There is Hope
Since 1974, Hope House has been a supportive, controlled, transitional living residence for
men with alcohol or drug related problems. When a person is addicted to alcohol or drugs,
what they need is not another drink, pill, or fix, but hope. Hope is breaking the cycle of
substance abuse and experiencing recovery in life. This is not only recovery from substance
abuse, but also regaining of relationships, improving self-esteem, and renewing enthusiasm for
living. It is our mission to expose our residents to the various components of a healthy
lifestyle. Through our program residents will learn to balance work, rest, relationships, and
recreation in a functional, clean and sober manner.
Hope House is a Home
While at Hope House residents are expected to take an active part in their home and their
recovery by putting recovery skills to practical use in everyday life. Residents are expected to
take an active role in taking care of the house grounds, assisting with chores, and following
the house program. Such activities encourage the development of meaningful relationships
between housemates, and generally promote an environment rich in support and teamwork.
The residents also attend daily AA/NA meetings, both on site and off as schedules permit.
Peer support is available on a daily basis. Residents are encouraged and required to seek and
maintain employment as soon as they are ready and able to work.
A Personal Approach
We pride ourselves on our individualized approach and we are able to tailor each clients
program to his specific needs. This may include individual, group, and family counseling as
well as anger management. Case management services will assist the residents with the job
search process, those seeking their G.E.D., budgeting and time management, and assisting
with arrangements for free or low cost health and dental care.
