We hold hope and the fundamental belief
that all clients can get better.
Just when all hope was lost, I walked through these doors and found a new will to live. I could never imagine this day would ever happen. Thank you to the therapists, thank you to the mentoring staff, and thank you to my peers! I have found what it actually means to live a full life worth living.
Introduction to the New Roads Family of Services
Our mission is to foster the development of happy individuals by treating our clients as whole and complex people who want to get better. We help them build value-based lives, both as individuals and members of a community.
Our evidence-based treatment models combine the latest in mental health treatment with a cultivated community atmosphere, allowing us to guide clients through the mental health recovery process with both efficiency and compassion.
New Roads Behavioral Health offers multiple levels of care, each focused on a specific population. Our programs are results-driven, proven to provide better long-term success. These levels of care include: Residential, Transitional Living, Partial Hospitalization (PHP/day treatment), Intensive Outpatient (IOP), General Outpatient (GOP), and Psychiatric Outpatient.
New Roads invests heavily in the training of staff, including direct support staff, to ensure the ability to meet the unique treatment needs of clients with complex mental health diagnoses, enabling them to build a road towards a life worth living.
Our team was incredibly grateful to receive an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) training from the owner of The Autism Clinic in Salt Lake City, Dr. Julia Connelly, Ph.D. This training will help our staff continue to be a support to our clients who have ASD.
Our clinical team is completing an Intensive Intramural DBT training
Eric Schmidt, a Linehan Board Certified DBT Clinician, begins another round of intensive DBT training for New Roads employees. The first of four two-day trainings focused on an introduction to Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and learning the three “threads” that run through applying DBT: Acceptance/Validation, Dialectics (Therapist Dialectic Characteristics), and Contingency Management (behavioral change to better move you towards your goals). Attendees included new therapists, some direct care staff, and even a grave shift worker. These trainings help the staff conduct care in more unified way and help them apply counseling, therapy, and milieu management in a compassionate and effective way.
Our team was lucky enough to receive a gender affirming care training from the lead therapist at Encircle, Jack Haden. Encircle is an LGBTQ+ resource for youth and families.
New Roads Behavioral Health is extremely proud to announce that our clinical staff, led by Eric Schmidt, CEO, MSSW, LCSW recently completed their certification for CAMS: Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality to better serve our clients with suicidal ideation.
The CEO of New Roads, Eric Schmidt, travels around the country to train clinicans and mental health industry leaders about Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). In early November 2022, Eric was a featured speaker at the 38th Annual Gult Coast Conference on Addiction and Recovery.
