The 12-Step Philosophy
Here at New River Wellness Center, our Drug & Alcohol Addiction Treatment program is based on 12 Step philosophy. We use the same 12 Step program that Alcoholics Anonymous founded in 1934. Our clients experience 12 Step meetings throughout the week and will find 12 Step philosophy incorporated in other aspects during their stay. Our clients are highly encouraged to participate in the 12 Step meetings as well as immersing themselves in the process of working the steps with a sponsor of their choice.

Our highly experienced staff comes from the fields of psychiatry, clinical therapy, nutrition and other health care fields. Additionally, our staff is dedicated to research and medical innovation and, with that knowledge, they create drug and alcohol treatment programming that is highly effective and evidence-based. From the beginning of treatment through to completion, the staff at NRWC is with each client every step of the way.
Individual Counseling with Our Skilled Addiction Therapists
In regards to services, New River Wellness Center provides client individual counseling from our on-site therapists. The goal of individual counseling is to identify the underlying causes of a client’s addiction, including family history, past traumatic events and those specific triggers that can lead to substance use. Once identified, we can help clients work through those issues through the use of therapeutic techniques such as cognitive therapy, trauma resolution, and family therapy.
Group Therapy to Treat Drug & Alcohol Abuse
Along with one-on-one counseling, NRWC offers group therapy sessions and counseling which focuses on those important topics that pertain to addiction and recovery such as urges and cravings, anger management and family dynamics and history, among others. Group therapy has proven to be an essential tool in the fact that clients can share their struggles with substance abuse with peers who are experiencing similar situations. This commonality provides the client with a supportive atmosphere to explore their feelings in a safe environment.
Dual-Diagnosis Program & Trauma Therapy
Many men and women who suffer from substance abuse have underlying mental health issues and/or have experienced trauma in their lives. Since these issues lie at the root of an individual’s addiction, New River Wellness Center provides dual diagnosis treatment as well as PTSD and trauma treatment. These programs help identify those underlying problems and utilizes a wide variety of therapeutic techniques and scientifically-based interventions to fully address those concerns.
Drug & Alcohol Relapse Prevention
New River Wellness Center also offers clients relapse prevention services, which is another critical element in the addiction treatment process. Once a client leaves formal drug treatment, they will need tools to help them maintain their sobriety once they resume their day-to-day activities and routines. The goals of relapse prevention include identifying the triggers that can lead to drug and alcohol use, learning the warning signs that are unique to each client, and most importantly learning new coping skills that will help clients avoid or handle triggers so that relapse can be avoided.
Life Skills Training, Preparation for the Real World
Additionally, New River Wellness Center offers clients important life skills training that utilizes a variety of daily living techniques to prepare clients for transition back into the real world. When in treatment, clients will be housed in home-like living quarters and will learn basic skills such as grocery shopping and budgeting money while in a safe and sober environment.
