Understanding mental health is a crucial component to overcoming addiction. Often, the two are intimately linked. Addicts must address underlying psychological issues that are driving their behaviors before those behaviors can change. Unfortunately, the stigma around mental health acts as a barrier to treatment in many cases.
New Start Recovery’s program is built around breaking those barriers through individual, group, and family therapy. Our case managers are trained mental health professionals who assess each addict’s needs on an individualized basis. That way, we can provide the highest level of care possible by addressing unique circumstances, including coexisting mood disorders, behavioral problems, and/or trauma history. A tailored mental health treatment program such as this at New Start Recovery is much more likely to keep addicts on the road to recovery.

New Start assesses all clients for any mental health problems that may factor into their treatment plan and provides evidence-based therapy to help start their recovery. Through various therapies, our team of addiction treatment professionals can help individuals identify and heal from the mental health issues contributing to or arising from their dependency upon drugs or alcohol.
