Participants are involved in the treatment program every day. Consequently, there is no "drop in" visiting. At the time of enrollment, new participants inform New Directions staff as to whom they wish to have included on their visitors list. Only guests the participant has listed will be permitted to visit and participate in the weekly family program.
Visiting is available every Saturday afternoon as well as some holidays.
In order to visit on Saturday, family/friends who wish to visit must participate in Family Group one evening each week. As there are multiple groups, the specific evening will be determined upon entrance to New Directions.
Family group, which also allows for visiting, provides information, support and tools for family and friends to help better understand the substance use disorder the participant has and is experiencing. Attendance to Family Group one evening each week is required in order to attend Saturday afternoon visiting.
