The New Direction operates in a beautiful turn of the century farmhouse nestled in a picturesque Catskill Mountain valley. Its charm is accented by a huge red barn, 200 acres of rolling meadows, trout streams and a lovely spring-fed pond; ideal for swimming in the summer and skating in the winter. Inside the house is a bright cheery atmosphere of love and understanding, superb food and comfortable surroundings intended to make our guests’ stay a memorable one. More . . .

Our mission at The New Direction is to help men and women who are experiencing addiction to various substances, including alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and prescription drugs. The recent epidemic of opiate based drugs, including Oxycontin, Vicodin, and Percocets, has afflicted people of all ages and backgrounds, including young people who are often most vulnerable to peer pressure to begin the use of these drugs.

Guests attend daily in-house group sessions conducted both mornings and afternoons by our staff counselors, each session lasting approximately two hours. Guests are also afforded ample opportunities for individual counseling sessions during their stay.
Because we each feel it is vitally important to include family members of the alcoholic/addict in our program, we encourage visits by family members.
