Reduced relapse rates. Reduced recidivism rates. Greater recovery meeting attendance. Healthier thought patterns.

Justice-involved clients deserve the opportunity to experience all of this and more. And with A New Direction, their chances of overcoming substance use disorder, finding success in recovery and effectively re-entering society are significantly increased.

I've purchased A New Direction. Why do we need specific training?
When implemented effectively, A New Direction has the power to change the outcomes for justice-involved clients. The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), Division of Behavioral Health, found that six months after entering a treatment program that implemented A New Direction:

  • 95.7% of the successfully discharged clients (completed the entire program) were abstinent
  • 97.9% had not been arrested
  • 53.2% were working full- or part-time
  • 95.9% said they felt that the jail-based treatment program was either very beneficial or beneficial overall

During our A New Direction training, our expert trainer will walk participants through this comprehensive cognitive-behavioral therapy treatment program, giving your staff the greatest opportunity to deliver targeted treatment that enables a participant to recognize and overcome criminal and addictive thinking.

Training Objectives
During this two-day workshop, the trainer will:

  • Describe the principles of using a CBT-based curriculum focused on substance use and criminality and the integration of developing a therapeutic community
  • Teach skills to implement and deliver A New Direction to justice-involved clients who have substance use or co-occurring disorders
  • Provide interactive scenarios with in-the-moment feedback from an experienced trainer
  • Deliver expertise to help you develop program-level implementation plans
