When you graduate from our program, you’ll be ready to live a healthier, happier life without substance abuse.
Healing body, mind, and spirit means addressing addiction from every angle.
Every American Addiction Centers facility provides its own combination of proven therapies and services to meet your needs.
Group therapy is a big part of successful addiction treatment. Sharing your own experience and learning from others can make a big difference in your recovery journey. All American Addiction Centers facilities provide some combination of the following:
Psychoeducation classes typically go over topics such as medication education, relapse prevention, and drug refusal skills. Alternative therapies available may, depending on facility, include expressive therapies (such as art therapy or music therapy), equine therapy, recreational therapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, aromatherapy, and meditation.
One of the first things you’ll do as a part of your treatment at NEW BEGINNINGS is participate in a psychiatric evaluation. Mental illness and addiction often go hand in hand. We’ll talk to you about any mental illnesses you’re dealing with, and will either continue any current medications, make adjustments to what you’re taking, or prescribe something new.
We use cutting-edge pharmacogenetic testing to predict how your body will respond to certain meds based on your DNA. The idea is to eliminate frustrating guesswork and get the right meds right away, so you can feel better, faster.
Our psychiatric team can also prescribe medications to help ease or eliminate withdrawal symptoms during Medical Detox. Many of our treatment centers also offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to reduce cravings and/or block the effects of drugs and alcohol. MAT, in combination with psychotherapy, is proven to be very effective in helping people get sober and stay that way long-term. Therapy Modalities

Addiction touches all areas of your life, so does successful treatment.
At a NEW BEGINNINGS center, you or your loved one will have access to wellness education, services, and activities to enrich your recovery journey. For example, you might choose to learn more about healthy eating or decide to quit smoking; maybe you’ll get moving with yoga, basketball, Zumba, or physical conditioning. If you have special dietary needs or simply want to eat healthier, most facilities offer consultations with registered dietitians. And if you’re dealing with medical issues or chronic disease, we can help you learn to manage your health, too.
Wellness means improving your quality of life from the inside out. Most NEW BEGINNINGS centers host faith-based services or religious/spirituality groups, and we’ll do everything we can to be sensitive to your religious needs. And if your addiction has left its mark on your career, many of our treatment centers offer services like resume building, job preparedness workshops, and help with job hunting as you get back on your feet.
