Stepping Stone House is a minimum 90-day residential treatment program for adult women with a primary focus on recovery from alcohol and other drug addictions. The program is designed to accommodate mothers with children (ages 12 and under), pregnant women and single women.

The evidence based treatment modalities and curriculum used are designed to meet the unique needs of women with addiction. The program is devoted to the prevention and treatment of alcoholism, drug addictions, and other health and behavioral health problems. Pregnant women will receive prenatal care and assistance in caring for their newborn after they give birth.

The treatment is provided by caring and professional staff which includes a qualified group of residential assistants, case managers and licensed counselors. Our commitment to helping women recover is as strong today as it has ever been.
