    First Step Services, LLC of Durham offers a range of alcohol and drug use outpatient counseling & education: Substance Abuse Education, ADETS/Prime for Life, General Outpatient services & Intensive Outpatient Programs.  We offer specialized substance abuse education programs that fit numerous personal, school and pre-trial legal needs. Completing counseling and/or education prior to a court case is considered a “mitigating factor” possibly lessening any punishment that may be required by the court.

    Our Intensive Outpatient Programs meet best practice qualifications and are licensed by the State of NC and accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. We offer individual & family counseling services, short term groups, longer term groups and aftercare programs as well as DWI assessments and DWI education.

To receive the no-charge assessment, you must call us on this number: 1-855-806-5512 Due to state DWI regulations, this does not apply for people needing assessments for DWI, or other DMV/DOT assessments.
