t only experts in treating addiction, they are also skilled mental health practitioners. We understand using alcohol and drugs is a maladaptive coping skill. Our facility provides addiction recovery programs, as well as treatment for underlying issues such as mental health problems, trauma, personality disorders, and environmental issues. Most clients have a dual diagnosis, which means they are not only healing from addiction, but also mental health problems such as bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, PTSD and so on. You can count on our treatment professionals to treat you with respect, care, and understanding while you are in treatment. Our number one priority is safety, and when clients feel safe in our facility, they can start healing from their trauma.

DR. TERRY SELLERS

MD

Dr. Terry L. Sellers believes he is a lucky man. He spends his days surrounded by people he loves working in a profession which creates passion and energy for him. Through his experience, education, and life lessons he is now able to work in the addiction field as a board certified addiction medicine physician. To Dr. Sellers, this means he is able to give back to others the hope and freedom that was given to him over ten years ago when he was struggling with his own opiate addiction.
Dr. Sellers grew up in Clearwater, Florida. He received his medical degree from Saint Louis University School of Medicine and completed an OB/GYN residency at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. Dr. Sellers practiced Obstetrics and Gynecology in Provo, UT for 12 years, delivering over 6,000 babies. Years of migraine headaches sparked his addiction to pain medications. He spent many years suffering with a desire to stop using opiates and the inability to do so. He ultimately decided to get help using substance abuse treatment and gave up his lifestyle of being a solo obstetrician. He now has 10 years of recovery from drug addiction and is rigorously active in the recovery community. Living a recovery lifestyle for the past decade has created a new perspective on life and what is important to him.
Ultimately, Dr. Sellers is now passionate about being of service to the suffering addict in any capacity he is able to provide. He has a relentless desire to offer to others hope and the permission to change course and direction from the devastating use of drugs and alcohol. Dr. Sellers is married with three adult children and four grandchildren. He enjoys golf, sushi, traveling, and humanitarian endeavors.

RYAN HYMAS

Program Manager

I grew up in the Salt Lake City area where I worked in the medical field for 10 years. I am currently working on becoming a Substance Abuse Counselor. I have been in recovery from heroin and alcohol for 3 years and now live in Springville with my wife and 2 beautiful little girls. As the Program Manager for Maple Mountain Recovery, my duties include doing the intake and discharge paperwork for new clients. I also assist in their admission process. I hire and train techs to be able to work effectively with the clients and create the daily schedules for both the techs and the clients. I work at Maple Mountain because I love the approach of the clinical director, the clinical team and the owner. I have worked at other facilities but have never experienced the positive surroundings and care that Maple Mountain creates and gives to it’s clients.
