DIRECTION BEHAVIORAL HEALTH ASSOCIATES
Direction is a diverse team of clinicians dedicated to bringing excellent, innovative mental health care to adolescents.
Since 2008, we have served over 3000 adolescents and their families.
Our Intensive Outpatient Program provide an alternative, intermediate level of care. Many adolescents have more acute needs than can be met on an traditional outpatient basis, but do not require inpatient hospitalization. Direction’s programming is designed to meet those needs.
Direction takes a generalist approach. There are no “exclusionary” diagnoses, and, from our point of view, no problem is too big or too small. We have successfully treated adolescents with virtually every type of mental health and substance abuse problem you can imagine.
DIRECTION IS CURRENTLY OPERATING IN-PERSON 4 DAYS PER WEEK
ON WEDNESDAYS, WE OFFER A VIRTUAL DAY FOR CHILDREN AND VIRTUAL PARENTING GROUPS
WED 101 LECTURE SERIES
Victoria is putting together a lecture series getting into the theory and practice of WED. Videos will be added as they are created. You can view them at our sister site, the Art of Direction (www.aofdirection.com).
DIRECTION HAS MOVED!
After 13 years operating at 5 Pine Street Extension, Direction has moved to a different site at 25 Technology Way, Suite 3W1, Nashua. It is only a quarter mile from our current site, but you can trust that it is a major upgrade. We look forward to seeing you there.
SAD NEWS FOR THE DIRECTION COMMUNITY
It is with great sadness that we received the news of Joe Walsh’s passing on October 25th, 2020, after a long battle with illness. As anyone could attest to who met the man, Joe was a one-of-a-kind individual. He was many things to our institution: Direction's cofounder and Program Director, a superb clinician, and the original WED Educator. He was more to us who knew him best: he was our beloved colleague, mentor, student, and — most of all — friend. We will miss him.
Joe’s wife, Lindsay Goldstein, has set up the Joe Walsh Memorial Fund, the proceeds of which will be used to further Joe’s ambitious clinical and educational vision to help children and families in need. If you would like information as to how to make a donation, please contact us.
