I Loved Norton they helped me so much. Kind caring people every where you turned. In Wasn\'t ready to come home.


Do not send your loved ones to this facility. My husband and I were mislead and taken advantage of. Terrible communication was provided and family support barely exists. Have yet to see any paperwork ...


People truly care and want to help others get better


My brother stayed for drug abuse, which it did help with, but they taught him to blame everyone else for his decisions and he now lives his life hating his family and everyone close because this place...


Very disrespectful to family members patients are allowed off property...would not recommend this circus to anyone not family oriented and encourages divorce


Nurses were excellent...acted like they actually cared. Food was excellent. Even though I didn\'t stay long (wish I had) overall ok experience.


Nurses were extremely friendly and tried to help make me comfortable. Lots of downtime. If you get in with a bunch that are serious about recovery, instead of young punks that have no clue what it\'s ...


A good facility but needs better holistic offerings.


They have great counselors who are well trained and they are there for their patients. It works if you work it! Only downfall is how expensive it is.


Saved my life!


Counselors are wonderful and compassionate. Very organized. My Daughter just celebrated 3 years of sobriety from drug addiction. I will always be so thankful for Valley Hope. My family has her back!


That place is nothing but a joke. More like a punishment than a rehab It is more like a jail center


well trained staff, very professional, need longer treatment times nothing at this time


Good program but lacks a holistic offering

Areas of Focus
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.


The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
