    First Step Recovery, a licensed addiction treatment facility, provides comprehensive, confidential treatment of alcoholism and other drug dependency. At First Step Recovery, we believe these are treatable illnesses, and we base our recovery program on this guiding principle:


    Alcoholism and other drug dependencies are physical, emotional, social, and spiritual disorders. They are characterized by excessive, compulsive, and uncontrolled use of alcohol and other drugs that affect not only the person who is dependent but also family members and significant others.
