I went to Windward Way Recovery back in September of last year my experience there was incredibly positive. The program is a good introduction to the 12 steps. What I felt left the most impact on me was the staff. The therapists, counselors we're great and insightful. The support staff is who you spend the most time with. Specifically the staff at the Victoria property during that time were all prime, leading examples of the program. They gave me the hope I needed, to believe, I could fix my life through the steps. They were also honest with me and, did not sugarcoat the answers to the questions I asked. Which I appreciated. I highly recommend this rehab to anyone this place saved my life!

Windward Way saved my life. I spent 2 months in residential and 4 months in IOP by choice. I gained tons of tools to live successfully in sobriety. Every week I spoke to a case manager and received therapy where I could address any issue I have and was provided legitimate solution. I’m still sober today, I have 7.5 months sober, and owe it all to Windward Way!!!

Super grateful to have had the opportunity to go through treatment here. This program gave me the foundation I needed to get sober and stay sober this time around. The clinical team was very personable, and helped me work through issues that I had kept bottled down for a long time. The staff on the operation side of Windward Way was phenomenal, and were always there when a clinician could not be. Windward introduced me to Alcoholics Anonymous in which I still do daily to this day. If you need treatment, I highly recommend Windward Way Recovery.

I recently had an opportunity to help a dear friend's family member get to Windward Way. Since the beginning, we have been treated professionally, and with courtesy. Anthony Saracino was particularly helpful during this time of crisis, and went out of his way to answer questions, and make sure that everyone felt involved and a part of this very important and emotional process. We are all very grateful.

I had an experience that i will never ever forget. My eyes were open to so many things that i did not realize. I know have a large amount of tools i can use to remain sober, and have made life long friends not only with clients but some of the staff as well. i really felt like i was in good hands here at windward i felt safe and had a sense of importance from clinical and support staff.

My experience at Windward Way was phenomenal. Everyone including support staff, counselors, therapists, physicians and people in administration were very supportive and helpful in my recovery. The facility as a whole cares about each person and their well being, health, safety and most of all their recovery. I recommend Windward Way to anyone who needs help with addiction and truly deserves a second chance at a happy and sober/clean life...
