SobrietySteps For Success
All residents shall remain free of all mind-altering substances at Step Denver. We believe that sobriety is the foundation upon which all other facets of life may be rebuilt. A person who is not abstinent and working a program of recovery will inevitably be unsuccessful in other areas – work, family, friends, finances, legal and/or personal health issues.
Abstinence from all mind-altering substances is the beginning of the recovery process.
With this philosophy in mind, Step Denver requires its residents to remain drug and alcohol-free while living in the facility. Residents are required to participate in regular Breathalyzer Tests and random Urinalysis Tests throughout their stay. Any resident testing positive for drugs or alcohol or found to be in possession of drugs, alcohol or drug paraphernalia, or refusing any of the abstinence testing, will be dismissed immediately from the program. If a resident is dismissed from the program, he is eligible to reapply after 6 months.
Residents participate in the Step Denver ‘Steps for Success’ program. They are assigned a Recovery Support Manager, who helps them to set goals in their recovery, complete assignments, and reach milestones in each of the 3 phases of the program. Residents attend recovery-oriented education groups to further provide them the knowledge, tools, and support to address the disease of addiction. Residents also participate in 12 Step fellowship meetings, where they formulate and maintain their plan on how to manage their recovery as they transition into a safe, independent, self-sufficient living environment. Our men are introduced to and participate in a Peer Recovery Community, which is geared to help individuals overcome the disease of addiction together, as, individually, they were unable to achieve that goal.
If you or someone you know is suffering from the disease of addiction, Step Denver can help. We provide a safe, clean living environment, free of drugs and alcohol. Residents are treated with dignity and respect and can begin the process of rebuilding their lives while in sobriety.
