Our success rate is high
While Randy S. was working on his sobriety at The Wheelhouse, his newborn child died. Randy said, â€œIf it had not been for the help the men at The Wheelhouse gave me, I probably would have drunk myself to death. My whole family has gained from the strength I gained.â€
Not every recovery process works for everyone but The Wheelhouse has a relatively low recidivism rate, which means it has an unusually high success rate. Of course, much of this success comes from the men themselvesâ€”but it is also thanks to the previous residents who return to help the new men in their journey to recovery. We call this our â€œwheelâ€ or â€œcircle of success.â€ This wheel of receiving help and then returning to help others is a proven way of continuously empowering all involved and helping each address lifeâ€™s problems without returning to substance use and/or abuse. By helping others, all of these men are putting step 12 into practice.
â€œEven though Iâ€™ve been sober for five years, I visit The Wheelhouse every day so that I can help the new men.â€ Lanier Y.
