Our compassion is unmeasurable


Founded in 2006 by Ed and Susie Hopson-Blum, New Method Wellness is truly a family business. Over the past ten years, with Bing Crosby joining as a board member in 2011, New Method Wellness has grown its California rehabilitation center exponentially, providing thousands of individuals the help they need to break free from the bondage of substance abuse addiction and truly start living. Each of our founders has a special relationship with substance abuse, whether it’s from personal experience or observance of a loved one suffering from addiction.

Their compassion is immeasurable. A beautiful Southern California treatment facility and unique therapy methods, New Method Wellness is not your usual recovery center. Primary treatment, dual diagnosis, private treatment, family group, outpatient treatment and extended care are only a few of the addiction treatment programs offered at New Method Wellness — there is a program for everyone. Not every person suffering from substance abuse addiction is the same. Every client requires individual attention and catered therapy, which is why the 3:1 staff to client ratio proves to be so successful. When treating persons with substance abuse addiction, it is important to treat the whole person – mind, body, and spirit – because when one aspect is off-balance, it can have a negative impact on the recovery process. That’s why at New Method Wellness, we aim to restore balance to all aspects of an individual to optimize healing and minimize relapse.

Our holistic treatment methods include the following:

Family values are important at New Method Wellness. Each client becomes a part of our family and they have the opportunity to stay involved in all aspects of our center once they join our alumni program. Happy sobriety is largely determined by the quality of each individual’s sober community, and we strive to meet that goal by providing a safe, comforting and warm community for each of our clients.
