Facility Highlights

  • 30-60-90 Day Programs
  • Individualized Treatment
  • Extended Care

Specialization

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
    EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.
  • Creative Arts Therapy
    Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.

I stayed at Stephouse for 4 1/2 mo. My daughter found this place so I could find myself again. I am a recovering alcoholic. The CEO told my daughter that I would be in the with woman around my age, that I would be eating nutritious food, that I would go on outing, yoga, acupuncture ect. What a line of bullshit. This place is all about money. My daughter was not told when I arrived, that I would be put in Detox. I did not meed to detox, they got me in there knowing they did not have a room. I got a room after 3 days. The food is only served in Detox and it is horrible, the staff sometimes cooks dinners which are corn dogs, frozen pizza ect. When I was transferred to the sober living I had to by my own food. You have to wait to got to the store with the house manager to get your food until you are off blackout so you can have the food from the donations which most of to id expired till you get to the store. It took 2 weeks for me to get a Therapist. I spent 6 hrs waiting to see the Dr. and it was a nurse practitioner. The houses are filthy, we all have a chore at the house to do everyday to keep it clean, a lot of women did not feel the need to do there chores. The houses are never locked. The house managers at night did not have keys. During the day when we are being taken to groups the house are not locked. i tried for 4 mos. to get them to get keys. I complained to everyone and I was told it would be fixed it never was. On Dec 11, 2017 we were told thy were closing the doors and we had to be out by Dec. 29, 2017. I was going home in January anyway but it displaced these woman. While I was at home for Christmas I was told I needed to come get my things because they were closing on Dec 27 instead of Dec 29. Many of these women relapsed while staff went on vacation, they run the place. I was ask to sign discharge papers stating I was leaving against staff advice…..really! I new from the first week I was there it was a sham. I stayed because I had a great therapist and in the home we gave each other hope for a better life. Stephouse needs to be held accountable for there actions

This place got me sober. The staff cared about me and my therapist continues to be a person I trust. Also, this place was the least expensive.

This facility has helped me tremendously with my therapy. People complain and say it's a bunch of interns.. What they DONT know is a lot of them have their license in SOMETHING already.. Just because they need more hours does NOT mean they are any less qualified then someone who has put in all their hours. Anyways.. My therapy sessions are without a doubt the biggest strength here at step house. Also, it depends on your therapist, I just happen to have an amazing one who I CHOOSE to utilize, while other people just take advantage of and complain about instead of reaping the benefits.There is definitely favoritism among clients.Step House Recovery has SAVED my life. You can get sober anywhere you want if you want to put in the work.. However, this place has put a roof over my head, has given me therapy, structure, and responsibility. People complain that they only care about money, this, that and the other thing.. But that's what the MAJORITY of rehabs are like. And a lot of them don't offer things like StepHouse. If people don't want to stay sober, they aren't going to and they are going to find any reason to put a bad name on something so they can blame something or someone else for as to why they can't stay sober. If that's the case and people want to complain about ANY rehab.. Then they really don't want to stay sober.. They just need to get sober on THEIR OWN THEN.. Without the help of a rehab.. Because it doesn't matter where you go- your either going to go to any lengths regardless of whether you agree with program rules, or not.

This rehab has everything that you need to get sober, if you\'re serious. At first, the rules seemed strict, but quickly I realized that it helped. My therapist is awesome, I see her all the time and she has helped me so much. Groups are everyday and have taught me copping skills that I desperately needed. The house I live in is nice and clean, we work hard to keep it that way! Stephouse wants people to succeed after they leave, so there is a lot done here to help me get back into society. I want to get back into school, get a good job, and get a girlfriend! I know getting my life together will help all that!
