Clients at Next Step Village progress through a three-phase system of rules and requirements. This structure aims to promote self-esteem, trust, accountability and respect among residents.


Laura Clarke of Advanced Recovery Systems describes the housing at Next Step Village and the sober living environment’s three-phase program.

Phase 1

The first phase lasts 30 to 60 days. During this time, clients must attend weekly house meetings and daily 12-step gatherings, obtain a sponsor within a week of arrival and search for employment. Curfew is set for 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and for 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

The second phase lasts 60 to 90 days. Residents must meet the requirements set during phase 1 as well as new goals. They also attend five 12-step meetings per week and continue to engage in weekly programming. During this time, curfew is set for 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and for midnight Friday and Saturday. Residents may obtain weekend passes from their house manager.

Phase 3

The final phase lasts 120 days through discharge. During this time, clients must continue to meet the requirements set during phase 2. Clients are expected to attend a minimum of three 12-step meetings every week and mentor a phase 1 housemate.
