Details: 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. Typically, The Next Step patient is an adult, 21 years or older, with a progressive history of chemical dependency disease. His/her primary drug of choice is marijuana, cocaine, heroin, PCP, and/or alcohol. Many have already had some exposure to the judicial system ranging from arrests/convictions for driving under the influence to incarceration. They have recognized the destruction to their lives brought on by their drug/alcohol abuse and/or dependence. They want to change their circumstances but need the kind of help and structure that The Next Step program offers in order to attain sobriety and sustain their recovery.
