Provo, Utah — New Roads Treatment Center has hired Dr. Jon Skidmore as new clinical director. Skidmore practices positive psychology and performance/life coaching and looks forward to impacting the lives of young adults at New Roads Treatment Center.

The drug treatment programs at New Roads target substance abuse problems by focusing on the person as a whole: mitigating self-destructive behaviors by repairing relationships, improving communication skills, exploring life road map development, developing self-esteem and addressing problems.

New Roads also offers mental health care to clients. The treatment center looks at past history of any mental health challenges, any psychiatric diagnoses, med and psychiatric management.

New Roads Treatment Center is dedicated to developing a group of programs that utilize therapeutic culture, science-based treatment, and simple caring to help young adults recover from addiction and emotional pain.
