WHO WE ARE

WHAT WE DO

Recovery & Treatment

The Hope Center operates recovery programs for men and women suffering from substance use disorder. These programs provide a long-term recovery approach that is peer-driven and professionally supervised. They are delivered in a community atmosphere that emphasizes both personal responsibility and mutual accountability. The Hope Center seeks to meet the needs of individuals where they are, offering recovery & treatment in a variety of forms (see more below). 

Recovery Programs

Since 1996, the Hope Center has operated a highly successful residential recovery program for men with over a thousand graduates. The program provides a long-term recovery approach that is both peer-driven and professionally supervised. It utilizes the Recovery Dynamics curriculum in a community atmosphere that emphasizes both personal responsibility and mutual accountability. The program is housed in the George Privett Recovery Center for Men. The men’s program also includes a supportive, safe environment to gain sobriety in the Emergency Shelter known as Safe Off the Streets.

In 2002, the Hope Center opened the Ball-Quantrell Jones Recovery Center for Women, a new residential facility to house the recovery program for women.The program is based on the same peer-driven, professionally supervised model as the men’s program based on the Recovery Dynamics curriculum. They also provide  a supportive, safe environment to gain sobriety through Safe Off the Streets. The program adds several gender-specific features while continuing to emphasize personal responsibility and mutual accountability. 

In August 2002, the Hope Center began operating the Detention Center Recovery Program for Men. In July 2006, a recovery program for women inmates was established. Both the men’s and the women’s programs are innovative six-month substance abuse recovery programs modeled on the Hope Center’s established residential programs. These programs consist of the 28 lessons of Recovery Dynamics, cognitive, behavioral intervention classes to alter criminal thinking patterns, and participant “communities” in which the inmates hold each other accountable for their behavior and recovery issues. In addition, all participants attend regular Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings conducted in the Detention Center by AA volunteers.

The Hope Center provides group therapy and educational 12-step support groups focused on a recovery lifestyle for both men and women through its Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Clients are provided services by Behavioral Health Clinicians with expertise in addiction services. This program allows us to meet the recovery needs of individuals who need a more flexible option. Clients also have the opportunity to enter other Hope Center programs following their participation in IOP. 

The Hope Center is working to expand its services to meet the needs of more individuals in our community with the upcoming launch of a new 30-day intensive Residential Treatment Program. This program will be housed at the Don & Cathy Jacobs House and initially accommodates 16 clients, with space to grow. Clients will experience group and individualized sessions as well as structured activities through this program. They will also have the opportunity to enter other Hope Center programs following their treatment.

The Hope Center is proud to partner with the Department of Corrections. We strictly follow the PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003) Code of Ethics. Anyone who wishes to volunteer or work within the Hope Center needs to read and adhere to the attached Code.
