We focus on recovery. We do not provide treatment or treatment services.
All of our ladies meet a required number of self help meetings.
We often have surprise overdose drills. Unfortunately, relapse is part of addiction, In case of an overdose all residents will know what to do. For those of us in recovery, for us to use is to die!
Our goal is to create a community of hope and redemption through recovery education and support as well as raise awareness through recovery education and provide a chemical free environment for women to promote a chemical free life for themselves. We will primarily accomplish this by using State and Nationally Certified Peer Recovery Support Specialist.
While residing at Next Step Women the ladies learn to accept their personal responsibility. They have daily chores, curfews, and learn to set realistic goals. Our Peer Recovery Support Specialists assist them finding employment, they learn to properly manage their money and contribute to their own rent.
Once stability is shown, employment gained, no behavior issues, and all other requirements are met, the ladies are allowed to apply for a 48 hour pass.
