Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to equip our clients with the knowledge, life skills, spiritual tool kit and emotional support to produce a meaningful character transformation necessary for sustained long-term recovery. Together we work diligently with our clients to uncover, discover, and discard; to unearth the authentic self in each client, healing the underlying causes of addiction.
 
With a client-focused philosophy that acknowledges and embraces the unique strengths, experiences, and needs that each person brings to the treatment process, New Leaf Detox and Treatment is uniquely prepared to provide the life-changing care that will empower men and women to overcome their chemical dependence and mental health issues and make the other changes that will support their successful pursuit of happier and healthier futures, free from the constraints of addiction.
about us

We view sobriety and recovery as a process of change and transformation. Our name, New Leaf, is a metaphor for the change and transformation that begins for our clients when they commit to walking through our doors, and for our commitment to helping them turn over a new leaf, in all the ways we can.

Deeply sensitive to the challenges and the courage it takes for someone to walk through our doors.

We offer professional knowledge, understanding, respect, caring, and support, and commit to helping them through their journey to reclaim their lives through addiction treatment best practices and exemplars in evidence-based standards of care.

We see each person as an individual, with their own narrative and backstory, with unique and singular needs that need to be met with specialized, individualized treatment. We listen to your needs to help you begin your journey to full recovery. 

Our Vision

We wish for everyone who walks through our doors to receive the full array of tools, specific treatment, and vital resources they need to live their best life, free of pain and addiction.
