The Questions

Q: How do I know if I need an evaluation?
A: If it causes a problem, it is a problem.

Q: Will the programs satisfy court-mandated requirements?

A: First Step has 12-, 16-, 24-, and 54-hour programs.

Q: Could one of my family members have a substance abuse problem?

Q: What can I do to support my chemical-dependent family member?
A: You can go to a group called Al-Anon, which supports people who have chemical dependency problems. Counseling for family members is also available at our facilities.

Q: Do I have to quit drinking forever?
A: Alcohol dependency is a chronic progressive disease, without intervention it always gets worse - never better. Therefore, a chemically dependent person can never go back to using.
