Never let your guard down

Addiction is a chronic, progressive, potentially fatal disease that remains latent even after the addicted individual has stopped abusing substances. Because no patient is ever totally safe from the threat of relapse, Nouveau Départ places a strong emphasis on post-cure treatment, with structured weekly follow-ups for at least six months. The follow-up period with some Nouveau Départ doctors and medical staff can be much longer, sometimes up to five years. Often the patients themselves choose to continue checking in with us one a month for an indefinite period. This long term approach helps patients 'stay the course' in their new, abstinent lives.
