Start Your
Recovery and
Rebuild Your Life

Step Denver is an all-men, residential recovery program located in Denver, Colorado. At our facilities, we provide a highly structured, affordable living environment that gives residents the knowledge, tools, and community they need to stay sober and become productive, contributing members of society.

At Step, we believe that cost should never be what prevents someone from getting help and seeking recovery. We’re dedicated to keeping our services accessible to everyone. Here, if you’re willing to put in the work to stay sober and rebuild your life, we’re willing to help you get there.

Program Requirements and Rules

Step Denver helps men who:
  • Are aged 21 and older and suffer from the disease of addiction.
  • Because Step Denver is a non-medical facility with no doctors or licensed clinicians on staff, we can only consider applicants who are not suffering from schizophrenia, psychosis, multiple personality disorder, and have no suicide attempts within the last 30 days.
  • Are willing to participate in a criminal background screening. Each individual is considered on a case-by-case basis. Step Denver is unable to help men with severely violent or sexual offenses on their criminal background history. These would include crimes involving death, sex, children, and the use of weapons or arson to cause harm.
  • Are willing and able to work full-time, tax-paying, payroll jobs. No part-time, temporary, under-the-table cash employment is allowed.
  • Agree not to receive any money from  family members, friends, or organizations, or governmental stipends such as food stamps, welfare, disability, or vouchers.
  • Agree not to be on any long-term mind-altering medication such as medical marijuana, opiates, benzodiazepines, Adderall, kratom and nootropics, buprenorphine or methadone for Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT), or any long-term mind-altering medication that can produce a high or a feeling of euphoria.
  • Are willing to participate in regular breathalyzer tests and random urinalysis tests throughout their stay.

How to Apply

We take applications in person or over the phone on the day you’re ready to enter the program and start your recovery. Please note: Step is not a clinical facility and we do not facilitate the detox process. You must be sober at the time of your intake. You may apply by phone from a detox facility.

Cost and Financial Information

There is no initial cost to become a resident at Step. You can walk in today and start your recovery. Eventually, our goal is to help you be accountable for your living costs. After you find a job—which 99% of our men do in the first month—you’ll be required to pay $15/day, $75/week, or $200/month for program fees. You’ll also be responsible for buying and making your own food, which you can do in our on-site kitchen. We will provide the basic necessities until you are employed.
