New Horizons of the Treasure Coast was created in 1958 by community members who passionately believed that quality mental health services should be available to all in need on the Treasure Coast.
From its first location in Ft. Pierce, New Horizons has expanded to serve residents in Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee and St. Lucie Counties, with its main campus on Midway Road in Fort Pierce.
More than 50 years after its founding, New Horizons continues to work hard to fulfill the vision of its founders. It offers inpatient and outpatient mental health care for adults and children, crisis units for adults and children, learning resource centers for independent living skills, a transitional group home, a primary care clinic, substance abuse and detox services, case management, family support and counseling, and programs in schools and with law enforcement agencies.
New Horizons provides a safety net for those in crisis, outreach programs to promote resilience and recovery, and community education to help our community achieve health in both mind and body.
