STEP2 helps adult women of all ages.

STEP2’s intensive outpatient and outpatient services are designed to provide women living in the community with the knowledge, skills and support to maintain sobriety or assist them with getting back on track.

STEP2’s core groups (listed below) assist the women with developing the skills necessary to live independent and healthier lives.

  • Parenting
  • Overcoming Trauma
  • Domestic Violence Education & Prevention
  • Planning for Recovery
  • Relapse Prevention


Employment Development & Transitional Housing Programs

When clients near the end of residential treatment (approximately 8-10 weeks) they attend an employment development program where they take interest, skill and personality assessments, build resumes, learn interview skills and have access to interview clothing. All clients who complete this program create a professional resume and are provided transportation for job search and interviews. 

Once a client has successfully completed residential treatment she is eligible for STEP2’s Transitional Housing program, which includes a fully furnished one, two or three bedroom cottage. Clients plan for, maintain and consume food from a community garden on campus.

Partnerships in the community allow for clients to enter into the workforce smoothly and for them to receive ongoing support to attain employment offering a livable wage.

If you or someone you know may be interested in this type of treatment, please call 775.787.9411.

STEP2’s mission is to break the cycle of addiction and violence in families by helping women who are experiencing substance use disorders participate in rehabilitation services.

By supporting STEP2, we can help more women access the resources and treatment necessary to heal and thrive. Visit their website at step2reno.org to learn more about their important work.
