New Life Medical Addiction Services recently received full licensing and certification from the state of New Jersey allowing the medical detox facility to offer much needed addiction treatment services to some of the state’s most vulnerable citizens.

New Life Medical Addiction Services and Detox is led by Dr. Joseph Savon. Dr. Savon is certified by the American Board of Preventive Medicine in the Subspecialty of Addiction, the American Board of Addiction Medicine and the American Board of Internal Medicine in the Subspecialty of Gastroenterology and Liver Disease, has been a NJ Top Doc for the past three years and is on the Physicians Advisory Board for AmeriHealth.

Today, the disease of alcoholism and addiction accounts for approximately 158,000 deaths in the United States each year, or 432 people each day—in comparison, approximately 60,000 U.S. Soldiers perished in the Vietnam war. “We are losing the war against addiction and along with it an entire generation is disappearing” said Dr. Joseph Savon.

The issue of addiction was plastered across every major news outlet and national publication prior to the onslaught of COVID-19. “We were in a serious crisis of addiction before COVID-19 and now we continue the battle beyond all battles” said Dr. Savon.

Joblessness, homelessness, isolation, fear, anxiety, and countless other factors created by COVID-19 has drastically increased the number of sick and suffering with this fatal affliction; if not treated, the disease of addiction will continue to take lives.

COVID-19, coupled with the disease of addiction is fueling a larger-than-life epidemic. The closing of most physical outlets which those in addiction would turn to for support–churches, 12 step fellowships, therapeutic communities, and shelters, has accelerated the need and demand for more medical attention to address life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. This is where New Life comes in–to help addicts seeking to detox and begin in turn their lives around.

“Together we can beat the crisis of addiction. New Jersey has many top notch facilities and programs ideally suited to deliver care in the safest and most effective manner,” Dr. Savon said. “Our staff cares immensely and is here to help the suffering addict, alcoholic, and their loved ones during the unimaginable clash of addiction and COVID-19.”

Working with Dr. Savon is Joel Albano MSN, APN-A and Chief Administrative Officer for New Life. Mr. Albano is an Advance Practice Nurse with more than two decades of experience in the healthcare field and specializes in the treatment of substance abuse.

Supporting the leadership team is a dedicated group of licensed councilors and nurses that have devoted their lives to serving the addiction community and helping promote recovery.
