I came to Windward Way almost 45 days ago. I came from a City in Indiana not knowing anything about this place, but the support I received from admissions was amazing. I was completely scared feeling alone and the minute I arrived the intake staff was just as amazing as admissions. I was beyond scared walking into the detox house, but with the support around me from ALL the staff and the “Bonus Friends” I made. I encourage anyone reading this take that chance and make the call. You will not regret it!!! I am about to go home and I am feeling confident and ready with all the tools and coping skills I was provided. Good luck to you if you make that call.

This was an amazing experience. I have learned so much about my addiction and mental health throughout my 45 days in their recovery program. The staff is extremely friendly and vey knowledgeable. I have never felt alone as someone was always available to help me if needed. This was a great experience getting sober and they gave me the tools to continue recovery after I went home. They made me very comfortable in the leaving process. I have found many people that I treat and am treated as family. They helped me set up any of my needs for after care.

Windward Way recovery is a great place to recover. They have great case managers and therapist. I was able to receive such a wonderful experience as I was supported and cared for in my journey. From the admissions, clinical and discharge staff I was able to build a platform that laid out a foundation that set me up for success. It was up to me to follow through and I'm forever grateful as I'm able to live a sober life today. Windward was a great experience and I would suggest anyone who is searching for quality care to give them a call.

I’ve been to treatment before and by far, this was the best experience I ever had. All the staff were constantly there to support and help you through any and all obstacles. The treatment program is unique and rewarding. Goes so far beyond just groups and therapy, teaches you by doing when it comes to re-entry into community setting. Windward Way truly saved my life. I will forever be in their debt! Thank you.

Chad is the absolute best group facilitator, all staff are great. Patrick Frankie and Dylan are awesome guys to know. Alec is one of the most knowledgeable guys I know when it comes to the big book. I really did enjoy my time with the clients who I now consider my brothers. I recommend this to anyone who is serious about getting clean and living an honest fun life. You have to want sobriety though, they can’t force you to be sober. So if you’re ready to be then windward is top of my list.
