2015 marks our 20th anniversary of healing families. We realize the work we engage in is unique and very special. We are grateful for the trust so many families have bestowed upon us. We have learned so much from the many wonderful people along the way who have expanded our New Haven Family. We are looking forward to what the future will bring!See our approach
We have a vision of a world where every young woman makes peace with her past, thrives in the present, and creates a hopeful future hand-in-hand with the support of her family.See Our Approach
"How can our words 'thank you' convey the depth of gratitude we feel for your help in our family's healing? She is once again the lively, healthy, and loving daughter/sister we remembered. Her CONFIDENCE and laughter are joys to behold" -- NH ParentLearn More
"Having traveled our journey at New Haven, our family, both as a unit and as individuals, seems to have an awareness about our values that others can't fathom. I think we believe in ourselves more now, and we will thus be able to face future life challenges with much more confidence than ever before." -- NH ParentLearn More
At New Haven, we base our treatment decisions on a simple question: What would I want for my daughter? We know that underneath her struggles – whether with an eating disorder, substance abuse, trauma, or another challenging emotional issue – your daughter is still there, waiting to be discovered, loved back to wholeness, and reunited with her family.
After twenty years of working together, our treatment team is one of the most experienced in the field of girls’ adolescent treatment. We know from experience that girls struggling with complex emotional and behavioral issues need access to a variety of proven therapies. Experience has also taught us that even the most clinically sophisticated approaches to treatment are only effective if those delivering them come from a place of connection, compassion, and hope.
Clinical excellence. The warmth and love of a home away from home. That’s what we’d want for our daughters. So that’s what we provide for yours.
And it works. Our outcome studies show that most of our graduates – even those who have not been successful in other placements – never need another treatment program after New Haven.
It is true to say that I've changed, but it goes so much deeper than that- I have remembered who I am – I have remembered my truest self, and I never would have thought it, but I LOVE WHO THAT IS. Alumna
With a few words, carefully chosen and carefully placed, you helped our marriage, and helped bring our family from despair to happiness. Parent
You saved my life. (I know what you are probably thinking, because I can picture you saying it…,”I didn’t save your life, you saved your life.”) That is true, but you know what? I wouldn’t have, not for all the money in the world, until you came along. Alumna
Thank God there is a place like New Haven and that there are people so dedicated to healing the broken hearted. You gave us comfort in a time of great need, and hope when there was very little. You told us you would take care of our loved one and you did. Parent
-What Makes New Haven Residential Treatment Center Different: Core meaning We all carry core beliefs that impact how we see and feel about ourselves and consequently how we behave and interact in our relationships. The analogy that I use to explain this concept to families is that of a tree. Imagine a big beautiful […]
A dual diagnosis treatment center is one that provides treatment for individuals who have coexisting difficulties with mental health and drugs and/or alcohol. The treatment of individuals who have both mental health difficulties and substance use difficulties is generally considered to be more complex than treating either one alone. It is a dilemma commonly […]
Photo by, Chiara Cremashi The first time we meet parents we often times hear the statement, “My child has put up walls. She won’t listen to me. She won’t listen to her therapists or her teachers, not anyone.” This question always follows, “If I enroll my daughter into New Haven, why will she listen […]
As a supporter of a family member suffering from depression, I know how difficult it can be. The worry, exhaustion, frustrations, concerns, and pain can become overwhelming. Supporting loved ones with depression can be confusing. Why are they so sad? Why don’t they enjoy things they used to? Why don’t they have energy or motivation? […]
