About Our Auction

The Mothers and Infants Program at First Step provides comprehensive substance abuse treatment for pregnant and postpartum women and their babies.

Utilizing evidence-based clinical practices to address substance abuse, mental health, gender-specific, and trauma-related issues is at the core of the program. After delivery, the infant remains with the mother while she is in treatment, with an average stay of 6 to 8 months. An emphasis is placed on prenatal care, parenting skills, relapse prevention, smoking cessation, life management skills and family reunification.
Women admitted to the program are addicted to opiates, benzodiazepines, alcohol, cocaine, and many times, a combination of these drugs. They have experienced physical, sexual, and emotional trauma, and have turned to drugs to cope.
