About NewDay Center

Our History

The seeds of NewDay were first planted in the late 1990s when Dan Johnson taught through the book of Exodus in his church. As a result, numerous people sought Dan’s help in confronting their addictive habits.  In time, his burden grew for both individuals caught in addiction and their families.
Eventually, NewDay was birthed.

Since its beginning, NewDay has provided counseling to an ever-growing number of individuals and families. NewDay also became the referral choice of numerous churches, developed highly effective recovery and church training curriculums, and published several books.

Addiction Counseling

At NewDay, we know that drug and alcohol addiction is an intense problem and an ever-growing epidemic across the country and around the world. Every 4 minutes, someone in the US dies as the result of an overdose or alcohol-related cause. The Surgeon General estimates that approximately 10% of the US population suffers from an addiction, with nearly 22 million being untreated. This translates to 1 in 3 families being directly affected by addiction. Learn more about our programs and how we help individuals, families, and organizations overcome addiction.

Mental Health Counseling

NewDay also provides mental health counseling for individuals, couples, and families. Our licensed professionals specialize in helping people with a variety of mental health concerns including anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, faith issues, church woundedness, personality disorders, process addictions, relationship concerns, life transitions, and much more.

Our Mission

The NewDay Center provides comprehensive care to individuals and families using evidence-based mental health and addiction treatment while emphasizing a Christian Worldview as an anchor.

Our Approach to Healing for the Whole Person
  • Spiritual: Healing involves a spiritual foundation and engagement with a church community.
  • Physical: By integrating a physical approach, we provide daily life skills to experience true hope and freedom.
  • Relational: We believe that freedom is held in the community, so we encourage and develop practical tools to foster strong interpersonal relationships that lead to healing.
  • Purposeful: Without a strong sense of purpose, those struggling with addiction and mental health issues will continue to struggle. We can help.

Freedom Is At The Heart Of NewDay’s Ministry Because Of God’s Plan For Everyone To Experience And Enjoy Freedom.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.” Galatians 5:1

Spritual Formation

As a faith-based organization, we believe that freedom from substance abuse and addiction includes not only therapeutic and medical services, but that it also involves the development of a strong spiritual foundation and engagement with a church community. NewDay holds to beliefs that have characterized evangelical Christianity for many years.


These include the belief that the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and without error. We believe in one God Who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We also believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to give Himself as the sufficient sacrifice for sin. Finally, we believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him but became alienated in that relationship through willful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.


We believe that the gospel—faith alone in Jesus Christ alone based upon His sacrificial death on the cross, burial, and resurrection–is the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin and gift of eternal life. Additionally, we believe that all Christians are to become like Christ by obeying the Word of God and yielding to the Spirit of God who lives within them. We believe that true freedom occurs not only when an individual achieves sobriety, but also when an individual chooses to follow God on a positive and purposeful path—where the lure to relapse is fading.
