Addiction hurts. We're here to help.
Alcoholism and other substance use disorders are physical, emotional, social, and spiritual disorders. They are characterized by excessive, compulsive, and uncontrolled use of alcohol and/or other drugs that affect not only the person who is dependent, but also family members and significant others. We believe that these are treatable illnesses and take a holistic approach to addiction treatment.
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. We have several licensed addiction counselors on staff. We offer a wide range of confidential outpatient treatment options for adults through our First Step Recovery program in Fargo.
At First Step, our addiction specialists work closely with registered nurses to identify and manage underlying issues that often accompany a substance use disorder. We offer many levels of outpatient treatment and work in cooperation with the patient's primary care clinician. We accept most private insurance plans and are an approved provider for the ND Substance Use Disorder Voucher Program. We have a free family program for loved ones of those in treatment at First Step. We also provide hospital consultation services and public education and training.
