Three-Phase System

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.

Phase 1

The first phase starts upon the resident’s admission. During this time, residents must obtain a sponsor, home group, attend daily 12-Step meetings, morning meditation, a weekly house meeting, bi-weekly community meeting, and four life skills groups. Additionally, residents must also become employed, attend school, or volunteer in the community, as well as keep personal spaces clean and participate in property clean up. Finally, weekly outpatient programming and drug screens are required. Curfew to return to property is set at 9 P.M. for the first week and will then increase to 10 P.M. Sunday through Thursday and 11 P.M. Friday and Saturday.

Phase 2

The second phase may be achieved after 30 days if the resident accomplishes requirements set during Phase 1. During this time, new goals are established and expectations set during Phase 1 continue. However, Life Skills participation is voluntary and residents are now eligible for overnight stays off property if approved by staff. Curfew to return to property is now 11 P.M. Sunday through Thursday and 12 P.M. Friday and Saturday.

Phase 3

The final phase may be achieved after 90 days if the resident accomplishes requirements set during Phase 2. During this time, new goals are established and expectations set during Phase 2 continue. However, residents are only required to attend three 12-Step meetings a week and meeting attendance is no longer recorded and submitted to staff. Residents may stay out overnight, and no longer have a curfew, but should to report their whereabouts to the house manager and check in upon their return.

The recommended length of stay at Next Step Village is six months to one year. The Three-Phrase systems helps promote personal accountability as residents continue to grow and develop during this time.
