Evidence Based Therapies

In our 30 years of experience, we have found that our patients have the best chance at success when we are providing them with only the most tested and proven evidence based therapies.  These include Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectical Behavioral therapy (DBT).  Together, these evidence based therapies will have the most positive effect on an individual’s motivation to change. These therapies also help one to understand their struggles and find the courage and tools to overcome them.

The Importance of Individualized Treatment and Counseling

Of course, individualized treatment planning that takes into account each person’s unique history, experiences and challenges is also extremely important.  New Dawn offers a minimum of three individual counseling sessions per week in our 30 – 90 day Residential Treatment program.  Research has shown that individual counseling that is frequent and patient centered is one of the single most influential factors affecting long term sobriety.

Outcomes Supported Treatment Approach

Outcomes Reports that are based on the feedback and success rates of our clients support the importance of evidence based therapie. We also provide an introduction to 12 step (AA and NA) and alternative support options such as LifeRing and Smart Recovery, and SOS. These support groups provide different philosophies about living life in sobriety. While their unique approaches to living in sobriety are not for everyone,  they have helped millions of people stay sober long after they have graduated a treatment program.  

Lifetime Aftercare Support

New Dawn also offers non 12-step based support groups weekly with our Lifetime Aftercare program. This is a free benefit to anyone that graduates one of our programs. These support groups are facilitated by one of our licensed addiction counselors, and available only to our alumni. Below you will find a short sampling of the evidence based therapy groups that we offer at New Dawn’s drug and alcohol rehab programs.
