Unethical at best.
This place is completely unethical. I drank poison on campus during a bout of depression. After requesting medical help I was offered to talk to a 'Crisis Worker' on campus. When I refused and told them I needed medical attention, I was told I was breaking policy and was sent walking by the staff. No call to paramedics. No call to police. Lucky for me, a complete stranger recognized my distress from half a block away and immediately called paramedics. I am doing very well in another facility. Will not refund any money after only 2 days of so called treatment. NOT WORTHY OF CALLING THEMSELVES A TREATMENT FACILITY! http://hsapps.azdhs.gov/ls/sod/Facility.aspx?FacId=BH3591 Please note the citations for not providing staff with basic first aid training.

NEGATIVE!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Restructure management. The facility is very nice.

The staff belittled me and other residents whenever they could in front of their favorites I used everyday that I was there I refused to quit a job that I had had for 6 years to go work for a telemarketing job that they were contracted with It was the worst days of my life and useing was the only way I could cope I ended up leaving to live on the streets much better than to be put down every minute of every day

I am a recovering drug addict/alcoholic. When I entered WINR I had nowhere else to go, but jail or death. The WINR program taught me how to live a sober life and that is a miracle. I've been sober 5 year now and dreams I found I had at WINR are still coming true. I met myself right where I was and learned how tu use the tools to stay sober and live a happy life. It wasn't easy, but WINR helped make it simple and possible. If you really want to get your life back this is the place to go.

I have definitely presonally experienced the results of this orgamization. Five women that went through the program with me are still sober today. We have good jobs, healthy relationships and wonderful homes because of Women in New Recovery.

The beginning of my new life took place at WINR. Now, I have 2 1/2 years of sobriety and my life is amazing. I look at my life and 2 1/2 years ago I never would have imagined it would be like this. I give WINR credit for being a part of this! I was able to learn discipline and a new way to live because of the structure that is at WINR. I have reunited with my family and I was shown that I was worth more than the things I was doing to myself. My life that was once very dark is now light and my gratitude is extended to WINR for this. Now, I am still involved with WINR and if feels good to be apart of what they have going on!

My new life!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

They had been through the same things I had been through and so I knew I could trust what they said!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

go nationwide and touch the entire country.

Women In New Recovery changed my life. As a resident I was met with compassion and understanding, and I was given the chance to learn how to be a self-supporting, productive member of society again. Alcohol and drugs had brought me to my knees. I was 40 years old and going through each day in survival mode. WINR helped me to gain structure, responsibility, fellowship and self-esteem. Throughout this process, the staff members were supportive and encouraging. Today, I am one of those staff members. The work we do at WINR is meaningful, and gives my life purpose. On a daily basis we (staff members) help residents navigate through the difficult, sometimes seemingly impossible, hurdles of life in early sobriety. Today we are able to provide residents with individualized recovery treatment. There is a supportive Alumni base that often times work with our residents, and this let's them know they can and will recover. As the WINR program continues it's expansion, there are a broad range of services available to the resident. It is a privelege to be part of an agency that practices it's mission with each and every resident. As residents go on to reunify with their children and families, return to school, move on with their career paths, the WINR staff is rewarded with updates from our Alumni from across the nation. Imagine the impact this agency has had on the lives of so many women, their families, friends and employers.....amazing.
