Addiction is a multi-faceted issue that requires a multi-faceted recovery. New Start Detox offers this in the form of individual case managers and several types of therapy. We assign an individual case manager to assess each client’s needs, form an action plan, and monitor progress through the phases. Our low manager to client ratio ensures that each client gets the high level of attention that true recovery requires.
Our staff psychologists have been around the block when it comes to addiction treatment. Each understands that substance abuse is rooted in both physiological AND emotional dependency, and that those emotional needs can only be addressed on a one-on-one basis.
Group therapy helps clients to learn new ways to open up with their feelings and be honest with others. This also provides the opportunity to offer guidance and encouragement to peers in need.
Including loved ones affected by substance use is crucial. Communication skills (or lack thereof) often contributes to a stressful environment. Family therapy enhances everyone’s ability to set clear boundaries. It also helps loved ones learn how to be supportive of those struggling with substance use.
Wellness Recovery Action Plan (W.R.A.P.)
W.R.A.P. is a self-designed plan to help individuals develop a daily maintenance plan that can be utilized to combat life stressors and substance cravings. We assist individuals with identifying triggers for their substance cravings, feelings of depression, or feelings of anxiety. W.R.A.P. is instrumental in empowering individuals to identify safe and healthy supporters whom can be called upon when they notice life is becoming overwhelming or once they enter a crisis. The approach is more than a theoretical orientation but instead a lifestyle change.
Key Concepts Taught
Daily Maintenance Planning
This part of W.R.A.P. is about learning what wellness actually looks like. Clients develop a daily maintenance plan and wellness toolbox with the help of our trained staff. They also learn to identify healthy supporters.
Many relapses are due to crisis situations. A client feels stressed out, trapped, or dangerously insecure in some way. Pre- and post-crisis planning is essential. Clients learn warning signs and management skills.
Recovery can become a revolving door when relapse enters the equation. To preempt this, we give clients a set of tools to prevent them from going back to their drug of choice.
Close loved ones are highly influential in shaping their recovering addict’s atmosphere of recovery. We like to provide families with information that can help them provide support going forward.
There is only a certain degree of help that others’ willing support can provide. A big part of recovery is learning how to identify toxic relationships, and how to dissociate with people who do not support the client’s recovery.
Unfortunately, deception usually becomes second nature to addicts (and not always by choice). Urine testing is a way that others can provide accountability to the client after discharge from our program.
Twelve Step Modality
You’ve probably heard of AA and the 12-step program’s high success rates. While participation in the program itself is not required, we do use its structure to a degree to help clients redirect destructive behavior patterns.
