First Step Farm offers clients a unique work therapy program designed to promote self-sufficiency and personal accomplishment. The residential rehab operates a fully functional farm that employs participants in the program, offering them an opportunity to replace mood-altering substances with feelings of pride, self-respect and esteem. Programs are gender-specific and teach clients how to incorporate valuable coping skills and 12-Step principles into their lives, as well as develop a solid personal program for life-long sobriety.

I don’t ever leave reviews but this program literally saved my life. I am 28 years old and had been to over 20 programs, in and out of the rooms. I was a chronic relapser and nothing stuck. I committed to the farm women’s facility for a year and learned how to apply the tools I learned To everyday life. To be A responsible, Hard worker, spiritual and how to live as a woman of integrity. I have almost a year and a half clean. I have a steady job which I love and am now working on getting my license back. I couldn’t imagine- like they say- what kind of life was on the other side but it’s better than I ever dreamed. I am a graduate of the farm and I think my review is valuable because I have taken a Rehab tour Of the east coast And there is no facility like the farm IF your actually ready to make a change.
    Helped daughter stay clean but absolutely no substance abuse counseling. Just a drufree work facility
