Founded in 2000, First Step is a not-for-profit organisation that specialises in addiction and mental health treatment. Based in Melbourne, our mission is to provide safe and effective pathways to recovery for all people with addiction and substance abuse related issues with the ultimate aim of enabling them to positively re-engage with the community.
We provide a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary treatment, which includes a combination of medical, psychosocial, legal and vocational support services. Our team of highly qualified and experienced practitioners provide compassionate and non-judgmental care throughout the various stages of recovery.
Our services are all provided in one location and are provided at no cost to our patients, who are some of the most disadvantaged members of our society.
