Starting the Process

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.

Addiction and the Family

We believe that addiction affects the entire family, and that’s why we treat the entire family. Our Family Program provides support, education, and community for loved ones of those struggling with addiction.

Marathon legend Dick Beardsley will be here to share his addiction recovery story at 6 p.m. Dec. 28!
