Port of Hope


Located in Nampa, Idaho, about 20 miles west of Boise, Port of Hope is a non-medical facility that provides residential treatment and intensive outpatient (IOP) programming for individuals faced with substance abuse problems. Non-medical, social detoxification as well as specialized assessments and DUI services are also all on offer.


Prior to treatment, prospective clients undergo an initial substance abuse assessment to determine the level of care required. Assessments and admissions are offered 24/7, though the facility’s website maintains: “Our program is demanding, and admission is only granted to those that are truly desiring lasting treatment.” Where a supervised environment is needed, clients may be referred to the 35-day, intensive residential program.

In these five weeks, residents keep to a structured schedule of group and individual therapy sessions and educational classes to help prevent relapse. Topics covered may include trigger avoidance techniques and coping skills. Port of Hope also invites family members for group and individual counseling.

Following residential treatment, clients may make use of Port of Hope’s IOP track as an aftercare service. IOP may consist of individual, group, and family counseling sessions as well as classes on substance abuse and recovery.


Programming at Port of Hope is led by substance abuse counselors and behavioral health technicians, many of whom are also in recovery themselves.


Although details on accommodations are few, Port of Hope’s website describes the facility as having a “warm, safe environment” and “home-like atmosphere.”

Port of Hope is a non-medical facility. Should the need arise, residents do have access to nearby medical assistance.


In the sole Best-rehabs.com survey response to date, an anonymous former client was quite critical. They gave only one star for the facility’s counseling options, the staff’s level of training and experience, and the discharge planning. They also gave only one star in indicating how strongly they’d recommend the program to others, yet three and four stars, respectively, for family programming and treatment effectiveness. The alum also complained that treatment was co-ed rather than gender-separate.

On CiteHealth, where five individuals shared an average rating of 3.2 out of five stars, feedback was very mixed.


While some called the staff “wonderful” and “great,” another found them “unprofessional” and “manipulative.” Note, however, that this rating applies to both Port of Hope locations.


Best-rehabs.com has yet to receive feedback from any affiliated friends and family members, however, secondary sources also revealed critical perspectives. On Google, for example, Tina wrote: “I took my boyfriend. And it was very small. Kinda a Ma and Pa place. Not real profesional.”



There is currently no information provided on the facility’s website regarding its costs.
