Our Program

What You Need to Know

We get it and we’ve been there. At Step you’ll get real support and guidance from men who have been through our program and know where you’re coming from. Step will help you get (and stay) clean and sober so you can work toward rebuilding your self-worth and your life — but you have to do the work. While living at Step, you will have to obtain a job and you will have to be an active participant in every aspect of your recovery. Your effort is the only path to progress. If you’re ready to put in the work, we’re ready to help.

  • How do I apply for the program?

    Call 303-295-STEP (7837), or come in person and speak with our Admissions Coordinator. Application hours are 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Applications are taken on a first-come, first-served basis for same day admission at 2:30 p.m., if accepted. Intake for Friday applicants will be the following Monday. Exceptions can be made for applicants calling from out of state, other programs/facilities, or the judicial system.

  • How much does the program cost?

    There’s no cost to enter the program. There are minimal program fees paid by residents once they’re employed as part of the accountability component of the program.

  • What if I already have a job?

    While having a job is great, it is strongly suggested that all new residents participate in the first five days of orientation. All scheduling, including work, must comply with program requirements.

  • What if I have trouble finding a job?

    With the support of our Career Counselor, 99% of the men who enter this program obtain full-time employment in their first 30 days.

  • How long is the program?

    There is no set length of stay. You’re welcome to be part of the program as long as you’re in compliance, showing effort, and making progress.

  • Is there a waiting list?

    Although there is no waiting list, bed availability changes daily. Applications are taken on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Will my criminal background disqualify me?

    No. Each individual is considered on a case-by-case basis.

  • Do I have to pass a breathalyzer or drug screen to be admitted?

    You have to pass a breathalyzer, you cannot be intoxicated, and the results of your drug screen have to match the information given in your application. You can apply from a detox facility by phone.

  • Are visitors allowed?

    Visitors are allowed on the weekends with approval from our staff. Residents also have the freedom to visit with family outside of the facility.
