About New Horizon Treatment Services

The mission of New Horizon is to save lives from the devastation of heroin addiction through comprehensive, state-of-the-art, multi-modal medical, psychological, and social services to the heroin users, abusers and addicted population of the NHTS community.

New Horizon Treatment Services, Inc. continues to serve the inner city population of Trenton by offering Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) and detox. We provide and array of services including primary medical care, HIV testing of clients, and individual/group counseling.

NHTS has developed two private and yet affordable opiate substitution programs for our opiate addicted population. These programs provide a more intensive treatment track for those patients who continue to struggle with opiate dependency.

We have seen the drug free program grow by developing contracts with the criminal justice system, including Federal Probation, Federal Pre-trial, and County Drug Court as well as a resulting expansion of our outpatient drug free clientelle.

Clinical Services Department

We provide prevention and treatment for the adolescent at risk population. There are inpatient services for clients in crisis, special programs for populations and conditions associated with addiction.

New Horizon forms many kinds of partnerships with the federal, state, local, and non-governmental agencies as well as the business community and our counterparts in the addiction treatment field.

Client care is provided in a timely manner to meet the identified needs of the patient. All patients are entitled to and receive a comparable level of quality care, regardless of their clinical condition, age, sex, race, ethnicity, religion, or socio-economic status. New Horizon Treatment Systems ensures this level of service through its development of policies and procedures, program plans, quality monitoring and evaluations.

A comprehensive Patient and Family Education Program is in place at New Horizon. This program was collaboratively designed to address identified patient needs and includes input from patients and their families as well as community members. Educational services provided to patients and their families are recorded in the patient record. The community liason assesses community educational needs at least annually and assumes full responsibility for meeting those needs.

The program is open seven days a week. Security is provided throughout the day, especially during peak hours.
