Local Substance Abuse Rehab in Washington, DC

One of three programs of The Foundation for Contemporary Mental Health (FCMH), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, The Next Step is a private, abstinence-based intensive outpatient drug treatment program that was established in 1985 in response to the District of Columbia’s growing drug problem. The Next Step recognizes that alcohol and drug addiction is a progressive medical illness that negatively impacts all sectors of society regardless of age, education, race/ethnicity, gender, occupation, or socio-economic status.

The Next Step Program works with patients to facilitate the establishment of a chemical free lifestyle. Underlying our treatment philosophy and service delivery is our commitment to the provision of:

• A person-centered approach to treatment, recognizing that drug users are not all the same.
• Well-researched treatment interventions.
• A therapeutic environment that is safe, respectful, motivational, and empathetic in a way that provides
  the best climate for recovery.
• Treatment that is relevant to the culture and demographics of the patients served.
• A highly skilled, licensed, multi-disciplinary treatment team of professionals.
• Links to outside community recovery resources, such as AA (Alcoholics Anonymous, NA
  (Narcotics Anonymous).
