A New Freedom offers comprehensive, flexible, and cost-effective substance abuse curriculum workbooks and behavioral health treatment resources for adult and juvenile correctional programs. These innovative state-of-the art materials provide quality programming at a very reasonable cost. Many states have selected these resources for use statewide in all of their juvenile or adult correctional facilities.

We provide over 400 mental health, substance abuse treatment, correctional intervention, and MI and CBT-based workbooks, curriculums, and similar resources to over 1,000 correctional facilities and programs nationwide. Our programs are especially affordable, as we provide you the rights to make unlimited copies for use on site.

Our resources address the most critical personal, environmental, and community risk factors, and build on the most important protective factors and assets. They are based on evidence-based concepts of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), the social learning model, and key coping and problem solving skills for relapse prevention (self-efficacy). These mental health and substance abuse curriculum workbooks are easy to implement by counselors and even peer staff. Our resources include lesson plans, DSM-IV-based treatment planning support for mental health programs, behaviorally-stated objectives, pre/post tests, and competency checklists. They are used in numerous substance abuse and mental health programs for both males and females in adult and juvenile correctional settings.

Our materials include gender-specific materials for women, and over 60 workbooks are available in Spanish. We also provide ice-breaking and "program start-up" activities appropriate to different age groups and certain workbooks are also provided in several versions for adult and juvenile men and women. Many workbooks are appropriate for correctional in-cell use, and an extended set of resources supports the community reintegration process, focusing on the key risk factors affecting recidivism.

We are happy to provide specific quotations, and invite you to review the program overviews and sample materials on this site.
