About First Step Center

Philisophy

First Step Center's mission is to provide client-centered, trauma-informed, holistic treatment utilizing evidence based practices in order to address an individual's recovery process. We strive to guide each individual, including their family, throughout the recovery process with the goal of lifelong sobriety and healthy living.

Tucked in the stunning Sonoran Desert, FSC offers residential treatment, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient recovery programs. Upon entering treatment, each client receives a dual diagnosis assessment and an individualized treatment plan.

At First Step Center, we treat the individual and create a custom program based on individual needs. In addition, what sets us apart from other centers is our holistic approach in treating the mind, body, and spirit as well as offering a comprehensive nutritional program and dual diagnosis treatment.

We believe recovery happens by identifying and treating all underlying issues. During treatment, we work to support our clients and inspire hope in them, so they can rediscover themselves without the veil of substance and be confident in their own recovery. The goal of our treatment programs, addiction, and trauma specialists is to provide the personalized, intensive, and effective continuum of care necessary to bring healing into our client’s lives.

We believe that our team’s expertise in the treatment of addiction and trauma-related issues will greatly benefit you or your loved one in overcoming addictions, trauma, and co-occurring disorders. Within the First Step Center program, we believe everyone is capable of a fulfilling and lasting recovery. Through evidence-based addiction and mental health treatment, our residents can gain healthier lives and establish fulfilling and loving relationships.

For clients suffering from moderate to severe addiction, our all-male residential facility is monitored 24 hours daily and offers 10 beds and plenty of luxurious amenities. In most cases, clients are recommended to stay the full 30 days. In addition to the aforementioned, our services include:
- Individual, group, and family therapy
- Family Systems Therapy
- Nutritional and Amino Acid Therapy
- 12 Step programs
- Trauma Informed Care (SE, EMDR, DBT)
- Brain Spa (CES, weighted blankets, Chi machine)

Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

    They saved my son’s life! This intensive program taught him/us so much. His days were filled with healing activities for his mind, body, and soul. It’s been a couple of months since he’s been home and he continues to meet with his sponsor and attend meetings. I am deeply greatful for the all of the caring people that contributed to his successful recovery!! To top it all off, all of this healing took place in a beautiful residential facility tucked away in the peaceful hills of Scottsdale. I can’t thank you enough!!
