New Roads Behavioral Health’s family of programs continues to expand in Utah. In an effort to address the burgeoning effect this has on New Roads’ existing facilities, leadership has secured a new 32-bed facility forty blocks south of downtown Salt Lake City. The growth can be attributed in large part to the growing recognition of New Roads’ clinical sophistication. The number one referral source is other programs, which recognize New Roads’ expertise in serving clients who may be more psychiatrically complicated, such as struggling with Borderline Personality Disorder or Schizophrenia.
The new facility, in the Millcreek area, will house the Residential and Transitional Dorm components of the Pathways to Healing (PaTH) program. PaTH serves young adult men suffering from substance use disorders, specializing in treating those with co-occurring mental health conditions. PaTH has gained distinction from its proven transitional program, boasting twenty-four life skills. Like all of the New Roads staff members, the PaTH team is highly trained in clinical approaches like Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Contingency Management, Life Coaching, Motivational Enhancement, etc.
The facility itself is spacious and well appointed, situated on a large plot. The rooms are very large, offering plenty of space for clients. There are multiple group rooms and therapy rooms. A newly hired chef, who comes from another high-end treatment program, enjoys a state-of-art kitchen. Visitors are awed by the Zen garden to one side of the facility. The garden is a shaded and tranquil place with pond and waterfall, offering a perfect spot for clients to practice their newly acquired meditation skills.
New Roads Behavioral Health’s family of treatment programs are based upon a holistic, community-focused treatment approach, with a foundation in research and results. New Roads has residential treatment, transitional living, and outpatient options for their clients. There are three distinct and completely separate programs within the residential and transitional living focus: Pathways to Healing (PATH), Women’s Road to Healing (WoRTH), and New Roads to Healing (NoRTH). PaTH is a dual-diagnosis treatment program for young men between the ages of 18-28 struggling with substance abuse and mental health concerns. WoRTH is a program designed specifically for young women that focuses on both substance abuse and mental health disorders (including borderline personality disorder) with a strong emphasis on Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). NoRTH is designed to assist clients with severe mental health disorders in achieving independence by teaching them how to successfully live a life with their diagnoses.
