At New Hope, we are acutely aware of what can be accomplished during the period of time a patient is in our care. As such, our focus and each patient’s treatment plan are designed to address his or her needs during those first critical weeks and months of recovery.
We see the larger objective as being the creation of a life in recovery built upon sound principles like those consistent with Alcoholics, Narcotics and Gamblers Anonymous programs and other self help recovery and psychologically sound principles. We also believe that healthy values manifest themselves in responsibility and that the ability to meet and respond to one’s own needs will not interfere with another’s development.
Applying this philosophy, our goal is to instill “recovery behavior,” the lifetime process that can begin at New Hope and that calls for the recovering person to continually strive for responsible behavior and self-improvement in recovery.
- Client Primacy: a focus that prioritizes clinical outcome and works to facilitate the environmental conditions that are necessary for the recovery and ongoing welfare of those we serve
- Ethical Practice: the pursuit of fairness in all of our relations: listening to understand, acknowledgment when we are wrong, and taking corrective and restorative actions when called for
- Collaboration: knowing the limits of our individual and collective expertise; the importance of client self-knowledge and the therapeutic relationship; and when calling on the expertise of others will help clients meet their needs
- Accountability: acknowledging our responsibility to all stakeholders for our actions and the outcomes of our work and dealings
- Colleague Care: the recognition that the organization exists as much for the people it employs as it does for those it serves
