While each client follows a separate, individualized treatment plan, the average stay in our Redfield Residential Facility is approximately 12-15 weeks.  Clients live in dormitory style rooms and engage in supervised social, therapeutic and creative activities at the house.  Clients spend 30+ hours per week engaged in therapeutic activity (groups or one-on-one counseling) at STEP2’s family counseling center from 8 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday.

Groups include

  • Addiction Education
  • Domestic Violence Education & Prevention
  • Problem Solving
  • Seeing Safety
  • Relationships/Communication
  • Anger Management
  • Trauma Education

Comprehensive life skills and life style services are offered during this time and ongoing through all levels of treatment.  Routines are established with wake up, cleaning, sleep, recreation and social scheduling. Support is given to clients through 24-hour staffing.

Parenting classes are offered including new born care and lactation consulting.

Nutrition classes are offered in which clients will work with STEP2’s nutrition advocate to plan healthy meals on a budget, create shopping lists, grocery shop and prepare meals for up to 20 clients.  A portion of the food for STEP2 residential clients comes from the Northern Nevada Food Bank.

Community Service is encouraged and once a month clients will go to the Food Bank to volunteer.  Clients are given the opportunity to exercise and are encouraged to walk the campus regularly.

Once a client has been in treatment for approximately 3-4 weeks, they are able to access resources in the community, such as making sure they have valid identification, medical needs, dental hygiene and legal obligations are identified.

When clients near the end of residential treatment (approximately 8-10 weeks) they attend a pre-employment class where they take interest, skill and personality assessments, build resumes, learn interview skills and have access to interview clothing. 100% of clients who complete this class walk out with a professional resume and once they move out of residential, they are provided transportation for job search and interviews.
