Pathways to Healing

When addiction stops, the rest of your life begins


Comprehensive, Individualized, Community Oriented

Many young adults struggle with addiction and often suffer from comobid mental health conditions that make it easy to become addicted and difficult to quit. Pathways to healing (PaTH) is a dual-diagnosis treatment program designed for young men whose lives have been affected by substance abuse. By putting individuals in the driver’s seat of their own recovery we encourage the growth of coping strategies, life skills, and self-reliance—helping our clients become the best versions of themselves.

Pathways Program at New Roads Behavioral Health

This program includes:

12-Step Group Meetings
The 12-Step process has been in use for decades by Alcoholics Anonymous and other addiction recovery programs. These meetings offer clients the chance to commit to sobriety together, share experiences and struggles, and begin to develop a healthier mindset and lifestyle.
Random Drug Testing
Drug testing is the most obvious way to tell whether a client’s recovery process is on track, or whether they need additional help with relapse prevention.
Medical Management
Many of our clients require regular medication to help them manage mental illnesses or other conditions. We will help them stay on schedule, refill their prescriptions, and ensure their medical well-being. (Additional cost will apply.)
24/7 Staff Availability
In case of emergency, personal crisis, or any other need, our clients are able to contact staff members at any time, day or night.
Group Sessions
These group therapy meetings typically focus on one aspect of treatment at a time, allowing clients to come together to practice their recovery skills. Topics include DBT, cognitive behavior, life skills training, and more.
Individual Sessions
It is important for all our clients to have a safe space to talk to a knowledgeable, caring professional. One-on-one time with a therapist allows them to share their thoughts, feelings, and concerns without fear of judgement, and helps us determine how best to support their recovery.
Family Sessions
As family members, your support is crucial to your loved one’s healing process. If you are unable to attend in-person, these meetings can take place over the phone, or through Skype.
Relapse Prevention Planning
Relapses can happen to anyone, and are often discouraging. This is why we help each client develop a personal relapse prevention plan from the very beginning of treatment, to stop slip-ups before they happen.
Residential Facility
Residential facility at New Roads Behavioral Health is located in Utah. Providing the best in medical, psychological and group therapies.
Our treatment programs incorporate a variety of recreational activities including: bowling, skiing, basketball, hiking and more.
Transitional Program
For some of our clients, residential care isn’t quite enough to help them get back on their feet. Our transitional program provides these clients with ongoing medical oversight and therapeutic support, while helping them build the skills they need to move forward in their lives.

We offer semi-independent apartment living, life skills training, education and internship opportunities, and more—all geared toward ensuring a healthy, successful, sober future.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is recognized as one of the most useful treatments for borderline individuals. Our therapists have been extensively trained at the Portland DBT Institute and we offer this treatment process for every client due to the broad scope of its treatment potential.

Mindfulness & Meditation

Using techniques derived from Buddhist practices, clients learn to focus non-judgmentally on the world around them, bringing their rational and emotional minds into balance. They learn to stop judging themselves so harshly, and to quietly observe their intense thoughts and feelings rather than immediately reacting to them.

Emotional Regulation

Getting hijacked by emotions in a time of crisis can be damaging. DBT offers skills for identifying, understanding, and managing these emotions, no matter how overwhelming they may seem. By applying techniques from other DBT skill sets, such as mindfulness and distress tolerance, clients learn to control their feelings rather than being controlled by them.

Distress Tolerance

Most of our clients are used to handling distress in harmful ways, such as drinking or using drugs. We teach skills to offer a healthier alternative. Clients learn how to accept and tolerate distress in an observant, nonjudgemental fashion—and to make more appropriate, less destructive decisions.

Interpersonal Effectiveness

These relationship skills focus on helping individuals interact positively and productively with others. We teach our clients how to get their needs met, how to handle conflict, and how to keep their interpersonal relationships strong without resorting to manipulation or other destructive behaviors.

A Continuum of Care for Lasting  Healing

Our 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


Who Says Treatment Can’t Be Fun?

  • Three recreational sessions a week
  • Basketball, volleyball, table tennis, pool, ping pong, and foosball
  • Access to books, television, and video games
  • Open spaces for jogging, skateboarding, and other outdoor recreation


During residential treatment, we encourage our clients to practice maintaining healthy, balanced lifestyle. In addition to addiction, self-harm, and other destructive habits, many young 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.
