Strong, patient/client-centered program, highest ethical standards. CARF accredited. Multiple locations in Raleigh, Durham, Garner & Cary NC. If I wasn't an employee, I absolutely would choose First Step Services, LLC. My employment at the centers would prevent me becoming a patient. Absolutely would recommend this facility because it is CARF Accredited, Fully DHHS NC Licensed. We have had former patients return and become quite successful. The decision would be based on the comprehensive assessment and consultation with the Clinical Director or the Medical Director. Patient centered, exceptional clinical program, strong relationships with community & referral base. Downfalls would be having to compete with low cost DWI programs that aren't required to be DHHS licensed or achieve any level of Accreditation. Our high standards carry a high financial cost. We network with all the majors that operate in our areas; we check benefits and provide authorizations, billing, overview of using insurance for behavioral health.
