    Our Addiction Treatment Programs​

    For some women, learning to live without drugs or alcohol needn’t take 28 days or more away from work, family, or school. Others who have completed a residential stay want a continuum of care that continues to meet their needs as they reintegrate into their homes and communities. That’s why we offer a treatment program you can attend in the evenings!

    The Evening Intensive Outpatient Program combines several therapeutic components scheduled each night for 16 consecutive weeks. It is based on the evidence-based Matrix Model, which recognizes the diversity and individuality of each patient’s stage in recovery.

    The program emphasizes recovery skills, relapse prevention, family involvement, individual therapy, and 12-step involvement. Patients may enter the program at any stage as the model accommodates people in various stages of early recovery.

    Admission criteria

    Women 18 and over with primary diagnosis of chemical dependency

    At New Directions for Women, we are committed to providing exceptional treatment services that meet physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each woman and her family suffering from the disease of chemical dependency. Therefore, we tailor each treatment plan to the individual woman and her family being treated, and emphasize responsible recovery for long-term sobriety. By addressing the holistic needs of every aspect of our patients’ lives, including, spiritual, emotional, physical, social and intellectual, we facilitate their journey in recovery, encouraging them to rejoin their communities as healthy, whole women and families.

    Our program provides successive levels of residential care from Primary Phase to Extended Phase services. Average length of stay at NDFW is 90 days. Minimum commitment of 30 days required. Length of stay may reach up to 1 year.

    The following information is applicable for single women, pregnant women and women who enter treatment with their children:

    Primary Phase

    Our Primary Phase program is highly structured and provides intensive therapy utilizing individual, family, group and educational counseling. Each woman is assigned a Masters Level Primary Therapist or a Certified Addiction Counselor with whom they create an individualized treatment plan. In addition, we provide equine therapy with horses, art expression, gardening, psychodrama, experiential and spiritual therapies (see Services Offered). Our Primary Phase program is an average length of stay of 30 days.

    Transitional Phase

    Our women and their families are then allowed to move into a Transitional Phase program that provides more autonomy while still engaging them with all the services provided during the Primary Phase. Women in this phase begin to practice the tools of their recovery in the community while in school, working or volunteering. In the evening, our women return to the safety of their recovery community here at NDFW and focus their abilities to apply their program in daily life. Each woman is encouraged to develop healthy, meaningful relationships with sponsors, alumni, and other women in recovery. In addition, each woman works individually with her assigned Case Manager and develops an individual plan that encompasses her goals in life regarding education, employment, living arrangements, children, family, self-care etc. Average length of stay in Transitional Phase is 45 days.

    Extended Care Phase

    Lastly, women and their families may move into Extended Care Phase. This is our lowest level of Residential care due to the amount of independence each woman has earned. During this phase of treatment, each woman continues to receive individual, family and group counseling. Additionally, they further practice the tools of their recovery in the community.

    New Direction’s Intensive Sober Living Program combines transitional sober living with continued treatment services. This helps women transition to a sober lifestyle after completing primary or extended treatment.

    Where should women go after primary treatment?

    Located at New Direction’s campus to provide a structured living environment, the Intensive Sober Living Program includes intensive outpatient services based on the Matrix Model. (This is a research and an evidence-based approach that recognizes the diversity and individuality of each patient’s stage in recovery).

    The program focuses on early recovery skills, relapse prevention, family involvement, individual therapy and 12 step involvement. Patients may enter the program at any stage as the model accommodates for people in various stages of early recovery.

    Patients receive seven to ten hours of treatment weekly and are involved in 12-Step programs while they work, go to school or are involved in other productive activities.
