Next Step is a faith-based Recovery Program that provides a sober living environment through its 2 homes for women and 2 homes for men along with substance abuse groups, AA meetings, peer counseling, case management, life skills training and mental health services. Our goal is to help those who are serious about managing their substance use disorder regain an independent, substance-free lifestyle. Our focus is on assisting you in obtaining the tools that will help you create a recovery lifestyle, not just sobriety. During your participation in the program, you will be required to strive to become self-sufficient and to actively cooperate with the Next Step program in all ways, including:
We take recovery very seriously and you will be required to do the same. We believe this is an opportunity for individuals to find a new way of life. We also place great emphasis on responsibility. When you are given assignments, homework, etc., you will be expected to do them on time. Remember, money and employment are not signs of recovery and can result in relapse. Recovery is an “inside job”, and no matter how good you look on the outside, material and cosmetic things will not keep you clean. Our goal is that by learning to apply these principles in your life, you can become a responsible and productive member of society.

NOTE: If you are currently receiving treatment utilizing medication assisted treatment (M.A.T.), please be aware that Next Step does accept clients that are participating in a M.A.T. program that is structured and monitored (Western Indiana Recovery Services, Groups, Inc., Valley Professionals Community Health Center and others). Clients participating in either methadone or suboxone treatment may be required to live in a residence with others utilizing the same treatment protocols. M.A.T. clients will be required to be in good standing with their primary M.A.T. provider throughout their time at Next Step. Clients are admitted on a case by case basis.
Applicants who are deemed inappropriate for admission may be referred to other, more appropriate, community resources.
