Directions is located at 1981 Cherokee Road in East Stockton. The
site, a former Bible College, provides treatment to 74 men and 20
women. Participants live in dormitories that typically house two
people per room.
With nearly 30,000 square feet of buildings and
a property site of 2.5 acres, the program provides a nurturing and
mission of New Directions is to teach men and women who have lost
control of their lives due to their addiction how to stop
substance abuse and how to lead crime free, productive and happy
In 2009, New Directions completed the renovation of an existing building in
order to increase treatment capacity by 25 clients and give the
women their own separate facility. Named in honor of our late board
member, James Larson, this
renovation was made possible through grants provided by The City of
Stockton, California and San Joaquin County, California.
