It is our philosophy that recovery must be the total focus of your three months at New Life Residential Center. We expect that you will spend as much energy, if not more, into obtaining your recovery as you did in obtaining your drug of choice. In return, we pledge to support you on this exciting journey which you have begun.
We believe that recovery goes beyond abstinence from drugs and alcohol. It involves a conscious and intentional split from the people, places, things and behaviors that were present in your life during active use.
We also believe that few can accomplish this change alone; therefore the environment that has been created at New Life Residential Center provides support and insight from a group of people who have also dedicated their lives to the recovery process.
