Providing integrated mental health/substance abuse treatment for Body/Mind/Community.
As part of the Broadlawns Medical Center Behavioral Health Division, New Connections is a co-occurring treatment program presented by Addiction Treatment Services.
The New Connections staff is pleased that you have chosen our program to provide co-occurring (mental health/ substance abuse) treatment services and support.
The decision to seek treatment for co-occurring needs is rarely easy; however, the most important step has been taken by becoming responsible for one’s own effort to make positive lifestyle changes.
