Individual Therapy

Individual therapy sessions provide the space where clients are afforded the safety and comfort to work on their individual growth. Clients re-examine their negative thoughts, behaviour, and actions and work to modify them in ways that support their sobriety. Support, guidance and advice are critical during recovery from addiction.

Family Group Addiction Services

First Step's weekly family programme educates and supports families faced with addiction.

Addiction is called a “family disease” for good reason. By the time most families reach out for help, the disease has progressed to a crisis level. First Step’s weekly family programme educates and supports families faced with addiction. By engaging with other individuals in a similar situation, families learn new, healthy ways of coping. Through education and guidance in group discussions at our Addiction Services meetings, they will gain knowledge and practical skills to support the recovery process.

They provide a safe, comfortable and structured tertiary care environment for clients who are busy during the day. These Halfway Houses can be paired with First Step Outpatient Centre Addiction Services such as attendance to the Outpatient or Aftercare programmes.

Adolescent Addiction Services Outpatient Treatment

Adolescent Addiction Services Outpatient Treatment

It is recommended teenagers do not go to a full-time rehab programme where they may learn bad habits and be influenced by older addicts and patients. With this in mind, we offer the support and guidance in an outpatient forum and often in the one on one environment needed for teenagers to begin their recovery process. We teach teenagers how to regain control of their lives by empowering them with the tools to make positive life choices.
