  • Criminal Justice Services
    The primary goal of the Criminal Justice Services offered at New Directions is to facilitate the re-integration of clients with criminal justice issues into society by changing negative attitudes and behaviors that could lead to re-engagement in criminal activity.  We strive to have close working relationships with the NYS Department of Parole and Probation, NYC Criminal Courts, Brooklyn Treatment Courts, and the Department of Juvenile Justice.

    As our clients achieve abstinence, they are encouraged to improve social functioning, strengthen family relationships, and seek employment.  Our aim is to help our clients take their place as independent and productive members of society, free from the addictons of chemical dependence and criminal behavior.

    Along with weekly individual and group counseling, specialized services include:
    • Supervised Urinalysis & Breathalyzer Screening
    • Anger Management 
    • Domestic Violence, HIV/AIDS, Parenting Skills & Other Educational Counseling Workshops
  • Acupuncture Therapy
    Acupuncture helps to reduce symptoms and aids in long term recovery of those with substance abuse problems.  Acupuncture does not cure alcoholism or drug addiction.  It helps alleviate symptoms so that mental and physical stability are achieved as soon as possible, allowing productive involvement in counseling, twelve-step programs and other support systems as necessary for maintaining sobriety.  Acupuncture is most effective when it is part of an overall treatment plan which includes a clinical structure tailored to the needs of the individual with the abuse problem.   Acupuncture is performed by a licensed acupuncturist. 
  • Art Therapy
    Many people seeking recovery from addictions struggle to find the words to speak about their feelings.  The creative arts create a bridge from action to discussion.  Many of the creative arts groups result in a product that can be revisited throughout treatment reflecting change and recording the road to recovery.
