STEPPINGSTONES TO RECOVERY
Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation
Steppingstones To Recovery believes that alcohol and drug problems begin innocently with social and experimental use, and progress to abusive use, then to dependence - which is accelerated if certain genetic factors are present.
Steppingstones is not a hospital-based "inpatient" treatment facility offering medical and detoxification services, but refers out to a number of facilities for this purpose in an effort to match the proper level of care with financial resources.
Steppingstones does, however, contracts with two in-town Recovery Residence sober living facilities:
The Awakening Center is a supportive, structured living environment for men who are new in their recovery from alcohol and/or drugs, and transports clients to and from Steppingstones treatment sessions.
Parkway Place is a supportive, structured living environment for women who are new in their recovery from alcohol and/or drugs, and transports clients to and from Steppingstones treatment sessions.
Steppingstones to Recovery Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program is licensed/accredited by:
• CARF (Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, carf.com)
• GA Department of Community Health (former Department of Human Resources)
Accredited by: Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities
Certified by: Georgia Department of Community Health

What is CARF Accreditation?
When considering a Chemical Dependency Treatment provider, how do you evaluate the different available options? Where do you look to determine which providers may offer the highest quality services? The answer is CARF International.
CARF International is an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services providers in the areas of Aging Services, Behavioral Health, Child and Youth Services, Durable Medical Equipment, Employment and Community Services, Medical Rehabilitation, Opioid Treatment Programs, and Vision Rehabilitation Services.
Programs and services that are CARF accredited have demonstrated their conformance to internationally recognized standards for service delivery. They have demonstrated their commitment to continuous quality improvement and a consumer-driven focus.
Persons served play an active and vital role in the CARF accreditation process, from helping to develop the international performance standards to giving input on the quality of services they receive. Through accreditation, providers demonstrate their belief that all people have the right to be treated with dignity and respect, have access to needed services that achieve optimum outcomes, and are empowered to exercise informed choice. Steppingstones To Recovery is pleased to join CARF in this mission.
