Early Sobriety is not always easy!

Many find that it is not only helpful, but often essential for them to live among other clean and sober individuals during the early stages of their recovery from alcoholism or drug addiction.

Step By Step Recovery provides a safe, supportive, drug free environment for men in early sobriety who are not quite ready to live completely on their own.

The Herring Houses of Dothan provides women the same program and is located adjacent to The Wiregrass Club, Dothan’s AA/NA Clubhouse here on Herring Street.

Our residential programs provide a sense of structure and community, along with a flexible amount of personal freedom.

The Herring Houses of Dothan (our women’s halfway house program) and Step By Step Recovery (our men’s halfway house program)…have established themselves as the premier long-term residential treatment facilities in South Alabama.


We provide a safe, supportive, supervised alcohol and drug-free living environment for recovery. For both men and women striving to achieve sobriety, and those working on maintaining emotionally and spiritually balanced lives who require a structured environment as they re-enter the work place and community, Step By Step Recovery and The Herring Houses for Women is The Positive Place to Be!

We need to ask ourselves but one short question.  “Do I now believe, or am I even willing to believe, that there is a Power greater than myself?”  As soon as a man can say that he does believe, or is willing to believe, we emphatically assure him that he is on his way.  It has been repeatedly proven among us that upon this simple cornerstone a wonderfully effective spiritual structure can be built.

“Life will take on new meaning. To watch people recover, to see them help others, to watch loneliness vanish, to see a fellowship grow up about you, to have a host of friends – this is an experience you must not miss. We know you will not want to miss it. Frequent contact with newcomers and with each other is the bright spot of our lives. .” Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, pg 89 All Rights Reserved
