At New Day Recovery, it is our goal to provide high-quality treatment services to help with problems of substance abuse.  Our staff is committed to caring and promoting dignity and self-respect in and for each and every patient.  We provide you with the opportunity to obtain treatment and embrace recovery with the least amount of disruption in your life.  Your treatment is personalized from intake to discharge to ensure that you receive necessary medical and counseling attention.  As a result, you can continue to receive support from the community and your family.  Our staff consists of professionals who are qualified and trained in the treatment of addiction.  Family participation is highly encouraged because addiction impacts each member.  For additional information, read about an article that appeared in the Smyth County News here.

Mission and Philosophy

New Day Recovery’s mission is to merge cutting-edge medical integrative care and an authentic recovery community to heal lives broken by addiction.

Core Values

  • Professionalism
  • Integrity
  • Dedication to quality service
  • Authenticity

New Day Recovery embraces the belief that the patient is central to the treatment process and should be actively involved in the development and delivery of treatment care plans.  Our philosophy is to provide services that include a holistic approach while encompassing the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of the life experience as it relates to addiction. We believe that recovery is an ongoing process and a lifelong journey. We believe that recovery is possible. We are dedicated to the principles of honesty, humor, and hope.

Program Overview

  • Must be at least 18 years or older
  • Attend required scheduled orientation
  • Complete all necessary paperwork
  • All group and/or individual sessions MUST be scheduled prior to attendance
  • Complete both mental health and physical assessments to be considered for the program
  • Attend mandatory group and individual sessions, each will be determined with individual progress and needs
  • Observed drug screens will be conducted at each attendance of group session that are subject to random testing


As a Federally Qualified Health Center, we accept all insurance and offer an income-based fee scale for those who qualify.

Recovery Stage Color System

The number of individual sessions will be determined at the time of your assessment to be attended in conjunction with group sessions.* All stage colors will be accompanied by jelly bracelets that are to be worn every day, not only as an identifier of your stage but also as a part of the therapeutic intervention process.

Recovery Stage Red

The patient attends group two times a week for four weeks with a minimum of one individual counseling session per month.  At this stage of recovery, you will need the maximum amount of support which consists of therapeutic interventions (i.e., group, individual) and medication assistance, which requires complete adherence to attendance policies.

Recovery Stage Orange

The patient attends group one time a week for six weeks with a minimum of one individual counseling session per month. At this stage, you still need support in order to remain consistent in the recovery process.

Recovery Stage Green

The patient attends group every two weeks with a minimum of one individual counseling session per month.  At this stage, you will be maintained at this pace for the duration of your recovery journey to ensure consistency, maintenance, and processing of therapeutic interventions.

Recovery Stage Gold

The patient continues to attend group every two weeks with a minimum of one individual counseling session per month.  At this stage, you will start the taper process while continuing the therapeutic process to gradually remove yourself from medication so you can continue the life-long recovery without requiring medication assistance.
