Review for Avenues 12 Women's Recovery Houses, Daytona Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a donor/co-founder I have been able to witness first-hand amazing changes in our recovering women - sometimes seemingly overnight! It is common to see a new woman come in unable to make eye contact and staring at the floor because of the shame associated with this disease of addiction. Usually one or two days later, she is smiling and laughing....a new person. They find that instead of encountering unfriendly self-centered, competitive women, they are lovingly welcomed and taken under the wings of the current residents, who treat them like they were treated when they themselves entered the doors. They truly pass it on out of gratitude. They become protective and supportive of each other. This is, by far, one of the most rewarding adventures I've ever undertaken. -janet white
