New Method Wellness saved my life. After years and years of struggling with drug and alcohol dependency, several stays in various treatment centers, I found New Method Wellness, and it changed everything for me. New Method gave me a safe, loving environment to work through childhood trauma. I was broken when I went there, zero hope left. The staff, as well as Ed, Susie, and Deanna loved me until I could love myself. Today, I have a little over 15 months of continuous sobriety.
