Mile High Magazine 1/22/2023 Step Denver

Guest: Paul Scudo Executive Director Step Denver is a men’s residential addiction recovery program that gives men with nowhere else to turn the opportunity to overcome the consequences of addiction through a program based on sobriety, work, accountability and community.  Studies have shown that 70% of the people that are homeless is because of addiction and 70% of those people are men.  What makes Step different is they are a peer recovery based recovery program.  They require all of their men to work tax paying full time jobs and are not allowed to be on any government or third party assistance programs.  After they leave Step, their case manager stays in contact with them for a year.  Out of the men they are in contact with 83% stay sober, 85% stay employed, and 87% have stable housing.             www.stepdenver.org
