Stepping Stones offers a gateway to successful lifestyles by providing activities, services, and resources to individuals in recovery during, and upon completion of the Salt Lake County Drug Court Program.
Relationships with alumni are developed between individuals in a community of peers. These peers have shared experiences, and can become mentors to support a future vastly greater than life based on past decisions. Mentors can help support an intended bright future, greatly focused on improvement and growth. Peers share stories of what brought them to Stepping Stones and what their life used to look like. A strong focus on new and healthy lifestyle habits, by breaking the vicious cycle of substance addiction, and replacing it with a happy and sober lifestyle.
“We can help break the cycle of addiction.”
- Greg G. Skordas
