The NoRTH Cottonwood Heights Outpatient Program
The New Roads Cottonwood Heights Outpatient Office (Cottonwood) houses some NoRTH PHP, Intensive Outpatient, and Outpatient levels. There, New Roads continues its Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team to offer multi-disciplinary treatment, including psychiatric intervention, to male clients with chronic persistent mental illness.
This program includes:
At New Roads Cottonwood, the NoRTH team supports community integration for the clients. At this level care, New Roads Cottonwood NoRTH clients participate in a life that their symptoms will allow. With proper medications and behavioral strategies clients with CPMI can become surprisingly productive and independent. Case managers support clients as they engage in meaningful activities, including volunteer work, vocational training, jobs, recreation, etc.
12-Step Group Meetings
Random Drug Testing
24/7 Staff Availability
Relapse Prevention Planning
Teaching independence, responsibility, and self-care.
While their peers have been learning the skills they need to be self-sufficient, many adults with mental health concerns have had to focus on surviving, one day at a time. To counteract this, “life skills training” is a major component of the New Roads Cottonwood NoRTH program. These skills range from the simple (how to keep a living space clean) to the more complex (how to apply and interview for jobs), but all are important pieces for building the foundation of a healthy, fulfilling life.
As in the RTC, the ACT team meets every morning to discuss each client and plan the day’s interventions, including therapies, vocational training, case management, recreation, etc. During morning meeting the effects of the psychiatric medications are reviewed and medical staff titrate medication appropriately.
Groups and therapy sessions are offered in the evenings and during the day, depending upon each client’s schedule. At Cottonwood, clients meet with their case managers, therapists, psychiatrists, etc.

While at Cottonwood, clients can live in New Roads housing (for a reasonable fee) or live at home. If living in New Roads housing, staff helps monitor their ADL’s, ensure medication compliance, participate in therapeutic activities, etc.
About Our Program
NoRTH clients are primarily referred from acute care hospitals and other programs followed by insurers themselves. New Roads has worked closely with Mental Health Courts.
New Roads maintains collaborative relationships with payers, psychiatric hospitals, emergency rooms, law enforcement, etc. These relationships, particularly the one with Utah Valley Regional Medical Center, are imperative in the treatment of clients whose acuity levels vacillate.
- Area: In the case of PHP, IOP, and OP, clients typically need housing in the Salt Lake County area.
- Business hours are 9:00 to 5:00 Monday through Friday. IOP groups are 6:00 to 9:00 Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
- Admissions are preferred Monday through Friday to ensure adequate and quick intervention.
- Lengths of stay (LOS) are based upon average historically approved spans by care managers. PHP LOS is on average 11 weeks. IOP LOS is an average of 35 days.
- Medical care is typically coordinated with community providers.
A Continuum of Care for Lasting Healing
Our New Roads Cottonwood team members are highly skilled in a variety of therapeutic modalities and techniques. We use a combination of evidence-based treatment methods, including dual diagnosis and individually tailored treatment to meet your specific needs.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
- Motivational Interviewing
- Psychiatric Oversight
Mindful preparation for a better future.
While our outpatient program is set up to handle both substance abuse and mental health issues individually, as well as dual diagnosis clients (co-occurring disorders). Since over half of those with substance abuse disorders have also been diagnosed with a mental health or personality disorder, we take this into account during all levels of care.
- Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (CBT/DBT)
- Motivational Interviewing
- Regular Drug Testing
- Regular Therapy Sessions (individual and/or group)
Active, Positive, Growth-Oriented Community
During residential treatment, we encourage our clients to practice maintaining healthy, balanced lifestyle. In addition to addiction, self-harm, and other destructive habits, many adults struggle with rigid thinking patterns. These hamper our ability to learn, change, and progress. Creative expression, thought exercises, and physical activity can help break this rigidity, allowing our clients to achieve greater emotional freedom and growth.
