New Start Center for Recovery is a 30-bed free-standing facility located on the campus of Intermountain Hospital in Boise, Idaho. This program is focused on adults who are seeking treatment for the use or abuse of alcohol, illicit drugs, or prescription medications and who may also have issues with past trauma, depression, post-traumatic stress, anxiety or other emotional and mental health concerns.

New Start is a 21- to 28-day inpatient treatment program which integrates substance abuse treatment with medical and nursing care, mental health issue management, as well as case management, group counseling and individual sessions. The program offers a balanced, flexible approach to the treatment of substance abuse diagnoses.

Treatment is initiated with the stabilization of the patient based on their presenting needs, and occurs in a safe and supporting environment. If an individual requires a monitored, managed detox and evaluation, this can be accomplished as an initial step of the New Start program.

The focus of New Start is on the recovery process, with an additional strong emphasis on the stressors and trauma that often accompany addiction.

Treatment contains components of psycho-educational classes, cognitive-behavioral therapies, interactive recreational activities, family counseling and support, relapse prevention, processing shame, guilt and blame, mental health support and education, and awareness of co-dependent behaviors. The program's overall goal is to assist individuals in gaining and maintaining their sobriety while understanding any underlying emotional or mental health issues.

For those interested in the New Start program, please call our admissions department directly. Our professional staff will quickly and confidentially assess your needs and appropriateness for participation in the program.

New Start is covered by many insurance plans. It is a voluntary treatment program and you will need to have your insurance preauthorize your stay prior to admission. To receive insurance preauthorization, you will also need to meet admission criteria for the program. Please contact us for assistance with insurance preauthorization, determination of your clinical appropriateness, and self-pay options.
