We are in the business of helping people to heal their lives from the destruction of the disease of addiction. We believe that addiction is a primary physiological illness, progressive in nature and terminal if left untreated. We know that we have solutions and that any patient who follows our treatment plan will begin to heal. Our programs encourage and reinforce the individual’s belief that recovery from dependence on drugs and/or alcohol is obtainable. This begins with an understanding and awareness that conditions of alcohol and drug dependence can be interrupted. With new close relationships, coupled with an increased understanding about the nature of alcohol and drug dependence, the individual is confronted with powerful personal incentives and a desire to pursue a new lifestyle. We commit ourselves, as our first priority, to the patient in treatment. Next, in the certain knowledge that we can help, we commit ourselves to finding and attracting the alcoholic and addict who still suffers. We recognize that key to our continued success are our ability to reach the addict in need and our willingness to take immediate action to help. The impact upon the community results in the individual becoming a working, productive member of society. The impact of drug and alcohol abuse in the community is reflected by the sober lifestyles of the exemplary staff and sober peer flow at the center. The individual becomes independent, rather than dependent upon society and the community. We constantly seek ways to improve our work and to demonstrate our empathy and respect for one another and for our patients. We recognize and celebrate effort, and we acknowledge that mistakes, as long as we are trying, are opportunities to learn. We commit to continuous improvement and growth. Underlying all of our actions is our fundamental belief that at the New Beginning Fellowship Center we provide the finest addiction treatment available anywhere, that the work we do is of social and material value to our clients and the community, and that people, both those we work with and those we serve, are our greatest and most precious asset.
