We are more than sober living or a “half-way” house. The residential component of the Hope Homes program is important – we provide our residents with safe, comfortable home environments and a supportive, recovery-focused peer group. However, the aspect of the Hope Homes program that differentiates us from many sober living homes is our professional life-skill counselors and the many support services they provide to our residents.
Counselors live on-site and are available to residents 24 hours a day. They provide one-on-one sessions, 12 Step meeting support, in-house support groups, life skill development, employment/education guidance, dual diagnosis support, fellowship activities, and family support. Counselors collaborate with each resident’s recovery support system, including referring treatment centers and continuing care service providers. Our counselors also conduct frequent, random drug screening to ensure the safety of our communities.
At Hope Homes, our focus is not only on helping our residents maintain and strengthen their recovery, but also on becoming productive members of a community. Our graduates leave Hope Homes with a strong foundation in the outside recovery community and a solid understanding of the skills that are necessary to live a productive life in recovery.
