Treatment and Recovery

At First Step Recovery, we treat alcoholism and drug addiction as diseases. Like other chronic diseases, such as diabetes and some forms of heart disease, Substance Abuse Disorders have a well-defined and predictable course of development, as well as a common set of symptoms.

Starting the Process

We strive to make First Step feel safe and comfortable. We are here to help people get well. The process of recovery at First Step can begin with something as simple as a conversation so that the client can learn more about our treatment process.

Giving Hearts Day is February 9th!!

First Step is again participating in Giving Hearts Day. On Feb. 9, please visit to make your donation.

Alumni Meeting

Please plan to attend our Volunteer Planning Meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17. We are starting to organize our 2nd Annual Dick Beardsley Run/Walk for Recovery and learning ways to participate/support our Family Program for Giving Hearts Day.
