I agree this facility was not for me. Even the employees seemed to be not happy with their jobs. How can a person get healthy when your in a negative environment


This place is a joke you go there to get clean and they have you clean the facility there classes are nothing to do with drugs or alcohol there beds, blankets, pillows are like your in jail I spent 30...


Poor staffing


It was well rounded in its focus to treat holistically. Keep open mind and stay focused on treatment without letting problems outside interfer.


I think more one on one therapy would help as well as alternative therapies.... Massage, acupuncture, leisure activities.. Etc.... The access to psychiatric help and the one on one therapy was excelle...


Strengths: Knowledgable staff. Made the stay very comfortable. Weaknesses: food..I stayed for 10 weeks. The staff was nice. It was a relaxing place to clear my head and work on my struggle.


If you are serious about getting help, then New Leaf is a great choice. No one will come out perfect, but it's a great step towards changing your life.


changed her whole outlook on life. only 30 days long she needed more time she keeps relapsing. ive known several people that have gone here and every single one is still using after release.


They speak of change as a process that takes time and effort but they expect you to change over night. The rest is amazing and many counselors are amazing as well.


It was an overall good facility that was quite affordable.

Areas of Focus

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.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
