STEP 2 IS A PRIVATE, LOCAL NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION BASED IN RENO, NV. 

SINCE 1986, STEP2 HAS HELPED WOMEN WHO ARE EXPERIENCE CERTAIN BARRIERS IN OBTAINING SERVICES WHICH IS WHY THEIR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE GENDER-SPECIFIC SUPPORTIVE SERVICES TO WOMEN, WOMEN WITH YOUNG CHILDREN AND EXPECTANT MOTHERS. 

STEP2 WAS FOUNDED ON THE PRINCIPLE THAT PREGNANT AND PARENTING WOMEN SHOULD NOT HAVE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN BEING A PARENT AND RECEIVING SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER TREATMENT AND THEY BELIEVE THAT A CONTINUUM OF CARE MODEL SHOULD ENCOMPASS MULTIPLE STEPS TO REACH AND MAINTAIN SOBRIETY.

WHILE HAVING CHILDREN IS NOT A REQUIREMENT TO ACCESS TREATMENT AT STEP2, APPROXIMATELY 75 % OF STEP2 CLIENTS ARE MOTHERS. STEP 2 SERVES WOMEN AND CHILDREN TOGETHER AS A UNIT FOR RECOVERY RATHER THAN INDIVIDUALLY. MOST OF THE STEP2 WOMEN ARE HEADS OF HOUSEHOLDS, STRUGGLING WITH BOTH ADDICTION AND POVERTY, AND CARING FOR DEPENDANT CHILDREN WITH LITTLE FAMILY OR SOCIAL SUPPORT. 

THE STEP2 YEAR-LONG PROGRAM INCLUDES RESIDENTIAL INPATIENT SERVICES AT THEIR 20-BED RESIDENTIAL FACILITY, OUTPATIENT SERVICES AND TRANSITIONAL HOUSING AS WELL AS WRAPAROUND SERVICES INCLUDING CASE MANAGEMENT, MEDICAL CARE REFERRALS,  AND COORDINATION, CHILDCARE ASSISTANCE, PARENTING EDUCATION, TRANSPORTATION ASSISTANCE, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ADVOCACY AND EDUCATION, AND ON-SITE MENTAL HEALTH ASSESSMENT, THERAPY AND MEDICATION ASSISTANCE. 

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE THE SUPPORT THEY SEEK DURING THEIR JOURNEY TO SOBRIETY AND STEP2 IS THERE TO HELP. 

WHEN A WOMAN IS READY TO LEAVE STEP2, SHE IS CLEAN AND SOBER, GAINFULLY EMPLOYED AND SHE HAS LEARNED LIFE SKILLS THAT WILL ALLOW HER TO BREAK FREE FROM PATTERNS AND ENVIORNMNETS THAT PERPETUATED ADDICTION TO CREATE AND MAINTAIN A BETTER LIFE FOR HERSELF AND HER CHILDREN.
