New Directions Treatment Services is a private, non-profit organization that has been in operation since 1980. Originally affiliated with Muhlenberg Hospital, NDTS is now an independent facility located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. New Directions offers outpatient substance abuse treatment and psychiatric care in tandem with medication-assisted treatment. All treatment is facilitated by Master’s-level therapists and medical staff. New Directions is a CARF accredited facility that has assisted chemically dependent individuals for over three decades.
Treatment and Staff
New Directions only accepts clients who are in need of medication-assisted treatment. Clients requiring detox must complete a program prior to enrollment. If qualified, appointments are scheduled for a bio-psycho-social assessment with treatment staff. Each client receives an individualized treatment plan tailored to their availability and must meet with an Addiction Specialist and a Physician prior to beginning Suboxone treatment. Clients attend psychotherapy in conjunction with their medication dosing, with the length of treatment dependent upon the individual and their progress through the program.
In addition to Suboxone, NDTS also prescribes Methadone, Naloxone/Vivatrol and Naltrexone. Clients wishing to either reduce their dosage or completely exit Suboxone therapy may opt for titration therapy until they are functioning independent of medication.
Clients attend on-site group and individual therapy a minimum of once per week. Therapists focus on psychoeducation, relapse prevention and stress management. Clients meet individually with a Psychiatrist and a Primary Care Physician to ensure progress and comfort during the treatment process. Family therapy is available upon request.
The clinical staff at NDTS include LPCs, Psychologists, Physicians, Addiction Specialists, CADCs and a team of Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) and Registered Nurses. Each clinical staff member utilizes their own specialties, but therapy centers around evidence-based practices. In group, individual and family therapy sessions, therapists utilize CBT and DBT techniques to inform and assist their clients during recovery. Services are offered in both English and Spanish. The facility is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm.
NDTS is a unique facility in that they provide additional outpatient services outside of medication-assisted treatment including a wellness program to help clients with their nutrition and sleep cycles. Referrals for additional services are available, including 12-step support groups and psychiatric care. Clients are strongly encouraged to create a support network with other clients and the 12-step community.
New Directions Treatment Services has three decades of experience in the treatment of severe opiate and alcohol addiction. By combining medication with group and individual therapy, clients recover in an environment that is safe and conducive to wellness. A professional and experienced staff help clients to become knowledgeable and recovery-oriented so they may begin a new life without active addiction.
