Mission Statement

New Directions' mission is to provide veterans the tools they need to increase their marketable skills, an environment where they can strengthen their personal and social skills, and the opportunities to test these skills in real world working and living situations while maintaining a focus on the health and well-being of the individual. This is accomplished through a combination of drug and alcohol rehabilitation, supportive transitional housing and job training.

Description

New Directions, a long-term drug and alcohol treatment program founded by three formerly homeless veterans, has provided food, shelter, and rehabilitation services since 1992.

New Directions' "Therapeutic Community" emphasizes honesty, work ethic, skill-learning, personal accountability, economic self-reliance, family responsibility, community involvement, and good citizenship. Sobriety, long-term recovery, and employment are the basis for client stability and permanent housing.

The organization offers a comprehensive set of services, including: substance abuse rehabilitation, theraputic counseling, remedial education, vocational assessment and training, legal services, housing placement assistance and aftercare services.
