New Roads uses an Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team to offer multi-disciplinary treatment, including psychiatric intervention, to male clients with chronic persistent mental illness, such as Schizophrenia, Borderline Personality, and Bipolar disorders. The ACT team consists of therapists, the Program Director, two case managers, a Psychiatrist, a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, a Medical Assistant, and other ad hoc members, making the roads to healing easily accessible. The 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.

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. Find the roads to healing that are best for you or your loved one.
The goal of NoRTH is community integration for the clients. NoRTH clients are encouraged to begin to participate in a life outside of Residential as soon as they are reasonably stable. Case managers help clients find meaningful activities, including volunteer work, vocational training, jobs, recreation, etc.
To this end, many clients participate in a ‘dorm’ level of care. Clients will leave the facility during the day to participate in their activities. They then return during the evenings to monitor their ADL’s, ensure medication compliance, participate in therapeutic activities, etc. Eventually, clients can move into apartments or home while participating in PHP.
About Our Program
Typically, NoRTH clients are referred from acute care settings, insurers, or other programs who are not well-equipped to manage their symptoms.
Thus, 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.
- Areas: Because it is an RTC, NoRTH can serve clients from throughout Utah. In the case of PHP, clients typically need housing in the Provo/Utah County area.
- The NoRTH program accepts clients 365 days per year
- Admissions are preferred Monday through Friday to ensure adequate and quick intervention. However, New Roads understands that weekend admissions are sometimes unavoidable.
- Lengths of stay (LOS) are based upon average historically approved spans by care managers. Residential LOS is on average 27 days. PHP LOS is on average 11 weeks.
- Basic medical services are offered by a Physician’s Assistant one day a week at the Provo facility.

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.
