0 Reviews

Hope House in Boston, Massachusetts is a non-profit Residential and Outpatient Addiction Treatment Center. Hope House's Residential Program services adult men only and the Outpatient Program services both adult men and women. Hope House's mission is to provide individualized treatment to those living with a substance use disorder (SUD).

Hope House Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Alcoholism

The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

What does Hope House offer?

Outpatient (OP)

They provide personalized treatment to men and women living with a substance use disorder (SUD). They educate and support their clients, so they can pursue their life’s interests with family, friends and employers, and become self- sufficient members of their communities. They also provide awareness and education on substance use and the disease of addiction to families and the community at large.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

The Residential Treatment at Hope Center consists of three phases. At the 21 day Phase I program, clients are evaluated for special needs in the areas of housing, medical condition, job prospects and the like. A client may be referred to community programs and/or practitioners who have affiliation agreements with Hope House as a means to address various special needs. At the same time, the client begins a series of required, intensive daily sessions which include AA group and step meetings, education assemblies focused on such topics as health, Aids, HIV and small group gatherings focused on teaching communication skills, anger management and the role of spirituality in daily living. At the Phase II "Work Program" all clients, if physically able, are expected to be gainfully employed in a full-time job or be engaged in seeking full-time employment on a daily basis. Clients who are unable to work are expected to attend house meetings and to take advantage of volunteer opportunities. As a condition of Phase II, all clients with income must pay a program fee in the form of rent at $119 per week or $17 per day. The Phase III "Aftercare", a client may participate in this phase of the Hope House program after “graduating” from Phase II. This program aspect consists of participation in weekly small groups convened to address daily living issues and the need for peer and/or additional professional support.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

12-Step

12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Aftercare Support

Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn’t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community  programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA). Aftercare emphasizes maintaining recovery.

Therapies Offered:

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Life Skills

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.
