Seeing Clearly

A First Chance Success Story

 

It’s not always easy to see when you need help. That’s how 22-year-old Trish* felt when she enrolled in StarVista’s First Chance Outpatient Services earlier this year, a 12-week substance abuse treatment program for adults suffering from alcohol or drug use issues.

 

A young adult, Trish found herself at First Chance after a local judge mandated the program as part of her treatment for a misdemeanor.
