Treatment is just the beginning of one’s journey to lifelong recovery.

Research has shown that individuals who actively engage in continuing care after treatment are more likely to remain abstinent. With this in mind, we sought to build our Alumni Community – A place for alumni, families and friends to build and maintain a life in meaningful recovery.  Through activities and events that promote community, support, service and fun individuals are provided with the opportunity to continue to address the unique challenges faced in recovery; while also remaining connected to positive relationships and their treatment experience.

Meet Lisa, Footprints to Recovery Director of Alumni

 

“I love that I am able to develop a program for alumni and plan events where they can have fun in a positive and supportive environment.”

  • Our fear was that our child would not become clean and sober. We were pleasantly surprised that we were incorrect. Rather our child is clean and sober for 10 months thanks to Footprints to Recovery! We are no longer the fractured family that we were due to our child's addiction. Footprints has taught our child to be accountable, respectful, responsible and realize there are consequences for one's actions.

    Parent
  • 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!

    Parent
  • 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.

    William E. Alumni
  • 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.

    William E. Alumni
  • My biggest fear while seeking treatment was owning up to the stuff I did, which I have been able to do without fear. It's a really good program and you don't come across great programs like this a lot.

    Sarah U. Alumni
  • What I valued most in working with Footprints was their flexibility, their willingness to work with me. They will work with you for your best interest, not just for your money.

    Kevin D. Alumni
  • “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!”

    Israel S. Alumni
  • 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.

    Justin C. Alumni
  • You have freedom and structure at the same time. The staff genuinely cares about you and wants to help you. They teach us how to cook, we do yoga, we have art and music classes, and meditation. They taught me how to have fun sober. I am so grateful for the experience I had at Footprints.

    Sammy W. Alumni
  • 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.
