The Next Step Foundation Philosophy
Next Step is a community funded faith-based program located on the western coast of Indiana. Next Step’s “Step-In” treatment program consists of a 90-day residential program comprised of daily 12-Step meetings and weekly classes. Upon successful completion of “Step In,” participants are encouraged to attend “Step-Up,” in which they receive individual outpatient assistance to ensure long term recovery.
Areas of Specialization
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

ABOUT NEXT STEP FOUNDATION
Next Step Foundation, located in Terre Haute, Ind., offers faith-based treatment for men and women struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Next Step is a nonprofit organization that provides affordable residential treatment, sober living, and recovery resources for its clientele.
In addition to operating several gender-specific treatment facilities, the organization runs The Meeting Grounds, a coffee house and resource center, and Little Steps, a daycare center that provides childcare and tutoring.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the center’s webiste, Next Step's treatment is delivered in three distinct phases, or “steps”. Clients begin with “Step-In,” a 90-day residential program that incorporates 12-Step meetings, counseling, weekly classes, and employment support.
Graduates of this initial treatment phase may then apply to the “Step-Up” program, which offers ongoing support from a certified recovery specialist.
The program’s final phase, “Step-Out,” provides access to sober living as well as meetings and classes. At this level, individuals continue with meetings, classes, and counseling, and may be reunited with their children.
Though information about staff credentials is currently limited, the facility's website states that all house managers and directors have “extensive experience in the field of addiction."
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Next Step serves its clients in gender-specific facilities, according to the center’s website. The main facility is The Sanctuary House, which treats up to 20 women at a time. Then women can transition into the Journey House, which features apartment-style living.
The Cornerstone House, Next Step’s facility for men, has eight beds.
