NewDay Counseling Philosophy

At NewDay, addiction is understood as a complex condition with multiple causes, and acknowledges that the lines separating use, abuse and addiction are not always clear. Treating addiction as a chronic disease that will require ongoing management, clients are supported with individual and group therapy and are encouraged to attend 12-step meetings. There is a strong emphasis on aftercare planning and relapse prevention.

Areas of Specialization

  • Detox
    Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

  • Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
