Description

Description

Based in Pasadena, Md., New Life ACS offers individual and group care for addiction recovery. New Life accepts insurance, including Medicaid. New Life treatment center screens prospective clients over the phone. If New Life’s services are not the best fit for a person’s problems, the treatment center will recommend another course. After the phone call comes an in-person assessment, typically lasting an hour and a half. Bio-psycho-social tools like American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria and DSM-V diagnostic impressions are used to determine placement into one of New Life’s treatment programs. Psychiatric and medical evaluations are sometimes required.

After the assessment, a counselor recommends the appropriate treatment, either intensive outpatient group therapy or traditional outpatient group therapy. If a dual-diagnosed client’s primary diagnosis is a substance-related disorder, they will be placed in treatment. Outpatient detox, alcohol abuse and alcohol addiction treatment, drug abuse and drug addiction treatment as well as mental health services are available for placement. Outpatient detox may be required for alcohol, opioid and sedative-abusing patients, managed by experienced addiction medicine specialist physicians. Once in outpatient detoxification, patients are eligible to enter intensive outpatient treatment.

New Life treatment is based on the intake assessment. A counselor will develop a treatment plan and refer clients to either the Alcohol & Drug Treatment Program or the Intensive Outpatient Program. Intensive outpatient program (IOP) phase 1 is for patients with addiction. It meets three hours a day, three days a week and includes alcohol abuse education and a 12-step approach to recovery. Phase 2 is less intensive, meeting twice a week and is part of the Continuum of Care (COC) program. COC allows clients to address their addiction in a safe, confidential atmosphere.

New Life mental health professionals, many of whom are in addiction recovery, approach addiction as more than a singular problem. Client lives are seen holistically. The source of trauma or misunderstanding leading to alcohol or drug abuse is considered. New Life staffers who have experienced substance struggles are aware of how addiction can worsen due to other problems, or vice-versa, and how a person can get to the bottom of the complexity of their use.
