Reviews at a Glance
- 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.
- Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
- Medical Detoxification
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
A New Start has been the most incredible resource for me. They have become more like a family than a friend or counselor. They know me, my heart and soul; they are sensitive to my emotional states and they are tough, but have supported me on my journey.S.P.
I stayed at A New Start Sober Living for two months. When I arrived I was very emotionally and spiritually sick. My drug and alcohol dependence nearly took my life on several occasions. The structure of being surrounded by others in recovery, having chores, going to meetings and never knowing when I would get tested helped me to stay sober long enough to let the program work me. Today I am grateful to say I am clean and sober for just under a year now. My life today, inside and out, is 180 degrees away in the right direction.K.T.
I have always been hesitant to enter treatment, but my addiction progressed to the point where my options were to get sober or die addicted. I was really nervous going into treatment, but when I arrived at A New Start and met the staff, I knew I was in good hands. The process was difficult, but my treatment team gave me the tools necessary to stay sober one day at a time. I’m very grateful!A.L.
If you want a quality chance to change your life, then you have to get your life re-started with the best support team in the Los Angeles area, A New Start! The staff is unsurpassed, and qualified to assist you through your life-changing experience. I am truly grateful for A New Start, and all they offered to me while I was there!T.G.
