The negative comment previously mentioned appears to be a smear ad by a competitor to smear the good name and reputation of First Step Services. It is somewhat telling and unusual that this posting is entitled with a name of a fellow practitioner. You can visit www.firststepnc.com and read people’s experiences that are client-submitted feedback about the services at First Step. This company is fully transparent in the staff providing services and the description of the services offered.First Step is a member of the Raleigh Better Business and Chamber of Commerce. The company is a NC state (NC DWI and DHHS) and nationally credentialed (CARF) facility.The primary purpose is to provide evidenced-based practices with a client-centered approach.It is unfortunate that people are not required to post their name with their comments.Tony Porrett

Tips & Advices
If you don't have insurance, you may be able to find outpatient programs like Narcotics Anonymous that offer counseling and meetings for patients at no cost.
Some facilities accept health insurance like United Healthcare, BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, Humana and Medicaid. Many carriers support in-state assessment, detox and outpatient treatment. Some also partially cover residential or inpatient treatment. Because drug addiction is considered a disease, major health insurance providers must treat it like any other chronic condition that requires medical treatment. Be sure to inquire about co-pays and deductibles so you don't receive a surprise bill months after you start a program.
Yes. Some treatment programs promote quick sobriety through seemingly impossible means, such as herbal supplements or religious affiliation. Be wary of questionable claims like, "Shake your drug addiction in one week!" If the advertising sounds too good to be true, the program could potentially be a scam. Instead, look for organizations that include approval and certification from real doctors and health care providers.
Yes. Attending a program that is specific to your drug of choice will make your treatment much more likely to be impactful and successful.  Some provide certain users with medications like Valium and Xanax to counteract symptoms of distress associated with alcohol or drug withdrawals. You may not want to attend such programs if you fear that you may instead become addicted to these substances.
Yes. A physician can determine how severe your addiction is, which will help you decide if you want to try inpatient or outpatient treatment. He or she can also consider any withstanding health issues such as psychiatric conditions that should be factored into your decision. Next, check out facilities and programs that offer treatment for the substances that you abuse.
