About First Step Recovery

Our philosophy is to treat the whole individual—mind, body and spirit—by honoring all paths to recovery. And, because both patients and their families are affected by mental health issues and addiction, it is our goal to support the dignity of the individual and the family unit.







Our Story


Founded in 2015 in Warren, Ohio, First Step Recovery is committed to providing drug and alcohol treatment of the highest quality and integrity.


In 2016, First Step Recovery acquired a new affiliate, Travco Behavioral Health—which was founded in 1999 and offers locations in Warren, Boardman and West Union—enhancing our ability to treat mental health disorders as well as addiction (which are often co-occurring) with holistic, evidence-based services—including medication-assisted treatment.


Together, First Step Recovery and Travco Behavioral Health incorporate the latest research on genetic markers that influence addiction as well as proven-effective behavioral health techniques for a range of issues, such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, excessive anger, grief, abuse and trauma, among others.


Patients come to us through self-referral, family/friend referral and doctor/professional recommendation.


First Step Recovery and Travco Behavioral Health are accredited by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) and the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
