Our Treatment Facility
What to Expect at Footprints to Recovery
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Clients in our partial hospitalization program attend treatment 4 to 6 hours a day, 5 days a week. Programming includes individual therapy sessions, group therapy, experiential approaches, and addiction education. Our PHP program provides structure and support while giving clients the ability to live at home or in a sober living residence.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP)
Our IOP in New Jersey provides clients with 9 to 15 hours of addiction treatment per week. Clients attend groups and participate in individual therapy. IOP can serve as a step down from an inpatient or PHP program, or it can be a good option for clients who don’t require a higher level of care.
Clients in our outpatient addiction program attend treatment 3 hours per day, 1 to 2 days per week. This program eases the transition back into everyday life, providing a safe space to talk about real-world triggers and maintain accountability and support in recovery.

“Footprints cares!!! Their family support group has changed my relationship with my daughter in beautiful ways that allow us to support one another without giving up our own sanity. Addiction tears at the fibers of the family. There’s no magic wand, but it’s encouraging to know that my daughter will always have her Footprints people; and I will, too!”
