New Adventure Treatment Center (NATC) is following the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Arkansas Department of Health guidelines…
We are checking both the CDC and Arkansas Department of Health websites daily for any additional instructions or updates. We are making every effort to help prevent exposure and/or infection, and we have contingency plans in place should there be someone who contracts the illness on campus.
According to the Arkansas Department of Health, risk to persons in Arkansas is still considered low, and no outbreaks have been reported in our immediate area. Nevertheless, we want to assure you that NATC is taking the situation seriously and is putting measures in place to further reduce the risk of contagion.
In our efforts to be vigilant, we have implemented additional precautions to further protect our students and staff. For the foreseeable future, we are cancelling all unnecessary off-campus trips. We have not cancelled trips which are considered necessary components of our program such as our outdoor adventure trips since they are to unpopulated areas. This additional measure along with the fact that our program is in a remote/isolated location should help to further protect our students and staff from potential exposure.
We are working with the students to teach/encourage good self-care and everyday preventative strategies for avoiding sickness such as good hand washing, avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands, etc. We have also reviewed prevention guidelines and sanitation procedures with our staff to help prevent the risk of infection on campus.
We at New Adventure Treatment Center are continuously monitoring the coronavirus situation and will act in accordance with CDC and Arkansas Department of Health guidelines to help reduce the risk of exposure for our students and staff. We are committed to the health of the boys in our care and the staff who serve them.

"NO WARRANTY" LEGAL NOTICE: While independent outcomes studies have shown very high recovery rates for indiviuals in our programs, we cannot guarantee recovery for any particular individual. Recovery and future abstinence from addicting substances and the effects that such substances may have on the individual or their life, actions, or their future are entirely dependent on the individual and how well they apply the principles we have taught them. We are an educational institution, and how the individual in our program learns from what they are taught and modeled here, is totally up to them. Individuals who stay the full term (until graduation) have much better long-term recovery from addicitons than those who do not.
