New Life ACS - Treatment Programs & Modalities

We Treat the Whole Person

From the moment patients walk through our doors, they are surrounded by a caring community of licensed professionals who are actively involved in all aspects of patient care, including a program director, clinical director, medical director, intensive outpatient counselors, specialized groups counselors, registered nurse and intake coordinator.

We treat the entire person—beginning with biopsychosocial, psychiatric and medical assessments—to determine an appropriate treatment plan and services that will place patients on a path to a recovered life.

We Offer a Personalized Path to Recovery

New Life understands that everyone is different and we can lead patients on a path that’s right for them. One way is through total abstinence from alcohol and drug abuse, which motivates patients through education, self-awareness and participation in self-help groups to develop recovery strategies that promote an alcohol/drug-free life. Understanding that total abstinence isn’t for everyone, we offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT) with Suboxone or Vivitrol as an alternative treatment option.

We recognize the unique and important needs of our patients and offer women-only treatment groups as well as a Family & Friends Support Group. We firmly and passionately believe that educating and supporting loved ones is essential to sustained recovery.

Let’s Stop the Cycle of Addiction Together

A new, better life is truly possible, whether a patient has been through drug or alcohol rehab before or this is their first time. Our team is committed to helping patients stop the cycle of using, learning about their disorder and the underlying issues, then practicing new ways to manage stress and other triggers. Our support does not end with intensive outpatient treatment, either. Through our continuing care program, we provide ongoing structure and support as patients embark on their new life of sobriety.
