Valley Hope - Boonville Philosophy

Founded in 1981, the Boonville Valley Hope facility offers residential addiction treatment for men and women ages 16 and up. The facility takes a 12-step approach to recovery, and combines AA’s principles with psycho-educational and small-group counseling to give each client a solid foundation for long-lasting sobriety. Family support and education is also provided, as is a plan for continued care long after treatment is complete.

Areas of Specialization

  • Aftercare Support
    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

  • 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.

ABOUT VALLEY HOPE – BOONVILLE

Nonprofit Valley Hope operates 16 residential and outpatient treatment facilities spread throughout seven states. This center, founded in 1981 and located in central Missouri, midway between Kansas City and St. Louis, offers medical detox, residential treatment, and continuing care for adults ages 16 and older.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment uses the 12-Steps in a multidisciplinary program that aims to address clients’ physical, mental, social, and spiritual needs. Valley Hope follows the disease concept of addiction, and aims to provide compassionate, understanding care.

Valley Hope advises a 30-day stay in residential treatment, but allows for variation depending on the client’s needs. The average length of stay is 17 to 30 days.

Treatment begins with an assessment that includes a medical history and physical exam, nursing assessment, psychosocial history, and psychological screening. During residential treatment, clients receive over 40 hours of treatment a week, comprised of individual, group, and family counseling, plus education about the nature of addiction, pastoral sessions, and local, off-site 12-step meetings. Some clients receive medication-assisted therapy. Families are invited to educational sessions as well as small-group counseling, and online counseling is available for families that are unable to travel to the facility. A weekly meeting is held for alumni.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The center is staffed 24/7. According to Valley Hope’s website, staff across the organization includes counselors, chaplains, physicians, nurses, and psychologists. The Boonville team includes certified counselors.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Clients live on a wooded, eight-acre campus in semi-private, cottage-style housing around rolling hills.. Photos published on Valley Hope’s website indicate that there’s a chapel or prayer area on-site.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

At the time of this writing there are 10 alumni who were polled by Rehabs.com. Alumni gave particularly high ratings for the facility’s family programming and the staff’s level of training and experience, and in their comments they repeatedly praised the staff. “Very caring and understanding,” wrote alum Russell in a representative review. Reviewers were also very impressed with and grateful for the aftercare provisions. “My counselor has kept up with my progress and after a year clean you get to go back for a ceremony that celebrates your clean time. They really help you with an aftercare plan,” Allison told Rehabs.com.

Yet alumni also indicated a lack of extracurricular activities. Reviewers tended to give the facility lower ratings for its holistic options, and the few complaints received tended to cite factors such as “limited exercise options” or “too much down time.” One alum also objected to the “forced spirituality,” and C.H. described an unhappy experience with an “inept admissions person” in which they were turned away at the door.

B.D., who was 40 to 59 years when entering the facility, chose this rehab facility based on a personal choice, and entered rehab because of a family intervention. B.D. was treated for pain med addiction for 15 to 29 days. B.D. has been out of the facility for over 12 months, completed treatment successfully, and entered a sober living environment afterward.

B.D. gave the facility five out of five stars for accommodations & amenities, meals & nutrition, and leisure options. B.D. also gave the facility five stars for the quality of counseling overall, the quality of the lead counselor, and consistency of meetings. B.D. gave the facility five stars overall.

WHAT FRIENDS AND FAMILY SAY

There has been one family member that has been polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing. The anonymous loved one had a child who attended the facility. The loved one’s child stayed at the facility for 15 to 29 days and was treated for substance abuse. He played an active role in his child’s treatment and wrote that treatment benefited his child. He was not involved in helping finance his child’s treatment but did visit the client while he or she was in the facility. He gave the facility four stars overall.

WHAT STAFF SAY

There have been two staff members polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing. One staff member, M.B., is a current employee and has been working at the facility since 2015. M.B. has a Master’s degree, is a full-time staff member, and wrote that the facility is a private, for-profit organization. M.B. wrote that the facility follows a 12-step model and is an outpatient/IOP private pay treatment center. M.B. thinks very highly of the facility writing that the staff, quality of treatment, and affordability of care was first class. M.B. added additional commentary writing that the facility’s goal is to “meet patients where they are at and work with them to accomplish their goals for a happy, more fulfilling life, which no doubt includes sobriety.”

FINANCING

According to the facility’s website, Valley Hope is in-network with many insurance and managed-care providers — but it does not accept Medicare or Medicaid. A limited amount of patient aid is available, and payment plans can be arranged.

Its a facility that wants to help you, if your really ready to make a change in your addiction. Has a structured environment but a relaxed atmosphere to help with your steps toward recovery. I would Recommend it to anyone that needs help. Staff are very helpful.

I attended Valley Hope in 2006 and attempted to go again in 2015. Due to an inept admissions person I drove over two hours only to be turned away at the door. Drug and alcohol addiction is a life or death issue and when huge mistakes are made by staff it makes me question if the facility is equipped to deal with such a serious issue.

I thought it was great facility. It was clean, affordable and there was excellent family participation. However, there could have been more holistic options available.

There is way too much down time when there is lots of activities that could be offered. No access to television, phones, work out machines, etc.. was a downfall. However, despite this it was a wonderful treatment center.

Great program. Even has RN's administering medications. You rarely see this in tx. Most of the time it is simply a med. tech.

My counselor was very good at her job. The groups were led my the counselors rather than people that didn't have experience. Detox is good. Medication assisted treatment is available. They allow you to go to outside meetings & the meetings they go to are some of the best I have attended. The facility has a lot of outdoor area to walk around including woods in the back. You sleep in very nice cabins. When not in group there is always something going on with the clients, you get a very solid support network. You can smoke anytime(unless you are in group) There is a walmart nearby if you ever need anything like a toothbrush and you can have your own personal snacks, soda, and coffee. Valley hope offers a very personal experience. Its obvious they care about their clients which is different than most Tx places that see their clients a dollor signs rather than individual people. My counselor has kept up with my progress and after a year clean you get to go back for a ceremony that celebrates your clean time. They really help you with an aftercare plan, getting into a sober living house, and they have intensive outpatient in Booneville and St. Louis

I was very scared but they made me feel very comfortable. The staff were always available to discuss issues I was having. The group sessions were very helpful and counseling was great. Great people who work at Valley Hope, and most are recovering addicts/alcoholics as well.
