With outpatient treatment, you can get the services you need in a way that suits your personal schedule. This is ideal for those patients who cannot be away from home, studies or work.


Since many of our services are after-hours, it reduces the need for patients to explain extended time away from their existing commitments.

Access to Support

The outpatient programs allow individuals to remain in close proximity to their loved ones and support network while receiving the medical or behavioural addiction treatment they need.


Outpatient treatment is generally less expensive than inpatient programmes, while providing the same high level of attention and care. Medical aid coverage is accepted for many aspects of the First Step outpatient services

Ongoing Care

The regular support groups at First Step ensure that patients remain connected to their recovery community. Our multi-disciplinary team of professional staff are always on site and available.


Our staff members are highly qualified and proficient, treating patients with the dignity, care and empathy that they deserve to help them to re-establish a more positive self-image that is fundamental to overcoming their problem.

Our extended care programme is staffed by a range of professionals, including certified addiction counsellors, consulting psychologists and psychiatrists.
