Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
The term dual diagnosis treatment has been usurped recently. New Roads, with the on-site and full-time psychiatric care, provides true ASAM-defined Dual Diagnosis Enhanced (DDE) treatment.
Clinicians participated in an 80-hour comprehensive DBT training. Beyond this, most staff members have considerable DBT education, including DBT trauma treatment, DBT Substance Use Disorder treatment, and extensive mindfulness training. Notably, many of the direct care staff have received comprehensive DBT education, allowing them to offer in-the-moment skills and behavior coaching.
Comprehensive DBT Treatment
New Roads offers a comprehensive DBT program, which has been proven effective by more than 30 randomized controlled trials.
Comprehensive DBT programs necessarily include:
- Individual Therapy – Improve motivational factors
- DBT Skills – Enhance capabilities
- Structuring the Environment – Build healthy environment
- Telephone Consultation – Assure generalization to the natural environment
- Consultation Team – Enhance therapist capabilities
The above five modes and functions of DBT allow New Roads clinicians and staff members to help clients better identify the life they want, particularly in service of their high-level values. Clinicians help the client identify behaviors that prohibit them from moving towards their life worth living.
Clients then learn skills and new behaviors to replace these problematic behaviors. These behavioral-change approaches are applied concurrently with mindfulness and comprehensive acceptance strategies.
About Our Program

Thus, New Roads maintains collaborative relationships with payers, psychiatric hospitals, emergency rooms, law enforcement, etc. New Roads particularly coordinates with local mental health and general medical facilities.

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.
