Stepping Stones for Families believes that addressing drug and alcohol abuse can improve the health of the whole family.

With this in mind, Stepping Stones' therapists offer the following services:

  • Drug and alcohol evaluations

  • Referrals for treatment

  • Interim treatment services for those on waiting lists for other community agencies

  • Outpatient services for substance use and mental health

  • Alcohol and drug education

Our Assessment and Referral: Alcohol and Other Drugs/Addictions (Adults) and Outpatient Treatment: Alcohol and Other Drugs/Addictions (Adults) programs are CARF accredited.

Drug and Alcohol Evaluations

Drug and Alcohol Evaluations are available Monday-Friday by appointment for adults only.  We do not having a waiting list and most clients can been seen within a day or two.  The evaluation includes an alcohol and drug history and assessment, along with visits with family members and others with your permission.  Based on the evaluation results, our counselor will recommend the appropriate service.  If we are unable to provide the recommended services, we will make a referral to other agencies within the community. We are now able to provide drug and alcohol evaluations in the jail.  Call (402) 488-6511 for more information.
