At 1st Step, the primary focus of our substance abuse treatment is meeting each individual in the present moment to guide them along their journey of recovery. Making the decision to find help at one of the many existing Florida drug and alcohol treatment centers isn’t the kind of decision anyone necessarily makes enthusiastically. Some people can experience relief or a sense of freedom in realizing they need help with substance abuse, but many will have complex ideas and feelings about confronting their problems. 1st Step Behavioral Health is a Florida drug and alcohol treatment center dedicated to helping people on an individual basis, discover for themselves the steps they will need to take to achieve a lasting change. If you or your loved one is suffering from addiction, or any co-occurring mental health conditions, we invite you to call today.
