In taking precautionary measures related to COVID-19, The Magdalen House has suspended all in-person meetings and phase requirements for The Next Step program. However, we have made temporary virtual modifications in the interim, and we are currently accepting new Next Step participants. Please note that we will resume the original, in-person requirements once we resume normal Operating Procedures.
The Next Step
The purpose of The Next Step Program is to provide accountability and structure to any alcoholic woman seeking to sustain and grow in her recovery from alcoholism.
“I would love to share my experience as a member of the “Next Step” program. My sponsor required this of me, and I have to say that at first I was a little agravated ( still trying to do it my way lol.) This program has enhanced and strengthened my sobriety in ways I never imagined!! It has not only helped me to stay close to Maggies, but has held me to remain accountable! There is so much love and support from the ladies in the group. Chloe is one of the most incredible women I’ve ever met. She supports, encourages and is such a beacon of light. I love you so much Chloe!! I highly recommend this program to everyone. It has helped my growth, kept me on a routine, and makes me honored and happy to be a part of.”

About The Next Step
HELPING ALCOHOLIC WOMEN SUSTAIN RECOVERY
The Next Step is a Peer Recovery Program at The Magdalen House. The Peer Recovery Program provides recovery enrichment through year-round, peer-implemented programming to provide any alcoholic woman the opportunity to find and sustain lifelong recovery, at absolutely no-cost. While our Peer Recovery Program does serve as an aftercare program for Social Detox Program alumnae, it also serves as an open community for any alcoholic woman seeking sustained recovery, fellowship, service, and improved quality of life, to have the opportunity to engage in community, fellowship, meetings, and service opportunities. Studies show that actively helping others get sober is directly related to one’s own quality of recovery, and the Peer Recovery Program is based on this simple philosophy: when one alcoholic woman helps another, she helps herself in the process.
