Steps to Recovery Homes Overview

The long term goal of the Steps to Recovery Homes is to create a healthy, safe and structured environment for our clients, to help our community by giving people an opportunity to become productive members of society and lower the recidivism rates in the community. Steps to Recovery Homes is a viable placement for those who are serious about changing their lives.

Steps to Recovery Homes was formed by Anne and Damien Browning. We have both been through hardships and have changed our lives, becoming assets to our community and our families. The decision to open this business did not come lightly, It was one that came straight from our hearts. Our goal is to always build healthy relationships with the public and work in cooperation with others. Together we have a vision of helping our clients to help not only themselves, but also to learn how they can help others.

We believe the assistance that we offer to our clients will be beneficial to them. By setting an example, providing direction, and working on behaviors; we know that our clients can become assets to their families. They can also become responsible, accountable and find integrity in their own lives and in the eyes of the community. We understand that many people have missed certain building blocks in their lives. We believe that people really do want to change, but are lacking the guidance and environment to do so. We provide that environment. We know from our own experiences that it is possible, and know we will be able to help.

Steps to Recovery Homes is located in Cottonwood Arizona which is the heart of the Beautiful Verde Valley. We are passionate about helping others recover from alcohol and drug addiction. We offer a holistic look at substance abuse and compile all factors into a recovery program that focuses on all aspects of life not just on the alcohol abuse, heroin addiction, cocaine or crystal meth addiction. This way has been proven to maximize the success rate of individuals with a substance use disorder. Our graduates of Steps to Recovery Homes have a real chance at long term recovery and a successful life. We are not just a halfway house. We provide real recovery homes that are safe, structured, and clean along with an example driven behavior modification program that actually provides the life skills that people desperately need to be able to be a productive member of their families and society. We are within blocks to a drug counseling program that collaborates with our mission. Our program is an excellent way to continue to build your foundation after going through drug rehabilitation program, behavioral health center, or a detoxification program. We believe a solid recovery plan and some real guidance can enable you to stop self-destructing and start living a productive and happy life.

Steps to Recovery Homes provides Life Coaching sessions in areas of our life that have usually been significantly affected by drug addiction and/or the abuse of alcohol. Some of these areas are; finances, relationships, personal boundaries, obtaining and securing long term employment, communication, health and hygiene, parenting and many more. We believe that treatment and rehabilitation should include all the areas of an individual’s life that have been hindered by continued drug use.
