What we Offer
The success one individual feels can directly affect his/her self-esteem, self-sufficiency, and self-determination. Additionally, their growth often influences and motivates others who are beginning anew. This radiating effect can not only influence the entire community but also inspire the progression of social change. Beginning Step believes this program may be a catalyst to this type of change.
Beginning Step is proud to report that on a yearly average, 90% of IOPD clients chose to continue treatment services post-graduation by transferring into Beginning Step’s outpatient program.
They also chose to continue sober living in a recovery community by moving to the Safe Step housing sites – with ongoing monitoring and direct contact with individuals with various years of sobriety. Many of these IOPD individuals were homeless prior to program entry.
