There’s something powerful to being heard, someone hearing you is very healing. The goal is for everyone to leave here with a new coping skill to ground themselves."
Every single clinician at Footprints developed a relationship with me regardless of being my primary counselor or not. I was respected and treated as an individual versus being a number or just another client to walk through the doors.
I like to call Footprints my ‘safe zone'. I've been to treatment probably over 15 times, I knew I wanted to be sober I just didn't know how. Footprints staff took me under their wing and started to guide me through my road to recovery. My counselor met me with patience. With her shame-free attitude and support, my counselor Jenny Wagner became my number one cheerleader. They taught me how to accept reality just as it is, no matter how painful it can be. I thought Footprints was just going to be another rehab, but I actually found my home.
What makes Footprints different from any other treatment center is they actually put you in the solution rather than just teach you the clinical aspect of addiction. Natalie Woulf was the first counselor I had that dug down to the root of my issues and actually cared about me as a human being.
What has helped is giving the people who walk through our doors a voice, we want to emphasize it’s their program.
I believe that the way this program is set up and how you are treated like any other member of society, with rewards and a sense of freedom, is why anyone looking for help to achieve sobriety should choose Footprints. From nothing but personal experience, I highly recommend this program.
My biggest fear has always been social rejection; not being able to integrate into the community. That definitely didn’t happen, I’ve formed good relationships with the guys here.
“I thought treatment was going to be a miserable place, this did not come true. Treatment has been pleasant and comfortable. I appreciate having something to make me accountable, being able to assess my progress. I’d tell others to at least give it a shot!”
We can not put into words how fantastic footprints to recovery is. If your loved one is struggling with alcohol or drug addiction, 100% get them into this program! It works! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making us a whole and healthy family again!
When I was at my darkest point in my life, I picked up the phone and put my faith in the people at Footprints. The counselors, technicians, and directors at Footprints are some of the most dedicated and nonjudgemental individuals that I have met throughout my recovery process. They gave me the positive support that I needed to pick myself back up, but were never afraid to show me tough love when I needed that too.
