About Valley Hope
Valley Hope’s 70-bed treatment center in Cushing, OK, is located midway between Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Housed in a stately mansion on a large acreage overlooking the city of Cushing, the center provides a rural, relaxed setting to ensure a comfortable atmosphere for healing. Much of the architecture and structure of the mansion remain as they did in the late 1920’s with limited renovations which simply enhanced the grounds even more for those seeking treatment.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
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.

AnonymousFamily was included in treatment. Strong program.
AnonymousOur son was there for 6 wks. and he got treatment that he needed . When he was released he came out with a better out look on life. He had the tools to cope with his addiction . We spend one week going through the same treatment he did and we also had the tools to help us cope with addiction, We were very happy with the facility in the way they did the treatment. We were also happy with the results. The facility was kept clean. All the staff members were friendly , through, helpful and were there to help every one.
PaulI have been a patient at Valley Hope Cushing twice and when I relapsed I did not hesitate for a second on deciding where to go. When I got there the first time I was confused about what to expect and withdrawing pretty bad and received immediate and always compassionate care from the nursing staff. Everyone there from the Program Director down to housekeeping, maintenance and the kitchen staff were always willing to do anything they could to help us. The counselors were amazing... very insightful , compassionate and caring. Mine could read me so well that I'd never play poker with her. After 3 days of detox we were allowed to sign out and leave the property for up to 3 hours a day for AA, NA meetings a Wal Mart trip or whatever. After my relapse I arrived there with my tail between my legs feeling a lot of guilt and shame about what I had done and having to come back but all I heard was that they were glad that I was there and that they were happy to help me. The food was almost always good with a few dishes that I personally did not like and there was plenty of it. The facilities were very nice with a library, TV room and a nice patio to hang out on. There is a Recreation Committee among the patients that come up with activities. If your insurance cuts you off financing is available w/o a credit check, mine was at 6% unsecured. This is not a mental health facility, they deal with addiction but do look for and at underlying problems. All in all I'd recommend VH to anyone with an addiction problem, it is a very compassionate facility and I've never been hugged so much in such a short period in my life.
TJNI bonded with the other patients more than the staff. Everyone is welcoming and supportive. Three years clean and I don't regret a minute or a dollar I spent at Valley Hope.
SMDecent treatment but terrible uncaring Director at Cushing. No accommodations to attend church. Kitchen not able to provide adequate alternatives for vegetarians. Wouldn't even add beans to salad bar. Was told I could pay out balance after insurance, but corporate office said no and turned me to a debt collector. Regret going to this facility because of the stress now. A shame, because the treatment was decent.
ESThis facility allows its patients the freedom to leave daily, any visitor can visit, and outside communication is free. Thus, it doesn't feel like a psych ward or jail. His facility has a physician that only comes once per week and has a medical detox unit. I saw a physician once for less than 20 minutes. He preserved me a lot of medications that I had never been prescribed. I was found unresponsive, had a seizure, and by the time I had some awareness when the ambulance arrived my blood pressure was 54/52. They continued to try to administer the same medications that caused this. I checked myself out on the sixth day. I didn't eat for two days because no one brought food or woke me up for mealtimes. In six days, my room and linens were never cleaned, the trash was overflowing, and the facility was old and run down. Aside from 12 step classes, there is no recreational activities. Anyone off the street can walk in so there is no security. I have been denied my own medical records since I left. Valley Hope warehouses people, over medicates them, and collects insurance and private pay dollars. If you want your loved one to come home in a body bag send them here. IF NOT STAY AWAY!!! This facility is old and in need of cleaning and repair. There is nothing to do for recreational activities, and their Physician is only there once per week. I almost died due to their overmedicating me. The indignant treatment post their negligent conduct is unconchenable. There are much nicer and better treatment facilities. Spend your money elsewhere!!
KendaThis place has saved my life. It was the best place to get clean. I felt safe and loved the whole time I was there!
CLJI wanted to say that this place is a mess if you have a young adult attending or looking to attend.My daughter was there 90 days and in that time found more trouble there....eventually ended up getting kicked out and 45 days later falling back into the same mess as before...Thank You valley hope,job well done...
Anonymousgreat service, They were very helpful with placement
Anonymousthe people for the most part have had issues with addiction some of the patients were overlooked and were sneaking drugs into the facility. I love the staff there they were all very personable and got right to the treatment plan
KatI cried before entering rehab n have never been scared o nothing.....but once I got in here I got comfortable except for the all hours wake up.....but I respect everyone that works there..... I cried when I lef because ibfelt I was leaving my family....I LOV THESE PEOPLE
JEMIt was an overall great facility, but could have used more holistic options.
AnonymousThe care givers were great, but there were poor food choices. It was a worthy experience.
AnonymousThey have wonderful training and are personal. However, there is a lack of employees. I think it is an awesome place for rehab.
AnonymousThey are willing to assist and are friendly, compassionate, and nonjudgmental. However, it is expensive and few people are able to attend, They need to expand the insurance acceptance policies. They have a lot of group and one on one therapy which is important. Have many sources of support upon discharge. Very good at teaching coping skills and teaching tools to help u succeed when u leave treatment the staff is very knowledgeable.
AnonymousSmall faculty, friendly, and homey feeling. However, there was a lack of focusing on causes of addiction (anxiety, depression, bipolar etc.).
MichelleAbsolutely loved Valley Hope and highly suggest it. The experience saved my life and set me on a path to the 12 steps that have allowed me to be the woman I was meant to be. Very loving and kind. Wonderful sessions in group, class and one on one. However, it was expensive.
AnonymousI really enjoyed this facility.
AnonymousStrengths included: the dedicated counseling staff, nice facilities, centrally located to major metro areas in Oklahoma. However, they need more extracurriculars and off site activities
MRThis program was like being with family. Staff and clients included. The atmosphere was very healing and cheerful. Trust was given until a reason to not trust was shown. A client could leave campus for 2 hours with family or another client after the initial 72 hours detox time. Smoking was allowed. It was a wonderful program.
GAMThey had family and couple counceling sessions available
LMRThey were so compassionate! The councilors would walk around during free time and if they saw a patient or family member struggling with emotions or each other they would try to talk to them and help them figure out the problem.
KayValley Hope worked for me. Its program in based on the 12 steps. The facilities are clean and comfortable. Don't expect a luxury resort. The staff are professional and caring. The counselors are awesome. The treatment was effective. I probably owe my life to Valley Hope.
GWIt was a great place that truly seemed to care about you as a person It is a setting like school not like a treatment center
STCushing Valley Hope saved my life and my family. My husband also went there and is in recovery now as well. We owe our beautiful lives in recovery to them!
