    Inpatient, Residential & Hospital Aftercare:
    First Step Services, LLC provides Intensive Outpatient and General Outpatient aftercare for people completing and discharging from inpatient programs & hospitals across the country. We provide intensive group counseling, family counseling, individual counseling and other services as needed. The goal is to provide people discharging  from facilities with continued treatment and recovery while they transition back into community living; returning to work, to families and resuming a “normal” lifestyle after completing inpatient or hospitalization.  We provide this service at all our locations. We can begin meeting with you by video conferencing before you leave your inpatient facility to ease the transition, if you would find it helpful.

    If deductibles, co-pays and fees are a concern, we can will work with you to make it affordable.

    “Wow, Just Wow.  Like, when I came here to group, I expected one sob story after the next.  What I got though was a myriad of beautiful hilarious, and smart people who more than just helped my issues with finding myself.  I learned how better to control not only my use of substances but how to control myself as well.  I’ve always pictured myself as a fire burning bright, and the friends I made here taught me how to tame that fire.  If there’s one thing I’m most thankful for it’s the open minds and open hearts that received me here.  Oh, and thanks also for laughing at my stupid jokes.” Anonymous Raleigh client
