At Footprints to Recovery we believe that what makes us successful is listening to those who we work with. Here’s a look into what others have had to say –

“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 non- judgemental 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, New Jersey

“Footprints saved my life. I had never been to a rehab before and really didn’t know what to expect but from stories from the other clients I knew I was in a special place. From my first day staff took time out of their day to make sure I was doing okay. I wasn’t used to people doing that, and that was just the beginning. I was a completely different person when I walked through those doors then the man I am today”

Mike R, Illinois

“I’ve spent the past 2 years trying to get sober in and out of treatment, but each time I’ve felt something was missing. When I came to Footprints to Recovery I was destroyed, hopeless and scared. The staff here immediately took me in and actually took the time to help me begin my healing process and to this day they’ve stood by me and believed in me, even on the days I couldn’t believe in myself. I truly feel that the staff and program at Footprints have given me a real chance at finding myself once more”

  • 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.

  • Jenny Wagner is without a doubt the greatest counselor I’ve ever worked with. I could tell right away she cares very deeply about what she does and that passion really got through to me. The fact that she cared about me made me want to care as well, which is something I have struggled with as long as I can remember. She helped me get to the root of a problem and truly examine it. She guided me to the conclusions I needed to draw and the steps I needed to take on my own. Footprints to Recovery is hands down the best treatment program I have ever gone through and Jenny Wagner is a prime example of the kind of care one can expect to get there.

  • 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.

  • 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."

    Mary Staff
  • 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.

  • What has helped is giving the people who walk through our doors a voice, we want to emphasize it’s their program.

    Stacy Staff
  • People often feel so alone in their addiction, we offer them this nonjudgmental open and supportive group. We emphasize individuality, but also togetherness.

    Caitlin Staff
  • Every person had an interest and compassion in my recovery. I am grateful to have found this place. I like that it is not 12 step required and I was offered many coping skills.

  • 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.
