Only the best alcohol treatment centers will provide a range of individual, group and family counseling that is intensive and invasive enough to help a high functioning alcoholic overcome the psychological effects of alcoholism. The degree to which a patient is addicted to alcohol must be considered as must any pertinent family or social issues, work related issues and various other socioeconomic factors when developing an effective alcohol treatment plan.

The New Direction is committed to bringing out the best in each and every guest that stays at the Catskill Mountain farmhouse to receive treatment for alcohol addiction. Providing guests with hope and support along the way to assure that even the most alcohol dependent individuals have a chance at making a successful recovery and changing the current direction of their life.
