Epiphany Center Step-Down, a transitional housing program for women and their young children

November 20, 2018


Epiphany Center has opened a step-down/transitional program to support women who have completed structured residential treatment programs and need additional time to prepare for life post-treatment. Completing an addiction treatment program is a major step on the path to recovery, but some of the toughest challenges occur after residential treatment is over. Our Step-Down Transitional Program provides housing and supportive post-treatment aftercare services and bridges the gap between structured residential substance abuse treatment and full independence, essentially closing the gap between rehab and real life. 

Recovery from addiction is a lifelong process. The National Institute on Drug Abuse has found that recovering people who reside in a sober-living transitional housing facility like our Step-Down Program were more likely to maintain their sobriety, stay gainfully employed and avoid arrest.

Epiphany's Transitional Step-Down Program supports up to 12 women and their children (0-5 years) for up to 1 year. Residents receive case management support, independent living education, and access to the Center's recovery specialists. This unique Program connects residents with access to group meetings and other recovery resources, permanent supportive housing resources, and employment and educational opportunities.

And that's not all, our women with children receive ongoing parenting support including infant-child psychotherapy through our licensed Epiphany Center Family Treatment clinicians.

At Epiphany Center Step-Down, if an individual tests positive for a substance, we will explore the individual’s unique relationship with relapse. Often, regress is part of progress. If additional supportive services are deemed to be required, we facilitate this extra support. This may or may not include a return to residential treatment or perhaps a requirement for the individual to participate in an out-patient program. Perhaps, the relapse was related to a situation at work and the individual needs supportive counseling services to assess the ongoing occupational demands. At Epiphany Center Step-Down, we practice client-centered care and will walk with every woman through all aspects of her recovery journey.
