  • New Directions helps patients to initiate and maintain recovery from drugs and alcohol by offering a residential treatment program which is widely recognized as an effective alternative to incarceration

Research has shown that reduction in recidivism rates increase the likelihood that the client will remain sober and out the justice system when the treatment is presented as an alternative to incarceration as well as provides the following:

  • Continuity of the family dyad by keeping the family intact allowing the children to reside with the mother
  • Accountability with substance treatment compliance
  • Increased communication between treatment center and the court
