Treatment for Women: Finding the Courage to Recover
The New Directions for Women treatment approach is grounded in the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Our full continuum of care includes our onsite detox, residential rehab, partial day program (PDP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), intensive sober living (ISL), and general outpatient services, such as individual and group sessions. Our model includes a multifaceted social approach to the treatment of substance use disorder. Being a women’s only addiction treatment program, we provide gender separate, culturally relevant and holistic addiction treatment services that meet the special needs of women, women with children, pregnant women in any trimester, and their families that suffer from the chronic fatal disease of addiction. Alcohol and drug dependency is typically coupled with other co-occurring disorders such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and other mental health issues.
Our multi-disciplined Treatment Team, comprised of Master’s Level Licensed Therapists and fully Certified Addiction Counselors, is passionate about providing comprehensive, individualized care with a recommended length of stay of 90 plus days. Research consistently shows that the longer a woman is in treatment to secure her foundation in recovery, the better outcome she will have for lasting abstinence and living a life beyond her wildest dreams. Here is a sample program schedule.
Our holistic approach offers a variety of services, including yoga, acupuncture, psychodrama, equine therapy, mindfulness meditation, physical exercise, art, gardening, and many varieties of experiential therapy. With over 40 years of experience in successfully treating women and their families we have found that women recovering among women, dealing specifically with issues such as relationships, child care, and self esteem and body image in gender specific groups, has a profound effect on the recovery process.
Chronic alcohol and/or drug use takes a heavier physical toll on women than on men. The related medical problems such as brain, heart, and liver damage progress more rapidly in women than in men as stated by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and thus the sooner you or your loved one get help, the better.
