I sent my 20 year old daughter to Footprints and after being somewhat experienced in this arena, I can say that this is a one of a kind, top notch treatment center that provides above-and-beyond care and programming to it's clients. The accommodations are beautiful, as is the gorgeous and relaxing beach next door, however, the best part of this program in my opinion are the caring and talented therapists, tecs and administration who work with the clients on a daily basis. John Templeton, president/owner, cares about each and every client and always does what he thinks is in the clients best interest. A substance abuse treatment program is only as good as the therapy (group and individual) and care provided, because young people's drug use is often a symptom of a greater problem they are facing such as loss of self-esteem, anxiety or depression, being in an abusive dating relationship, etc. This program goes way beyond the typical focus of many highly regarded conventional programs which focus more on teaching "do not do drugs, this is why you don't do drugs, this is how you stay away from triggers so you don't do drugs ". At Footprints, during individual and group therapy, all of these conventional things are addressed, but the focus is often on the root of the problems people -or the individual - are facing. I say this because my daughter attended an excellent and prominent out of state rehab that did provide an excellent program. Unfortunately, many people with addictions do relapse for varying reasons. My daughter did just one month after a very successful 60 day stay at this other rehab. I ended up bringing my daughter to Footprints upon first sign of relapse, based upon the highest recommendation of a prominent Tampa, Fl therapist my daughter went to who had been the former Clinical Director at Footprints. My daughter did not want to go, she fought going back to another rehab, and ultimately, she ended up having a very meaningful and life changing experience while there. I can say with confidence that all the therapists were very good, and the individual therapy my daughter received from EJ was exceptional; it was something that my daughter felt helped her most in exploring the root of her addiction. Another great thing about Footprints is that a parent can sleep at night knowing that everyone there really cares about his/her child. The clients are treated with respect and dignity, like adults and quality human beings, even when the clients may not feel that way about themselves or always act themselves. I can't thank Footprints enough for their quality program, for being there for my child even when she wasn't there for herself and for helping my daughter to progress along the way to her recovery.
I was one of the first clients to this treatment center. As an out of state client, I have to say that this treatment center and the care given by this provider blew my expectations. The accomodations are beautiful and the beach was sooo relaxing and what a wonderful environment to get away and get my head and priorities straight. I stayed the initial 30 days but opted for a second month and I have to say thank you to the whole staff at Footprints! I totally changed my thinking and was able to start over and become the woman I've always wanted to be!
Thank you!!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
