The First Step Program

first-step.jpgThe First Step Program is a partnership between the Virginia Beach Commonwealth's Attorney's Office, Police Department, Department of Human Services, Emergency Medical Services, and Virginia Beach Psychiatric Center. 

The First Step Program provides individuals who are experiencing an opioid abuse disorder an opportunity to walk into any Virginia Beach Police precinct for assistance in obtaining treatment, rather than incurring a criminal charge or suffering an overdose.
