Why Fresh Start Is Unique Video Parent Testimonials Video Graduate Testimonials Video


Our program is unique and effective because we do not treat addiction as an inherited or incurable disease, nor do we believe that it needs to be addressed with endless periods of treatment or medication.

Our philosophy is that drug and alcohol abuse begins with physical and/or emotional pain and discomfort. The addict is using drugs or alcohol as a coping mechanism to lessen their awareness of these problems. We specialize in procedures that help our clients regain their awareness so they can properly identify and overcome the problems that are perpetuating their addiction. Our holistic, drug-free approach addresses the body, mind and spirit, allowing our clients to ultimately regain their self-respect and self-control so they can learn to live sober, happy and productive lives.


Our program methodology has been accomplishing effective treatment with proven success since 1966. In multiple outcome studies over a span of forty years, an average of 75% of responding graduates of our program methodology reported they were living drug-free lives six months or more after completing it. In fact, our success is the main reason we can be confident in standing behind our results by offering a free review program to any eligible client who relapses within 6 months of graduating our program.
