Stepping Stone welcomes all individuals for services related to alcohol and drug addiction, and those in need of life-enhancing recovery from co-occurring conditions. It is our mission to primarily serve the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community, but our doors are – and always have been – open too all. Clients often have other medical and psychiatric conditions that interact with and impact their addiction.
We are committed to providing the most holistic and comprehensive recovery and treatment services for clients. In order to help clients achieve the best stabilization in all life areas, we recognize the importance of integrating attention to these other medical and psychiatric issues throughout the treatment process at Stepping Stone. It is part of our program to provide referrals and support for linkages to services related to these other co-occurring conditions and to incorporate those services into the client’s treatment plan and recovery process.
It is recognized that when a person enters Stepping Stone, he/she is reaching out for help and deserves a welcoming response. We take responsibility for assisting each person who enters Stepping Stone’s door by making sure he/she has a comprehensive risk assessment to assure safety and is connected to a relationship that integrates attention to his/her multiple needs while in addiction treatment. In addition, we are committed to making sure that the appropriate resources and referrals are made available whether the individual will be admitted to our treatment facility or not. The life of each person is precious, and we have an important part in welcoming him/her into sober, healthy living, including recovery from co-existing medical and psychiatric conditions.
