New Beginnings Ministries Restoration Center is located in Brewton, a small town in south Alabama, just north of the Florida panhandle. Affiliated with the nearby New Beginnings Worship Center, it offers a faith-based 90-day residential program for men and women. The program has been in operation for over eight years, and after graduation many residents continue their recovery in New Beginnings’ sober living homes.
Accommodations and Food
New Beginnings occupies a wooded 25-acre campus. Men and women reside in separate houses on the property. The men’s home has 28 beds in large dormitory rooms, and the women’s residence has 18 beds, with two bunk beds in each bedroom.
Electronics and TV are not permitted while in treatment, but clients go fishing, play volleyball and visit a nearby park for recreation. They also have daily chores and rotate through food preparation assignments, ensuring they gain some experience in meal planning and cooking.
Treatment and Staff
Clients have group therapy and psychoeducation classes up to five times each day. Treatment is based on the Minnesota Model and implements CBT and Psychodynamic Processing. Clients also have individual therapy once every two weeks. In addition to therapy, clients have Bible Study classes throughout the week and attend church on Sundays and Wednesdays.
New Beginnings uses the 12-step framework and requires clients to attend 12-step meetings several times a week. Many are held on-site but clients are transported to off-site meetings at the Worship Center as well.
Clients in need of on-going dual diagnosis support are not an ideal fit for New Beginnings, but if a mental health diagnosis presents while in treatment, clients are taken to a nearby mental health clinic for counseling and medication management.
The treatment team includes LADCs and support workers who are also in recovery.
New Beginnings has a relationship with a local construction company that provides job training for its clients. Clients can schedule family therapy with their primary counselor if their loved ones wish to participate. For aftercare, clients can apply to New Beginnings sober living homes.
New Beginnings Ministries Restoration Center offers its residents faith-based and evidence-based substance abuse treatment in a scenic, rural setting. Over their three months of treatment, clients have the opportunity to acquire job skills, develop healthy coping strategies and learn a spiritual approach to recovery.
