A safe and comfortable place to recover from alcohol and drug addiction


Stepping Stone helps women in early recovery from alcohol and drug abuse to rebuild their lives and learn to live in the world as sober women.

We do this by providing a structured program of recovery services and a safe and secure home where women live for 6 – 18 months.

How To Help

For the recovering women of Stepping Stone, help begins with you.

Stepping Stone is 60% funded by caring individual and organizations dedicated to helping save and rebuild women’s lives. Although residents contribute to the costs of running Stepping Stone, we cannot do it without your help.

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.”
