The NoRTH Cottonwood Heights Outpatient Program

The 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 Cottonwood, the NoRTH team supports community integration for the clients. At this level care, 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
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.
Recreation
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.

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 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.

 

Community Integration

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.

At Cottonwood, the NoRTH team supports community integration for the clients. At this level care, 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.  

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 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.
