In 1972, when alcohol use disorder was less understood and the efficacy of treatment was still considered controversial, Steppingstone’s founders began operating the innovative Men’s Recovery Home in the City of Fall River, Massachusetts. This residential program offers a sober living environment combined with a structured treatment program for men with substance use problems who are working towards recovery. After proving this model was effective at treating substance use disorders, Steppingstone opened three additional residential treatment programs in Bristol County – the Fall River Women’s Therapeutic Community in 1985, the New Bedford Women’s Therapeutic Community in 1998 and most recently the Transition House program for men with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders in 2019.  Both women’s programs also offer specialized services to pregnant and post-partum women and their infants.
