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”

  • 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.

  • “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!”

  • 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.

  • 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. Id argue every topic, comment, and anything in between. But each day staff never gave up on me, through bumps and bruises, I found who I was suppose to be. More than anything my counselor Stephanie never gave up hope. She truly cared about my well being, helping me through some of my darkest times and uncovering things I never knew existed in me. She was there the whole way, caring about me until I could care for myself. As far as the other staff I cannot say enough. They always know how to handle every situation and always seem to say the right things. There isn't one staff member I cant say I don't love to be around and don't feel comfortable talking to. I have been here for roughly 6 months and I can truly say without Footprints I would not be alive today. I am so grateful for having the chance to come here, It’s my home. I love this place and I would recommend Footprints to anyone who wants help and wants to live life. Today I am the best person I can be. I’m happy, joyous, and free and I owe it all to Footprints.

  • 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.

  • 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
  • With our dedicated staff, and small client to therapist ratio, we are able to provide an intimate safe environment that fosters healing and acceptance.

    Lori Staff
  • We have created a safe space for clients to explore thoughts, feelings, and emotions that they were too uncomfortable to express previously. For this very reason, we've attracted a very large population struggling with complex issues including but not limited to their trauma histories, mental health symptoms, their sexual orientation, etc.
