Meet the Staff Your Treatment Team at The Hope House

The Hope House Staff

The Hope House treatment team is comprised of independently licensed, inter-disciplinary staff dedicated to helping clients heal their mind and body.

Upon admission, all clients meet with our treatment team to establish substance abuse history, identify any mental health issues, and understand personal motivations. Armed with an in-depth analysis, our treatment directors are able to develop a highly personalized treatment plan to help clients achieve long-term success.

While in rehab, clients receive round-the-clock care as well as regularly schedule individual and group therapy sessions in accordance to their personalized treatment plan. Shortly after admission, clients are paired with a dedicated case manager to assist with outstanding professional or court obligations and begin to develop their aftercare program.
