About The New Foundation
Our mission to provide quality behavioral health and education programs to youth and families is guided by seven guiding principles. They provide the framework for all of our interventions with clients, families and support networks to ensure all needs are identified, validated and incorporated into the therapeutic process.
In 2018, The New Foundation joined A New Leaf as a key community program, serving residents of Scottsdale, Arizona. Brad Snyder, Board Chair of A New Leaf, said, “The New Foundation shares a unique footprint with A New Leaf. It’s residential program for youth was an integral part of A New Leaf’s original programming.”
Terry Abrahams, Board Chair of The New Foundation, is delighted at the partnership: “The New Foundation will be a strong addition to the continuum of care A New Leaf offers to youth and their families in Central Arizona. We are looking forward to a bright future of supporting Arizona families.”
Our Guiding Principles
- As a treatment team, we will respect everyone’s values and support the child and family without judgment.
- We will make every effort to engage the child, family, and support network.
- We recognize that families define their own culture and every family has a different set of values.
- All families have strengths which get them through the rough times. We will help the child and family identify these strengths and build upon them.
- Every child has different needs. We will help the child and family identify and evaluate their needs.
- All behavior has a purpose. We will help the child and family understand the purpose behind the behavior and explore healthy and effective alternatives to deal with needs.
- We will be creative with the interventions utilized, recognizing that one intervention does not meet everyone’s needs
Our mission is to help children and families heal through recovery and growth by identifying individual strengths and help them build new foundations.
Our therapeutic programs and services are designed to assist youth, aged 11 to 17, in overcoming significant behavioral mental health issues affecting their daily lives. This may include substance abuse and addiction, depression, oppositional and defiant behavior, learning disabilities and other behavioral health issues. Our strong family component supports the treatment and healing process for both the child and their family.
In 1994, The New Foundation, a nonprofit organization, became accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
