For more than 50 years, Stepping Stone has helped women in early recovery from alcoholism rebuild their lives.

Stepping Stone is a residential program designed specifically for working women in their early stages of recovery from alcoholism. Residents spend at least 32 hours per week in work, volunteer, or educational activities.

Stepping Stone is located in a lovely old Queen Anne Victorian home in the Richmond district of San Francisco. The home accommodates 14 women.

Stepping Stone women come from different walks of life. Their common bond is the disease of alcohol and drug addiction.

Though not affiliated with Alcoholics Anonymous, Stepping Stone’s treatment philosophy is based on the principles and 12 steps of AA.

Stepping Stone operates on a comprehensive social model and is licensed by the State of California Department of Health Care Services, License # 380032AN. We have a policy of zero tolerance and as such conduct random UA testing.


Stepping Stone envisions a day when
all women who suffer from drug and alcohol abuse can get the affordable help and support they need.


To assist women in early recovery from alcohol and drug abuse to achieve lasting sobriety and return to the workforce.
