Haven of Hope is staffed and managed by a live-in house manager and hired staff. We provide a foundation for residents to build a solid support group. Our goal is to prepare them to make a healthy transition back to “the real world”. Our focus is on maintaining physical and emotional sobriety through the philosophy of the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous / Narcotics Anonymous.
The sober living experience follows traditional treatment or detox giving the individual the best opportunity for recovery. Personal experience tells us that the primary reason for relapse is that after traditional treatment the alcoholic or drug abuser returns to the same people, places and triggers that fueled their addiction in the first place. The ability to relocate and to live with other people in recovery has been proven to be successful.
Haven of Hope operates as a loving, dignified transitional living environment with a focus on healthy structure and routine. With that in mind, we have House Standards that we expect all residents to adhere to.
