Mattie Rhodes Center

Program Summary: The Nuevo Amanecer (New Dawn) program is Mattie Rhodes Center’s bilingual and bicultural substance abuse program. The primary, but not exclusive population is Spanish-speaking, Latino individuals who will benefit from a substance abuse program sensitive to their culture and language. Through our substance abuse prevention/treatment program, 80 individuals will be served with over 650 units of service. The youth and adults targeted by this program have been exposed to high rates of poverty, trauma, violence and crime. Many are already involved in/or at high-risk for involvement with the justice system (Truancy Court, Department of Corrections). Additionally, due to factors stemming from poverty, immigration status, community violence, trauma and others, many of those served by this program have co-occurring disorders and treatment needs.
