Meet Chris Zollman of Stepping Stones of Atlanta Recovery Residence

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chris Zollman.

Chris, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I got started because I was a drug addict myself. I used drugs and alcohol most of my life, and decided to get sober. I went to detox and then moved into a sober living. After I graduated, I started working for the same program I went through. I worked for that program for a few years. The owner had some personal issues and closed the business. I love working in the addiction field, and with my business degree, I decided to start Stepping Stones of Atlanta Recovery Residence.

Has it been a smooth road?
It hasn’t always been a smooth road. When we first started, we dealt with zoning issues. It was a pain, but I believed in what we were doing. It eventually worked itself out. It was also hard in the beginning as far as marketing goes. There are many other programs out there, and we had to differentiate from the others. We did that by offering an affordable program that holds clients accountable.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Stepping Stones of Atlanta Recovery Residence – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Our company is a sober living for men in recovery. We provide accountability and structure to newly sober men. Our clients are required to go to 5 meetings a week, have a curfew, drug tested 2-3 times a week, have to have a sponsor, and many other things. We keep our program small (18 guys) to make it more personable. We become very close to our clients which builds a unique and special relationship.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
Atlanta is a great city. It can fit anyone’s lifestyle. From trying new food off of Buford Highway, or shopping in Buckhead…it has it all. The one thing I hate the most is the traffic. Sometimes it takes forever to get to places


  • Our program is $800 a month
