Staff is amazing.
At First Step, they ask what we want and actually follow through! At other facilities, they just tell you to go off and journal. Here, they ask, “What do you guys want to do?” It’s really nice.
We know taking that first step is hard. You may have attempted it a few times already. This time will be different.
Our integrated approach combines personalized medical, behavioral, clinical and holistic therapies that are proven to work. You are never “on your own.” We see to it.

Our process for supporting patients through recovery is designed to help our clients achieve the best outcome possible within a safe, compassionate environment.
Since no two individuals are the same, neither is the detox process. That’s why we customize our treatment programs to meet the unique needs of each person in recovery. In every case, we treat our client with dignity, respect and genuine care.
All programs begin with sub-acute detox to help rid the body of mood-altering substances. Our nursing staff provides 24-hour supervision to help you or your loved one cope with withdrawal symptoms. Counselors are always available to help with any underlying mental or emotional issues that may surface.
Within the first 24 hours of admission, the patient receives:
To provide optimum support, we offer the following services during detox:
After an average 5-10 day detox, the patient is medically stabilized and is ready to begin treatment in extended recovery.
Using talk therapy such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing, group counseling, recreational therapy and time alone to process thoughts and feelings, clients have ample support and freedom to understand personal triggers and habits associated with their substance use. Our compassionate staff—many of whom have been in these same shoes at some point in their lives—are on hand to offer honest feedback and genuine caring.
Treatments and services include:
Throughout treatment, our focus is on educating and helping clients develop essential life skills so the changes they are courageously making are long lasting.
Everything we offer at First Step Recovery serves our clients in reconnecting with the world, maintaining positive coping strategies and staying sober for years to come. We help clients support themselves by learning and practicing healthy behaviors that encourage wellness for the body, mind and spirit. They leave inspired to view their lives differently than before.
Holistic activities and education include:
If you have a strong network of family and friends who want to see you sober, IOP may be an appropriate option.
We know that leaving inpatient treatment can put a person at risk. That’s why we’ve established practices in our IOP to guide our clients as they transition into a new way of life, while staying connected to the support they’ve established during their inpatient experience. It’s an excellent chance to utilize the skills acquired during the acute phase of treatment.
The emphasis of IOP is on how to recognize destructive habits and cope with triggers in everyday life as the individual experiences both adversity and happiness. We help the client eliminate situations and things that would trip them up once they’re out on their own.
In this treatment program, the client has an opportunity to demonstrate how they are navigating their personal recovery plan. We discuss challenges, barriers and the successful application of recovery tools. Clients receive feedback in group counseling, and any ongoing personal issues are discussed in private counseling sessions.
Topics covered in the Program are specific to what is needed for a successful integration into life. These include decision-making skills, stress management, self-care and other essential support that needed to cope with all aspects of life. Discussions happen in group and one-on-one scenarios.
It’s an ongoing environment to stand for oneself and each other. With our Peer Support Program, you are never alone.
