I came to Footprints to Recovery in September of 2019. I was terrified coming directly from a 30-day rehab to the office, instead of going home. It was nothing like I expected. I walked into a beautiful home and was met with a lady that was about my age with blue hair. She had the most positive reassuring vibe, and I knew at that moment everything was going to be ok. In my time at footprints, I had some breakthroughs that I was unable to have the other recovery homes I had been to. I had been labeled a rapid relapser. I just could not seem to get it before. Footprints had just the right balance of structure and freedom to let me choose life and recovery and feel good about myself. Everyone has their own path to walk, everyone’s recovery looks different, but having a solid support system to walk with you through my individual journey was amazing. I secured a job and held it my entire stay. I was able to spend time with my son on a regular basis and I reconnected with the child I had lost in my addiction. My family welcomed me back with open arms after years when they saw my progress. They were extremely impressed when they came to visit me at my footprints home. This is also where I completed my relapse prevention, and codependency classes. The staff is amazing. I am now living on my own with both of my children and still get encouraging phone calls and messages from them. I made a lot of friends and my forever network of sober sisters.
Footprints has completely changed my life! Before coming to the program, I was a bit hesitant. I had never lived in a recovery residence before, but through this program I have gotten my life back. I am closer with my family, I have gained trust back, and overall am a better person than I ever thought I could be. This program saved my life!
