…Foothills Detox, two words that sum it up perfectly “Life Changing.” They have a winning formula that begins and ends with love. Walking in the doors they love you when you can’t love yourself when you won’t. You’re greeted with open arms and hearts; all the staff are caring and supportive. They make you better and help you find a suitable next step that will suit each individual. The food is gourmet, they definitely fatten you up. Health care is amazing.  I would take at vacation to this spot. It’s one of my favorite places in the world to be. Thank God for Foothills and their wonderful staff. This place changed my life. Forever grateful
