Community Service

Asparagus FestivalThe recovery from the abuse of drugs and alcohol is a lifelong process. It involves much more than learning about addiction and recovery, how to be self supporting and productive. It also involves learning how to give back and how to help others and contribute to the community.

One of the ways that clients at New Directions learn about giving is through community service. New Directions clients donate thousands of hours of time to serve other community projects in the area.

Some of the organizations that we assist during the year include: March of Dimes, Junior Aid of Stockton, Stockton Beautiful, California State University, Family Reading Program


Helping others has become a tradition at New Directions. The clients learn that they do have something to offer. They are paid with appreciation and gratitude. For some, it is the first time they have experienced the satisfaction that helping others brings.
