Family Program: Our commitment to the family
First Step Services of Raleigh provides a program for families, significant others, friends and interested parties. Family and Community Education (F.A.C.E.) helps families and concerned others learn how to deal with the effects of alcohol and drug use of a loved one. Learn how to effectively help your self and the person you care about with a drug or alcohol problem.There is never a fee.
F.A.C.E. provides support and an open forum for attendees. F.A.C.E. is not for the person with substance use disorders or concerns.
Our Intensive Outpatient programs provide family night for all participants. Families and significant others join the group members in the group for one night. It is educational, supportive and enlightening for group members and their families, friends and significant others. Group discussions, role plays, education are all provided. Families in attendance are allowed to participate as much or as little as comfort allows.
We also provide family counseling for individual families regarding a family member’s substance use and families of group members. If you’d like more information, call us today at 919-833-8899 or send an email to 1ststep@firststepnc(dot)com.

“I came to First Step after my third treatment center. My first impression was that it was a waste of time and I would be better off at a meeting. That opinion quickly changed. First Step has amazing substance abuse counselors. I learned how to have fun again clean. It made me a happier person in general. I love First Step. I would definitely recommend it to a fellow addict in need. Also the family night portion was very helpful with me and my family. We learned how to have a healthier and happy relationship for all of us. Thank you First Step!” Anonymous group member
