The goal at Windhaven House is to assist women in becoming healthy and autonomous. We achieve this goal through our phase system, which is uniquely designed to help residents meet goals for both personal growth and independent living skills within addiction recovery. Though the first phase is very restrictive, to provide the maximum amount of accountability and support, each phase following introduces a higher level of freedom and responsibility. To progress through the phases, a resident must submit a written request to staffing. In addition to the requirements for each phase, residents must be in compliance with all house rules and program requirements in order to be eligible for a higher phase.
Upon entering Windhaven House, residents will be placed on Phase 1. This is non-negotiable; regardless of length of sobriety, or even if they have formerly been residents. Minimum stay in Phase I is 30 days. Windhaven House utilizes the services of Windhaven Counseling Center. No parent or family contact allowed for the first two weeks.
