New Path

Hospitalization can be a time of uncertainty and confusion for our patients and their family members. We want to assist to minimize the degree of stress they are experiencing during this critical and important time in their lives.

Medical detoxification and psychiatric stabilization provide the bases for identifying the appropriate level of care. The primary emphasis of New Path is to eliminate the use of addictive substances and alcohol, stabilize diagnosed psychiatric disorders, and introduce our patients to the 12-step program of recovery and other supportive resources. Total freedom from addictive substances and treating the psychiatric disorders increase the patient’s ability to maintain a sober lifestyle.
