What We Do: Addiction Treatment at First Steps Recovery in Fresno

First Steps Recovery is a full-continuum program specializing in addiction treatment, located in Clovis, CA (Fresno County). We are committed to the safety, comfort, and success of every resident that comes to us seeking treatment. As such, we provide clients with all of the resources they need to begin treatment from drug and alcohol addiction, recover from that addiction, as well as provide the tools to help them learn how to enjoy life again. Regardless of whether your addiction is alcohol, drugs or anything else, our programs are designed to help you learn to live a life substance free.

At First Steps Recovery, you or your loved one will be brought into a safe, clean and caring environment, to gather the strength to take the first steps toward full recovery. “Residential Treatment” (commonly called rehab) is the term used to describe the process by which a person lives in a controlled and safe environment to begin the recovery process.

We understand that true sobriety goes beyond abstaining from abusing substances; it involves healing the soul. A true confrontation of addiction involves addressing the underlying emotional issues and possible mental health complications that are common in those who abuse substances.

That’s why our Treatment specialists carefully guide residents through the entire process of transitioning back into real life to better ensure their complete recovery. From the very first phone call to medical assessments to helping to make the transition to a lower level of care, our specialists provide compassionate care every step of the way.

The Central Valley’s Leading Addiction Treatment Center

A letter from our founder and president:

Thank you for considering First Steps Recovery as yours or your loved one’s addiction treatment provider. At some point, you probably have experienced a sense of despair and hopelessness, of no longer recognizing the person you love and thinking that they have have been lost to addiction.

Imagine what it would be like to have that same loved one hug you and tell you that they love you again! Wouldn’t it be amazing? Think about how lifesaving it would be to see your loved one self-sufficient, living on their own, gainfully employed, pursuing an education, engaged in their vocation, or even volunteering in their community!

The deep sense joy one experiences when fear is replaced by hope is unparalleled; when your loved one is truly committed to their well-being and a part of First Steps Recovery, you no longer need to imagine “what this would be like.”

Our team of professionals sees each person that we serve through the lens of dignity. We know that recovery is possible for you and your loved one, and we walk you step-by-step through the whole process.

We know when someone is in the midst of a substance use disorder they are disconnected from the world around them. We also know when one is sober, engaged, and able to manage their emotions and see beyond themselves, that recovery is beautiful! Notice that I use “recovery,” not sobriety. We view sobriety as a tool in recovery. For us, recovery is a complete reintegration into community.

Our First Steps Promise to you is that each person in our care will receive excellent and innovative recovery treatment services, and you, as a loved one, will also be educated and supported through the whole process.

The services we offer are grounded in behavioral health care research interventions and are facilitated in collaboration with our team, all of who are skilled, licensed, and certified.

When someone completes our full continuum of care, they will be on their way to lasting recovery, and more importantly, they will be fully reconnected and reintegrated into their community.

Feel free to reach out with any questions. Our admissions counselors are here to help you navigate your way toward recovery—for you and your loved one.

Here’s to Inspiring Lasting Change,

Josh Beauchaine, M.S. LMFT
