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

Annual Appeal

You are part of the community that has helped more than 1,000 women to reclaim their lives.  Together, we work to give women a hand up.

We are entering an exciting new chapter for Stepping Stone by introducing short-term recovery services for women. This will allow us to improve the quality of our care and to reach more women who desperately need help.

We have spent more than $100,000 refurbishing the exterior of our house and more needs to be done on the inside. Your help is now more important than ever!

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.”
