About New Life
Solid Reputation, Lasting Results
Founded in 1984 by Thomas Porter, New Life’s commitment to patient care has never wavered. From the start, Tom’s compassion for people with addictions was quickly recognized by the treatment team at Hidden Brook in Bel Air, Maryland, where he began his professional career. With that, Tom was encouraged to launch an outpatient aftercare program in Dundalk, and soon after, he and his team also opened programs in Anne Arundel, Wicomico and Carroll counties. The philosophies put into practice—first by Tom, then by his daughter Beverly Ervin, both surrounded by a dedicated team—have stood the test of time.
Today, New Life presents a safe and confidential atmosphere out of our state-of-the-art facility in Pasadena, Maryland. New Life is proudly part of the Discovery Behavioral Health family of brands. With this support, New Life can continue to make strides in growing its treatment offerings for patients and partnerships with local healthcare workers.
