CLINICAL DIRECTOR

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.”

ABOUT NEW ENGLAND RECOVERY AND WELLNESS

Located in Concord, N.H., New England Recovery and Wellness (RAW) offers a full continuum of care for adults struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders. Services include residential treatment, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), an intensive outpatient program (IOP), as well as sober living. As of 2016, the center was one of only two substance abuse treatment facilities throughout the state accredited by The Joint Commission.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to its website, RAW highlights its commitment to “helping individuals learn how to live an alcohol-and-drug-free life while creating new possibilities for a positive future.” The center’s programs are rooted in evidence-based practices and the 12-step model of recovery.

The professional team collaborates with each patient to create a customized plan. Treatment encompasses individual and group counseling, life skills education, an introduction to 12-Step, and educational groups.

In addition to traditional approaches, the center incorporates holistic and experiential therapy to improve mindfulness, self-esteem, and lifestyle choices. It advocates a healthy lifestyle by incorporating nutritious food, daily fitness sessions, yoga, meditation, as well as Native American and Eastern spirituality approaches into treatment.

RAW’s family program helps bridge the gap between the client and their loved ones while in early recovery. According to its website, the family program is designed to build an understanding of addiction for loved ones while supplying families with the skills necessary to confront problems.

PHP typically lasts 28 to 40 days and focuses on helping clients achieve recovery in a holistic manner. IOP treatment offers educational classes and counseling sessions on a range of topics related to relapse prevention and improving life skills, supporting clients while they transition back into daily life.

    I contacted RAW because I lived nearby and knew I needed help This was in nFeb 2017. VERY FORTUNATELY for me, RAW diverted me to RCA in Westminster MA for a 5-day detox. What a shock it was to leave there and realize this was at best a PHP situation, with the housing 35 minutes away. "Oh, you have to make your own breakfast and dinner". The atmosphere at the house where wee were stored was worse that a frat house. I was stuffed in a room with 2 others, no privacy, just an industrial fluorescent fixture, so no chance to chill and read. The food. the materials were provided. I can think of Kraft Mac & Cheese, nothing resembling a salad, and cereal with whole milk (I can't do milk). Doors slamming as everyone else went outside to smoke. Rap music at full volume on the all the drives. Oh, and we had chores and a completely disgusting shared bath. After one night, I checked out ("against medical advice" of course, though I never met with a medical professional.) Went back to Westminster as soon as they had space and never regretted it.

    What an amazing job they did in putting RAW together! I came to NH when there was just a shell of a building and to see it finished was amazing. It is truly a 5 star facility from the inside out.

    I prayed to find a place as great as this. I had been to countless "Hole in the wall" facilities and the care just wasn't there. I came to this facility completely broken and they showed me love and hope that I've never experienced. From the therapy, Amenities, and awesome weekend activities this place has shown me how to live sober and happy finally. Thank you so so much!
