The 22-week evidence-based educational program teaches individuals about the behaviors and feelings that describe their disorder as well as skills to change behaviors and manage feelings.
Individuals in the program meet for two hours once a week in a group setting.
Considering Joining STEPPS?
To join STEPPS you must have a referral from your doctor or other healthcare provider. After this referral is placed, you will receive a letter in the mail inviting you to our Coping Skills group along with more information about the program. In this group we will discuss which group options may work best for you and how to get started.
For more information about the STEPPS program, or to refer someone to this program, please call 1-319-356-4838 or email us.
After STEPPS, You Have Several Choices:
For example, some individuals choose to repeat the program.
There is also the option of an eight-week refresher course for those who have completed STEPPS.
Other individuals choose to enter a follow-up program called STAIRWAYS™, which meets twice a month for one year and helps them work on additional skills.
