Addiction hurts. We can help.
Struggles with alcohol use and other substances affect not only the person, but also family members and significant others. We believe individuals with a substance use disorder can manage the disease and regain control of their life through education, therapy and other supports.
The Village offers chemical dependency assessment and evaluation; if you are covered by The Village's Employee Assistance Program, addiction assessments and education are available at no cost to you. Several licensed addiction counselors on staff are available to help you. Adults who struggle with substance use can access a wide range of confidential outpatient treatment options through our First Step Recovery program in Fargo, North Dakota.
At First Step, addiction specialists work closely with registered nurses to identify and manage underlying issues that often accompany a substance use disorder. You will find the right level of outpatient treatment to meet your needs, and we will work in cooperation with your primary care clinician. Most private insurance plans are accepted, and we are an approved provider for the ND Substance Use Disorder Voucher Program. Family members of First Step clients can attend a family program at no cost. We also provide hospital consultation services and public education and training.
