Stephanie Griffin – Program Director - Windhaven House - Sober Living For Women in Dallas - Extended Care Services for Women in Dallas, Texas

Stephanie Griffin – Program Director

My name is Stephanie Griffin and I am a recovered addict and alcoholic. My journey in this field began when I got sober May 22nd, 2012. After a year of sobriety I started working at a treatment center on South Padre Island called Origins Recovery Centers for about 3 years. I started my profession in addiction treatment there as a Recovery Advocate and then worked as the Alumni Support Specialist. During my time spent on the island, I learned what type of treatment really works in helping women recover from this disease. I believe that addressing the spiritual, mental, and physical components equally is the most effective way to recreate our lives. In 2015 I was blessed with the opportunity to expand my knowledge and experience in the drug and alcohol treatment field by moving to Dallas and signing on with Windhaven House, where I started as a Recovery Advocate and am now the Program Director. In my opinion, Windhaven House is special because it is the perfect merger between inpatient treatment and being a fully self supporting member of society. I’m truly grateful for the opportunity to be apart of a team who genuinely gives all of themselves into each and every women who walks through the doors.

Nikki Mullowney- House Manger

My name is Nikki Mullowney and I’m a recovered addict. My sobriety date is August 5, 2016. I worked at a dual diagnosis gender specific treatment center for women for about 2 1/2 years. My passion is helping women recover from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body. I am a firm believer that the combination of the 12 steps, and clinical attention is essential for long term sobriety and a better quality of life. As someone who has had to utilize all of these resources to get sober, stay sober, and find joy in life, I feel confident in my abilities to guide women in early sobriety through the same process.

Sarah Jones- Recovery Advocate

I am Sarah Jones and I am a recovered addict and alcoholic. As a Windhaven Alumni, I know first-hand that our program works. Windhaven taught me the life skills and recovery tools necessary for long-term sobriety. More importantly, they helped guide me towards a relationship with God that allows me to live a happy, joyous, and purposeful life. Reflecting on the work God had done in my life while at Windhaven, I became passionate about being a part of that process for other women struggling with addiction. I first joined the Windhaven team as a house manager in 2016 and am currently working as a Recovery Advocate. In addition to my work at Windhaven, I am also a full-time student pursuing a license in chemical dependency counseling.


Kristen Powell - Recovery Advocate - Windhaven House - Sober Living For Women in Dallas - Extended Care Services for Women in Dallas, Texas

Kristen Powell- Recovery Advocate

I am Kristen Powell and I am a recovered addict. I have been sober by the grace of God since 8/8/2016. After a decade of drug and alcohol abuse, numerous jails, and institutions, I decided I had enough. I finally knew I was going to die if there was no change. Barely alive, I flew to Texas from Atlanta, Georgia. I completed inpatient treatment at 164 Recovery in Hubbard, Texas. I developed a relationship with a God I didn’t think wanted to have anything to do with me because of the terrible things I had done. Today, I know that nothing happens in God’s world by mistake and my God is bigger than any struggle or fear I have. Upon, discharge from 164, I was referred to Windhaven Intensive Outpatient. I came to IOP for over 5 months because these women understood me and I wanted to help other women just as the staff of Windhaven helped me. I was honored to be a House Manager for 13 months at Windhaven and now a very grateful Windhaven Recovery Advocate.


Shelby Rosebraugh - Recovery Advocate - Windhaven House - Sober Living For Women in Dallas - Extended Care Services for Women in Dallas, Texas

Shelby Rosebraugh- Recovery Advocate

I’m Shelby Rosebraugh and I am a recovered addict/alcoholic. I’ve been sober since March 12th, 2015. I started using drugs when I was 14 years old and my addiction progressed quickly. Asking for help was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I got sober at Origins Recovery Center when I was 21 years old. While I was there they suggested I complete Windhaven’s program upon discharge. At Windhaven I learned how to be a recovered woman and build a relationship with God. The staff showed me what being happy, joyous, and free looked like. They helped turn me into an example for other women. I am so grateful I was given the opportunity to help women as a Recovery Advocate at Windhaven!
