This best-selling curriculum's modular design makes it easy to customize treatment plans and target each client's specific needs. Created in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Corrections, A New Direction uses cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based practices proven to avert unhealthy thought patterns and maintain long-term success within criminal justice populations.
There is an easy-to-read corresponding participant workbook and new companion video for each of the seven modules. A separate Facilitator Guide provides direction on program implementation and administration.
Compared to untreated offenders, justice-involved clients who participated in A New Direction or a similar treatment program demonstrated:
- Reduced relapse rates
- Reduced recidivism rates
- Greater recovery meeting attendance

In addition, facilities that implemented the program saved money in jail costs. View the complete research here.
