NUWAY® continues to adapt our response to the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure client and staff safety. Effective Monday, March 23, NUWAY will temporarily deliver its intensive-outpatient programming via telehealth services. This model will help bridge access barriers until the pandemic concerns have diminished. Appropriate accommodations, in compliance with CDC and WHO guidelines, will be made for any clients who cannot access telehealth services or need to be seen in person for any reason.

NUWAY continues to accept new referrals and clients into ALL programs, including Cochran Recovery Services. Referrals to any of NUWAY’s programs can be made, as usual, by contacting the location directly via a phone call, fax or email. If you have questions about how admissions to intensive-outpatient programming will occur, please contact the program directly. Contact information for each program is listed at the end of this document.

NUWAY will continue to screen all potential residential admits for exposure to COVID-19 and we will not admit anyone that has potentially been exposed or displaying symptoms. Anyone that is unable to admit for these circumstances are referred to local healthcare providers for additional screening or testing. NUWAY will continue to rigorously sanitize our facilities, promote hand hygiene protocols, utilize social/physical distancing and actively monitor and screen clients and staff’s health.

NUWAY’s pertinent updates/information related to COVID – 19 will continue to be communicated on the homepage of the NUWAY website (, via social media channels (NUWAY Facebook and LinkedIn) and through public communication distribution channels.
