For 20 years First Step has worked tirelessly to develop a treatment model for our clients that recognises and effectively responds to the complexity of combined mental health and addiction issues.
Now the treatment model we use is increasingly being recognised as the 'gold standard' in the treatment.
For First Step this model was simply a response to the needs of our clients and we are exceptionally grateful for the philanthropic and charitable support (each of you!) that afforded us the freedom to develop and refine the system & philosophy that we use today.
As you read this page, we would like to thank you for your generosity in supporting First Step. You can be sure that the monies you donate will go directly to benefit the more than 2600 highly vulnerable people that we support each year. In doing so you are immeasurably changing lives for the better.
