A Message from Our Director

New Frontier certainly has had its challenges in the past several years. A devastating fire necessitated the relocation to our current Fallon location at 1490 Grimes Street. Restoration of our detoxification and residential treatment facility was a huge milestone since New Frontier is one of the few 501©(3) non-profit organizations in rural Nevada providing treatment for co-occurring disorders, chemical addictions, including drug, alcohol and nicotine dependence in a residential and outpatient setting and non-chemical pathological or problem gambling addiction through residential and outpatient treatment services.

New Frontier’s growth has included adding offices in Lovelock, Winnemucca, Battle Mountain, Elko, West Wendover, Ely, Caliente/Pioche, Hawthorne and Tonopah. Our qualified clinicians offer outpatient treatment for alcohol, drug and gambling, and mental health counseling which includes marriage and family therapy, treatment for depression and anxiety as well as services for adolescents in person or via tele-medicine under a new service provided by New Frontier to all of our rural clients.

Clients come from all walks of life and find New Frontier from a variety of sources. Many clients are referred for services through the legal system, many are through churches, schools or our local community coalitions, some from families who want their loved one to get the help they need, some are self-referrals – people who are just tired of the sickness in their active addiction. In addition many employers make referrals for their employees to receive some level of service through Employee Assistance Programs.

By whatever referral that brings our clients to our door they are greeted by a compendium of programs and services including case management for housing/homelessness, employment/job training, education/GED, food/emergency food pantry, clothing, transportation, child reunification/visitation and child care, parenting, primary health and mental health services, and life skills training.

New Frontier is an accredited organization through the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) since 2006, is licensed by the Bureau of Healthcare Quality and Compliance, and fully certified by the Sub- stance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Agency (SAPTA) in its level of care provided.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, financial support is greatly needed especially in these uncertain and economically challenging times. We hope that all individuals and corporations will consider supporting our endeavors in 2013 and beyond.
