New Haven Residential Treatment Center Announces Stabilization and Assessment Program


Embark Behavioral Health, Leading Network of Outpatient Centers and Residential Programs Focused on Teens and Young Adults, Offers New Stabilization and Assessment Program for Girls in Salt Lake City Area

SAT LAKE CITY, June 14, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Embark Behavioral Health, a leading network of mental health treatment programs for young people and their families, now offers a full assessment and stabilization program at its New Haven residential treatment center in the Salt Lake and greater Utah County area. The program, located at New Haven's Spanish Fork campus, began taking patients in October 2023.

"We're proud of the work we're doing at New Haven to support adolescent girls experiencing significant risk factors. The assessment reassures loved ones that the program we offer is the right fit for the child," said Chris Tolen, Psy.D., New Haven director of stabilization and assessment.

The stabilization and assessment program at New Haven provides critical behavioral health care to girls ages 12-17 who require immediate attention due to the risk of self-harm or other significant risk factors. These individuals likely need thorough stabilization and assessment of their needs before transitioning to long-term care, which enables New Haven to offer a more comprehensive range of behavioral health services to address clients' and families' immediate concerns and pave the way for sustained support.

The program offers residential treatment for adolescent girls at an intermediate secure care level. New Haven's Stabilization and Assessment program is a beautiful single-family home and is located on New Haven's 23-acre campus. The program is separated from the other residential homes by an equine arena. The average length of stay is eight weeks. The program can serve 12 students and offers a staff-to-student ratio of one direct-care staff member for every three clients. The support is ideal for patients who are not thriving in a less restrictive environment.

"We're proud of the work we're doing at New Haven to support adolescent girls experiencing significant risk factors. The assessment reassures loved ones that the program we offer is the right fit for the child -- one that is conducive to reflection and growth," said Chris Tolen, Psy.D., New Haven director of stabilization and assessment.

The program uses the safe and sound protocol, which helps regulate the nervous system, making it less likely that a person will enter fight-or-flight mode, reduces the frequency of emotional outbursts, and achieves better control and expression of feelings. In addition to evidence-based safe and sound therapy that improves client capacity for connection and receptiveness to other therapies, clients will also have access to equine therapy, an art program, a ropes course, and yoga therapy.

Common struggles that the New Haven team works with at our Stabilization and Assessment program include the following: trauma, depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, attachment, self-harm, suicidal ideation with intent, neurodiversity, behavioral challenges, failed treatment/placement, or if the patient is a flight risk.

New Haven has been in operation for more than 25 years. For success stories from alumni patients and parents, visit https://www.newhavenrtc.com/alumni-stories/ For any questions or to talk to one of the New Haven staff members, call 866-805-1199 or email [email protected].
