First and foremost I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude for Mario (Dr.), Bradley (clinician/counselor) and Miss Rose (counselor/group leader)! They go ABOVE and BEYOND to ensure that patients feel welcomed and comfortable during this difficult time which could be uncomfortable for patients that may feel embarrassed or that their ego may be getting in the way of their recovery. I have 2 years and 8 months clean and wouldn’t be here today without the support of those mentioned above. So let’s get into the meat and potatoes of my disappointment……the communication at First Step Recovery is the worst I’ve seen in my 42 years on this earth. Where to start?????? I don’t want to bore y’all with a 678 page book but a few examples are as follows: when I came out of detox and connected with First Step I spoke with my counselor for over a hour and set up phone sessions every Friday at 11am instead of in person due to the pandemic. Well here I am 3 days out of detox on a Friday waiting for my counselor to call me as we discussed but 12pm came and went with no call then 1pm no call. So I finally built the courage to call First Step and was told that my counselor no longer worked there? So they paired me with another counselor for the same time ever Friday. Well what do you know……again no call or communication from my new counselor or let alone any personnel from First Step (mind you during this period I remained sober without any relapse) so I call their office again (it’s like dajavo) thinking to myself there’s no way this could be happening again! But to my surprise it happened again. So I call the office again and was told that my new counselor was no longer working there hahahahaha

First time so I have only good things to say. My only concern is that I am sorta handicap or have hard times with mobility (in/out van, shower, steps) and see it excellent if “handicapped facilitated”. It would be sad to not get treatment because of my disabilities.

I've been coming to FSR for about 6 yrs now and I have to say it's greatly improved over the last couple of years I love Dr Khadi , she is always very pleasant and has answers for all.my questions I would also like to say that Val , Kathrine ; Beth and Tom are always very nice and do a fantastic job! I recently started counseling with Keith and for someone who prefers a.female counselor I am quite comfortable speaking with him and hope to continue Thanks FSR !!!!!

I love this facility, the staff the most. Dr. Kade, has the warmest heart you could ask for from a health provider. She truly cares about helping you succeed. I would be lost with out her. My counselor along with the rest of the staff is so compassionate. They treat you with respect and kindness. They understand your a real person with real problems. They all have a special place in my heart. I love Fairfields FSR. Keep up the good work everyone!
