Recovery
First Step Recovery's Phase II Treatment empowers clients to create a life they’re unwilling to trade for a drink or a drug. Learn how this service fosters independence.

Extended Care Phase II Treatment (Phase II) is set up to guide men and women in early recovery to become responsible, productive members of society. Phase II program is geared at building individual’s self-worth, instilling positive habits and encouraging independence and resiliency.

Phase II builds upon the skills a newly recovering person learns during treatment, essentially bridging the gap between treatment and independent living.

A typical day in First Step Recovery’s Phase II would look like this:

  • Early morning activity, including therapeutic chores promote personal responsibility. This is followed by breakfast, morning meditation, working out in the gym per client’s preference.

  • After lunch, afternoons are focused on individual and group therapy, which enhances emotional regulation and cognitive skills as well as providing tools for relapse prevention.
  • Clients are also offered case management services, which includes assistance in setting up doctor appointments, building a resume, working on a GED, applying for jobs and securing employment, building parenting skills, etc.
Phase II mealtime
  • Evenings are filled with dinner and 12-step meetings in the community. Speakers are often brought in to share their recovery experience, strength and hope. Clients are encouraged to develop a relationship with a sponsor, with whom they can meet to conduct 12-step work.

  • Late evenings include a nightly wrap up, which enables clients to form the habit of practicing a nightly tenth-step review. The AA Big Book and NA Basic Text studies are also held in the late evenings.

Phase II is covered by insurance and financial assistance is available when necessary.
