About the Facility

Reviewed by Our Contributors


Located in the community of Hayward, Calif., 14 miles south of Oakland, Women on the Way Recovery Center (WOTWRC) provides long-term residential treatment and a transitional living program for women struggling with chemical dependency. WOTWRC also operates a transitional facility to support male parolees and their families during their transition back into the community. The facility does not offer medical detoxification services.


Before enrolling into the program, clients undergo an initial interview to ensure the client is prepared for the long-term program and to identify individual needs. WOTWRCs' program includes two phases: the Enhanced Sober Living Environment phase and the Transitional Housing program. Each phase may lasts between six and 18 months, depending on the needs and progress of the client. To treat its clients, WOTWRC combines evidence-based treatment methods, a 12-step program based on Christian values and beliefs, and job and education readiness training.

During the Enhanced Sober Living Environment phase, which serves as a residential program, residents attend educational classes and therapeutic counseling sessions that address a range of topics, including drug and recovery education, improving self-esteem, forming healthy relationships, goal-setting, stress management, and enhancing communication skills. Client's may also attend sessions on areas relevant to their circumstance, such as domestic violence education parenting, and co-dependent relationships. In addition, WOTWRC's immerses clients into a faith-based 12-step program, which includes attending meetings and "step-work" workshops.

Once a resident completes the Enhanced Sober Living Environment phase, with a foundation for sustained recovery, the client may begin the Transitional Housing program. While residents in the transitional program continue to attend educational classes, work the steps, and pursue spiritual growth, clients also begin to prepare for independent living.

During the second phase, clients may participate in vocational training, obtain employment, pursue higher education, or obtain their G.E.D. In addition, WOTWRC provides job referrals through coordinated efforts with Cal-WORKS, as well as childcare, if applicable. The facility also provides referrals for any medical, financial, or legal needs. The goal of the transitional phase of the program is to equip residents with the necessary skills and resources for sober, self-sufficient living.

A state-funded reintegration program, WOTWRC's Men on the Way Recovery provides transitional housing for recently paroled men. Residents attend 12-step meetings, as well as educational classes on domestic violence, fatherhood, and addiction. In addition, residents participate in morning meditation and regular exercise.


WOTWRC employs a team of specialist experienced in the recovery process, which includes house managers, client coordinators, and volunteers. According to the facility's website, the men's program is operated by rehabilitated men who spent time incarcerated for drug-related crimes.
