First Step

First Step was founded in 2000 as 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, to assist them to positively engage with the community.

We provide 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 judgemental 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 the community.
