    “I have been to groups in the past, but none compare to First Step. There is actually a healing process to this place. Being able to share and open up with people who had the same struggles as you is amazing. The counselor was amazing at hearing you and knowing how to respond to you. Hearing other people stories had a huge impact on me. I didn’t even think I had a drinking problem until after a few groups. I found me again while taking these group sessions. Doing activities that focused on the topic was also helpful. I now know how to stay sober!” Anonymous First Step Durham group member comments
