Mental Health and Substance Abuse

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Rehab Services:

Vivitrol used for Addiction Recovery

Vivitrol is a monthly injection that, when combined with the counseling of a trained professional, can aid in the effectiveness and maintenance of an addiction treatment program. Vivitrol works as a dopamine blocker, fitting into the brain’s opioid receptors and preventing opioids from attaching to them. Unlike heroin and opioid painkillers, the active ingredient in Vivitrol, Naltrexone, does not activate these receptors in the same way and dopamine is not released. These “blockers” essentially prevent addicts from feeling the high that is normally associated with opioids, and therefore help to reduce cravings and deter relapse. Vivitrol is also effective in the treatment of alcoholism.

What does A New Start, Inc. offer?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

A New Start, Inc. is an intensive outpatient program (IOP) offering individualized patient care for substance abuse and addiction. Therapists have extensive experience working with substance abuse, addiction, eating disorders, sexual trauma, depressions, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Therapies offered at the facility intensive outpatient program include cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, family systems therapy and the 12 step recovery model. The team also provides specialized treatment for dual-diagnosis, including anxiety, depressions, and low self-worth. The therapists at A New Start specialize in trauma based treatment methods.

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Intervention Services

Those helping a loved one struggling with any type of addiction know that it can be a challenging experience. An intervention can act as motivation for someone seeking help from alcohol or drug abuse, compulsive eating, or other addictive behaviors. Often, those struggling with addiction are in denial about their situation and are unwilling to seek treatment. The goal of an intervention is to present the individual suffering from addiction with a structured opportunity to accept help and to make changes before things get worse.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

At A New Start, Inc. the facility have successfully treated many patients who suffer from a co-occurring disorder with their intensive outpatient dual diagnosis treatment. With their individualized treatment plans, the facility knows from day one, which patients fall into the dual diagnosis category. A New Start, Inc. has a variety of dual diagnosis treatments that are taught by their highly skilled therapists and clinicians. Some of their dual diagnosis therapies include: 12-Step, Trauma, Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral, as well as Individual and Group Therapy Sessions.

Treatment Types:


The 12-step program is a set of guiding principles outlining a course of action for addictions, including alcohol, drugs, and compulsion. A 12-step professional treatment program will work through personal changes during recovery, including cognitive, emotional, behavioral, spiritual, and social changes.

Family Program

The Family Systems Therapy is one of the therapy methods used by therapists at A New Start Inc. Family Systems Therapy uses a systems view on the family is a part of an emotional unit. Each part of the system is in relation to the whole. It suggests that any individual’s behavior inside that system directly affects the functioning of the whole unit.

Aftercare Support

Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn’t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community  programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is a therapy method used by the therapists at A New Start. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a method that was developed to prevent relapse when treating addiction to alcohol and was later adapted for cocaine-addicted individuals. CBT is based on the theory that in the development of maladaptive behavioral patterns, like substance abuse, learning processes play a critical role.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment designed to help people understand and ultimately affect the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. DBT is often used for individuals who struggle with self-harm behaviors, such as self-mutilation (cutting) and suicidal thoughts, urges, or attempts. It has been proven clinically effective for those who struggle with out-of-control emotions and mental health illnesses like Borderline Personality Disorder.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Trauma Therapy

Using alcohol or drugs will not take the pain away from any trauma that the person has experienced. After time the substances will do nothing but increase the pain and should not be used as a coping mechanism. At A New Start, Inc. patients will learn the right ways to cope with the trauma and pain. As a part of trauma therapy, patients will work one on one with therapists and in group settings while learning a variety of ways to manage their trauma therapies.

Group Therapy

Group therapy typically involves one or more psychologists leading a small group of 10 to 15 individuals. Groups will usually meet for a few hours each week. At A New Start, Inc. clients will attend both individual and group therapy meetings at part of a multi-dynamic approach to addiction treatment. Group therapy sessions are run by therapists with specialized training and experience.

Eating Disorder Treatment

Eating disorders include anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and dysfunctional eating patterns. Many psychologists and other mental health professionals consider eating disorders to be food addictions, meaning food is being used in an addictive way (similar to drug or alcohol addiction). Certain substance abuse treatment programs will have treatment for eating disorders as one of the services offered. An eating disorder may also present as a co-occuring disorder or dual diagnosis alongside drug and alcohol addiction.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.
