New Journeys in Recovery


NJIRThe Basics

New Journeys in Recovery (NJIR) is a substance abuse treatment organization located in north-central Philadelphia. Its founder, William Campbell, began his work in the substance abuse treatment field by opening a methadone clinic. His work is greatly influenced by his Christian faith and NJIR follows the 12-step treatment model. New Journeys in Recovery has two facilities in north Philadelphia that offer both Intensive Outpatient (IOP) and outpatient treatment.

Treatment and Staff

The treatment process at NJIR begins at intake when counselors and psychologists conduct an assessment of the client’s substance abuse history, family dynamics and current living environment, known as the comprehensive biopsychological evaluation (CBE). Staff then develop an individualized treatment plan with the client to determine the level of care necessary. Clients with co-occurring disorders work with a counselor, a therapist and a medical doctor to assist with mental health medications if there is a need to do so. The initial intake assessment determines if a client needs IOP or outpatient services.

The NJIR outpatient program requires clients to attend individual and group therapy sessions twice a week. IOP requires a commitment of three days a week for three hour group sessions, in addition to a one hour individual therapy session once a week. The maximum level of hours required for outpatient is five per week. Clients choose how they fulfill their hour requirement, whether they attend two groups for a couple hours each or multiple groups for one hour five days of the week. New Journeys in Recovery also offers therapy to spouses and families of clients. Psychoeducational groups are available for clients to learn how to identify triggers and for honing life skills.

Therapists, a medical doctor, Master’s-level counselors and Certified Peer Specialists work on staff at NJIR.


New Journeys in Recovery offers a  certified peer specialist (CPS) program and a voluntary peer council. The CPS program consists of recovering individuals who address program issues and concerns and help facilitate group sessions on a regular basis. A peer counselor assists clients by driving them into town to run small errands and arranging for clients to participate in community integration activities. Staff also administer free HIV/AIDS testing to clients. New Journeys is affiliated with Trinity Recovery Network, its primary source for referrals. Trinity Recovery Network is associated with recovery houses, which include Spanish-speaking services.

In Summary

Clients at New Journeys in Recovery have flexibility in the ways they complete treatment. The initial intake process provides a solid foundation for the type of program a client desires to work. The added benefit of peer specialists who provide support gives clients a glimpse of what recovery could like like for them in the future.
