Apply & Connect

We understand that making a change can be challenging. Our goal is to make taking the first step as easy as possible. Simply click “Apply Now” and you’ll receive a response from a compassionate member of our team within 48 hours. We’ll schedule an interview where you can share your story and get your questions answered, paving the way for a brighter future.


During your intake assessment, we’ll get to know you as an individual. We understand that everyone’s path to recovery is unique. By learning about your needs and experiences, we’ll make certain Fresh Start is a good fit.
