Hope House Addiction Services

We meet our patients where they are in their recovery journey. With us they receive integrated substance use disorder services tailored to everyone. We balance education, family stabilization assistance, social skills development, and vocational planning. We provide health and wellness education, HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention, tobacco cessation, nutrition, and exercise. New patients participate in an initial evaluation and together we develop their personalized treatment plan. Health needs are carefully reviewed, and any additional services are provided through our affiliations with local medical facilities.

Our program is structured in evidence-based therapy models. We emphasize empowerment through strengths-based modeling. We support patients as they go back to work as they are able, or another meaningful way of life. The know all people deserve another chance and at Hope House we give men the tools they need to make the most of that chance.

Hope House helps all able residents to be gainfully employed and contribute to their room and board. This starts them on the road to financial independence and provides necessary work experience when they seek future employment. Counselors assist clients in their job search by working with local employment agencies and suggesting companies known to hire individuals in recovery. Seeking out and applying for a job is a lesson in individual responsibility and employment is a key component of recovery.  Residents are expected to work and pay their program fee on a weekly basis. This may sound like a simple procedure but for many it is not. It is a way of life that must be learned and mastering it plays a significant role in the recovery process. This is a first for many residents as they have never before been responsible tenants in a stable housing situation. 90% of residents are unemployed when they arrive at Hope House and 95% have obtained employment by the time they leave.

In 2009, as part of our construction project, we expanded our services to include affordable housing for graduates of Hope House and other area recovery programs. Our new building includes 22 units of affordable housing. Each furnished Single Resident Occupancy (SRO) apartment has its own kitchenette and shares common bathrooms and laundry facilities. These units have been declared eligible to participate in the Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program (MRVP).  Historically this rent subsidy has been set at 75% of the Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA) rent for a 1-bedroom apartment. In the instance that an individual does not qualify for that subsidy, his rent would revert to 30% of income.
