Areas of Specialization
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
Creative Arts Therapy
Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
What an absolutely beautiful facility with the most caring, loving, and knowledgeable staff. I would recommend anyone struggling with drugs or alcohol to reach out to this facility!
So thankful to have been apart of New England Recovery and Wellness. The staff is amazing and truly cares, they aren't just there for a paycheck and that was huge! It was an amazing 4 weeks, I've learned so much that I will forever take with me! They also show you how to have sober fun! & that was refreshing. I'm so thankful for everyone I met at there, clients & staff!
Amazing people doing amazing things! People helping people is nothing new but people helping people that society has deemed hopeless is and that is exactly what this amazing group is doing!
When you talk about true dedication and care, you are talking about RAW and the entire team. I am blessed and honored to have been here! I know that many lives will be saved because of this center.

Joshua New, LCSW, MSW
Joshua New is a licensed clinical social worker in the state of New Hampshire, as well as holding licenses in the state of Texas. He earned a master’s degree in clinical social work from the University of New England specializing in the treatment of addiction services. Joshua has experience developing and managing programs in the private as well as the community mental health areas of service. He has 18 years of experience working with addicts and alcoholics personally and over a decade professionally working with individuals with addiction as well as mental health issues. He is trained in EMDR as well to help more complex issues of trauma. After a history of chronic relapse to substances and multiple treatment episodes and “failed” attempts at long term recovery, he was fortunate to find a provider that believed in a long term care model and was able to develop sustainable tools of recovery and a foundation for continued spiritual growth which he passionately still pursues to his day. He is not only trained in the clinical aspects of treatment that he loves to educate and teach individuals and families about, but he is also passionate about his presentation to motivate individuals about optimizing their life in all areas and teaching people how to be empowered, shedding limiting labels and creating a life second to none. Josh’s holistic approach to treating the whole individual physical, spiritually, and emotionally appears to have the most rewarding effect for those he works with. He started his recovery working in the financial industry working as a licensed stock broker for some years before finding his passion professionally to work and serve people seeking a way out of suffering. In that process he met and married his beautiful wife of 15 years and has three amazing children whom he enjoys spending his free time with whether it be at family functions, playing basketball, swimming at the lake, or going on adventures to other states and cities. He believes no matter what as long as he is with his family and strengthening his bonds with them, life is good. A native of New England he is also an avid sports fan and loves all things Boston, but holds a huge passion for football and enjoying the Patriots during the season with his two boys and daughter. Over the last 18 years working on himself professionally and personally through his own pains and joys in recovery three principles appear to guide him daily in his recovery. Living life on life’s terms and strengthening his faith in his higher power, cultivating gratitude and personal empowerment. His belief has been that Happiness is not a destination, but a creation. One which we control and create daily based upon our own humility to remain teachable and disciplined enough to take corrective action. Years ago he remembers sitting in an indigent detox in Southern California and reading an anonymous quote stenciled on the far wall across from him, that for him began the process of his awakening. It read, “Grateful People Are Happy People and Those Who Aint, Aint.”
