Screening, Addiction Assessment, Intervention
New Start Recovery Solutions provides comprehensive screening and addiction assessment to individuals and families to assure placement into the appropriate level of treatment to start a full and successful recovery.
Our staff understands that effective treatment requires a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to each patients drug use patterns and dual diagnosis (co-occurring disorders).
Whatever level of care is chosen, the ultimate goal is to motivate each individual to achieve recovery and seek a better quality of life. Making the jump from active addiction to active recovery can seem impossible.
What Is an Intervention?
An intervention is a well thought-out process and plan that can mean the difference between life and death for an addict or alcoholic in crisis.
The purpose of the plan is to get your friend or loved one to the point where he or she will accept help and enter into a treatment program. An addiction intervention is a powerful tool, and they work more often than not.
David Burke, the Director at New Start Recovery Solutions, is an experienced and professional addiction interventionist. In California, we have East Bay and Northern California rehabilitation centers that you can check into at any time.
The reason why intervention: Because intervention is a process that can interrupt a potentially life-threatening addiction.
Another reason why intervention could be an effective solution when a loved one is suffering with a drug or alcohol addiction: an individual with this type of a problem will often become delusional and not realize they have an addiction problem. When an addict reaches this point, they may not have the ability to have any real insight into how serious their substance abuse problem has become.

After Intervention – Medical Drug and Alcohol Detox
You (or your friend or loved one) have resolved to stop using drugs or alcohol. Congratulations! This is the first step to regaining sobriety and the importance cannot be underestimated.
Determining the need for medical detox will depend on many factors. Elements like your substance of choice, usage interval, and amount come into play. Trying to detox yourself can be a painful, uncomfortable, or even deadly process.
Now, medical detox from the addictive substance/s must occur. Recovery support begins with detox from drugs and alcohol. The right detox program helps individuals through physical withdrawal symptoms and provides the medical assistance needed during this rough time.
Is Quitting on Your Own Harmful?
Depending on the individual’s history of abuse and medical and physical conditions – the severity of detox effects will differ.
However, the risks of detox for all serious drug and alcohol users can be dangerous. Detox should never be attempted alone. A sudden stop of drug and alcohol use can lead to seizures, heart attacks and strokes. In severe cases, unsupervised detox can even cause death.
