Client Rights Committee

We’re Here for You

First Step NC is a trusted alcohol and drug use rehab center, providing Substance Use Intensive Outpatient, outpatient and long term after-care counseling in the Triangle region of NC. First Step’s Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Programs (SAIOP or IOP) is a core program at all our locations.

The Client Rights Committee meetings are held quarterly (as appropriate), and include reviewing client grievance reports, revising and updating policies and procedures pertaining to client rights, and reviewing and following up on suggestions placed in suggestion boxes. Serving on the Client Rights Committee can be counted towards Community Service hours. Both short- and long-term commitments are accepted.

  • If you are interested, please inform your counselor. You may also contact Sara Shook-Rosen during business hours at 919-833-8899 or through email sara@firststepnc(dot)com.
  • The committee is made up of alumni, past and active clients and staff members who share the common goal of protecting the rights of clients receiving services at First Step, LLC.  Serving on the Clients Rights Committee can be counted towards Community Service hours.
