Footprints Beachside Recovery Center

Footprints Beachside Recovery Center Treasure Island Florida

Substance abuse has biological, psychological and social causes, and effective drug and alcohol treatment should attempt to provide a response to each of these areas designed for the individual client. There is no “one size fits all” in effective drug treatment programs; the therapeutic response must be oriented to a client’s specific configuration of needs with a range of “wrap around” drug treatment programs. Many other high-end drug treatment centers are rooted in outdated methods that often fail to keep people drug-free. People with a chronic form of addiction need multi-modal treatment that is individualized and offered continuously or intermittently for as long as they need.

Just treating the substance abuse is not enough. Footprints utilizes unique, proven drug and alcohol treatment methods to treat the factors that underlie addiction and set off relapse. Whether it is past trauma, anxiety, depression, bi-polar, self-esteem issues; Footprints treats each individual with a personalized substance abuse treatment plan, created just for you.

REVIEWS

At the time of this writing there has been one family member polled by Best-rehabs.com. The mother of a former client, L.G., left a very positive review. She gave the facility five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, accommodations & amenities, and meals & nutrition. The mother strongly agreed that the facility strictly followed a 12-step model offered a faith-based program; that family and loved ones were able to participate in treatment through facility programming; and that the treatment plan was affordable, worth the cost, and/or payment plans, scholarships, or financial assistance were made available. She also indicated that there were many counseling options to choose from depending on the client’s preference and that the facility was adequately equipped and staffed to treat co-occurring mental health problems in addition to substance use disorders.

She felt that a strength of the facility was the staff and wrote, “My son made real connections with staff and other residents and continues to network with all of them. My son has even decided that he wants to become certified to work in a rehab facility so that he might help others the way he has been helped.” She did not identify any weakness of the facility and also added “The program really helped my son to grow up and be accountable for his actions. He learned so much about himself and how his addiction impacted others in his life. He stopped blaming others and accepted responsibility for his addition, the lies and the pain we endured as a family. I feel my son has a roadmap for how to live drug free.”

On the facility’s Facebook page, which it can manage, there is an overall rating of 4.8 out of five stars based on 26 total reviews.[1] Alum C.L. who gave five stars, spoke highly of the facility. He wrote “This place helped me tremendously. It not only helped me to address my addiction but helped me get to root of my problem. The staff is very professional and they understand what you are going through. It is a very individualized program in a comfortable setting. I would not be sober if it wasn’t for Footprints. I recommend this place for anyone struggling with addiction.” Another alum, A.B., did not speak as highly of the facility. She gave one star and wrote “Broke hippa laws, cares only about money, will tell you almost anything to get you in the door to make money. Will force you to stay longer by telling you they will let you go, but you will be leaving “Against Medical Advice” (AMA) to keep you longer because most of the time insurance will not pay if you leave AMA so you will be stuck with the bill, generally forcing the client to stay.”

FINANCING

The cost of treatment at the facility is not published. The facility accepts most private insurance plans including Humana, United Healthcare, Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Cigna among many others.[2]

  • I have been through my fair share of substance abuse treatment over the years. 4 inpatient stays as well as three IOPs. Footprints was hands down the best. It was wasn't the fanciest or most well known place I went to but that is what makes this place special. It is an intimate setting with an unbelievable staff. They made me feel like I was part of a family from day one. They went above and beyond the call of duty. The Clinical Director was amazing. She actually listened to you and designed a program that she thought would be most beneficial to you. It was individualized which is rare. I spent 90 days total at Footprints and have been sober for almost nine months. If you know anyone that needs help Footprints is the place to go.

  • The staff were patient with my son as he worked through the 12-steps. The fact that the program is faith based meant the world to my family. My son made real connections with staff and other residents and continues to network with all of them. My son has even decided that he wants to become certified to work in a rehab facility so that he might help others the way he has been helped. My son was pleased with all of that the facility offered. The program really helped my son to grow up and be accountable for his actions. He learned so much about himself and how his addiction impacted others in his life. He stopped blaming others and accepted responsibility for his addition, the lies and the pain we endured as a family. I feel my son has a roadmap for how to live drug free.

  • I cannot say enough! The folks who work there have to be the absolute best there is!!!!! I'm going to go all cliche and say they are miracle workers. I had abused alcohol for over a decade and couldn't quit on my own. These folks helped me to find the root of my issues and learn to accept them. The administrative staff is caring, kind and understanding of the clients' issues. The counselors are like the "Avengers" of counselors. They have real super powers! Seriously, each had thier own special way to connect with the clients. The instruction they gave was outstanding! I thought I knew it all with my degree in psychology but wow.... The knowledge imparted to me was staggering. I studied every night and tried to wrap my head around everything I had learned that day and apply it. I have never studied or applied myself to learning like I did at Footprints. The wholistic approach was the exact way to go for me. I needed to explore treatments and therapies I hadn't done before. A total eye opener! Please. Please! If you are questioning whether or not to choose this facility, just do it. This isn't sitting around in a circle listening to other peoples issues, which is the experience I had always had, this is "hands in the dirt" action to help you to make a difference in your life! I can't say enough about John and the crew. They helped me to take my life back and be able to enjoy the bejeezus out of my wife and boy again. I am indebted forever and thrilled about it. Just call them, please. Take your life back like I did. Probably the easiest and smartest decision you'll make today.............or ever.

  • I had only spent a couple of weeks in treatment yet in that short time I learned a tremendous amount about getting and staying sober not to mention about myself and others. I had also spent 10 days in detox and the facility recommended Footprints. The staff was excellent as were the clients. I wish everyone there the best as my thoughts are with you. I have continued meetings and help. Cant tell you how clear my mind is getting over a 3 week period. I would definitely recommend Footprints to the person who is looking to make a positive change in there lives. Thank You

  • I was very happy with my time at Footprints. I felt a sense of relief as soon as I got there since they're so welcoming and know what I was going through. Counselors Brian and Josh were extremely knowledgeable and taught me all about my disease and how to live with it. I'm very happy I chose Footprints for my recovery since most people I talk to in AA didn't have as good of an experience while getting sober. I currently have 170 days sober and have Footprints to thank for every one of them.

  • Footprints saved my life. Period. The staff became my family and made sure that we were all getting the best care possible. I celebrated my first sober birthday at Footprints. And now I'll be celebrating this birthday one year sober. It would not have been possible had I not went there.
