Stairway Recovery Homes

About Us


We always describe the recovery process as a journey. Overcoming and beating an addiction is a process and needs to be taken in steps. Our unique recovery residence conveys a very powerful message of love, support, and family, offering a 12-Step experience that can fit most budgetary needs.

Stairway Recovery Homes are 12-Step based, sober living homes that are affordable, gender specific and structured in a way to benefit each individual resident. We assist them to make the most of their new lives in recovery.

Our program puts a lot of emphasis on accomplishments like building up a solid recovery foundation on which to stand, acquiring gainful employment and achieving higher education. We are dedicated and work hard to get our clients active in their chosen 12-Step communities. Achievements in recovery and life need to be earned and not automatically given.

Our residential staff and management take a very hands-on approach to recovery, driving clients to all important appointments and meetings. We also make a point to stay on top of industry trends, incorporating a blend of cutting-edge and time tested techniques.

We believe in a family style sober living setting. What that means is, we’re creating a home and a community within each location. Trust and love are essential components in this process.

Our owner and founder, Mr. Michael Lynch, was inspired to get into the recovery field when his best friend died of a heroin overdose. After being given this precious gift of recovery nine years ago, Michael knew that he needed to do what he could to help.

At Stairway Recovery Homes we feel like many people in the industry are missing the point. Sober living homes and recovery organizations are supposed to be helping the client recover. Not perpetuate the cycle of coming in and out of detox after detox because it is profitable to the owners.
