Hope House is dedicated to helping individuals stop the vicious cycle of substance abuse and untreated mental illness. The goal of treatment at the residential rehab is to provide clients with the education and tools they’ll need to become self-sufficient and re-enter society. The hope is that clients will become strong, fulfilled individuals by learning how to manage their disorders and cope with life in healthy, constructive and sober ways.

Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.
- Residential Treatment
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
