A safe and comfortable place to achieve lasting sobriety




Stepping Stone is an alcohol and drug treatment program for working women in their early stages of recovery from alcohol abuse.

Founded in 1962, our primary purpose is to assist and support working women as they move toward sobriety and productive living.

We provide comprehensive recovery services in a safe and secure home where women live for 6-18 months.     learn more

Temporarily Closed

As many of you know, we have been renovating our Queen Anne Victorian which is more than 100 years old.  On March 6, as we were nearing the end of our renovation, the fire sprinkler system was activated on the third floor causing extensive water damage to our newly renovated first and second floors ruining carpets and damaging ceilings and walls.  No one was hurt but the house is temporarily closed so that we can repair the damage done.

We are excited to announce our annual gala to celebrate 55 years helping women recover!  Please mark your calendars for

What People Are Saying

“When I thought I would never be able to get a job again, Stepping Stone gave me hope and strength to transition into my new life of sobriety. They told me there are consequences to poor behavior. I now understand and apply this to all aspects of my life in decision-making and holding commitments. When I struggled with not drinking, Stepping Stone helped remind me of the severity of this disease of addiction and gave me tools to work through it.”

— Program Graduate

“I give to Stepping Stone because I can see the light of recovery and healing in the eyes of the residents. Stepping Stone is unique in its emphasis on work, education and community service. Residents learn how to function in the world while being supported by fellow women in recovery, a caring staff and a structured environment.”
