Specialization

  • Creative Arts Therapy

    Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.
  • 12-Step

    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

    If you are looking at this review I know you our your loved one is in crisis. My family has been dealing with an addiction for the last 5 years of our loved one. Trying to navigate the rehabilitation facilities and detox centers blindly is a nightmare. My person had been to 4 rehab centers and we finally see light at the end of the tunnel. One of their directors took us out of crisis mode and actually directed my family as to what we needed to do. We are hopeful for a full recovery for the first time in a very long time. We know that we are still at the beginning the process once again but this man was able to guide us, give great advice, was very aware of our financial situation and did not want us to spend money that was not necessary. If you do nothing else, contact this facility and they will guide you on your journey. God bless all of you and this man.

    This facility did an outstanding job with my fiance. She suffered from previous trauma and alcoholism. The facility took her success personal. She learned a lot of tools to help her to work through her sufferings and uses them daily. When she came home she was not even a shy person anymore. Her confidence was restored, her patience with others increased ten fold, and she has a new understanding of her disease. You get out of the program what you put in it seems and her success is attributed to REALLY working hard at what she wanted.

    My 24 year old son was spiraling downhill and we needed help. New Method Wellness was exactly what he needed. From our initial contact with NMW, we could tell they knew what they were doing. They understood his dual diagnosis as well as what we as a family were going through. His two therapist were amazing and helped him process a lot of difficult things. Even after he left outpatient, NMW was still there to make sure he was on the right track. New Method Wellness clearly cares about their clients. I would recommend them 100%.

    The owners truly care about the clients. When I arrived at New Method, the staff and clients embraced me and made me feel more welcome than I ever have felt before at other treatment centers. Effective treatment, most of the staff are in recovery themselves and this makes it easier to build trust. I miss New Method so much that I’m finishing a degree so that I can go back and work for them. I recommend New Method over Hazelden any day.

      Do not go here if you have any diagnosis of bipolar. Their doctor put me on lithium. I personally was never on this medicine and once I was on this drug could not communicate to my counselor or my loved ones that I couldn't speak or communicate that I couldn't function.
