The Newhaven Story

In 1967, the establishment of South Arkansas Regional Health Center was the result of the commitment of our state to develop an outpatient system of care for those dealing with mental illness throughout Arkansas.  It was founded and continues to operate as a private, not-for-profit community mental health center.  

In 2021, the Center changed its name to Newhaven Counseling & Health Services to better reflect its purpose and commitment to those we serve.  It provides a wealth of treatment options and invests in the development of the expansion of evidence-based care practices and programs. This commitment is to ensure the quality of behavioral health services to best meet the needs of individuals, families, and communities.  The strive for excellence resulted in the successful effort to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities and has continued to be in place.  In July 2021, notification from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration was received that a Certified Community Behavioral Health Center Expansion grant had been awarded to the center.  Over the next two years, we will be in the process of implementing and expanding to provide integrated health and expand the array of intensive behavioral health programs.

The clinical staff members of Newhaven are dedicated professionals, highly trained with experience in treating the variety of life problems, psychiatric conditions, substance use, and assisting others in making changes, developing skills and methods for dealing with issues and concerns.  Services are client-directed regarding setting goals, involvement in the process of treatment planning and full participation in their care.  All services are provided in a confidential manner.
