Tate Short is NewDay’s Residential Director. As the Residential Director, Tate provides leadership for the fellowship team and acts as a mentor and spiritual leader for NewDay clients. Tate’s responsibilities include welcoming NewDay clients, walking clients through every step of their stay at NewDay, and serving them by providing a God-centered, structured, and safe environment to heal.
Before NewDay, Tate worked for AT&T as linemen and technician, at the Wheeler Men’s Residential Center as a Guest Services Coordinator, and at the Midwest Food Bank as the Warehouse Manager. Tate is currently the Director of Spiritual Development for Alpha Omega Elevation and is in the process of becoming a Christian Counselor through the Rod and Staff Ministries.
While Tate’s many experiences qualify him to work for NewDay, no experience prepared him more than joining the recovery program Saul to Paul as a result of his own sin and addiction issues. Tate completed the program in 2014 and fell in love with Jesus as a result. Over time, it became clear to Tate that using God’s Word and his own testimony to help men overcome addiction is what he wants to do with his life.
Tate became aware of NewDay through Dr. Dee Bonney, who is the current Medical Director at NewDay and the owner of Alpha Omega Elevation. Through Dr. Dee Bonney, Tate met Dan Johnson, the Founder of NewDay, and Tate became interested in a career with NewDay.
“There is no feeling greater than to be in God’s will, to know that I have a purpose, and to know that what we do at NewDay affects families and friends for eternity! It happened to me and I get to do that for someone else. That is why I love working at NewDay.” – Tate Short
Adam Allman is NewDay’s Clinical Director. Adam graduated from Cincinnati Bible College and Seminary with an undergraduate degree in Christian Education in 1999 and a Master of Arts degree in Counseling in 2004. Adam is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor, which makes him well-suited for his role at NewDay.
Before working at NewDay, Adam worked at the St. Vincent Stress Center, the Indianapolis Treatment Center, and the East Indiana Treatment Center. At each job, Adam helped people who were ensnared by addiction to become free from their addiction and helped direct them to a path of mental, emotional, and spiritual healing.
Adam has experience providing clinical supervision and direct client care with various levels of opportunities including inpatient detoxification, Partial Hospitalization Programming, Intensive Outpatient Programming, family counseling, and individual counseling.
Adam believes that the physical component of treatment is often what leads an individual to get help, and he also believes that connecting the individual to God is what will lead to sustained healing from addiction’s grip. Adam strives to provide a judgment-free, safe, and supportive environment that will enable individuals to battle their addiction and life challenges with dignity and grace.
Dan Johnson is the Founder of NewDay. Before working at NewDay, Dan graduated from Faith Baptist seminary with a Masters of Arts in Theology and began his career as a minister.
While serving as the Senior Pastor of a large church in Indiana, a family approached Dan about their struggle with their son, who was addicted to heroin. Though the family would try to help their son, several previous attempts to help him failed. This began Dan’s journey of learning about addiction.
Before long, Dan began to receive calls from other families with similar stories and challenges. Over time, Dan developed a process he referred to as “recovery coaching” that included a segment for both those struggling with the addiction and their families. In time, not only did many more families reach out to Dan for help, but so did ministers seeking his advice and knowledge to better understand how to help families in their congregations. This is how NewDay was birthed.
Shortly after beginning NewDay, Dan sensed the need to bring together the best professional services with the faith-based components he developed. As a result, NewDay developed the vision to become a licensed and accredited organization that offers professional addiction treatment, medical services, and spiritual coaching.
Today, Dan serves at NewDay by coaching the team of qualified professionals, telling NewDay’s story, teaching pastors and other leaders about addiction treatment, and interacting as often as possible with individuals beginning their journey of recovery.
Jenny is one of NewDay’s therapists. As a NewDay therapist, Jenny leads the Intensive Outpatient Program at one of their partner organizations – Shepherd Community Center.
Prior to joining the NewDay team, Jenny earned a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Counseling for Addictions from Indiana Wesleyan University. Before obtaining her master’s degree, she gained experience at St. Vincent Stress Center, Life Recovery Center, and The Willow Center. Jenny is currently a member of the NAADAC (National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors).
Many life experiences prepared Jenny to work at NewDay. As addiction plagued her family and friends, Jenny sought individual counseling and started attending a support group, which led to a great understanding, empathy, and compassion for both the addicted loved one and their family members.
Throughout her journey, Jenny’s relationship and understanding of God deepened and she desired to tangibly help others through her career. That’s when Jenny pursued a biblical counseling certification, and later, a master’s degree. Since then, Jenny started facilitating support groups for women and helped many with behavioral addictions as well as substance abuse issues.
When Jenny was looking for a faith-based job, she heard about NewDay, and it was the perfect fit! Jenny enjoys working at NewDay for many reasons, one reason being that, by using biblical principles and an evidence-based curriculum, each client gets specific and unique help.
Jenny is encouraged to see that the staff are supportive, challenge clients when needed, and strive to speak the truth in love.
Dr. Dee Bonney is the Medical Director at NewDay. As the Medical Director at NewDay, Dee is responsible for supervising the medical care that is provided to clients in both residential and outpatient settings, developing medical protocols, and providing one-on-one care for patients.
Dee received his Bachelor of Arts in biology and his Medical Doctor degree from Indiana University. After receiving his Medical Doctor degree, Dee completed his residency training in emergency medicine and pediatrics at Indiana University. Dee is board certified by the American Board of Emergency Medicine.
For 18 years, before joining the NewDay team, Dee worked in the emergency department of various hospitals in areas ranging from critical access facilities to level I trauma centers. He also served as Medical Director of Emergency Departments. Additionally, Dee is the owner and director of a faith-based addiction treatment office.
Dee’s experience caring for patients in emergency departments, many of whom struggle with substance-use disorder, coupled with his administrative experience leading teams of physicians and advanced practice providers, positioned Dee to coordinate care for his faith-based addiction treatment center.
When Dee’s faith-based addiction treatment office was featured in the Indianapolis Star, Dan Johnson, Founder of NewDay, reached out to Dee. Dee and Dan’s similar approach to addiction treatment and recovery lead, naturally, to collaboration.
“I love seeing the changes that happen when we walk with a client through the process of healing from their addiction. When someone realizes the love Jesus has for them, and that His love is not dependent on their past decisions, they start to understand the power of the gospel to transform their lives.” – Dr. Dee Bonney
Kevin Mangin is the President at NewDay. He graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Public and Environmental Management. As the President of NewDay, Kevin is responsible for all aspects of the business and primarily focuses on strategy and growth.
Before working at NewDay, Kevin spent 25 years in the contracting and manufacturing business where he owned and lead several companies. Kevin’s experience of owning and leading several companies prepared him to lead the business side of NewDay.
Beyond his professional experience, Kevin’s personal experiences of walking family members and friends through their addiction story gave him great empathy and hope for people in recovery and prepared him for work at NewDay.
Just as Kevin started searching for an opportunity where ministry intersected entrepreneurism, he met NewDay’s Founder, Dan Johnson, and he found NewDay. Having walked alongside several people he loved as they recovered, Kevin saw the unique value of combining faith with medically assisted treatment to help others recover.
Kevin loves working at NewDay for the mission and the people. At NewDay, he gets to be a part of a like-minded team with one focus: renewing hope and restoring health to those battling addiction. He gets to do this with amazing people who have a heart for those in recovery, their families, and a population that is largely marginalized due to their addiction.
