If you are having trouble staying sober and are not ready to return to the pressures of home, your community or work, Stepping Stone can help you make this transition.
At Stepping Stone you will be safe, away from the stresses and triggers that make staying sober difficult. As a resident, you will receive treatment, individualized recovery plans and a chance to live with other women in early recovery from addiction who are also seeking lasting sobriety.
Specifically Designed for Working Women
Our philosophy is that treatment which focuses specifically on women’s issues is key to lasting recovery from alcohol. Because alcoholic women often suffer from isolation Stepping Stone fosters an environment in which women learn to live successfully in community with others.
Our primary purpose is to assist and support residents as they move toward sobriety and productive living. During the 6 – 18 months of your stay, you will spend at least 32 hours per week working, volunteering or going to school.
A Structured Recovery Home
Stepping Stone provides a program of classes, meetings and professional counseling, fostering the close-knit community that is so important to early recovery. Residents participate in a range of programs, including both individual and group activities. Programs are held during the evening hours to accommodate daytime activity requirements.
Structured living means that there are rules that must be followed. There are curfews, 12-step meetings, daily chores, schedules and random drug testing with a policy of zero tolerance. We are not a locked facility, but you are required to keep staff informed of your whereabouts when off the premises. Stepping Stone provides full-time, 24 hour staffing and supervision.
