"The nursing Board originally brought me to First Step. To say I was hesitant and angry was an understatement. After working with the Staff, especially in Aftercare my whole attitude about the process took a complete 180. Suddenly I knew I was supposed to be here. The commander of fellow addicts going through exactly what I was going through was a beautiful process. The love acceptance I gained here was invaluable. I know I will miss my Wednesday and plan to visit again. Who would thought this program made me actual dream job is community outreach for those with additions and mental health deference’s. I researched and learned that the lack of resources available for us. I feel gifted in the spoken word and feel that advocacy and talking to others on their level would not be an issue for me because I AM THEM! The love and inner peace for myself unmoved loving these people I came to see each week. I left with so many inner changes that I never could have gotten without the love commitment from staff and attendees of First Step. What a beautiful hidden gem." Anonymous
