Areas of Specialization
Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

HOPEQUEST - THE TREK PROGRAM
Tucked away in the dense forests of Woodstock, Ga., 30 miles north of Atlanta, HopeQuest is a Christian ministry group that provides treatment services for adults struggling with chemical dependency, co-occurring mental health disorders, and sexual addiction. The organization’s TREK program, which stands for Transforming, Restoring, Establishing Kingdom Life, is a 12-week gender-specific residential program designed for adult men and women. Detoxification services are not available on-site, but clients with co-occurring disorders are accepted.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission, clients undergo a comprehensive assessment and evaluation to identify the severity of addiction and individual client needs. During the residential program, clients participate in psycho-educational lectures and process groups, as well as receive individual counseling on a weekly basis. Educational and process groups address a range of mental health issues, including PTSD, depression, and anxiety disorders, to promote a successful recovery. Recovery techniques taught include coping techniques and spiritual maturity. TREK provides gender-specific programming to also address issues common among men and women struggling with addiction. Sexual addiction groups are also held daily.
As a Christ-centered program, clients also participate in faith-based activities, such as spiritual groups, pastoral counseling sessions, Bible studies, and worship services. The program incorporates a “family workshop experience" during treatment, which involves family counseling and education.
Once a client completes the residential program, TREK provides a continuing care program. Transitional homes for men and women are also available. Although treatment is Christian-oriented, clients do not have to be Christian to enroll in treatment.
The Trek Program is licensed by the State of Georgia. The facility’s treatment team includes master's level licensed professional counselors (LPC), a clinical psychologist, a campus pastor, a licensed social worker, recovery technicians, clinical therapists, licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), certified alcohol and drug counselors (CADC), and certified sexual addiction therapist. According to the facility’s website, the TREK program boasts a staff-to-client ratio of 1:3.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Clients live in a home-like, country farmhouse-styled residences surrounded by 18 acres of wooded countryside. Comprised of a separate men’s and women’s house, the campus accommodates 15 men and six women. Wraparound porches encircle the main residence, and surrounding picnic tables provide outdoor seating for rest and reflection. Sleeping quarters are fully furnished and decorated. The campus also features jogging trails and volleyball courts. All clients are expected to perform household chores and help maintain the facility’s common areas.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The six alumni polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing praised most areas of the facility. The two alumni polled in 15 specific metrics rated HopeQuest highest in cleanliness and connectivity/visitor policy (a perfect five stars) and lowest in holistic treatment offerings (one gave only two stars and the other declined to rate the category). All six alumni on average rated the program's treatment effectiveness 4.8 out of five stars and its accommodations and amenities and its meals and nutrition both 4.3 stars.
Alumni praised HopeQuest for their **professional staff, particularly for helping alumni *understand root causes of their issues*. Offering perfect five-star ratings for the facility’s individual counseling and staff support, alum Samuel wrote: “It works if you work it! They get to the heart of the matter, not just the behavior.” Another anonymous alum agreed and offered a five-star rating for the facility’s ability to treat co-occurring disorders, writing: “I had questioned for years why I had chosen the behaviors that had dictated my life. After HopeQuest I have the answers…"
Secondary sources supported these positive opinions. On HopeQuest’s Facebook page, which the organization can manage, 46 reviewers offered an average rating of 4.8 out of five stars for the facility, with 44 positive reviews, one mixed, and just one negative. Reviewers tended to cite the facility’s staff and faith-based approach as strengths. Alum Ken wrote in a representative review: “God is working in this ministry. Tried several other centers and nothing worked. The councilors and staff are second to none."
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The sole loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date gave HopeQuest poor ratings of one out of five stars in every category measured. Loved one M.C. felt the program was misleading and did not provide adequate focus on substance abuse issues. They wrote: “I do not recommend.,it isn't explained by anyone on staff, but basically their focus is on sexual addictions; pornography addiction, and other types of sexual issues. You will be told that they treat drug and alcohol addictions, but my experience with a loved one in this area was terrible.”
HopeQuest accepts out-of-network insurance and offers financial assistance to every client. Costs of the treatment programs, transitional living, and continuing care services are not available.
