Review by Contributors


Located in Wichita, Kan., Atishwin Institute is a communal sober living environment for adults struggling with alcoholism or a drug addiction. According to the center’s website, Atishwin is the Chumash Indian word for dream helper. Detox services are not available here.


Information on Atishwin's treatment approach is limited. During their stay at Atishwin, sober living residents attend one house meeting and a minimum of two 12-step meetings each week, both of which are mandatory. Clients are required to keep their living spaces neat and complete their assigned chores daily. It is among the 65 percent of Kansas facilities to incorporate the 12-steps into treatment.


There is currently no information provided by Atishwin regarding its treatment staff. The single individual surveyed by to date provided five out of five stars for the staff's level of training and experience.


According to Atishwin’s website, the sober living house has a washer and dryer on site, shared and private rooms, a house television, and internet. The center is also conveniently located near downtown Wichita and close to public transportation. The single survey respondent left five stars for the center’s meals and accommodations as well as three stars for its cleanliness.


While has yet to receive any reviews from this facility’s alumni, Atishwin Institute does have positive responses across several third-party sites.

On the organization’s Facebook page, for example, which may be vetted, 13 individuals gave Atishwin an excellent average rating of 4.8 out of five stars, all four- and five-star reviews.[1] On Google, three reviewers each rated the facility a perfect five stars.[2]

By and large, these satisfied alumni praised the facility for its compassionate staff and effective 12-step work. “This place saved my life and I will be forever in debt to [staff member] and his family for having the love, patience and knowledge to help me help myself,” wrote Google reviewer George.


In the sole survey response for to date, an anonymous loved one shared details of a mostly positive experience with Atishwin. This reviewer gave five out of five stars when asked how strongly they’d recommend the center, as well as top marks for the facility’s treatment effectiveness, affordability, and 12-step content. “It helped alot of addicts and saved alot of people who needed their help,” they wrote.


A $75 deposit fee is required upon entry. Shared rooms are $75 per week, and private rooms run $130 per week.
