First Step is a 7 bed residential level B group home that is licensed by the Department of Behavioral Health and Development Services.
At First Step, we work with young women ages 12-18 that need continued treatment after being released from a residential treatment facility or the Department of Juvenile Justice.
The program is designed to work with young girls that are demonstrating mental health concerns and deed a structured living environment before being transferred back into the community. The girls will have individual and group therapy as well as 7 psycho-educational groups at work. They also adhere to a structured schedule at the home.
The home is staffed with a therapist, a clinical case manager, and a vocational coach to help the young girls in every aspect of their lives. The girls also see a psychiatrist monthly to ensure they are on the correct medications and the medications are within therapeutic range.
