Newport substance abuse treatment philosophy is based on the belief that chemical dependence is a disease, which affects the individual’s physical, emotional, spiritual, and social life. At the level of dependence, the individual treats his/her moods and feelings with substances, and his/her behavior becomes more and more instinctual. Newport believes that detoxification from chemicals and freedom from physical withdrawal and pain is a necessary first step in the journey of recovery and sobriety. Addiction to drugs is not infectious; what is infectious is sobriety. Every family, every friend, every taxpayer, loves a sober addict. Treatment is superior to incarceration.
More than 50% of clients with severe mental illness have co-occurring substance use problems. An integrated treatment under the same roof, by the same inter-disciplinary treatment teams, has been shown to produce better outcome.
