The New Direction A Place of Hope for High Functioning Alcoholics

Alcohol Treatment at The New Direction Provides Addicts with Hope and a Chance to Live a Normal Life

Alcohol addiction affects every aspect of a person’s life including their reputation, family relationships and their ability to live normally. The New Direction provides addicts with a place of hope where they can learn new life-skills and gain the experience and knowledge that they need to successfully overcome alcohol addiction and live a normal life. Even high functioning alcoholic’s cannot fight this battle on their own. Success is dependent on the guidance and support as well as the educational tools and hope that is provided by The New Direction during their intensive inpatient alcohol treatment program.

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.

At The New Direction, patients attend daily group meetings and are afforded ample opportunities to get individual help from the highly trained professionals at the facility. A homey atmosphere lends itself to many addicts providing the comforts that they need to focus more heavily on their own recovery and less so on various other distractions. A patient centered approach that is founded on the premises of Alcoholic’s Anonymous and the 12-step recovery process provides high functioning alcoholic’s with the strength that they need to keep them going day after day, overcoming even the most difficult plateaus of their addiction.

The New Direction has prided itself on helping high functioning alcoholic’s, many of whom have stressful jobs, to overcome addiction while receiving the guidance, support and help that they need to foster long term recovery goals and inspirations. When it seems that alcoholism has taken control and there’s no way out, The New Direction and the specially trained staff will hold your hand and guide you through the recovery process.
