    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Founded in 1987, New Dawn Treatment Centers is a private, family-owned rehab based in the suburbs of Sacramento, Northern California. Across its various locations, the organization offers a full spectrum of addiction programs, including detox, residential care, and a few levels of outpatient treatment, including an intensive outpatient program (IOP).

The Residential Treatment Center is made up of separate homes for men and women, located in a quiet, residential neighborhood in the suburbs, 20 miles northeast of central Sacramento.


The program is offered at durations of 30, 60, or 90 days, making New Dawn one of the 33.6 percent of California-based facilities that offer residential care lasting longer than 30 days. Programs aim to put the client at the center of their own treatment. Each residence is gender-specific, but the therapies may be co-ed, as both the men’s and women’s residential facilities are located nearby each other.

The facility offers a broad program, which includes introductions to 12-Step and other programs, such as SMART Recovery and LifeRing, as well as evidence-based practices including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and the neurobiology of addiction. The in-house medical staff will also provide medication management services.

The facility aims to treat the whole person, providing membership to a local gym as well as holistic options such as equine-assisted therapy, yoga, art therapy, life coaching, Tai Chi, and acupuncture (which is only available at 8.2 percent of California-based facilities).

Clients who have successfully completed the treatment program may take advantage of free weekly aftercare meetings for life. The facility also offers a free 30-day stay for any successful graduates of the 90-day program who relapse within a year after treatment.


The team includes a a physician, nurses, master’s level therapists, addiction counselors, and support staff. The single alum polled by Rehabs.com to date on the level of staff support provided and the level of training found in counselors gave New Dawn five stars in each category.


Each house is intimate, sleeping up to six clients. Residents share a room with no more than one other client, and private rooms are also available for an extra fee. The residential center is a typical family-style home, with living and dining rooms, a TV, a kitchen, and a back patio with smoking and non-smoking areas. Clients may eat at their own residential facility, or in a communal dining space with residents of other houses. In both instances, food is cooked by an on-site chef who can accommodate a variety of diets, including vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and diabetic.

The single individual polled by Rehabs.com to date on the center's cleanliness, leisure offerings, and exercise options gave the survey metrics three, three, and two out of five stars, respectively.


All three of the alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com to date gave very positive feedback, repeatedly praising the center's food and caring staff. "Outstanding amenities from chef prepared meals to equine therapy to yoga to daily health club visits. And excellent counselors," Ross wrote in a representative comment. The single alum polled by Rehabs.com to date on New Dawn's performance in a variety of areas gave the facility four stars for its holistic offerings and the overall quality of its group counseling, and three stars for the overall quality of its individual counseling.

New Dawn has mixed feedback, skewing positive, on secondary sites, with average ratings of 4.4 stars based on seven reviews on Yelp and 3.6 stars based on eight reviews on Google, plus a one-star rating and a five-star rating on Facebook.[1] [2] [3]

The positive reviewers repeatedly noted that they achieved sobriety at New Dawn after several failed attempts elsewhere, often praising the center's knowledgeable staff and the tools they were given here. "This was not my first go at Detox and Residential but hopefully it will be my last. My experience from start to finish with New Dawn has been positive and therapeutic... They not only treated my addiction, they treated my body and soul as well," Tina wrote in a representative comment on Yelp.


"Disappointed in the staff's lack of communication with the parents of son that went here... We have no idea of where our son is now and we know that his bank account has been closed," wrote C.L.H., the single loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date. The reviewer also complained of difficulties getting hold of billing statements.

Secondary sites (averages reported above) hold several glowing reviews from family members thanking New Dawn for bringing back their loved one. "Our family was fearful we were going to lose our son to the disease of alcoholism... It has been a long road but our son is now 75 days sober," Diane wrote in a typical comment on Yelp. However, secondary sites also yield two strong complaints from loved ones, both of them complaining of inadequate treatment. "Promised counseling was not delivered in a timely manner. Classes were redundant," Joanna wrote on Google, while on Yelp Kevin complained that the center was unequipped to treat his wife's benzodiazepine addiction.


"ALL clients are treated respectfully by ALL staff and New Dawn strives to meet the needs of ALL their clients," staffer Dave wrote in a long, glowing review on Rehabs.com.


The cost of treatment at the facility is not published, but New Dawn has a treatment pricing guarantee, promising to match the cost of treatment at any comparable facility. The facility also offers discounts to veterans, first responders, and its own alumni, and has partnered with a financial loans company to increase the accessibility of treatment for all clients.

New Dawn is among the 56 percent of California-based rehabs that accept private insurance. The facility does not accept Medicaid, Medicare, or TriCare.
