New Directions taught me the skills I needed to love myself and to love my children. Thank you New Directions. My children thank you too!!! Mommy is back!!
I had been in two different treatment programs before, and I did not want to be at New Directions, my third. I was so depressed and so sad but they made me laugh through my tears. My experience with the staff was nothing but professional, and so much more personal than I ever had before. I came out feeling like I was valuable, that I had something to offer...It was in all senses a new beginning for me. My experience at New Directions for Women was extremely positive.
I came here really broken. I got built back up, literally. I was a brat; I thought I was a princess. They taught me everything, including humility. That was a big part of my growth. New Directions is so special. It saved my life.
I don't know if I would be alive without New Directions' help in 1996. New Directions was there when I needed them. I have a life beyond my dreams. And, if I continue to practice what New Directions taught me, I can stay clean all my life one day at a time.
When I came to New Directions in January of 1997, I had no idea what was in store for me. I had just gotten out of jail after serving a two month sentence for my second DUI. I agreed to try it out for a couple of weeks. Two weeks turned into six months. After being there awhile, I was able to see how much alcohol played a role in my life and I learned the tools I needed to take on life as a sober woman. It has been quite a journey and I am extremely grateful to New Directions.
New Directions is the only treatment program I have attended (I was here twice). At New Directions, I was safe and in a caring environment with all the staff. I let my walls down and took great advantage of the services they had in the program. I received full attention when I spoke and my needs were always met.
I arrived at New Directions for Women a scared, lost and broken woman. I spent six months in treatment and have found myself. I actually can look in the mirror and like what I see. New Directions has given me the confidence and tools to live a sober life. I have formed friendships with other women that I know will last a lifetime.
New Directions gave me the time and the freedom to concentrate on me, something I hadn't done in over fifty years. I built an understanding of my disease and a foundation to carry forward in my recovery. The support of my family, the staff and women of New Directions enabled me to see how blessed I am and that has left me eternally grateful.
I want to express my sincere thanks to New Directions for Women. Without the help and care I received during and after my treatment, I know I wouldn't have been able to maintain my sobriety. The Therapists and staff at New Directions have one thing in mind, to see their patients succeed. When I came in I was a complete mess, with no goals and a complete lack of ambition. Now I am very happy to be starting college just two weeks after completing the program.
I am a wife, mother, friend and productive human being in society. I thank God for New Directions every day.
