Deb Ludemann has been with O’Neill Valley Hope since 2002, when she entered the counselor training program. She is a licensed alcohol and drug counselor (LADC) and, after working as a counselor at O’Neill Valley Hope for 8 years, took the position of Community Services Clinician. Her job now includes some of the duties of counselor when in O’Neill, but also has her on the road networking and helping get people into treatment. When substance abuse gets in-between a person and what is important to them, Deb believes in the need for people to begin their recovery journey to get back what is important to them in their lives.

Keeps individuals busy. Lots of information. I feel the others should stay at facility busy but sometimes they were able to go into town. My relative was there and I wish he could have stayed longer.

Knowledgable staff. Very open programming. A good program.
They\'re very good at taking your money but that\'s all they are about.
My son needs help now and they tell you to call back tomorrow!! Thanks but it'll probably be too late by then.
Some of the counselors were good. Absolutely NO fitness program, equipment or classes. Poor quality of MD who manages medications. Campus setup forces you to go outdoors a lot in the cold Nebraska wi...
Wonderful staff and counselors who truly care about the success of patients.
They helped me to lay a very solid foundation for my recovery. All of the counselors are recovering alcoholics/addicts and they were easy to relate to. The food selections were limited and not the hea...
Excellent counselors. However, there was too much smoking. Stay for the entire time.

Very unprofessional. I don't know why some of the people here haven't been fired...
She was going through some very hard times; she had legal issues and an abusing relationship as well. Therefore, the 30 day program did as much as they could under the circumstances.
Good place to get help.
Helped my husband get clean.
Willingness to accept clients despite financial issues. People have an opportunity to become accountable, we allow people to make choices, we do not make them for them.
My brother came home a changed person. He is sober, happy, hopeful, active in meetings that have members from Valley Hope. The Valley Hope community have a Facebook page, social events, meetings and l...
The counselors 1 on 1 are very good otherwise not worth the money. Patients are given too much freedom and people are allowed to yell at each other at group meetings.
The facility guided me where I needed attention effortlessly. The facility's resources along with my willingness for change were very helpful..
- 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.
- Aftercare Support
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
