*An interdisciplinary staff

*A willingness to allow each client to find his/her way in  recovery

*Allowing the client to experience safety, significance, and belonging

*Strong family and continuing care components

At WINGS we are not just here to educate on the issues of continued substance abuse, we also consider our program to be “life support” for our clients.  We address a variety of subjects that impact their lives and give them the tools that they need to make sound judgments, improve communication, develop values, solidify goals, gain self-confidence, and continue their education while receiving treatment. 

We understand the impact mental health and trauma can have on addiction and seek to address these areas accordingly. WINGS strive to assist clients and their families in breaking the stigmas related to mental illness through education.  WINGS believes all clients can grow when presented with the right resources and support systems.  WINGS takes an integrated approach to assisting those with mental illness by providing education and encouragement focused on betterment of mind, body and spirit.

 WINGS believes in a trauma informed approach to treatment planning and addressing behaviors.  WINGS seeks to identify signs and symptoms of trauma and understanding potential paths for recovery.  WINGS empowers clients to work through problems, heal damage they may have caused within relationships, and build self-worth through continued experiences of success.   

 WINGS educates clients on the importance of 5 key principles including safety, trustworthiness and transparency, peer support, participation and collaboration, and empowerment- voice and choice.
