Although New Directions provides treatment services to both adult women and men, the programs are entirely separate. The program for women is staffed only by women. Meals, groups and lectures are also not commingled.
As is true with male participants, female participants who have children are able to have their kids spend time with them during the week and at visiting times as well. There are areas available for kids to play on the facility.
Women who are pregnant may participate in residential or outpatient treatment at New Directions and many have done so.
