Treatment and Staff
New Beginnings is located on the same property as The Rehab Center. Residents undergo treatment for a minimum of 120 days. After a client’s initial assessment, he or she is assigned to an LADC who creates an individualized treatment plan.
Residents wake up at 7am for breakfast then immediately go into group therapy. Residents typically meet with their counselors for individual therapy once a week or more ,depending on their treatment plan. New Beginnings is a 12-step oriented program and all group meetings are co-ed. Psychiatrists are available to residents with co-occurring disorders in the main rehab center building. If meds are required for treatment, medication management is available.
In addition to the designated LADC, additional staff members keep their office doors open all day to residents. There are residential field specialists on-site at all times.
There is also an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) that provides treatment and therapy for people 18 and over that are abusing drugs or alcohol and suffering from or dual diagnosis issues but wish to live at home during treatment.

Medication-assisted treatment is available but supplemented by counseling to people with opiate addiction. Detox referrals and financial assistance are also available. After their IOP is completed, clients are encouraged to attend aftercare programs through The Center Adult Mental Health and Crisis Services of Catalyst Life Services.
