TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
New Roads Behavioral Health uses evidence-based modalities to treat behavioral health issues including substance abuse and co-occurring issues.

Clients begin treatment with comprehensive biopsychosocial assessments. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and motivational interviewing (MI) are all used in the treatment process.
PaTH, the men only program, focuses on addressing substance abuse and mental health problem behaviors. WORTH is the women-only program that focuses on substance abuse and behavioral health concerns. While other behavioral health issues are addressed, the focus is on borderline personality disorder. Both programs involve individual and group counseling, as well as other treatment therapies to help clients address problem behaviors. Family counseling is also an important part of the program. Clients are involved in relapse prevention workshops and 12-step meetings. Residents also participate in planned recreational activities three time per week.
