New Beginnings Lake Charles is a private corporation that exists solely for the purpose of treating patients and their families for the disease of chemical dependency. In addition to medical detoxification, inpatient, outpatient services, and family treatment programs, we provide extended care services, aftercare, educational programs, and relapse prevention programs designed to help chemically dependent patients and their families.
New Beginnings Lake Charles was founded in 2008 by Dick Kessler. For decades, he was nationally known and recognized in the addiction recovery and treatment industry. A former addict himself, Dick realized there were very few places to seek help for addiction. When Dick became sober, he made it his life’s mission to make sure that those struggling with alcohol and drug addiction had a place to go for help. With Dick’s vision and dedication and a little help from some friends, today New Beginnings Lake Charles is licensed for 28 residential beds. Our facility is fully licensed by the State of Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals.
New Beginnings Lake Charles is dedicated to treating those affected by substance use disorders, and their families.
