Transforming lives one day at-a-time in a healthy, safe and trusted environment
At New Directions for Women, women can get the help they need to address co-occurring disorders with our specialized dual diagnosis treatment facility.
Trauma-informed care is a strengths-based, trauma-sensitive approach that recognizes the impact of trauma on an individual’s life. This method responds in a way that is respectful of the individual’s experiences. We recognize that our patients have survived trauma and can heal and thrive.
New Directions for Women provides support and treatment services in a safe and healthy gender-specific environment.
New Directions for Women Foundation was created in 1977. Every woman and child who comes through our doors receives some amount of scholarship funds. Our aim is to raise $500,000 a year, which goes directly to the Pamela Wilder Scholarship Fund. On behalf of the staff, patients, and alumni of New Directions for Women, we are honored to have your support as we continue our 37th year of excellent treatment.

She is trained in both Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which serve the needs of our patients, many of whom have experienced both complex trauma and substance use disorder.

Knowledge is Power
Hear from the strong women that have recovered of the help of New Directions for Women
“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.”
