Project Hope Recovery Center Philosophy

This faith-based residential program assists individuals in recovering from drug and alcohol addiction and the life-controlling problems associated with it. In addition, residents work on overcoming rebellion and the self-destructive behaviors associated with their substance abuse and developing positive life skills. Residents participate in spiritual growth activities, individual counseling, and various outreaches.

Areas of Specialization

  • Eating Disorder Treatment
    Many mental health professionals view eating disorders (including anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder, along with other dysfunctional eating patterns) as a food addiction – in that food is used in ways other than as fuel or a source of pleasure. Some, but not all, addiction treatment programs include eating disorder treatment as part of the service menu. Also, an eating disorder may be a dual-diagnosis or a co-occurring disorder with drug or alcohol addiction.

  • Individual Therapy
    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

Facility Highlights

FREE care, no insurance - no monthly payments.

Helping Men and Women that struggle with addiction, depression, abuse or any life-controlling problems.

Residential Christian Recovery Program 360 Guide

Review by Contributors


Located in Houston, Tex., Project Hope Recovery Center offers a long-term, faith-based residential program for adult men and women struggling with addiction. The rehab, which puts a heavy emphasis on living a Christian lifestyle, promotes itself as “a place where people experience recovery from any kind of addiction.”

As such, it offers treatment for multiple addictions, including substance abuse, overeating, stress, sex, and anger. The organization operates a similar program across the country – Project Hope Florida. Detox is not offered on-site. In Texas, Project Hope Recovery Center is among 43.4 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities that are private nonprofit and among 21.8 percent that provide long-term, non-hospital residential care.


To be admitted to Project Hope Recovery Center, clients must pay a $1,000 non-refundable induction fee, desire to change and receive instruction, and commit to at least one year to complete the program. The facility does not accept residents who are taking psychotropic medications and notes that treatment is Christian residential rather than a medical, psychiatric, or psychological program.

According to the facility’s website, the curriculum combines Teen Challenge International’s Group Studies for New Christians (GSNC) with biblical homework and study. Each resident is assigned a mentor, who is in recovery. The average length of treatment is 14 months; however, it could run between 12 and 18 months.

Clients should expect to have a full schedule, starting in the morning with Bible reading, prayer, chores, and mentoring. In the afternoon, residents engage in vocational training and work. Evenings include recreational activities as well as mentoring sessions, Bible study, and fellowship.

In Project Hope Recovery Center's work-study program, residents do administrative work, kitchen clean-up, laundry, janitorial duties, maintenance projects, and woodworking. Vocational activities include working in the “Store Front” and fundraising. The program is designed to help residents learn responsibility, life skills, and the importance of serving others.

Within the state, Project Hope Recovery Center is among 45.2 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities with programs for adult men and among 48 percent with programs for adult women.


The fascility's website notes the treatment team includes interns and staff who have graduated from Teen Challenge or the center’s own residential program and work as mentors.


The organization provides scant details about its living arrangements and related offerings. After residents are in the program for 14 days, they may receive one family visit per month on Sundays and can make phone calls. After 90 days, clients may receive an eight-hour day pass to spend with immediate family on the last Sunday of the month after church, pending approval by the program director.

Project hope is a joke. I was doing at least 60 hours a week every week. The food is horrible the staff doesn't care about your needs its basically Jesus can fix everything as long you work for us if anyone does want to leave they at least try and pressure you to stay they actually called my family and told them to block my number and not talk to me. They just wanted me to be stuck in Florida so I'd have to come back. Its just not an option to these people that they're program isn't gonna be for everyone but the more people they have the more crews they send out the more money they make please is you love someone don't send them here they will be miserable and angry the whole time they are there I would've rather done my time in jail

This place should be shut down. They don't do therapy they throw they're religion on you and say everything can be fixed by Jesus. If you have medical issues, they don't care, and kick you out on the street. They try and make you straight. All you do is fundraise and work at a nasty re sell shop. When I was there about 86% leave and relapse or go somewhere else. You spend your day madly cleaning. You live with up to 20+ women in one house. You read the Bible and memorize versus then work. You travel 4 days a week to different states and stand in the hot, rain, snow and basically beg people who are just trying to shop for money. The food is crap and unhealthy. You don't get exercise because there is no time. You pray in silence and eat in silence. Most staff are rude and they love to post pictures of how much money you made per weekend. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. Should be shut down. Plus that many women in one house, I don't think they are licensed for that. Think about ANY OTHER OPTION. This place leads to more addictions and trauma and depression

Completely Free! Not able to take people on certain medications. Every staff member at Project Hope has a heart to see people receive freedom from addictions. Each staff member has themselves been delivered from addiction and that definitely helps in guiding someone else and knowing what to look for and how to help.

God used Project Hope to deliver two of my children from the evil of drug addiction. There are no words to express my thanks and joy. My family has been restored!


I\'m so thankful for the day i stepped in to project hope. The team here was able to show me the love of God and teach me how to build a relationship with God. I\'m a staff member here now and have been clean and living for the Lord a year and nine months now. The things I was taught as a student here I will carry and use the rest of my life. I can honestly say now that I\'m a productive member of society and a frontline soldier in the Lord\'s army.
