Footprints showed me the change I needed to better my life. I found Footprints on the internet, I didn’t really know what I was in for as I had never been to rehab before. What I came to see at footprints was genuine people that care about recovery. It is owned and operated by family. I really don’t even know where to start with how much each and everyone there helped me. The staff that work there are knowledgeable and caring and want success out of each person there. The days are well organized for group therapy and the meetings they take the clients to are still the same ones I go to now. The structure of group sessions and one on one are laid out well, they also have a weekly afternoon trip somewhere fun and once a month a day trip. Footprints taught me how to get sober but most importantly how to stay sober. I practice what I learnt there on a daily basis and I couldn’t be more grateful for that. They took the time to really learn about me and so could help me in the way I didn’t know how. I couldn’t recommend footprints more highly than I do. It’s the staff that make a place what it is and footprints has the best of the best people who genuinely want to help, and know how! Jon, Jerad, Josh, Taylor, Shane, Phil and more that make up what footprints is, I couldn’t thank you more, you played the biggest part in the biggest change in my life.

I'm sure there are other places one could attend rehab. But I wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else. It was my fist, and my last time in rehab. And I think that's probably how one would like it to be. It is a good thing. John and the team there provide a very intimate experience. It's been a couple of years now and I am thankful everyday that I had the good fortune to come across Footprints. I've since completed both my associates and bachelors degrees and landed a great job. John was one of the first people to congratulate me. It's nice to know that these people still have my back should I ever need anything at all. They put you in touch with a great network of people, all ages all backgrounds. The Mens quarters are like a very nice house. No hospital or sterile settings here. , Plus, it's right on the beach! It was a great opportunity to live as roommates and neighbors and when I was there. A typical day... Consists of making your bed. Going to a group session. Then, Men and Women will then do there own things. There are a couple hours to grab some food, hit the gym. Come back for another group activity.. Good conversations definitely take place.. Some down time followed by a very nice AA meeting. Large, clean venues. Pretty cool ones actually. And some pretty well off people that one may not expect to find, but they are there. They, along with everyone, have wisdom to share. Venues change daily and always offer new insights. It was a chance for me to tackle an issue of alcoholism in my family. And I have since found myself living a straight and healthy life and Footprints was one of the biggest contributors to that.

Footprints is an angel on my shoulder. Not only did they help me achieve Recovery they also provided me the tools necessary to continue a safe sober life. I learned how to be honest with myself and others. I was able to come out of my shell and be open about my issues. I now have the willingness to move forward in life heading towards serenity. Thank you John, Shane and all of your staff for treating me like family. If anyone has questions about my experience at Footprints please feel free to reach out to me.

Footprints is a place of extreme serenity. Any person who is serious about a new way of life, you can find it here. They gave me all the tools to turn my life around, become a better father, person, and find inner peace. They keep it small and focus attention on each individual, so you don't get lost in the mix. It's a family environment, with caring staff. I wouldn't recommend any other place! Footprints changed my life! I love you guys, John, Jared, Phil, Brian, Josh, Maggie, Shane you are all guardian angels!

My way of life was not working. I voluntarily came to Footprints and was bought into the program within a day or two. I could tell immediately that this was not necessarily all about the money for the staff and owners - they truly cared about each of the patients. This was my first, and so far ONLY, rehab, and I'm proud to say I am still sober after leaving in April 2017. This place changed my life and made me a better husband, father, friend, employee and citizen. My chin is up along with my positivity and outlook on life. I've heard horror stories about rehabs, but I most definitely did not have a bad experience. I would recommend this place to anyone who is serious about doing whatever it takes to experience REAL life. Thanks Footprints Beachside Recovery for my new lease on life; my wife, children and I truly appreciate your time and efforts on my recovery.

I guess the best place to start is from the very beginning. I am a 52 year old women that is a wife, mother of four, 21, 18, 10 year old twins and a grandmother of 2. I have been suffering with my alcoholism for way too long! I had tried another treatment facility here in the Pittsburgh area about 10 years ago. Unfortunately It hadn't worked for me there. My life had become so unmanageable that I was going to lose my life or all the people in my life that I cared for so much. I started my quest on looking for a rehab facility on the internet. I had come across Footprints Beachside Recovery. After making the initial call and speaking to Phil on the phone, I already felt a little more at ease. It took me a few more calls to ask Phil any questions I had that day and he got right back to me and had an answer for me that I could feel good about. I was making a very hard decision to go to this rehab because it was 1200 miles from home and I had to leave my family. I had the pleasure of speaking to John on the phone and he sealed the deal for me. I arrived there on January 25 2017, and began one of the greatest journey's of my life! From my intake with Phil and Maggie, to my coin out it was an emotional experience. One of pure fear and one of great hope! I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience at Footprints. Everyone is so professional. And to have people treat you with dignity and respect when you are going through treatment is an exceptional feeling. Because I can say when I entered Footprints I was completely broken and empty. I loved that it was a small facility, so that I really fealt i didn't get lost in the shuffle. All of the counselors are so knowledgeable in the addiction field. They each had a way of making you feel like each group was about you. Each one of the clients took something away from each group. They made me realize I have a disease and it can be managed with all the great tools that they have given me. It is so wonderful to know that I can be happy in my life today. I know it would not have been possible if it weren't for everyone in the footprints family! I can't believe how they made me feel welcomed, loved, and unconditionally accepted! With all the hard work we put into our days, they also make sure we know what it's like to have fun and laugh completely sober. I have to add that being at the beach wasn't so bad either. These are the best group of addiction specialists you ever wanted to meet! I will be forever grateful for everything that they have helped me accomplish. I never had 100 days go by so quickly! They are in my heart on a daily basis! I miss my home away from home! My Footprints family!!

Amazing experience and has truly changed my life! I have waited to leave this review and now that I have almost 1 year sober I feel like it's the right time. I traveled from Kansas after my wife found this place from a friend that had gone and it was worth the trip! The staff here is amazing. They truly care about you as a person and do that for everyone that walks in the door! One reason for that is that there isn't 100 people there at once and you become just another number and some money. They keep the groups small which ensures you are getting all the attention and care you need! The way they do everything has had such a lasting and changing effect on me! Individual sessions with my one on one counselor were extremely helpful! Then the group sessions with different counselors and different perspectives with different topics were amazing! They really understand what is needed for a good recovery and lasting recovery. They do everything they can to not only keep you sober while you are there but more importantly help prepare you for when you get back out in the real world again! I also feel like I should comment on the facility and lifestyle things as that is something I looked for before coming. While it's not the most important part of treatment it did kind of help ease me when I got there. The treatment facility is nice and clean along with the house I stayed in. The way they operated made me feel like I was never locked up or caged in. They give you some freedom which I feel is important because it helped prepare me for when I got out. You get options like yoga and gym time to help get you physically and mentally healthy! They also do extracurricular activities that help show you that you can have fun sober! I could go on forever about how great this place is and what it has done for me. I would not be where I'm at today with out Footprints! To this day I still use what I learned in my time there and will continue to do so as it has helped keep me sober to this point! I don't think there is another place out there that can compare to Footprints and I highly recommend it to anyone that is ready to get help!

I am not sure where to begin so I guess I’ll start at the beginning. My daughter approached my wife and I and did one of the most courageous acts a child can do by facing her parents and admitted she has a problem and asked for help. I was devastated, relieved and proud simultaneously. We immediately began the process of researching and inquiring into rehabilitation facilities. A friend of hers gave a referral of a positive experience which lead us to call Footprints Beachside Recovery. We began by talking to Phil who made us feel right at ease; it was obvious that he is someone who understands, is experienced, and was ready to help get our daughter the help and support she needed. He was responsive and knew exactly what to say to me and had a one-on-one with my daughter over the phone to give her an opportunity to express her issues first hand without being concerned that her parents were listening in. Of course we wanted the best for our daughter but the costs were a concern as they would be for most families. Phil took my insurance information and took control. He did all the homework for me and as it turned out between my insurance and Footprints ownership’s willingness to be flexible our daughter was reserved a spot and shortly scheduled to arrive. I can't express the feeling of relief knowing that this part of the long road to recovery for my daughter was resolved. I am not going to tell you that the road that lay ahead did not come without bumps and unexpected challenges, my child suffered through an intense detoxification process and an extended period of illness symptoms but her strength, fortitude and the Footprint’s support system got her out of the dark tunnel and ready to dedicate herself to the road to good health. Those of you facing similar circumstances now I assure you that you should not hesitate and call them up because once my daughter arrived as an inpatient she found an experienced and dedicated staff, extremely comfortable accommodations, professional therapy services (both individual and group), a supportive community and a weekly itinerary that encourages the concentration on a patient's sobriety. We are so proud of our daughter as she is now many months sober, has found a like-minded community of friends and is busy making her life her top priority. We realize she could not have done this alone and we thank John Templeton’s Footprints Beachside Recovery and his entire staff profusely. How can words express our gratitude and appreciation for my beloved child finding the right place, with the right staff, and ultimately in good physical and mental health!! It's been an absolutely life changing experience for my entire family. I used to think my daughter was happy, i was fooling myself, now she is happy and you can see and enjoy the difference.

I don't find one family session every 30 days as acceptable when claiming family therapy on your website. Additionally, Footprints Beachside has yet to correct incorrectly billing my insurance and when you ask to speak to anyone in billing, your not allowed to speak to them. Not happy with the lack of communication on many levels.

Footprints Beachside Recovery and all of their staff saved my life and led me to a path of sobriety that saved my family. The staff, from the counselors to the house managers, are professional and truly care about their clients. They put the clients above all else and will do everything they can to help you succeed. The facilities and surrounding beaches are beautiful. The location is walking distance to the beach and the house is clean. They balance the restrictions required to ensure that the clients don't relapse and the freedom needed to help you learn how to make wise choices on your own really well. Most importantly the program works. I have my joy back and my wife and kids have their husband and father back. If you are looking for a rehab facility I couldn't recommend Footprints more. If you're looking to get clean and learn how to live a sober life this is the place to do it.

Footprints was a blessing to me. It saved my life!!! I came to Footprints broken and in pieces. I didn't know the meaning of happiness nor how to make other people happy. I couldn't stay sober and constantly found myself in hospitals and detoxes. I was losing everything that was important to me including myself. Footprints taught me how to live life again. Taking the substance away was one thing but working on myself was a whole other thing. They helped me look inward at the core problem instead of a quick fix. I tried other rehabs but they never seemed to work. Footprints was different with all different angles of therapy and activities. The staff is highly licensed and they understand what you are going through. I could go up to any one of them and they were willing to listen. I haven't been sober this long in a long time. I still have a long road ahead of me but I have a strong foundation because of Footprints!!! I recommend this place to anyone seeking a better life!!!

Footprints saved my life. I was an addict for almost 10 years and although I desperately wanted to stop, I had no tools to know how to I tried numerous times and ways on my own and nothing worked. Now after coming to footprints I have started getting my life back. This program has been a miracle ! The small family type atmosphere mixed with the best and most caring staff has made all the difference for me I am now working on five months sober and I'm repairing my life and relationships I never thought would be possible. If you or your family memeber has an addiction, please don't wait and try this program. It works in ways you never imagined. I owe my life to these people, God bless this program and you!

I cannot express enough how grateful and Blessed I have been to have come to Footprints Beachside Recovery!! The counselors are highly trained and use techniques in all aspects of life to lead you to recovery!! From group sessions involving expressive art therapy; yoga; acupuncture; massage therapy; board certified doctor; men's and woman's programs; one-on-one therapists; trauma informed care; family therapy; 12 step programs; relapse prevention; and the list goes on!! The owners truly care about recovery for anyone who walks through these doors and will go out of their way to ensure your progress to healing, learning, and living a sober Iife!!! I don't know where I would have ended up had I not come here!! Doing intensive inpatient, then transitioning to outpatient and going back into the real world through this process has truly saved my life!! Don't make a mistake and go somewhere else if you want to recover from your addictions.... Footprints has all the tools and living facilities to get you there with Pride!! I will always hold a place in my heart for them and walk away the strongest woman I have ever been, confident that I will never relapse again!!! God Bless Footprints Beachside Recovery!!!!

This is a great place with people that really care about the people seeking treatment. We sent a loved one to footprints and had a great experience with great results. John devoted so much time to our family before anyone even stepped foot in the door and our loved one has come out of treatment as a new person!

When I finally decided I needed to come to a treatment center I was referred here by a former client and I was excited to leave my hometown and come to the beautiful beaches in Treasure Island. But the longer I was here I was shown more that. Footprints staff showed me that there are still beautiful people in this world. They took me in and cared and loved me until I learned to love myself. Being able to see that there are people that are still like that in the world was the most rewarding thing I got out of treatment and I will forever be grateful for them pulling me out of the darkness and guiding me through the light. I love all of you and all of them have a special place in my heart for the rest of my life.

Footprints Beach-side Recovery Center is absolutely the best facility i have ever heard of or been too. I have suffered from addiction for a couple of years now. I have been to 5 different rehab facility's. THERE IS NO FACILITY THAT COMPARES! I was so surprised at how much the staff ALL the staff cared about there clients. They dig deep down into the problem. This place has changed my views and life, this facility has saved my life and i highly recommend it to anybody suffering from addiction or alcoholism or any other kind of addiction. They treat it all. They dug down to my underlining problem. I was well taken care of medically physically and emotionally. the facility has a small number of clients so that they can work with there clients 1 on 1. This facility is very consistent, organized, and reliable. 5 stars thank you so much staff for your continued support and help.
