At NewDay, addiction is understood as a complex condition with multiple causes, and acknowledges that the lines separating use, abuse and addiction are not always clear. Treating addiction as a chronic disease that will require ongoing management, clients are supported with individual and group therapy and are encouraged to attend 12-step meetings. There is a strong emphasis on aftercare planning and relapse prevention.
