Inmates and former inmates "not actors" discuss what they did to safeguard their sobriety after either reintegration into general population or release from incarceration. As one former inmate explains in the video, "The time and energy we once wasted on our addiction is now available for developing our talents and skills." Offering straightforward and helpful advice, the inmates and former inmates in this video talk about their experiences in four critical areas:
- finding a place to live
- searching for a job
- figuring out how to handle spare time
- discovering who to turn to for support
Taped in Minnesota correctional facilities, A New Direction video series allows real inmates to tell the real story about recovering from a life of addiction and crime. The result is a powerful, direct, and liberating message about finding a life of recovery and freedom. A New Direction is Hazelden's comprehensive cognitive-behavioral therapy curriculum for addicted offenders.
