    Shame and guilt are two of the main reasons substance abusers and their families take
  • What brought me to First Step was drinking and driving and being arrested twice. My first impression was that I wouldn’t learn anything and that I would hate it. What I thought was helpful was listening to others and their stories and how they handled their situations, they helped me reduce the want of alcohol […]

    My first thought of treatment consisted of being nervous and not sure of what to expect. Shortly after beginning group I realized that everyone has similar issues but come from a variety of paths in life. I quickly felt in place as I realized that everyone pulled together to give positive feedback. My favorite group […]

    First Step is a great place to come to; to receive an assessment and treatment. The group sessions were very helpful in understanding the problems that arise from the substance abuse. The entire staff was very understanding and helpful. I would highly recommend First Step to anyone.

Even though I was very nervous and frustrated about having to attend group, I believe that it is a great tool put in place whether you are an alcoholic or drink socially sometimes.

    First Step was Awesome! This is the third treatment cent I’ve been to and was by far the best First Step doesn’t try to shove anything down your throat; they leave information on the table and allow you to take it yourself. I think that helps people open up. Neither Cynthia nor Phyllis views us […]

    I received information with a list of possible providers to contact for assistance with getting an assessment. Initially, I felt embarrassed for even having to call and say that I had a DWI – my first and LAST one. Looking down the list, I chose to examine those closest to my home in driving distance. […]

    What brought me here to First Step was the use of weed. I failed a pre-drug screen with my CDL’s which cause me to take the classes to get my CDL’s back. I had no idea of what to expect my first day of group but it was great. During my time attending groups, I […]
