About Treatment: Mission & Treatment Philosophy
Our mission at New Roads Behavioral Health is to foster the development of happy individuals. The people that participate in our treatment programs have integrity. When learning about treatment and the recovery process at New Roads, you will find a great deal of focus on research and we are very results based. They are responsible, self-sufficient and actively contribute to a better future for themselves and the community. The journey to a healthy life begins with our affordable programs that are specially designed with each of our clients in mind.
Young adults challenged with substance abuse, mental health, personality disorders and other psychological and behavioral problems can experience a great deal of pain as they try to face each day. Our motivation comes from hope that every one can have a happy, healthy and successful life with a little help from those who care. Our team of therapeutic professionals aims to help each and every person that enters our rehab facility.
We view treatment a little differently.
Using our combined years of experience, leadership, and research, we believe we’ve created something better than your average “rehab.” We focus on treating our clients as whole and complex people, and helping them find and develop their identities, both as individuals and as members of a community. Our research-based treatment models combine the latest in addiction science with a cultivated community atmosphere, allowing us to guide clients through the recovery process with both efficiency and compassion.
Individualized care for every client
Recovery isn’t just about getting sober–it’s about learning healthy mental, emotional, and social coping skills, and solidifying those skills into habits. Undiagnosed mental health conditions or unresolved traumas often play a part in addiction as well, and it can take time for clients and their therapists to address these root causes. Each client is assessed individually, in order to determine their ideal length of stay in the program.
We focus on dual diagnosis.
Studies have shown that over 60% of addicts also have a mental health or personality disorder. Living with an undiagnosed mental health condition can make an individual’s life stressful, difficult, or even dangerous, and many turn to drugs and alcohol to escape.
Dual diagnosis is a methodology that treats addiction and mental health as connected and works to address both ends of the problem. Recognizing substance abuse as a symptom, and treating the underlying causes along with the addiction itself, gives our clients the best chance of getting–and staying–sober.
