Footprints to Recovery is a new drug and alcohol treatment facility to open 20 miles east of Phoenix in Mesa, Arizona.
The facility has opened locations in three other states since it was founded in Chicago in 2013. Mesa’s Maricopa County will now be home to their fourth drug and alcohol treatment center to have acquired their license to open for 24 hours a day. Its official grand opening scheduled for June 13 but has already started accepting patients weeks prior.
The Mesa location is approximately 12,000 square feet with over two dozen beds in private and semi-private rooms, round-the-clock medical care, transportation at any time of day, one-on-one counseling with a licensed therapist, an attentive medical staff and a focus on behavioral health and mental stability.
Footprints to Recovery is affiliated with medical professionals, law enforcement and members of the community to deliver better substance abuse treatment for the people of Arizona. It offers medical detox and alternative forms of treatment ranging from yoga, acupuncture and chiropractic services. Every treatment plan is individually designed based on a patient’s needs.
Elliot Wolbrom, the chief marketing officer, has stated that the facility will be the largest and most updated drug and alcohol treatment in Mesa. He also mentions there are plans for further expansion naming Colorado and Massachusetts as contenders.
Wolbrom explained the process of choosing what location would be suitable for a new center and which markets to target.
“Our world-class clinicians study our clientele and seek out markets and locations where their advanced expertise would most benefit (and speak to) those in need,” he said. “Additionally, we look at national, state and local substance abuse and overdose data in an effort to bring our clinical expertise to a particular area where our care can be most impactful.”
Wolbrom has emphasized that detox is one of the primary focuses of Footprints the Recovery. As well as to provide a safe, clean, medically advanced and therapeutic environment for their clients to become well enough to achieve long-term recovery.
The goals for this drug and alcohol treatment center were summarized by Wolbrom, “Our objective, under the powerful leadership of our CEO, Hirsch Chinn, is simple: positively impact the crippling substance abuse statistics in the country, especially for those that are 18-35, by creating a movement where we place world-class clinical care and an outstanding client experience from start to finish.”
“We’ve been operational for just one week and have been privileged to provide completed detox treatment to nearly a dozen clients with more currently being treated and new clients being admitted,” he said.
