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.
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.

ABOUT PROJECT HOPE RECOVERY CENTER
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.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
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.
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.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
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.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Five alumni who submitted reviews of Project Hope Recovery Center to Rehabs.com at the time of this writing presented conflicting views: three were extremely positive, two were very negative. Satisfied alumni awarded perfect five or four out of five stars to the major categories of treatment effectiveness, accommodations and amenities, and meals and nutrition, and expressed thanks for the results achieved, caring staff members who had battled addiction, and low cost.
Offering perfect five-star ratings for the facility's level of family participation and likeliness they'd recommend the facility to others, one anonymous former client wrote: "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." However, negative comments from alumni concerned heavy workload, uncaring staff, overcrowded living conditions, and lack of treatment therapy.
On the facility’s Facebook page, which the organization may manage, reviewers (alumni, loved ones, staff, and others) offered highly positive impressions about their experience with the facility: 4.8 out of five stars based on 43 posts.  Alumni credited the rehab with changing their life and offering spiritual renewal. “The things I learned in the program changed my life.
