Valley Hope Philosophy

Valley Hope’s 70-bed treatment center in Cushing, OK, is located midway between Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Housed in a stately mansion on a large acreage overlooking the city of Cushing, the center provides a rural, relaxed setting to ensure a comfortable atmosphere for healing. Much of the architecture and structure of the mansion remain as they did in the late 1920’s with limited renovations which simply enhanced the grounds even more for those seeking treatment.

Areas of Specialization

  • Family Program
    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

  • Individualized Treatment
    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.

ABOUT VALLEY HOPE – CUSHING

Valley Hope began operations in Kansas in 1967 and now has 16 locations throughout the Midwest. Located between Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Valley Hope in Cushing offers residential substance abuse treatment for adult men and women ages 18 and older. Medically monitored detoxification services and family care are also available on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

All clients are assessed when they arrive for treatment — the facility uses the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Patient Placement Criteria to determine admission.

Treatment programs are individualized, and length of stay varies for each client. Most stay between 17 and 30 days and receive more than 40 hours of clinical treatment per week, including individual counseling, group therapy, family and couples counseling, spiritual counseling, addiction education, and 12-step work. Residents are also taken to local Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings off-site.

Some clients receive medication assisted therapy (MAT), which combines behavioral therapy with medication designed to help ease withdrawal symptoms, usually from opiate-based drugs.

A big emphasis is placed on family at Valley Hope. Family programs include specialized small groups, educational lectures, and individual counseling sessions. Family members are also given access to an online, anonymous forum where they may share feelings about their loved ones' experiences with treatment, as well as get information about the correlation between addiction and family dynamics.

Intensive outpatient (IOP) programs and continuing care are available through other locations in the network, which may consist of between one and nine hours weekly of similar programming.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Staff consists of counselors, chaplains, physicians, nurses, and psychologists.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

The facility can accommodate up to 72 residents, all of whom live in the center’s large, family-style brick mansion. Every client has a roommate. There are no private rooms available. The 18 alumni who responded to Rehabs.com about the facility’s accommodations and meals at the time of this writing awarded Valley Hope average ratings of 4.61 out of five and 4.5 stars, respectively.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Alumni reviews for Valley Hope Cushing are highly positive. Most former clients liked the rehab’s no-frills, 12-step approach. More than a dozen alumni polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave the facility mostly four or five out of five stars for all 15 aspects of the program they evaluated, and agreed that the rehab offered a supportive staff, effective coping skills for maintaining long-term sobriety, and a compassionate environment. M.R. told Rehabs.com that it was "like being with family... the atmosphere was very healing and cheerful."

The only consistent complaint was the need for more holistic and extracurricular activities: the 11 alumni who evaluated the facility's holistic offerings gave it a below-average rating of 2.55 out of five stars.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

Seven of the eight loved ones polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing had high praise for the facility. They cited the compassionate, nonjudgmental treatment toward both clients and loved ones as a major strength. "The councilors would walk around during free time and if they saw a patient or family member struggling with emotions or each other, they would try to talk to them and help them figure out the problem,” a family member named L.M.R. told Rehabs.com.

The staff’s level of experience earned 4.4 out of five stars from five reviewers polled on the subject, and the family involvement offered by the program received a near-perfect, 4.75 stars from eight ratings.

One anonymous Rehabs.com reviewer complained that the program lacked focus on mental health issues and gave Valley Hope Cushing just two stars for its treatment effectiveness. The reviewer remained neutral when asked if they would recommend the facility.

FINANCING

According to the facility’s website, Valley Hope accepts most major insurance plans, but does not accept Medicare of Medicaid. Additionally, Valley Hope offers scholarships to those who qualify.

This facility allows its patients the freedom to leave daily, any visitor can visit, and outside communication is free. Thus, it doesn't feel like a psych ward or jail. His facility has a physician that only comes once per week and has a medical detox unit. I saw a physician once for less than 20 minutes. He preserved me a lot of medications that I had never been prescribed. I was found unresponsive, had a seizure, and by the time I had some awareness when the ambulance arrived my blood pressure was 54/52. They continued to try to administer the same medications that caused this. I checked myself out on the sixth day. I didn't eat for two days because no one brought food or woke me up for mealtimes. In six days, my room and linens were never cleaned, the trash was overflowing, and the facility was old and run down. Aside from 12 step classes, there is no recreational activities. Anyone off the street can walk in so there is no security. I have been denied my own medical records since I left. Valley Hope warehouses people, over medicates them, and collects insurance and private pay dollars. If you want your loved one to come home in a body bag send them here. IF NOT STAY AWAY!!! This facility is old and in need of cleaning and repair. There is nothing to do for recreational activities, and their Physician is only there once per week. I almost died due to their overmedicating me. The indignant treatment post their negligent conduct is unconchenable. There are much nicer and better treatment facilities. Spend your money elsewhere!!

They are willing to assist and are friendly, compassionate, and nonjudgmental. However, it is expensive and few people are able to attend, They need to expand the insurance acceptance policies. They have a lot of group and one on one therapy which is important. Have many sources of support upon discharge. Very good at teaching coping skills and teaching tools to help u succeed when u leave treatment the staff is very knowledgeable.

Small faculty, friendly, and homey feeling. However, there was a lack of focusing on causes of addiction (anxiety, depression, bipolar etc.).

This program was like being with family. Staff and clients included. The atmosphere was very healing and cheerful. Trust was given until a reason to not trust was shown. A client could leave campus for 2 hours with family or another client after the initial 72 hours detox time. Smoking was allowed. It was a wonderful program.

Valley Hope worked for me. Its program in based on the 12 steps. The facilities are clean and comfortable. Don't expect a luxury resort. The staff are professional and caring. The counselors are awesome. The treatment was effective. I probably owe my life to Valley Hope.
