About The Practice

About Practice

First Step Recovery Center offers the type of care everyone would want if they needed treatment for addiction. The team believes that treatment for a substance use disorder must encompass holistic care that addresses the addiction together with basic life concerns.

They offer this type of comprehensive care at five offices in Reynoldsburg, Marion, Lancaster, and Columbus, Ohio.

The entire team at First Step Recovery Center believes in several core principles that guide their drug rehab and alcohol dependence programs. Their overriding goal is to give each patient the support needed for long-term success.

They teach each person to take responsibility for their actions while providing treatment that addresses the physical, psychological, social, cultural, and spiritual challenges that are involved. At every stage of recovery, the team treats substance abuse and violence by embracing the cultural dynamics that influence a person’s recovery.

The services available at First Step Recovery Center include medication assisted treatment such as Suboxone®, which gives each person a safe way to detox by treating withdrawal symptoms.

Medical treatment for an opioid addiction, alcohol dependence, or other substance use disorder goes hand-in-hand with counseling. In addition to addiction medicine, the team provides addiction counseling and mental health care in the form of individual and group therapy.

The team at First Step Recovery Center offers comprehensive services in several settings. Depending on each person’s needs, patients may get treatment through a standard outpatient program, intensive outpatient program, or partial hospitalization. They also offer residential treatment and crisis intervention.

As patients progress through their recovery, the team provides ongoing medication management, case management, and a range of services to manage life concerns. Services like sober living housing, workforce development, life skills training, and organized peer support relieve the stress of managing everyday life so patients can focus on their recovery.
