A bit about the business…
At New Convictions Recovery, they look at each individual holistically and take into consideration all aspects when treating them. Since addiction is a spiritual, emotional, and physical illness, they understand the importance of having a comprehensive view when treating clients. They pride themselves on offering services that treat the entire person, such as individual psychotherapy, spiritual counseling, and family counseling.
When treating the psychological/emotional aspect of addiction, they utilize well-established counseling methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and interpersonal process therapy (IPT). In treating the spiritual component, they incorporate a biblical worldview to understand, treat, and apply principles towards the spiritual healing of addictive disorders. Lastly, when treating the physical aspect, they are partnered with a certified nutritionist who is able to do a full nutrition evaluation to assess medical nutrition needs, weight loss, and overall nutrition education in the recovery process.
They realize that addiction is a complex disease, and each individual seeking treatment deserves specific care and attention.
