The Step-Inn Shelter and the Step-Up Residential Recovery Centre are operated by the Ruth & Naomi’s Mission which is a Registered Non-Profit Society and Assisted Living Facility in British Columbia to provide faith-based abstinence and recovery services to individuals who suffer from alcoholism, drug addiction and other life-controlling issues. The two distinct yet integrated programs provide supportive housing for up to 34 men and women who are in recovery. The facility provides a structured environment and staff to support residents in their recovery; first, recovery of their lives, and then to help in their reintegration into the community, work place, back to school, or into other life-giving options. The centre provides a safe, healthy and nonjudgmental environment where residents are respected, acknowledged and recognized for who they are. Services are designed to encourage the development of new coping mechanisms, support networks, healthy lifestyles and independence, all within an alcohol and drug-free environment.
