If you have a problem with substance abuse or addiction and you are tired of living this way, give us a call. We provide outpatient treatment for clients who need help with alcohol and drug problems - The Intensive Outpatient Program is 4 evenings a week, three hours each evening, from 5:30p to 8:30p, with at least one individual session a week. We also provide individual sessions, education, DUI/probation evaluations and mental health counseling. NewDay is client-focused - we treat each client as an individual, although we uphold time-tested principles of recovery. NewDay believes recovery is possible when there is a focus on change while also dealing with issues that might lead to relapse. NewDay manages Suboxone patients through our Medical Director's office. NewDay also provide education through a blog that's updated 5 days a week with fresh information regarding substance abuse and addiction. Our core philosophy is Recovery Management - we believe addiction is chronic, so recovery have to be managed long term, utilizing community resources, like Alcoholics Anonymous, church groups, family physician, Rational Recovery, etc.


NewDay is dedicated to caring and respectful treatment of addiction, realizing that all in recovery deserve a chance. We have 24hr on call service and respond to all problems in a timely fashion, making referrals to community resources if we can't take in the client to our program.


NewDay always acts in a timely manner when someone is seeking treatment for a substance abuse problem. NewDay also promptly responds to referral sources seeking resources for someone to find addiction treatment. We are client-focused, always acting in an ethical manner to do what's best for the clients, never sacrificing quality care to financial concerns. NewDay ensures that the client's rights are protected and that the client is receiving quality care. In treatment, clients respond to honesty and consistency. NewDay strives to treat all clients with the respect they deserve. Our counselors are required to take ethics courses and to abide by strict codes of conduct when dealing with clients and family members. Addiction is a sensitive subject, so confidentiality is critical to the therapeutic relationship. Our goal is to provide an authentic experience for our clients, a safe environment where they can open up and trust that the counselors will act always in an ethical and caring manner.
