Communicating Over the Internet
There are limits to protecting your confidentiality over the internet. While we do our utmost to preserve your confidentiality, we cannot provide a solid guarantee. Please consider the information you submit over the internet prior to sending.
In case of an emergency, use the telephone—and call either 801-461-9060 or 911.
We strongly discourage using email to send messages of a personal or confidential nature. Email is not secure, and can be read in transit by people other than the recipient. Sending email is like sending a letter in an unsealed envelope; most information you send is probably safe, but an unscrupulous person could read your message, change it, or even impersonate you. Email is copied, archived, and retransmitted continuously as part of normal processing. Because of this, please use email only to request information about our services, or other non-confidential matters.
There are several ways you can communicate with us without having to send information over the Internet:
- in person
- by phone
- by fax
- by mail
See contact information for the The Healing Group for details.
