We created our list of care partners around the belief that inpatient treatment is only the beginning of recovery. New Directions for Women is choosing to join with care partners that provide services and expertise in areas that will enhance the recovery of our patients and their families. An initiative that focuses on the treatment and recovery process from inpatient to aftercare, care partner representatives, work conjointly with aftercare providers in the community to assist New Directions for Women patients upon their discharge of the continuum of care.
Our care partner network include: monitoring programs, family programs, private practice psychologists and clinicians, licensed social workers, outpatient facilities, psychiatrists, psychiatric hospitals, and community based programs.
Women suffering from chemical dependency are plagued with tremendous shame and guilt. This often keeps them from asking for or seeking the help they so desperately need. We can help you or someone you love get into treatment. If the one you love is hesitant about asking for help, Family Intervention may be your answer. New Directions for Women’s staff are educated in three models of intervention: Arise, Johnson, and Systemic. These are three methods of lovingly encouraging your loved one to seek treatment for their chemical dependency. New Directions for Women utilizes trained professional interventionists for these services.
