ABOUT HOUSE OF HOPE –– SALT LAKE CITY
House of Hope – Salt Lake City provides behavioral health services to women to help them rebuild their lives and strengthen their families. As such, the center treats women and mothers who are struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders through residential care, day treatment, and outpatient programming.
Established in 1946, the organization, which served more than 400 families last year, operates seven facilities in total, including another program in Provo, Utah. Within the state, House of Hope – Salt Lake City is one of 58 (24.3 percent) substance abuse treatment facilities in Utah operating as a private nonprofit, one of 65 (27.2 percent) that provides residential services, and one of 124 (51.9 percent) Utah treatment facilities with specially tailored programs for adult women.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
House of Hope does not provide detox services. To be admitted, all clients must be free of drugs and alcohol for 72 hours, free of opiates for seven days, and free of benzodiazepines (e.g., Xanax and Valium) for 14 days. Prospective clients also must undergo a TB test and a general health screening prior to beginning treatment.
The treatment philosophy is based on the biopsychosocial model of addiction, which views addiction as a chronic disease. Programming draws upon 12-Step, which is used by 66.1 percent of Utah treatment facilities, and also includes a variety of treatment modalities, including group counseling, individual therapy, family counseling, and substance abuse education.
Workshops address parenting skills, relapse prevention, anger and stress management, and healthy living activities. Treatment also includes case management, and the length of stay in the residential programs depends on each client’s needs.
For the children of participating mothers, the Hope Center for Children offers programming that provides a structured therapeutic environment for children. Under the guidance of a case manager and a therapist, children are taught to self-regulate their emotions and engage in creative expression.
At the end of residential treatment, House of Hope’s aftercare and recovery support services help clients return to their daily lives. Clients may also may transition to the center’s day treatment or intensive outpatient program (IOP), which are conducted Monday through Friday.
At House of Hope, the treatment team includes substance abuse counselors, therapists, case managers, aftercare coordinators, and support staff. To date, the seven individuals polled on the matter by Rehabs.com offered mixed opinions concerning the facility's staff.

MI am truely grateful for this program. I did the hard work and found myself , got m childrn back . I completed residential and Day treatment i had the most caring team the whole year i was here. I gained skills to be successful and i m so thankful.
MMHouse of Hope staff does not follow through with nothing. They have a therapist who does not care about the clients. The case manager do all the work. The bosses suck and only show up for trouble. Go to another place where you can get help.
K.FHouse of Hope is a waste of time and money if you want to help your loved ones Odyessy house is the program you want to go to forget the one that doesn't work (house of hope) .
AnonymousTreatment is an invidual responsibility. Some staff were knowledgeable. Most were not. Clean. Everything else minus a couple of staff members.
AnonymousVery great program. Comfortable, trusting, effective. This specific treatment center is kind of far from our home so after treatment is over it's hard to stay in touch.
JPthis was one of the worst experiences with a treatment facility I have ever had I was court-ordered to the House of Hope unfortunately my case worker with probation wouldn't give me any other options but the House of Hope due to the fact that they have a special contract with them. All of the higher levels we're breaking rules had cell phones e-cigarettes my big sister who's supposed to teach you the rules just kind of left me sitting half the time I was standing around not knowing where I was supposed to be or what I should be doing I decided to leave through my ex boyfriend when he was notified by the staff I found out that you had eight days that they would hold your bed I tried getting back into the house of hope to be in compliance with court but my case manager and I don't see eye-to-eye and was not responding to make that worse neither did the House of Hope I emailed I called daily I showed up and they never seem to have time for me I'm an odyssey house graduate I would prefer Odyssey House over how many day they have the buddy system your buddy doesn't leave your side for the first few days so you learn the rulesat the House of Hope I stop by myself I felt discouraged everything was about parenting and I'm not able to get my daughter back this was definitely not the place for me and I had a horrible experience
KBThis place is a joke. They're outlined treatment plans don't work and many of the women that go there are repeat clients. They don't hold to their disciplinary statues, they don't care about personal growth, they're a revolving door. Treatment plans are set to last 6 months to 1 year but most women are out after 2-3 months and aren't held to any outlining program details. They have little if no regard to clients families and no real intention on permanently helping clients...again a revolving door....I would stay far away from this place if you want real treatment DO NOT GO HERE!!!!
RondaHouse of hope!! renamed the HOUSE OF NO HOPE
AnonymousAuthority and accommodations were strengths of the facility. However, it was costly. They are loving yet firm.
Anonymousthey were less expensive and had immediate openings. staff didn't seem as skilled or experienced, really basic, no extra offerings, food was really poor. rather than just reading online reviews (which we did since we were out of state), go visit treatment facilities, and really take time to look around and see everything first - that would make a huge difference.
CynthiaGreat staff. However, it is not faith based. It is great. Thourough thought restructure.
SBHOH (House of Hope) is am amazing place for those wanting help. There is always someone there 24/7 if you need them treatment staff, house staff, etc. the day care facility does wonders with kids They teach you everything you need to be self sufficient within your daily life. The staff is the best It's great for women with children
CPHelped me get clean.
