Women In New Recovery
May 27, 2010
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.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
