Who We Are
New Horizons is Open!
Your health and the health of our team at New Horizons is of utmost importance. I want to let you know, we are taking extra precautions to ensure common areas are being sanitized according to the recommendations of the CDC – Center for Disease Control. In addition, we are asking all clients about any symptoms of illness they may be having and referring them to medical services if needed. We are practicing social distancing in the clinics and our buildings and waiting areas are kept locked. Please call when you arrive for your appointment and you will be screened and granted access.
If you or your loved one has an appointment at a New Horizon’s Clinic and is not feeling well, please give us a call and we will work with you to reschedule it. We are also offering our services by telephone, and video conferencing whenever possible.
COVID-19 has had an impact on everyone, and New Horizons is in close contact with governmental agencies and is taking the proper precautions as this situation evolves. All our locations and programs remain open and available for services.
Thank you for entrusting your care to New Horizons Mental Health Services. As always, we are committed to offering you a safe and healthy environment.

Welcome, I appreciate your visit to our website. It has been designed to help you learn more about the variety of services we offer and how you can get in contact with someone who can help you, or your friend or family member, in coping with the day to day life stressors we all have to face.
For over 50 years New Horizons has been providing services to the residents of Fairfield County. From its humble beginnings with a few staff focusing on children's services, it has grown to three locations and developed multiple programs aimed at the needs of the community including all age groups. Utilizing a personalized approach to treatment planning, New Horizons staff work with clients to design a program of services tailored to their own circumstances. We offer individual and group psychotherapy, psychiatric consultation and medication management, substance abuse evaluation and treatment, home based family and community support services, as well as 24-7 mobile crisis assessment.
Further, within each of these areas of service there are even more highly specialized programs , often in response to a community need and in partnership with our stakeholders. For example, thanks to assistance from the ADAMH board, United Way of Fairfield County, Ryan Reeb Foundation, and the support of all the school systems we provide suicide screening, along with prevention and follow-up services, to all middle and high school students in Fairfield County.
Please browse our pages and discover all the services we offer.

Finally, on behalf of our Board of Directors, Management Team, and Clinicians and Administrative staff I want to thank-you for your interest in our agency and giving us the opportunity to be of service.
