Since opening our doors, we have learned a lot. We believe we have a responsibility to share this knowledge with other organizations who also serve those in recovery from substance use disorder. That’s why we now offer the FTR Certification Program. 

The goal of the FTR Certification Program is to provide our complete FTR model and the benefits of offering our evidence-based curriculum (i.e. Four Pillars) to those in recovery. FTR Certificate Participants will be trained in how to properly and productively apply the FTR model. 

We understand that, like us, other organizations may pick one pillar and then later in their development decide which other pillars fit the needs of their communities. With that in mind, other organizations can select a single pillar to evaluate more fully. Based on their experience, they can then decide whether to broaden their service offerings through additional training and certification.

The Certification Program requires attending a 2-day workshop and completing a written and demonstration exam.

The 2-day workshop is $2,000 per person.

Trauma is often the gateway to addiction. Our Advanced Substance Use Disorder Counselor and Lead Fitness Trainer will teach you how trauma impacts those in recovery and how to successfully strength train without triggering traumatic events.


Connection is the opposite of isolation, which is what most addicts do while in active addiction. We will teach you how safety and connection go hand-in-hand when creating a community for people in recovery.


Accountability means being true about being yourself, being authentic, and staying true to your word. It empowers you to be better as an individual. Sometimes those new to recovery only have their word and they must be encouraged to stand by it. We will teach you how to hold individuals in recovery accountable of their actions and words.


Empowerment is the process of becoming stronger and more confident. Individuals with substance use disorder have been through a lot- shame, trauma, inadequacy, fear, rejection. Thus, it is important that people feel safe enough to be themselves and take risks, be willing to change, be willing to share, be willing to be vulnerable and be willing to be part of a community. We will teach you how to empower those in recovery through strength and community.


Nutrition is more than counting calories. It’s about establishing a healthy relationship with food in a population that doesn’t have one. Research supports adopting a balanced and healthy diet, replenishing nutrient deficiencies, and promoting a healthy relationship with food, are vital components in long-term recovery. Our Registered Dietician will teach you how to help people recognize the importance of proper nutrition during recovery.


Creativity is a powerful outlet for many in recovery. Our Creative Arts Pillar spans a wide spectrum of expressive voices, instrument choices, and storytelling/song writing skills. They “speak” for themselves, for FTR, and represent the remarkable creativity that exists in individuals challenged by substance use disorders. Our Music Therapist will teach you how to provide a safe place that allows creativity to flow free of judgement.


Service is a valuable way for people in recovery to give back to the greater community. Giving back gives individuals a sense of place and ownership. Our Community Service Pillar Lead will teach you how to implement safe community service projects for those in recovery.
