About New Start

New Start is an education facility, created with the community in mind, that is taking on a new approach to education; offering three classrooms that will offer many of the court-mandated classes. All our classes are offered frequently and are taught by highly educated staff using nationally accredited and evidence-based courses. New Start has upfront, one-time, sliding scale fees that are easy to understand and an efficient system for communicating with the courts and officers on the clients’ behalf to ensure that everyone involved in the education process is on the same page. We have three simple rules for attending class: show up on time, be polite, and participate.

Living in Balance: Moving from a Life of Addiction to a Life of Recovery was written by Jeffrey A. Hoffman, Ph.D., Mim J. Landry, and Barry D. Caudill, Ph.D. The research was funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse and is the basis for our curriculum at New Start to Live, providing a flexible program that draws from cognitive-behavioral, experiential, and Twelve-Step approaches to help clients achieve life-long success. It utilizes both the philosophical context and the practical application of the program to assist the facilitator in treating multiple clients at the same time. The program is listed on the National Registry of Evidence based Programs and Practices (NREPP) and has recently been updated to meet the criterion for the DSM-5.
