Specialization

  • Individualized Treatment

    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
  • 12-Step

    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

    This program was exactly what my adult daughter needed at the "right" time. The program was very structured and focused. It truly helped put her on her track of sobriety. 2 !/2 years sober!!! Hallelujah.

      As I was looking for rehabiltiation centers and my daughter doesn't have insurance. I can't argue with A New Beginning. It is a mazing that they are able to do what they do!

        I cannot speak as to the effectiveness of this program because our daughter decided not to stay but be warned they mean what they say when they inform you there is NO refund. Our daughter stayed less than 24 hours and they kept the ENTIRE 1000$'( deposit as well as the first months fees) So, if there is any doubt whatsoever your loved one may not stay do NOT use these guys. They may have a great program but if your loved one won't stay & your out even more money (most have multiple stays in rehab) with nothing to show for it. I 100% agree the deposit should be non-refundable but to keep 700$'s for less than 24 hours if very harsh for families who are already hurting financially in an attempt to help their loved one. This just adds insult to injury. Shame on you A New Beginning. Help comes in many different forms but taking money for services not used is unfair & can lead to a bad reputation within the rehab world.
