I am Sarah Jones and I am a recovered addict and alcoholic. As a Windhaven Alumni, I know first-hand that our program works. Windhaven taught me the life skills and recovery tools necessary for long-term sobriety. More importantly, they helped guide me towards a relationship with God that allows me to live a happy, joyous, and purposeful life. Reflecting on the work God had done in my life while at Windhaven, I became passionate about being a part of that process for other women struggling with addiction. I first joined the Windhaven team as a house manager in 2016 and am currently working as a Recovery Advocate. In addition to my work at Windhaven, I am also a full-time student pursuing a license in chemical dependency counseling.
