Our mission is to help individuals struggling with Drug and Alcohol Use Disorder to establish and maintain recovery. Our dedicated counselors and staff are committed to offering individualized and person-centered treatment. We believe that there are multiple pathways to recovery-based individual’s unique strengths and personal experiences.


NEW BEGINNINGS is an intensive nine to twelve-month program based on the individual.

Our APPROACH

We offer multiple, specialized groups and individual sessions to meet the needs of each person.

Our curriculum is based on the Department of Mental Health’s (DMH) Recovery Transformation model. 

The participants are assisted with creating their own wellness action recovery plans which helps to develop:

  • Self-awareness and a sense of hope
  • Personal responsibility and self-advocacy

HOW OUR PROGRAM WORKS

When an individual becomes addicted to drugs or alcohol, their life skills, maturity and ability to cope with stress and responsibility often come to a standstill. 

As a result, participants may struggle to maintain healthy relationships. Therefore, our groups offer peer support and help participants learn how to effectively manage their life on life’s terms.

LOGO: The symbol used in our logo, SESA WO SUBAN means “change or transform” your character or “life transformation”.

The word “adinkra” is of West African etymology, and it originally referred to visual symbols created by the Akan people of Ghana.
