What is 1st Step Behavioral Health?

1st Step is a licensed, fully-accredited substance abuse and mental health treatment program for veterans with over 20 years of experience and a 98% approval rating from alumni. We look to provide exceptional support and ensure a full recovery, no matter what you or your loved one is struggling with. That’s why we’re partnered with the VA Community Care Network, which can help cover the cost of care.

A Proven Track Record

Veterans suffer from substance use disorder at an alarming rate. It’s estimated that 1 in 4 veterans who have a substance use disorder have struggled with illicit drugs, while 4 in 5 have struggled with alcohol use. In addition, 1 in 4 struggle with a serious mental illness. These numbers are sobering, especially if your loved one is struggling with substance use disorder.

That’s why we treat each patient as if they are family and make sure they are given the individualized support needed to address their needs. Our approach is to restore balance through medical, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual care. Our staff gives patients the tools to address PTSD, pain medication addiction, and/or mental health issues stemming from service.
