First Steps Child Care Pre Sch
My son has been going to this daycare since he was 6 monrths old and we recently celebrated his 5th bday. I found First Steps actually on yellowpages.com in my nervous search for a daycare in Riverbank. After looking at 8 different options (in home and centers) the only potential provider who asked to hold and enteract with my then 6 months old baby was Donita. She immediately showed us she had a nurturing and caring personality and children truly brought joy to her life. All of the care takers at First Steps are amazing and my son loves each of them. They provide the children with a safe and loving environment. They are structured yet give the kids the "at home" feel. I would and have suggested First Steps to family and friends. I can not imagine my son going anywhere else. They are wonderful people!
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.
