Addiction knows no boundaries. Take your first step today.

First Steps Treatment Center, a 52-bed center at Crozer-Chester Medical Center in Upland, is committed to healing individuals and families affected by drug and alcohol addiction. We are dedicated to comprehensively addressing the detoxification and rehabilitation needs of men and women in Delaware County and the Philadelphia Suburbs. Participation in treatment is voluntary and family-focused.

First Steps Treatment Center includes four levels of care as defined by the Pennsylvania Client Placement Criteria: inpatient hospital detoxification (10 beds), inpatient hospital treatment and rehabilitation (10 beds), inpatient nonhospital short-term detoxification (12 beds); and inpatient non-hospital residential treatment and rehabilitation (20 beds).

Patients benefit from comprehensive, 24-hour medical services and will have access to the extensive resources within Crozer-Chester Medical Center.

First Steps Treatment Center is part of Crozer-Keystone Behavioral Health, Delaware County’s leading provider for psychotherapy, substance abuse and addiction care.
