What is the best way to sooth the soul during tough times?  A large dose of delicious comfort food.  Even better the desert part of a comfort food feast.  This bread pudding is great for any occasion!  This dessert is a favorite of both our staff and clients at our residential drug rehab facility.  Sometimes if they are lucky, when our extended care drug rehab program clients come over for some mentoring, they get a little taste of the pudding as well.  It is  always requested on a weekly menu. It is one of the best Bread Pudding’s served in any drug treatment center, and in Utah!

Group Counseling as a Means of Substance Abuse Counseling

Group counseling or group therapy is one of the most common treatment models for substance abuse, but little is known about its effectiveness.  Its focus is usually on one type of problem such as addiction.

Some of the good things that group therapy has done for individuals in a drug treatment center are:

Provides hope

Shows that others have experienced the same things

Gives advice

Shows that one can receive good things by giving

Provides a group format to discuss family issues

Learning behaviors through watching others

Two important professional issues to consider are to make sure that the clients are informed about the group process and therefore have given an informed consent and to emphasize the importance of confidentiality.

New Roads Hot Wings

Serves 6-8

Some of the Best tasting Hot Wings prepared in any Utah drug rehab facility, or state eatery.  The Taste is preferred by our drug rehab clients.  We have them regularly on our weekly menu.  The flavor profile is preferred over other Hot Wing Restaurants.  They are prepared in the oven and not fried in oil, but baked to a golden crispy crunch.  We add just the correct amount of seasonings, but start with a fresh chicken wing.  We marinate the wings just right and add our special blend of wings.  Again, some of the Best Hot Wings served in any Utah drug treatment center.

New Roads Extended Care Drug Rehab Program Snowboarding Trip

What a beautiful day on the mountain!  New Roads extended care drug treatment clients were able to take full advantage of the snowboard park at Brighton Ski Resort up Utah’s Big Cottonwood Canyon.

The day started out with the community’s morning reflections group.  Everybody was in a great mood anxiously awaiting the beautiful scenery that can only come from finding peace during drug rehab in Utah.  After stopping for one of Utah’s famous breakfast burritos it was up to the mountain resort for half pipes, rails, and a ton of snow!

The community was accompanied by Life Coach and recreational drug treatment counselors Peter Busch and Jessie Dennerline.  Clients formed groups based on experience level so that experience fostered the community to bond.  After a high energy morning full of a variety of runs a group lunch at the mountain lodge was great for recharging everybody.  A few more runs in the afternoon and no injuries(yay) and everyone was ready for a nice cup of hot chocolate and the trip home.

The next trip can’t come soon enough!
