After suffering from a back injury 20 years ago, I was introduced to Vicodin for the first time. Twenty years later I found myself taking a cocktail of morphine, OxyContin and Norco’s in massive quantities daily. To say the least my health and business was suffering terribly as a result of my full blown addiction.
I was introduced to First Step Recovery by a friend of mine who was attending morning 12-step meetings there. I shared my problem in that morning meeting and an attentive counselor there pulled me aside after the meeting and offered her understanding and empathized with me as a recovering addict herself. She introduced me to the program First Step offered and asked if I was ready to get clean.
That was 15 days ago and I just completed their outpatient Detox program. Today I am beginning their Intensive outpatient program and couldn’t be happier to have been liberated from my physical addiction to opiates. A massive daunting, all controlling addiction. I had tried to get clean in other detox programs, but they didn’t offer continuing support. After a spin dry 7-day detox, I would be released and there I was, alone, raw and the only direction given was to attend 12 step meetings.
I am so happy to have been introduced to First Step Recovery. First Step is a state of the art facility, Ultra-modern in their approach to treating and eradicating addiction problems in individuals. From their Detox to their Intensive Outpatient program they have surpassed all other facilities I have been in.
I give much thanks to their Doctors and Counselors for guiding me step by step on my path to recovery.
