Philosophy

On 17 acres in serene New Hampshire, New Freedom Academy is dedicated providing high quality treatment for adult men and women. We guide clients through the early stages of recovery by helping them break through barriers of fear, anxiety, and apathy. We help our clients see that the events of life are not to be avoided but embraced; and our reactions must change if we are to be successful, joyous, and free. Our co-occurring disorders treatment team is led by a psychiatrist, direct care managed by a psychiatric nurse practitioner, and the process is supported by master’s-level therapists, all well-versed in addiction treatment. This approach cuts through to determine precisely what is going on and treats with a combination of therapy, non-addictive medicines, holistic and sensible applications to help our clients become stable and able to internalize recovery. As an abstinence-based treatment center, we take a thoughtful and grounded approach to co-occurring disorders. While medications can be somewhat effective at stabilizing clients with acute diagnoses and for some they are needed long term, our treatment focuses on improvement through an effective change of lifestyle. We find this often facilitates the diminishment of disorders with environmental origins. We realize that a 180-degree change of life can be very difficult, and our team monitors and supports this endeavor through evidence-based practices, such as meditation and grounding exercises, experiential therapeutic approaches, sleep studies and plans, health plans, nutrition balance, proper hydration, physical exercise, and more.

The team loved me until I could love myself. They blocked me from leaving at a time where walking off property seemed like a great idea in the middle of a snow storm. They worked with me and encouraged me when all I wanted to do was give up after coming in from a humiliating relapse

New Freedom Academy saved not only saved one but two of my family members lives. With the dedicated and compassionate staff at New Freedom Academy my loved ones not only received treatment for their disease but they got a second chance at life. The staff was so great keeping me in the loop every step of the way and included me in my loved ones recovery. It was an amazing experience to see the culture that is created at New Freedom Academy, it has a personal feel with an emphasis on compassion. No two people are the same and the staff at New Freedom Academy recognize this which helped personalize the care my loved one received. New Freedom Academy is far more then a recovery center, they�re a family creating positive change for so many people.

New Freedom Academy save the lives of two of my family members. I watched the compassionate staff at NFA transform both my cousins into active, happy and positive people. What’s better is the treatment was so individualized that both my family members were able to reenter society without changing who they were on the inside. NFA helped them rebuild their lives and build meaningful relationshipss.
