Next Step Recovery provides structured addiction recovery programs for men 18 years of age or older who are recovering from substance abuse and mental health issues. Men join our transitional living community because they are committed to working on their own recovery and helping others do the same.

Admission is voluntary and at the discretion of NSR. We require residents to commit to a minimum of 90 days, however, the average length of stay is 6-9 months. At 12 months, length of stay will be re-evaluated by the Executive Director.

We also offer a 12-week intensive outpatient program for individuals who need extra clinical support to help them successfully transition to transitional living. Currently, our IOP is only open to our transitional living residents to ensure program quality, continuity and safety.

All new applicants must submit and pass a background check application.

*Please note that we currently do not admit people taking Suboxone, Vyvanse or any other controlled substance.
