Areas of Specialization
Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

I was referred to Windward Way Recovery about six years ago after battling with my alcoholism and addiction for a full decade. I knew immediately that things were going to be different. I had been to Treatment several times before and never had any success. I was surrounded by young men who were my age that were very welcoming. I met the staff who were also very welcoming and I was told the truth. This truth was something I ran from for the last decade. I had been to other treatment centers that did not tell me really what to expect. I understood the I had a lot of work to do in order to overcome my addiction but that didn’t mean I wouldn’t have any fun. I utilized the therapy to the best of my ability and began working a program. I saw my life change in ways that I could never expect. I owe my new life to Windward Way and the people that work there."- James E.
Since I was in high school alcoholism and drug addiction have had complete control over my life and my family has suffered just as much as me if not more. I had tried everything from Betty Ford to AA in ratty old trailers and wasn't able to achieve the freedom and happiness that was given back to me at Windward Way Recovery. With the help of their astounding clinical staff I was able to process my past and create a phenomenal new life for myself and my family. The clinical support was incredible and provided me all the tools I needed succeed as well as the knowledge to apply them in all aspects of my life. Today I am able to be a fully functioning member of society as well as a present and loving father and son. I was introduced to an amazing sober community in Orange County which is the mecca for sober young people.- Michael C.
Having previously attempted treatment elsewhere I was initially skeptical to enroll in windward way's residential treatment program. My concerns and worries were quickly set aside upon meeting the caring and compassionate staff. My counselor and therapist were amazing. The groups provided me with a safe and healthy outlet for me and my peers to begin to address the underlying issues of my addiction. As I progressed through the program the staff assisted me in developing the major life skills that had been lacking throughout my using career. Not only did windward way assist in getting me physically sober, but they thought be how to become a man in recovery. Windward way has given me the tools to maintain long term sobriety and I am forever grateful. I feel I now have lifelong friendships and a community I can lean on should I ever need them. Years later, I know I would not have the life I have today, had it not been for the treatment provided by windward way recovery.- Brandon C.
The reason I am writing to you is our son was a client at Windward Way, and we would like to express our sincere gratitude to the many people there who helped him along his journey.Our son was everything a parent would want in a son. He is always respectful, caring and just loves his family. Unfortunately, the disease of addiction took over him. He was losing himself, and everything around him. We tried inpatient, outpatient, but coming back to the same area was failing him. He was recommended to go to Windward Way, and I thank God. Without Windward I don't know what situation we would be in today. The staff Jeremy, Jesse, Taylor and everyone at Windward Way were so instrumental in guiding our son to completing the program. Windward helped him accept and understand his addiction, and how it affected all aspects of his life. We feel so lucky that he was under your care. Many thanks to all. He is almost 2 years clean!!! I will be forever grateful to the staff at Windward.- A Proud Parent
