New Hope Recovery Center Philosophy
New Hope Recovery Center applies a client-centered approach to addiction treatment, providing both holistic and traditional evidenced-based therapies to individuals struggling with substance abuse. New Hope features a comprehensive range of addiction treatment services, offering both residential and intensive outpatient programs as well as aftercare support services for those who have successfully completed treatment. New Hope Recovery Center also offers an Emerging Adults Program, providing young adults ages 18-26 with the recovery resources and education they need to navigate the difficult transition into adulthood while maintaining their sobriety. New Hope recognizes the need for a specialized LGBTQI program, and therefore offers additional resources for members of the LGBTQI community struggling with addiction.
Areas of Specialization
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

ABOUT NEW HOPE RECOVERY CENTER
New Hope is a Chicago-based substance abuse treatment center for adult men and women. The facility offers a variety of services, including residential day treatment and an intensive outpatient program (IOP). There’s also a specialized LGBT addiction program, as well as aftercare options. Detox services are not provided on-site, however, the facility will help clients find appropriate care if medical assistance is needed.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Based on an initial in-person assessment, clients are referred to the appropriate program for treatment. The most intensive level of care offered is the residential day program, which puts participants up in local, gender-specific sober houses while they receive eight hours of treatment a day. Program lengths vary but tend to average between two and four weeks.
A typical schedule includes individual counseling, group therapy, addiction education, and recovery-based homework assignments and workshops on topics such as anger management, grief and loss, and coping skills. Clients also participate in 12-step orientation groups on campus and attend AA and/or NA meetings off-site.
Other activities include yoga, art therapy, adventure-based field trips, gender-specific process groups, and nutrition counseling.
The IOP offers similar programming for three hours either in the morning or evening. A weekly aftercare group is offered to clients who successfully complete either residential or outpatient treatment.
New Hope’s multi-disciplinary team includes a medical director and a board-certified psychiatrist, as well as licensed clinical social workers, licensed professional counselors, recreational therapists, and a licensed professional counselor.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The residential program provides gender-specific housing to its clients through three sober-living communities: Fresh Start, Bridges Sober Living, and Bridgehaus. All offer upscale living accommodations with modern amenities, including fully-equipped kitchens and TVs.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The one loved one polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave New Hope a mostly positive review, awarding the facility five-stars for its treatment effectiveness and four stars for its counseling options and its staff’s level of experience and training. The anonymous reviewer described the staff as “great” and told Rehabs.com that the “treatment plan was well thought out and followed.” Yet when it came to the facility’s family participation, the reviewer gave a three-star rating and noted a “lack of family input.”
In addition, YellowPages.com had received just one review at the time of this writing, and it was negative. The family member gave New Hope the lowest overall rating of one star and expressed concern over the facility’s supposedly gender-specific sober living homes. “I thought this place was about keeping families together which is why we chose it but that Is the furthest thing from the truth,” they wrote. “They have this dorms that are supposed to be girls in one guys in another but they r allowed to house hop whenever they feel free…This is supposed to be a controlled environment for healing not a place to allow cheating.”
According to the facility's website, New Hope Recovery Center accepts Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and many other private insurance plans, as well as many managed care plans. Yet the rehab points out that insurance companies often do not cover the full cost of treatment. As New Hope puts it: "In general, Residential Day Treatment (RDT) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Treatment services are covered by insurance while the actual residential living costs (room and board) are not."
