New Foundation group programming is designed to assist clients in eliminating drug and alcohol use. The program is offered in a 26-week format, but a 6-week format is available for those with less intensive needs. Both formats help clients identify the negative effects of substance abuse. Alternative coping strategies and relapse prevention plans are also developed.

Participants in the New Foundation Program are often ordered to participate by the court system. Therefore, there are rules for participation, including regular attendance and attendance at twelve-step meetings. Upon completion of the program, each participant receives a certificate of completion, as well as recommendations for continued care.
