In 20 years of active addiction I've been in and out of a plethora of recovery centers. Windward Way definitely made the most impact. I'm not the same person I was going in; the comradery amongst fellow clients with the knowledge and compassion gave me the strength I needed to make a change !
I was hesitant to go into inpatient treatment, but boy was I wrong to worry. To a person everyone working at The House is earnestly invested and involved in helping clients recover. Sure I had some staff who I had friction with, but I always felt my recovery took precedence over personality differences. Bedding and infrastructure is a bit handed down and scuffed up, but everything is clean, as are the public and shared personal spaces. I did not have one bad meal in 2 months- NOT ONE !!! Amaaazing Latin American home cooked food that was healthy and tasted really really good. Alameda county decided I didn’t need 90 days and clients told me they could hear my counselor fighting for me to get a full program. That moved me- that I wasn’t just another meatbag to them, even if I am to the government…I give El Chante TEN out of five STARS !!!
I don't know if there are enough words that really convey the amount of help I've received thanks to the team here at Hills. I know I have the ability to stay clean this time and I can thrive because of their help. Before their help, it felt like an endless loop of clean, heal, stumble, relapse. After Hills I can say I've been clean and sober for years.
