What to Expect at Footprints to Recovery

A quick drive from Denver, Footprints to Recovery in Centennial, CO provides a safe, accepting space where clients address the root causes of drug and alcohol abuse. Addiction treatment is trauma-focused and evidence-based. A blend of traditional, alternative, and experiential approaches ensures clients address the physical, mental, and emotional wounds of addiction.

Our clinicians are highly credentialed addiction and mental health professionals who are passionate about clients’ recovery. Many are trained in trauma therapies and other approaches that are effective in getting to the root causes of addiction. Clients learn to change the thought and behavioral patterns that fuel addiction and begin repairing the physical and spiritual wounds of substance abuse.

Treatment Programs

Levels of care at our Colorado rehab include:

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Our PHP program is a good option for people who require the structure and support of a residential treatment program but prefer to live at their own home or in a sober living residence. PHP can also serve as a step-down program between inpatient and outpatient programs. Clients in our Colorado partial hospitalization program attend treatment 6 hours per day, 5 days a week.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Clients who’ve attended residential treatment or a partial hospitalization program can benefit from an intensive outpatient program while transitioning back into everyday life. Our intensive outpatient program provides the flexibility to attend treatment during the day or in the evenings. Clients meet for 3 hours a day, 3 or 5 times a week.

Outpatient Program
Our outpatient program near Denver offers treatment 1 to 2 days every week for 3 hours each day. This level of care allows clients to maintain a family and work schedule while getting regular support in their recovery.

Military Programming
We offer a closed group for clients that have retired from the military. Using cognitive processing therapy (CPT), we help clients examine traumatic military or combat-related events, identify “stuck points,” and challenge those unhelpful beliefs about the trauma to decrease PTSD-related symptoms. Clients do not engage in exposure therapy when using CPT but learn more about trauma and PTSD symptoms, how they have become stuck by certain thoughts, and healthier ways to cope with the emotions related to a traumatic event.

Therapies

We use a combination of traditional and experiential therapies that include:

Colorado Leadership

Jenna Richer

Jenna Richer, LCSW

Executive Director Colorado

Jenna Richer received her Master’s degree in Social Work (MSW) in 2002 from Smith College School for Social Work in Northampton, Massachusetts, and became a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in 2007. A native of Los Angeles, California, Jenna’s clinical experience includes working with individuals experiencing homelessness, severe and persistent mental illness, and co-occurring substance use disorders. Jenna created and managed several intensive, field-based programs providing 24/7 services to these individuals through the LA County Department of Mental Health (DMH) and Veterans Administration (VA), using the “Housing First” and harm-reduction models.

After moving to Denver, Colorado in 2015, Jenna brought her experience with, knowledge of, and passion for homelessness, mental health, and addiction to the Colorado Office of Behavioral Health (OBH), where she worked with the state securing SAMHSA grants for providers of mental health, co-occurring, and housing services.

Prior to her current role as Executive Director at Footprints to Recovery, Jenna served as the Division Director for Housing and Homelessness programs through Family Tree, working with local officials, city and county leaders, housing developers, and numerous state and county grants to implement Permanent Supportive Housing programs, which included field-based, mental health, and addiction services on site to assist in ending homelessness in Colorado.

Laurie Woodard

Laurie Woodard, MA, LPCC, NCC

Clinical Director Colorado

Laurie has been with Footprints to Recovery since 2019. She oversees all staff at our Colorado location including supervision as well as group scheduling, client concerns, and chart reviews. Laurie earned a master’s in counseling from Regis University. She is a licensed professional counselor (LPC), a licensed addiction counselor (LAC), and is trained in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and Brainspotting. Prior to joining Footprints to Recovery, Laurie worked in supervisory positions with youth and adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders.

Laurie got into this work because substance abuse and mental health disorders have been prevalent in her family, and while she wanted to avoid dealing with those hard truths for a while, the experience has allowed her to empathetically help others that are struggling. Laurie says what she finds most rewarding about her work is seeing the growth in others, though they may not be able to see it within themselves right away.

“This place is amazing. The staff is caring and will do everything they can to help you. Im still attending classes and staying in housing here.”
