Conditions We Treat

At Next Chapter Treatment, we treat substance abuse disorders, behavioral addictions, and co-occurring psychological disorders related to past traumatic experience – such as PTSD and depression. We believe that underlying trauma and co-occurring addictive disorders work to exacerbate the symptoms of substance dependency, thus we work to treat all existing disorders simultaneously.

Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol is the most commonly used addictive substance in the United States. Drugs and alcohol can first be used as an experiment of curiosity and often lead to abuse. Nearly every alcoholic and addict can’t explain why or how they become addicted. People often assume that an absence of good morals or will-power is at hand. But in reality, Drug and Alcohol Addiction is a complex disease, and abstinence takes much more than moral values or a strong will. At Next Chapter, we confront the disease with both comprehensive clinical and 12-Step Immersion services to treat the underlying causes and issues. We provide our clients with the education and tools necessary to begin recovering from the disease of addiction.

Sex and Love Addiction

As human-beings, it is within our nature to want the experience of sex and love. However, when sex and love is characterized by compulsively seeking relationships for sex or romance despite the negative social, emotional, financial, or physical consequences, it could mean addiction. At Next Chapter, those struggling with Sex and Love Addiction are treated with clinical therapy and 12-Step Immersion services. Through treating the underlying causes and issues which often include trauma, clients can begin the healing process and learn to experience healthy intimacy and relationships. Learn More


Trauma is a form of emotional damage and the result of a severely distressing event or series of events. Trauma results from an overwhelming amount of stress that exceeds one’s ability to cope or integrate the resulting emotions with the experience at the time of the event. Trauma, in its broadest sense, is one’s inability to effectively process, accept, and move on from life experiences perceived as overwhelming. All our therapists have been trained in the Pia Melody PIT Trauma model which is heavily incorporated into the treatment process. This treatment includes therapeutic groups, experiential groups such as soul collage, drum therapy, healing touch, individual sessions, EMDR, and 12-Step groups. Learn More


At Next Chapter we have adopted Pia Melody’s definition of co-dependency. “Co-dependency is a disorder of developmental immaturity caused by relational trauma or family of origin trauma.” Co-Dependency encompasses five core symptoms which include self-esteem, boundaries, owning one’s reality, self-care issues, and moderation/containment. Those who struggle with Co-Dependency often have control issues, resentments, spirituality issues, addiction issues and intimacy issues which lead to relational problems such as relational esteem issues, enmeshment/avoidant issues, dishonesty, and dependency issues. At Next Chapter, we have incorporated Pia Melody’s PIT model which addresses the nature of co-dependency by linking adult dysfunctional behaviors with childhood trauma’s. Learn More

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, is the persistent mental and emotional stress occurring as the result of any personal experience of violence, including sexual abuse, physical abuse, severe neglect, loss, and/or the witnessing of violence, terrorism, and natural disasters. At Next Chapter, we educate and treat the symptoms of PTSD. Our staff has also been trained on trauma informed and trauma specific care to provide a safe environment for clients to begin the healing process. We use a combination of cognitive and behavioral therapy, EMDR, Experiential groups, interpersonal and case management techniques to help clients address present symptoms and establish on-going recovery.

Internet Addiction

At Next Chapter, we treat many addictions including the excessive use of the internet and all its forms. Similar to other addictions, Internet Addiction is characterized as compulsive behavior that interferes with work, daily life and personal relationships. Internet Addiction might be a substitution for real-life human connection, which clients are unable to achieve normally. We treat the underlying causes of Internet Addiction and help clients reconnect to a healthier lifestyle. Learn More

Gambling Addiction

At Next Chapter, we assess our clients for various addictions including gambling. Gambling Addiction is the inability to control impulses relating to gambling, betting, or making wagers in various settings including sports games, races, casinos, internet gambling, etc. Like other addictions, Gambling Addiction affects personal relationships, finances, employment or other important opportunities as a result. At Next Chapter, we use a combination of evidence-based Clinical Therapy Techniques and 12-Step Immersion to help clients suffering from Gambling Addiction through treating the underlying issues that drive the addiction and lead to relapse.

Work Addiction

Work Addiction is regarded as the compulsive need to work or be at work. Those who are work addicted, are unable to control the amount of mental and physical preoccupation relating to work or employment. Indications of Work Addiction often include heightened anxiety or inability to relax away from work, lack of sleep, inability to maintain personal relationships, and health issues due to sleeplessness, poor exercise or proper diet. Most work addicts believe they are the only ones who can do the job at hand. At Next Chapter, our clients engage in therapeutic groups which focus on work addiction and the underlying issues.

My journey (and growth!) of these last several months has been tremendous, and I could not be more grateful to Next Chapter and all involved for your part in helping me to open my eyes and heart to a self-awareness I have not had in a very, very long time. I took your suggestions from our first initial conversations of getting back to 12 step meetings, counseling and my own inward continued journey. I express genuine, true heartfelt thanks for that
