When you enter the program, the number one goal is to take you out of the survival-mode frame of mind by giving you a safe, stable, and secure place to start your recovery.
First and foremost, Step Denver is an addiction recovery program. We believe that putting your recovery first is the only way to a successful, happy and self-sufficient life. Here, sobriety isn’t only important—it’s required.
The only way to break free from the stronghold of your addiction is to commit to 100% sobriety. No compromises. No rationalizing or justifying. No excuses. Believe us, we’ve heard them all, used them all—and we’ll shut them all down. To be a part of the Step program, you’ll need to put forth effort to see progress. And part of that effort is following our rules surrounding sobriety by staying clean and sober from all types of alcohol, drugs, mind-altering medication.
Getting sober will be one of the hardest things you’ll ever do—but it will also be the best decision you ever make. Even though it might seem impossible right now, our Steps for Success program will help you take back control of your life.
One important factor in your sobriety is having a brotherhood around you—men who are working toward the same goal. By joining our Peer Recovery Community, you’ll meet others who are going through—or have been through—the same things you are. Together with these men and your Recovery Support Manager—an alumnus of the Step program—you’ll set goals, learn and practice new coping mechanisms, and gain the knowledge, tools, and support you need to overcome your addiction.
I started drinking and doing drugs about 11–12 years old and for the most part was drunk or high on drugs of all kinds until Oct 28, 1998 when I walked into Step. I was a mess but I learned so much about myself and once I actually got sober it was like a whole new world to me.Andrew
I started talking to my aunt again. I talk to my dad every week. I’ve had tons of dental work done, am able to chew on the right side of my mouth for the first time in years, I can actually eat healthy foods again, and I’ve gained a few pounds. I couldn’t have been led into a better situation.Jason

Was sick of tired of being sick and tired. I’m so very grateful for Step. It has forever changed my life for the better. Nothing great comes easy. God has restored my life and Step has given me the tools I need to continue a sober life.Jason
