Stepping Stones Sober Living in St. Paul
Founder, Callan C., founder of Stepping Stones sober houses, has been sober since 1996. Prior to coming to Minnesota, he worked as a pilot giving air tours over the Grand Canyon. Having lost his job as a result of drinking and drug use, Callan moved to Albuquerque, NM to work for his father. His drug addiction worsened, and he finally hit bottom when he was caught breaking into his father’s house to rob him for drug money. Feeling defeated, Callan’s father gave him an ultimatum: get help or our relationship is over.
On March 1, 1996, Callan came to Minnesota ready to get sober. He went through extended primary treatment, a halfway house, sober house, and the apartment that started the network of sober houses that Callan runs today. He found that by sharing his story with newcomers that he was able to touch lives and help others, just as he had been helped when new to recovery. Now 10 years sober, Callan is still an employed and qualified airline pilot but has reduced his flying hours to dedicate his life an career to helping others find the same magical gift of recovery that he has found in St. Paul.
Each Stepping Stones sober house has a dedicated house manager whose responsibility is to ensure the well being of the house occupants. All with at least one year of sobriety, the house managers show a commitment to working a 12-step program in their daily lives, and demonstrate through their actions that they can lead by example. Typically having gone through one of the sober houses, house managers encourage house members to talk about what is going on with their lives and recovery, and to help house residents to be accountable to one another.
