Hear from the strong women that have recovered of the help of New Directions for Women

Samantha B.

“New Directions saved my life! Their program truly embodies a mind/body/soul approach to healing and recovery. My stay was comfortable, the facilities, group rooms and bedrooms were extremely clean, and it became my safe haven to begin healing. I am not kidding when I say the energy on campus was magical, and totally made me feel at home. The entire staff genuinely care about your well-being. Most are in recovery themselves and have experienced addiction first-hand. They’re such strong women who can empathize with what you’re going through. If you are looking to heal, make a change and start living the life you were meant to live, I highly recommend New Directions for Women.”
