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

  • 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.

  • 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.

Review by Contributors


NewDay Counseling, located in the Metropolitan district of Savannah, Ga., treats adults struggling with substance abuse. Treatment is available in the form of intensive outpatient (IOP) programming with less intensive aftercare options. Detox is not available on-site.


According to the center’s website, all clients undergo a preliminary consultation, which is offered on a free and confidential basis. Once enrolled, clients participate in sessions that combine traditional group therapy and addiction education. Treatment is conducted over a period of eight weeks. During this time, clients attend three-hour sessions four evenings a week.

NewDay treats addiction as a chronic and progressive condition, using community resources and the local AA and NA communities to help clients maintain long-term sobriety. Referrals to these groups as well as medical follow up and continuing care meetings make up a graduate's aftercare plan.


NewDay offers a 1:4 staff-to-client ratio. The center’s website notes the staff consists of licensed professional counselors and supervised counselors who are preparing for licensure.

I was very happy with the professionalism of this service, they were courteous of my needs and my only recommendation is to maybe have activities away from “recovery “ such as maybe frisbee or other team building activities. All in all a great program and I’d very highly recommend to anther addicts.


Helped me so much... made me feel more confident in myself and my recovery! the people are so sweet and loving.. they actually care about you and your feelings... AWESOME and so happy I got to go through my journey with them
