- Dual Diagnosis Treatment
The New Directions Program utilizes a multidisciplinary treatment team consisting of psychiatrists, nurses, case managers, social workers, and CASAC counselors.
The integrated treatment program encourages recovery of both dependence and mental illness through daily educational and therapeutic activity groups, individual and group therapy, 12-step and relapse prevention, orientation and family/collateral involvement. An understanding of how chemical dependency and mental illness are inter-related can increase a patient’s chances for a sustained recovery. Medication monitoring, relaxation training, solution-focused approaches and spirituality combined with a competently trained staff reinforce the recovery process.
The average length of stay is 4 days for detoxification and 28 days for rehabilitation. Patients must be 18 years of age or older. Most major insurance, including Medicaid and Medicare, is accepted. For intake screening, call 845.858.7234.
The New Directions Program is dually licensed by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse for inpatient detoxification and rehabilitation services. All of Bon Secours Community Hospital’s behavioral health services are accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).
The New Directions Program is a no smoking environment. We permit visitors according to the psychiatrist’s orders and unit program schedule.
