Steps to Recovery Homes in Cottonwood, Arizona, is located in the heart of the Beautiful Verde Valley. We are passionate about helping others recover from alcohol and drug addiction. We take a holistic look at the person and compile all factors into a recovery program that focuses on all aspects of life, not just on the addiction. We then look at ways to change the self-destructive patterns that keep individuals from being productive and content in their lives and increase the success rate of individuals with substance use disorder.
The clients of Steps to Recovery Homes have a real chance at long-term recovery and successful living. We are not just a standard sober living facility. We provide real recovery homes that are safe, structured, and clean, offering an example-driven behavior modification program that includes life skills. These life skills are essential to people that desperately need to be productive members of their families and society. We have a very successful Job Development Program. People with addiction issues face barriers to employment and life. We work with our Job Development clients to teach them the skills needed to remain employable. We provide a safe environment where they can find long-term, successful recovery by putting their recovery first—where there are fewer stressors to make them think that using is the only answer. We offer Daily Life Coaching classes and have weekly opportunities for telehealth with a therapist. Our program is an excellent way to continue to build a foundation after going through a drug rehabilitation program, behavioral health center, or detoxification program. A solid recovery plan and honest guidance enable our clients to stop self-destructing behavior and start living productive and happy lives.
Steps to Recovery Homes provides life Coaching sessions in areas of life usually significantly affected by addiction, trauma, and behavioral issues. 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 treatment and rehabilitation should include all the areas of an individual’s life hindered by continued self-medication and avoidance of life’s issues.

Steps to Recovery Homes is a non-profit organization and shall be operated exclusively for educational and charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, or the corresponding section of any future Federal tax code.
The purpose of Steps to Recovery Homes is to provide a safe environment, free from any illicit drugs or alcohol, for people with substance abuse issues. We focus on behavior modification and are dedicated to consistency, structure and direction in our homes. The clients we serve are low-income and have lost everything including jobs, houses and family as a result of their substance abuse issues. In addition to substance abuse issues many of our clients are victims of emotional, mental, and physical abuse. We focus on developing appropriate life transforming habits to help these individuals live a more productive life and become valuable members of the community.
Steps to Recovery Homes also operates a local thrift store, Miracles Happen, for the sole purpose of using profits to support the programs, scholarships and expenses of Steps to Recovery Homes. Miracles Happen also provides the clients with work skills that will facilitate their transition back into the community.
To maximize our impact on current efforts, we may seek to collaborate with other non-profit organizations which fall under the 501(c) (3) section of the internal revenue code and are operated exclusively for educational and charitable purposes.
At times, per the discretion of the board of directors, we may provide internships or volunteer opportunities which shall provide opportunities for involvement in said activities and programs in order to have a greater impact for change.
The organization shall have the power, directly or indirectly, alone or in conjunction or cooperation with others, to do any and all lawful acts which may be necessary or convenient to affect the charitable purposes, for which the organization is organized, and to aid or assist other organizations or persons whose activities further accomplish, foster, or attain such purposes.

The court upon a finding that this section is applicable shall select the qualifying organization or organizations to receive the assets to be distributed, giving preference if practicable to organizations located within the State of Arizona.
In the event that the court shall find that this section is applicable but that there is no qualifying organization known to it which has a charitable purpose, which, at least generally, includes a purpose similar to the Steps to Recovery Homes, then the court shall direct the distribution of its assets lawfully available for distribution to the Treasurer of the State of Arizona to be added to the general fund.

The purpose of this document retention policy is establishing standards for document integrity, retention, and destruction and to promote the proper treatment of Steps to Recovery Homes records.
Section 1. General Guidelines.
Records should not be kept if they are no longer needed for the operation of the business or required by law. Unnecessary records should be eliminated from the files. The cost of maintaining records is an expense which can grow unreasonably if good housekeeping is not performed. A mass of records also makes it more difficult to find pertinent records.
From time to time, Steps to Recovery Homes may establish retention or destruction policies or schedules for specific categories of records in order to ensure legal compliance, and also to accomplish other objectives, such as preserving intellectual property and cost management.
Several categories of documents that warrant special consideration are identified below. While minimum retention periods are established, the retention of the documents identified below and of documents not included in the identified categories should be determined primarily by the application of the general guidelines affecting document retention, as well as the exception for litigation relevant documents and any other pertinent factors.
Steps to Recovery Homes expects all officers, directors, and employees to comply fully with any published records retention or destruction policies and schedules, provided that all officers, directors, and employees should note the following general exception to any stated destruction schedule: If you believe, or the Steps to Recovery Homes informs you, that corporate records are relevant to litigation, or potential litigation (i.e. a dispute that could result in litigation), then you must preserve those records until it is determined that the records are no longer needed.
That exception supersedes any previously or subsequently established destruction schedule for those records.
(ii) has taken affirmative steps to keep the information confidential.
The organization should keep all documents designated as containing trade secret information for at least the life of the trade secret.
E-mail that needs to be saved should be either:
