Meet Our Staff
We are guided by an awareness that most women who begin the DWR program are coming from a place of loneliness, isolation, and a small worldview – one that keeps them blocked from connecting with others and moving forward in life. One of our main goals is to empower the individual to tap into the strengths and abilities she already possesses. Please know that the DWR Treatment Team looks forward to walking with you along your path of self-discovery and recovery – one day at a time.
