Carter Hope Center


Non-profit Carter Hope Center provides long-term residential treatment program for adult men and women. Detoxification services aren’t offered, though outpatient treatment is.


Individuals must be over 18 years old and submit a clean drug test or complete detox to be admitted. Treatment begins for clients with a health and physical assessment and medical testing. Carter Hope Center also uses the Matrix Model a treatment modality that uses evidence-based practices.

Residents will participate in a minimum of five 12-step meetings per week along with individual counseling, early recovery skills, and community meetings. Clients will also participate in job search training, addiction education, and relapse prevention education.

Clients are subject to random drug tests. Program graduates may participate in an aftercare group.

Residents must obtain and maintain employment during the length of the program.


Treatment is led by certified addiction counselors with assistance from counselors in training under supervision. The center works closely with hospitals and detoxification units to provide medical services.
