The New Direction – 12-Step Recovery for High Functioning Addicts in Stressful Occupations

Providing high functioning alcoholics with the tools necessary to recover from addiction despite stressful occupations – that’s the goal of the 12-step recovery program at The New Direction of Walton, NY.

Addicts in stressful occupations need to take extra steps to prevent relapse.

Addicts in stressful occupations need to take extra steps to prevent relapse.

The New Direction is proud to offer 12-step recovery in a private setting where those working in stressful occupations can be exposed to caring and knowledgeable staff that will provide them with the tools necessary to make a full recovery from alcoholism. Located in Walton, New York, The New Direction is a private pay facility with an affordable fee structure based on 21 days of treatment. Treating primarily high functioning addicts who are involved in stressful occupations has become a specialization for The New Direction which was founded in 1977 by Matt and Margaret Batson.

The 12-step recovery program that is based on the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous makes up the foundation for treatment at the Catskill Mountain farmhouse where recovering alcoholics make the commitment to stay sober. Throughout the treatment, high functioning addicts in recovery attend daily in house group meetings that are conducted both in the morning and in the afternoon. In between group sessions, all guests at The New Direction are also provided with opportunities to work individually with a counselor.

Family members are allowed and encouraged to attend the Family program at The New Direction which is offered every Saturday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. A weekly seminar is conducted to help the family members of those in recovery to better understand the concept of alcoholism as a disease and also to introduce them to the Al-Anon Family program which provides support for the families of alcoholics or recovering alcoholics.

The New Direction has made a commitment to help high functioning addicts who are often of the corporate role and are engaged in stressful occupations. The effectiveness of the 12-step program that is provided at The New Direction is believed to be largely based on the will for the facility to remain small and cozy, built around the niche of treating high functioning addicts involved in stressful occupations, and providing a family like atmosphere. In addition to providing a beautiful and serene setting where the stress is lifted away, The New Direction also provide home-cooked meals and a supportive atmosphere that is very congruent to helping individuals overcome the stresses of everyday life and rebuild their strength while recovering from alcoholism.
