A community-based residential treatment program
The New Horizons Treatment Center is a supportive community residential services program that provides individualized treatment and support services for individuals who have severe mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorder. The center is a Fairfax County facility, located in Alexandria, Virginia, and operated by the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB).
New Horizons provides intensive residential treatment that includes education about mental health and substance abuse, development of coping skills, vocational/educational skill development, illness self-management, medication management and the development of life skills to enhance the individual’s ability to live independently in the community.
The goal of the program is to support individuals in their recovery process so that they can be successful in a community living setting of their choice. The program provides a continuum of services in several phases; individuals may enter or leave services at any point along the continuum.
