There is a solution
We believe the greatest gift a person can receive is the gift of recovery. This gift allows you to see life through the eyes of one who has learned from the lessons of the past. Imagine what it would be like to have this insight, and make changes today based on this gift. At 1st Step Behavioral Health, we believe recovering from addiction and dual diagnosis is exactly that; a new life forged from the knowledge of the past.
1st Step Behavioral Health is a vision started by Gus Crocco, L.C.S.W., who has over 25 years of experience in the field of Addictions and Co-Occurring disorders. Today that vision has been realized and cultivated into a comprehensive treatment program. Our staff believes that the disease of addiction and/or co-occurring disorders are treatable.
1st Step Behavioral Health is a licensed and Joint Commission Accredited dual-diagnosis long term care facility. We focus on physiological rebalancing of the individual through medical, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual care.
It is our philosophy that when an individual is given an opportunity to experience faith and hope, the miracle of change will occur. Proper treatment instills the gift of joy to a human life that for many years has known only suffering.
Our goal at 1st Step Behavioral Health is for our clients to surrender the urge to fix self and begin to participate in the natural healing process of life. Once this goal is accepted our clients "move out of the problem and into the solution". Goals will be achieved with true compassion and honesty from our highly trained staff, many of whom are in recovery and know what it's like to recover from this illness.
