Introduction and Basic Services

The Stepping Stone facility offers a multidisciplinary treatment approach for adults who are grappling with addiction and co-occurring disorders. In addition to inpatient care, Stepping Stone Center also offers an outpatient track with a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and step down Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) with transitional living options.

Facility and Meals

During the initial stage of treatment, clients stay at the clinical facility, which offers spacious and comfortable accommodations that feel more home-like than institutional. The bedrooms are double occupancy and there are several common areas throughout the building with couches, comfortable chairs and televisions.

After that first phase is completed, clients move onto the longer term residences, which are about a mile off campus. The living facility is in a quiet and private area in Jacksonville that is heavily wooded and secluded. Clients stay in apartment style complexes that are complete with kitchens, dining rooms and living rooms that are shared between two clients and are fully furnished.

During the first phase clients are served their three meals a day and snacks and dine together with food that is prepared on site by kitchen staff. In the second stage, since there are private kitchens in the apartments, clients do have the option to prepare their own meals, however the facility does still offer them food. The meals are nutritious comfort food along with a full salad bar, juice, sodas, fresh baked desserts and daily ice cream.

Treatment Protocol and Team

Treatment at Stepping Stone is based on a five phase program that begins with medical detox and ends with an IOP. The program usually lasts about six weeks or so and is comprised of structured group and individual therapy along with AA meetings. Once the detox process is completed and clients are stabilized, they participate in an intensive daily schedule of programming first in the residential prgram, then PHP and IOP.

A typical day would begin with an early morning wake up, breakfast and medication management. Meditation or daily scripture would follow, then a group schedule that can include team building, dietary or medical lecture, Big Book study, recreational therapy, music therapy and art therapy as a few examples. Exercise and personal time is also integrated into each client's treatment, along with weekly family visitation. Treatment protocols are CBT, EMDR, DBT and other evidence-based approaches.

An extended aftercare program is implemented with every client during their time in treatment that includes assisting clients find a sober living home, and lifelong support through the alumni program. Families are also considered during aftercare planning, and are recommended to support meetings like Al-Anon.
