Understanding the intricate relationship between mental health disorders and substance abuse, our Dual Diagnosis Care provides integrated treatment to address both aspects simultaneously. This approach involves thorough assessments, personalized treatment plans, and continuous support to ensure long-term recovery.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Our MAT program combines FDA-approved medications with counseling and therapy to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and prevent relapse. Especially effective for opioid, alcohol, and other substance dependencies, this program supports the physical aspects of recovery alongside psychological care.


Recognizing the significant impact of trauma on addiction and mental health, our Trauma-Informed Care program is foundational to our treatment approach. It emphasizes empathy, understanding, and collaboration, creating a safe environment that promotes healing and empowers individuals to reclaim control over their lives.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Our Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in California stands out as a cornerstone of mental health and addiction treatment. This evidence-based therapy operates on the premise that negative thought patterns and behaviors can be changed, offering hope for those struggling with various mental health conditions, physical ailments, and behavioral challenges.


Brainspotting is a transformative therapy that allows individuals to address unresolved trauma and emotional pain that often underlie substance abuse. By focusing on specific eye positions that correlate with emotional activation, this method helps process trauma-related issues, reducing dependency on substances for coping.


Our Relapse Prevention program equips individuals with strategies and tools to maintain sobriety. Through psychoeducation, skill-building exercises, and support groups, we help clients develop personalized plans that enhance coping skills, build resilience, and foster healthy lifestyle habits.

Our Testimonials

Brittney Smith

My personal experience at new start in concord is was phenomenal. I spent 31 days in the residential program including detox and all around had such a great experience that it was difficult to leave. To start, the medical staff while I was in detox took care of all of my needs. The med techs, nurse practitioners and doctors made sure that I had a comfortable experience while going through the scary process of withdrawing. Not once did I run out of medication and they always made me feel like they cared for my wellbeing and safety. While in residential, the counselors, group facilitators, therapists, and case managers were amazing! Each and every one of them. They had so much knowledge, experience and education, and I learned so much. My personal therapist, Mellisa was absolutely wonderful, and she helped me dig deep and figure out the root causes of my issues that were tied to my past traumas. The family sessions were also extremely helpful. Moving onto the assistant Director and head Director, who both truly cared about the program, the clients, and their staff. It was evident in how the program ran like a perfect machine. They also took us on fun outings, like bowling and going to the beach. The facility was comfortable, clean and well organized. We have full-time staff that keep each bedroom and area of the buildings clean and provided the clients with all of our basic needs. I want to give a shout out to Ofi who was like everyone’s mom. We had some awesome amenities too like a gym, A game room, and an outside movie theater with a fire pit. I will truly miss my time at New Start in Concord, and will forever be grateful for this experience. Thank you :)

Came here just before Christmas of 2023 and spent 90 days of recovery here. The amount of growth that occurred for me was astonishing and it was the best choice I made for myself. 10/10 staff. Very friendly and welcoming. Stellar therapy team too. I can honestly say I was a little sad to be leaving. Felt like home at the end, and I will miss see everyone. All that to say I’m wildly thankful for the “new start” they helped me find in my life. If you or anyone you know needs support in recovery I highly recommend this facility.

Struggling with an addiction is incredibly difficult resulting in multiple exposures with treatment and detox centers. New Start Recovery Solutions redefines what a treatment center should be. The staff is exceptionally capable of providing heartfelt support to those experiencing crisis-inducing addiction issues. This review lacks the eloquence appropriate for describing the quality of care that is given at this center. I truly appreciate the non-judgmental, highly intelligent, and very patient care given to me during this unfortunate relapse.

By far the most effective establishment I’ve experienced for substance and mental health. The staff, from top to bottom, are by far the most caring, personable, and professional. Suffering from substance abuse for 20+ years I finally feel confident in my future and cared about as an individual. New Start is cutting edge in therapy and course work while making every patient feel like a valuable human being despite their struggles. Thank you to the entire New Start family for helping me begin this new journey in my life

Addiction is a complex condition characterized by compulsive drug or substance use despite harmful consequences. It affects the brain’s reward system, leading to uncontrollable behaviors.

Signs of addiction can include increased tolerance, withdrawal symptoms, neglecting responsibilities, secrecy or lying about substance use, and unsuccessful attempts to quit.

Treatment options include detoxification, counseling (individual or group therapy), medication-assisted treatment, residential rehabilitation programs, and support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.

Treatment effectiveness varies based on individual circumstances, but comprehensive treatment plans that address both physical and psychological aspects of addiction have been shown to be effective in many cases.

Dual diagnosis treatment addresses both addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders, such as depression or anxiety, which often accompany substance use disorders.

Finding the right treatment program involves assessing individual needs, considering factors like type and severity of addiction, co-occurring disorders, treatment goals, insurance coverage, and personal preferences.

Treatment typically begins with assessment and detoxification (if necessary), followed by therapy, medication (if applicable), and aftercare planning to prevent relapse and support long-term recovery.

The duration of treatment varies depending on individual needs and the severity of addiction. It can range from several weeks to months or longer for ongoing support.

Family support can be crucial in the recovery process. Involvement in therapy, education about addiction, and creating a supportive environment are beneficial for both the individual in treatment and their loved ones.

Express your concern in a supportive and non-judgmental way. Encourage them to seek professional help and provide resources for addiction treatment and support groups.
