Hope House Treatment Center Philosophy
At Hope House, individuals struggling with addiction are met with compassionate, confidential care that fits to each person’s individual needs and situation. For those in need of withdrawal assistance, Hope House offers detoxification services outside of a traditional hospital setting. For those in need of residential treatment, Hope House offers an intensive two to four week inpatient program, providing medical stabilization, psychiatric evaluation, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and medication as needed. Individuals requiring outpatient services are invited to partake in Hope House’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) as well.
Areas of Specialization
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
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.
