Our life skills classes have changed!
Susan Stader, our Founder & Director decided that DBT skills is currently more effective for the treatment of addiction recovery in this current climate. In lieu of many of the options created by Next Step, we now offer a DBT Skills class on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Relapse Prevention group is every Thursday evening. When it is possible, we also include a 6-week class on money management through OnTrack.
Patients are required to be either work, volunteer, attend Intensive Outpatient Program, or attend school full time at least 30 hours each week. They are also required to attend support meetings throughout the week.
Learning to balance these multiple responsibilities is excellent preparation for transitioning back into daily life without drugs and alcohol.

She received her Master’s in Community Counseling in 2004 at Western Carolina University and went on to get her licensure in addictions and mental health counseling.

Small recovery communities, such as hers, are more intimate and more effective in overall client satisfaction and care.
