Addicts seeking recovery can truly thrive when they are given one-on-one non-judgemental support and unwavering care. First Step Recovery’s unique dual approach to medical and emotional care allows us to meet each individual patient’s needs on a much broader scale.
The dual approach First Step Recovery embraces calls for the intake process to consist
of multiple phases to ensure the client receives the best possible care tailored specifically for their needs. Our rigorous intake process aims to leave no stone unturned as we dig to find the root causes of the addiction at hand.
The first screening phase utilizes an approved system from the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) to classify severity of the addiction, personal needs, and most importantly, challenges. From there, a unique substance abuse treatment plan is created indicating recommended level and length of treatment.
After formal admission to First Step Recovery Center, the patient receives a second, more in-depth evaluation to develop a personalized patient-centered treatment plan. This second phase investigates details about the patient’s life and health history as it relates to their drinking and using—including family history and a complete inventory of physical and mental health.
