New Haven Residential Treatment Center has announced the opening of its new residential home and new school for teen girls on its Saratoga Springs Campus, located 30 minutes south of Salt Lake City. Current students named the new residential home Florence Nightingale to honor the pioneering woman who made significant contributions to modern nursing and social reform.

New Haven treats teen girls (ages 12-18) struggling with complex emotional and behavioral issues including, but not limited to depression, personality and eating disorders, substance abuse, learning disabilities and anxiety.

The program combines experiential and clinical therapies and will take on New Haven's therapeutic philosophy of being family-focused, values-based, and multi-systemic. Florence Nightingale will provide a spacious setting for 16 young women, who along with their parents, will engage in the healing process.

"We are excited to announce the opening of our new residential home and school building on our Saratoga Springs Campus," John Stewart, New Haven's Executive Director said. "Creating additional space for new students helps us further our commitment to helping young girls move toward a promising future."
