ABOUT WOMEN IN TRANSITION

Located in northeastern Indiana, about 45 miles north of Fort Wayne, Women in Transition (WIT) is a nonprofit dedicated to helping women recover from drug and alcohol abuse. The program accepts a maximum of 20 women, ensuring they each receive personalized care and develop a strong foundation in sober living through the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to the program’s application, most women complete treatment in anywhere from nine months to two years. No cell phones are permitted during the first 30 days, a period of orientation when women focus their efforts on adjusting to their new environment and on planning for recovery. Women are also required to be sober and drug-free for at least 72 hours prior to admission.

Programming is based heavily on the 12 steps. Attendance is required at seven 12-step meetings week as well as regularly held house meetings. Ultimately, through learning how to be responsible for themselves and care for others, following a structured program of classes, and obtaining stable employment, women prepare to reenter their communities as active, contributing members.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

WIT is led by a dedicated executive director who began working for the organization as a volunteer back in 2009. She then served on the board for three years before being hired by the nonprofit, full-time, in 2013.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

WIT accepts only 20 women at a time. Throughout their stay, women are expected to complete their assigned chores and adhere to house rules, curfew, and other structured guidelines.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

An anonymous alum, the single Best-rehabs.com survey respondent to date, awarded the program only four- and five-star ratings for its counseling options, treatment effectiveness, family programming, holistic options, accommodations and meals, and more. They also found the WIT staff supportive.

Impressively, WIT has only five-star ratings from more than 20 reviewers on Facebook and Google combined. [1][2] “I am very grateful for the opportunity to have been apart of the WIT house, wrote alum Katie. “I love the person I am becoming.” And Chelsea, another proud program alum, called WIT a “Great place to start your recovery,” claiming that she “couldn’t have done it without [the executive director].”

FINANCING

Aside for a one-time deposit of $267 (which includes a $5.00 monthly phone bill, the first two weeks of rent, and a $12.00 drug testing), programming is free. WIT also receives financial support from individual contributions.
