Mental Health

Understanding the impact of mental health is a crucial component to overcoming addiction. Often, the two are intimately linked.

Addicts must address underlying psychological issues that are driving their behaviors before those behaviors can change. Unfortunately, the stigma around mental health acts as a barrier to treatment in many cases. New Start's program is built around breaking those barriers through individual, group, and family therapy.

Addicts and alcoholics are not simply “weak-minded.” They grapple with chemical imbalances beyond their control that guide their damaging behaviors. Although there is certainly an element of choice in substance abuse, it is but one of many, and the others need to be addressed before recovery can earnestly begin.

One of those elements is dual diagnosis.
