If you or a loved one are ready to take a step towards recovery and rehabilitation from drug or alcohol addiction, please take these steps…
Begin The Recovery Program Intake Process
Get in touch with one of our intake specialists to begin the process or get more information. We are here to help.
Intake varies from 24 hours to 2 weeks depending on time needed to very documents or if detox is needed. In processing an application, we consider:
- Insurance Options
- Mental health/medications
- Medical condition/medications
- Legal status, past and present
- Outstanding warrants
- Funding eligibility
- Level of care required
- Location or residency
FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY:
Although we cannot give advice on what to say to every addict, since every individual is different, but we do recommend that you speak the truth with love, care and concern and NOT in condemnation or criticism. Please be aware that we do not do interventions. We can refer 3rd party interventionists to you, so please call us if you need that help. If your loved one is suicidal or mentally unstable, please take the situation seriously and contact your local hospital as a first step, or call 911. Do not wait!

Intake Step One
Call or fill in the inquiry form to begin the process. If it appears that the program may be a good fit for the individual, we will direct you to our Application to download and fill in.
Step Two – Send in the Application
Once the Application is received, our Intake Counselors will connect with the Applicant to make further arrangements, including financial commitments and attending a medical detox, if needed. There is no charge to submit an application. After the application has been received, it will be reviewed by our Admissions staff. A decision on whether or not your child is a good fit for our program is made within one business day (usually within a few hours). If he is accepted, we will contact you to work out the final items and details for his admission.
Step 3 – Determine an Admission Date
Let us know when would be a good time for your boy to enter our program, so we can prepare for him.
Step 4 – Make a Deposit
A financial deposit is required before a bed will be reserved for your child. When the child enters the program, the entire deposit will be applied to his tuition bill. This deposit is nonrefundable.
Step 5 – Complete Enrollment Forms
Some additional medical information and release forms will be provided to you after your application has been approved.
Step 6 – Admit Your Boy
After you arrive with your child, he will be escorted to the dormitory where he will receive his uniform and basic gear. After all incoming students are ready; the group will leave for their first outdoor adventure, led by our staff members and a few leader students who are close to graduating. They are specifically trained to mentor the new boys on this trip and teach them how to be successful in our program.
During this time, parents/guardians will have the opportunity to meet with our residential staff and finish up any remaining paperwork. They will also meet with the Executive Director and Academic Director. Opportunity will be given to ask questions and to voice concerns. A tour of the campus will be given.
Parents/Guardians should plan to spend several hours on our campus on the day their child enters the program (usually until at least 3pm).
New Adventure Treatment Center admits boys ages 14-17 who have substance abuse issues, trouble with the law, or inappropriate or dangerous behaviors. Many kids who come to us have all three, since they all seem to go hand in hand. It is understood that troubled boys may not be overly excited about coming to New Adventure Treatment Center, however, it is required that a prospective student be informed in advance that he is coming here.
To be successful in making life change, parents/Guardians must be prepared to keep their child in the program until he successfully completes all phases. The first four phases of the program are completed while the boy is in residence at New Adventure Treatment Center (approximately 9-12 months). The fifth phase of the program is completed after he returns home (approximately 6-9 months). During the “In-residence” portion of the program, parents/guardians will attend several family “Reconnect” weekends. These special family events are critical components to your child’s success.

We Work with A Number of Insurance Carriers
Ten Questions You Should Ask Your Insurance Provider:
1. Does my plan provide coverage for treatment of drug abuse? It’s important to understand the federal Parity Act, but most people don’t know whether an employer is a self-funded group plan, or how their state laws handle benefits for substance abuse treatment. Your plan’s customer service representative will be able to tell you exactly what your benefits are. Sometimes benefits for drug rehab are handled by a “managed behavioral health organization (MBHO).” If that’s the case, your insurer should let you know the name of the company and how to contact them. Then you will deal with the MBHO, rather than your insurer.
2. Do I need a referral from my doctor? You’ll want to find this out before drug treatment, since in some cases, benefits can be reduced or denied if you don’t get required referrals. If you got emergency treatment without time for a required referral, call your insurer as soon as possible and explain, and then follow their instructions.
3. Is my diagnosis covered? Your health insurer will consider whether they believe your condition is “medically necessary.” Some plans may not cover repeat care if you didn’t follow through with your last course of treatment. Other times, they may cover your care, but not to the extent you would like. For instance, they may say that for your diagnosis, only outpatient treatment is covered. In addition, your insurer will consider if there is any reason that your treatment would fall under a general exclusion of the plan. This would be the case if you have coverage through your employer, but your addiction is caused by active service in the military. Another exclusion may apply if your treatment was court-ordered.
4. What type of plan do I have? Some common plan types include:
Preferred provider organizations (PPO) – With a PPO plan, you can choose a covered provider (as long as they meet the plan’s definition of a covered provider). However, you get a greater benefit if you go to “in-network” providers, rather than “out-of-network” providers.
Managed care plan – With a managed care plan, you must go to an in-network provider to receive coverage.
Consumer-driven health plan – These plans are usually a PPO hybrid, and have very large deductibles (thousands of dollars). Usually once the deductible is met, all covered services are paid at 100 percent.
5. Is there a difference in coverage between in-network and out-of-network care and if so, what is it? It’s common for plans to pay a higher benefit for in-network care. For example, a plan may pay, say, 100 percent of the covered cost for an in-network provider, but perhaps only 70 percent of the cost of an out-of-network provider. So it’s important to know what you’re getting into if you choose a non-network provider.
6. Is there a deductible? The deductible is the yearly amount you must pay before the plan will start paying benefits. In some instances, the deductible is waived, like for preventive care or sometimes for inpatient care. Under some plans, any amount applied toward your deductible in the last three months of the calendar year is carried over to help meet your deductible during the next year.
7. Will there be co-payments? Co-payments are like mini-deductibles. They apply to individual services, like office visits, prescription drugs, and others, and they usually do not apply toward your deductible. It’s important to understand how much your co-payments are and what they apply to. If you will be having outpatient care, you may have to pay a co-payment for each treatment day, and co-payments are usually due on the date of service.
8. What is my out-of-pocket (coinsurance) limit? If you pay a percentage toward your medical services, like 30 percent after 70 percent coverage or the 20 percent after 80 percent coverage, those amounts you pay go toward your yearly out-of-pocket limit. Once that limit is met, your remaining covered health expenses for the year are paid at 100 percent. If your rehabilitation is covered, your insurer will pay the provider directly, but you will be billed for out-of-pocket expenses.
9. Are there any restrictions on where I can get help? Besides considering “in-network” providers, your plan will likely only cover certain drug rehab facilities. You’ll want to ensure you find out up front, so that you can choose the most effective, and affordable drug rehab center.
10. How will my care be reviewed while I’m in treatment and how will any reviews impact my coverage and treatment? If you will be having inpatient or residential treatment, it’s important to know that your care will be monitored, likely by the insurer’s nurse case manager. As you make progress, your insurer will want to be certain that the level of your addiction treatment matches the severity of your condition. And they will decide this based on “concurrent” and other reviews.
