The one thing that made these people different from other centers I have been in. They truly do care, from the Founder to Executive Director to house staff. They really make you feel at home. They take you out to do fun things on outing days. Thank you

You must buy your own food, no onsite therapists. So pet friendly, the couch smells like wet dog. House manager rarely there. Poor bookkeepers don't track what you've paid.

This place has gotten me over 10 years of heroin addition, the approach of this place is remarkable. I mean they really care. Because of the success I have had I can't say anything bad about this place. This is my 4th treatment center. From the time you walk in, you know the place cares about seeing you change your life. Because of this treatment center I am now and have been for the last year and six months, living life again. They found and help me realize what I have lost and now have it all back. I spent 120 days here and every day was life changing.
    Unforgenitly I can not stop people that have been removed from the center for one reason or another, may it be stealing from a client a NFL Jersey, or being just a dirty person and write bad reviews. Usually if you read them carful you can tell. I have a staff that is beyond approach in the dedication of helping those who come to us and ask to help. We not only treat the addiction we help give them life skills back. I myself teach a credit class on Fridays for an hour to teach the importance of credit and how to maintain it. We had some bumpy roads when we first open, it has been hard to find the right houseman. As you can tell by the reviews; I read these and the things they say "I am only into it for the money" well if that were true I would not only have private rooms or semi private treatment, pet friendly and a beautiful center. " I would collect insurance monies; if I do it for the money" they were dismissed from the center, some within three days no matter what they say; I am proud of New Life Treatment proud of my staff and proud of the clients that have come threw our doors for help. We teach our family to move on in life and only look to the future, so many of my clients do not write reviews for those reasons. We are a semi-private center, some of our clients are high profile. We have a beautiful, clean very peaceful center. The best compliment I have received from a client. I felt like I was detoxing and getting treatment at home.

    When a staff called me and said some former employees are writing bad reviews would I take the time to write one seeing how I was in his place for six months as a client court ordered. Where do I start; my life my wife\'s life and my children\'s lives have changed for the better. The staff did change three or four times while I was there, well I should say the house managers did. THe one thing I will say about one man in particular is he doesn\'t risk the betterment of his clients on staff. If they don\'t meet the standards he has set, he relieves them right away. I love that about this guy. Some of the clients were taking control of a new house person, it was uncanny how he spotted it and released them right away. Clients that came in who was not getting with the program he put out and refunded there money to them, I know two for sure. New Life program is the best experience of my life so far, I could never thank them enough.
