I went through Windward Way about a year and a half ago. I came into this fantastic treatment center detoxing from amphetamines and opiates, and as uncomfortable and broken as I was, I was grateful to be in a place as thorough and equipped as this treatment center. From the get go, I noticed that staff were both capable and empathetic towards myself and other clients. I found a great appreciation for this program through staff and clinicians who I could relate to because of their own struggles with addiction and their subsequent recovery from it. More than anything, Windward Way helped me see that there was hope for me and that I could lay down the groundwork for a healthier, more fulfilling life by maintaining self awareness and consistency.
Windward Way also introduced me to 12 Step Programs, which I had never been involved in before. Staff were all very knowledgeable of AA/NA and led by example, compelling me to stay involved after treatment had been completed. This introduction to 12 step programs, paired with the group sessions, therapy and support of staff helped me find hope and self love. They all did a great job of positioning the severity of my situation, with an uplifting message
The facilities here are great. The upkeep of the properties is top notch and well maintained. All of us were well provided for with resources and aid to help us deal with legal and medical issues. Staff, clinicians and doctors made themselves readily available, which made me feel comfortable and cared for.
The regular outings once a week definitely helped us get out of our heads. It was a time to relax and have some fun, which I believe was important to the experience.
Windward Way most definitely has allowed me to change for the better, and I am forever grateful.
