Our Levels of Care for Substance Abuse Treatment
Primary care at New Found Life is a 28-day program designed to introduce men and women to the 12-step program of alcoholics anonymous in a safe environment. This intense program stabilizes the mental, emotional and physical status of individuals through psychiatric care, group and individual counseling, physical wellness exams, and individual attention. In doing so, they are able to immerse themselves in a drug and alcohol education program with a clear mind ready to understand the importance of what it takes to maintain a sober lifestyle.
Individuals who complete a Primary Care program may enter into our Extended Care phase of treatment. This phase is open-ended and consists of 28 day segments. Usually Extended Care averages eight to twelve weeks. While residents still follow the daily routine of counseling, education classes and 12-step meetings, they take on more responsibility and gain privileges that they integrate into their daily lives.
Residential Continuing Care
Our Residential Continuing Care (RCC) facilities provide a level of care for residents of New Found Life who need a more extended, but less intensive level of active treatment. This program is intended to fill a gap between intensive residential treatment and living in a sober living environment or returning home. The goal for our residents at RCC is to continue to utilize the tools and skills learned at NFL in order to transition into a healthy, sober lifestyle.
Services are provided in a supervised homelike atmosphere promoting stabilization and reintegration into the community while also continuing New Found Life’s strong focus on a twelve step program. Residents are invited to live in our continuing care apartments, which are located close to the main center. Residents can return to work or attend school. They may come back to the center to participate in groups, visit with their counselor, dine with the residents, be of service to newcomers, and join in any activities.
