Drug Addiction Treatment Program
The nexus of the idea that became Camino Pathways was the recognition that addiction and substance abuse are chronic illnesses. For the past fifty years or more, our community has treated addiction as an acute illness. We give an individual 30 days in treatment, pronounce them cured, and then scratch our heads when within a year he or she is not sober and in good health. The facts are these; 86% of those who enter residential treatment complete their program yet less than 10% are still in recovery a year later. At New Choices Treatment Centers we do not believe these facts point to a failure in any particular therapeutic intervention rather we feel it is a failure of the system itself. We decided in order to best help those suffering from addiction we needed to reimagine that system. It is because of this that we have created Camino Pathways.
