A New Beginning

A New Beginning Florence Alabama

A New Beginning is dedicated to providing women with a nurturing and safe environment to start their recovery journey. Located in northwest Alabama, surrounded by a dynamic and active recovery community, our drug and alcohol treatment center has transformed the lives of numerous women who were battling substance dependence. Our program empowers these women to break free from the vicious cycle of addiction, enabling them to become productive and happy members of society.


A New Beginning offers long-term residential treatment specifically designed for women who are struggling with addiction. We are located in Florence, Alabama.


A New Beginning operates two facilities: Helton Court, situated in downtown Florence, where clients will reside for a minimum of one month, and Country Living, a facility located 10 miles outside of Florence. Clients start their treatment journey at Helton Court, where they actively participate in chores, individual and group counseling sessions, as well as engage in 12-step meetings.

Our program’s duration typically ranges from six months to one year. During this time, clients are encouraged to engage in exercise, attend yoga classes, and participate in life skill classes. Additionally, we offer a 16-week parenting program for mothers. Vocational training is a crucial element of our treatment, as it equips clients with the necessary job skills to succeed in the workforce. A New Beginning also provides faith-based treatment alongside its other offerings.

To ensure ongoing support, A New Beginning has established connections with community churches and businesses. These connections help our clients stay connected to support groups and access financial aid when needed.


Our executive director is a certified addictions professional and an internationally certified alcohol and drug counselor. Additionally, two other staff members listed on our website are certified counselors.


Our main location, Helton Court, is situated within walking distance of Florence’s historic downtown area. During their first month of treatment, clients reside at Helton Court, where they are expected to complete chores. Shared rooms are equipped with twin beds and dressers. Electronic devices such as cell phones and computers are not allowed on the premises. Each client is provided with a YMCA membership, conveniently located across the street.

After completing their initial month of treatment, clients have the option to reside at our other facility, Country Living, which is located 10 miles outside of Florence. Country Living offers opportunities for clients to search for employment, and it also features an on-site pool.

For example, one alum named Nancy highlighted the positive impact that the faith-based program had on her life, calling it the most important decision she ever made. Another alum, Connie, commended the program for teaching them how to change instead of simply telling them what to do.

  • Nice suburban location, organized, good and experienced staff. A bit narrowly focused around the treatment regimen. Had a good experience thus far. Would recommend for alchohol and drug rehab.
