All services provided by the Brooklyn Center are available in both English and Spanish.  Our staff consists of psychiatrists, psychologists, registered nurses, social workers and mental health counselors who are dedicated to providing a safe, comfortable and confidential treatment experience.

New Directions Alcohol and Substance Abuse Treatment Program

New Directions, an out-patient chemical dependency treatment program located in the historic Park Slope section of Brooklyn, has developed an integrated clinical approach to treatment that focuses on the chemically dependent individual and their immediate social environment.  This approach helps individuals to recognize and change their maladaptive behavior, to understand life stressors as they affect chemical dependence, and to develop better coping mechanisms.  It also impacts on the individual’s social support system, promoting more constructive reinforcement of sobriety through a focus on the family and social network.  This dual approach serves to encourage and enable the chemically dependent individual to truly seek “new directions” in order to develop a more positive lifestyle.

All services provided by New Directions are offered in English and Spanish.  Our staff consists of physicians, psychologists, social workers, certified alcohol and substance abuse counselors and creative arts therapists who use a multi-disciplinary approach to meet the needs of each client.
