Areas of Specialization

  • 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.

  • Medical Detoxification
    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.

ABOUT THE HOPE HOUSE

One of 134 (39.3 percent) private for-profit facilities in the state of Arizona, The Hope House is a residential treatment program for adult men and women struggling with drug and alcohol addictions and co-occurring mental and behavioral health disorders. Located in Scottsdale, the self-described luxurious “yet affordable,” state-licensed 20-bed center offers short- and long-term substance abuse treatment using evidence-based, holistic programming and customized planning.

While Hope House does not offer any medical detoxification services, it is one of just 43 (12.6 percent) facilities in the state of Arizona that offer short-term, non-hospital residential treatment and one of 67 (19.6 percent) that offer non-hospital treatment that extends beyond 30 days.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment at Hope House is structured to meet each client’s specific needs. According to the center’s website, all clients begin the treatment process with a list of therapy options that, in addition to conventional methods, include yoga, massage, equine therapy, meditation, and family coaching. Residential treatment is available at intervals of 30, 60, or 90 days.

At its core, programming aims to help clients develop an awareness and practical understanding of how to apply the tools and skills needed to establish themselves in early recovery and maintain long-term sobriety. This being the case, in its effort to facilitate preparation for life, the Hope House program offers clients ample opportunity to connect with others and engage with the outside world. Programming also involves classes and activities that promote physical movement, healthy nutrition, and a full night’s sleep.

Throughout their stay, clients work with clinicians who specialized in evidence-based modalities such as mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior (DBT) therapies. Other approaches incorporated into treatment include the renowned Seeking Safety model and eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR), modalities designed to help individuals who’ve experienced any form of trauma. Family visitation and involvement is encouraged when and where appropriate.
