Philosophy

The New Direction is a Guest House for the alcoholic/addict.

The New Direction provides the high-functioning alcoholic/addict with the tools necessary for recovery by exposure to knowledgeable and caring persons. It offers a supportive, yet vigorous education, firmly focused on the Twelve Step recovery approach, using the tenets of the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

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. We do allow smoking in designated areas throughout the property.

Our valued reputation has always been based on the client’s needs. As a private pay facility, our current fee structure is $5,900 for twenty-one days. Additional weeks (7 days) are $1,600.
