The New Direction

Giving the Alcoholic Person a Successful Start on the Twelve-Step Road of Recovery Since 1977

The New Direction

Alcohol Rehabilitation in New York

The New Direction was founded in 1977 by Matt and Margaret Batson under the premise that people who make a commitment to A.A. tend to stay sober. Since the doors of the Catskill Mountain farmhouse opened to recovering alcoholics in 1977, The New Direction has remained committed to the same philosophy for helping alcoholics under the twelve-step program of Alcoholics Anonymous. The New Direction provides alcoholics and individuals addicted to other drugs with a successful start on the twelve-step road of recovery.

The 21 day program includes nightly A.A. meetings, as well as in-house group sessions that are conducted both in the morning and the afternoon by staff counselors. Guests at The New Direction are required to attend the nightly A.A. Meetings and upon completion of the program they are all provided with the name and telephone number of an Alcoholics Anonymous member in their home town that they may use as a contact. Guests at The New Direction are also afforded many opportunities for individual counseling sessions throughout their stay.

The New Direction encourages family visits on Saturdays. Doors are open every Saturday from 10 a.m. Until 4 p.m. Special family seminars are offered for family members beginning at noon on Satruday. These seminars include explanations of the disease concept of alcoholism and introduction to the Al-Anon Family program which is a very beneficial program designed specifically for the families of those who are in an Alcoholics Anonymous twelve-step program.

The New Direction provides support and vigorous treatment that is focused on the Twelve Step recovery program as created by Alcoholics Anonymous in the early 1930s. The supportive and caring environment is nestled in Catskill Mountain valley on 200 acres of rolling meadows. The New Direction farmhouse is situated in a picturesque area that includes trout streams, a spring-fed pond, and a country style red barn where group meetings and activities are held.

Under the guidance of the twelve-step recovery program, The New Direction has helped hundreds of alcoholics overcome the disease and successfully recover from alcoholism. The 21 day program offered at The New Direction builds a foundation for those who suffer from alcoholism to build upon based on client needs and the twelve-step recovery process. The highly structured, educational program at The New Direction is available to alcoholics at affordable rates on a private pay basis. The fee structure is based on twenty-one days of treatment which can be extended in 7 day increments.
