ABOUT MOUNDRIDGE VALLEY HOPE
Founded in Kansas in 1967, Valley Hope now operates addiction treatment facilities in seven states: Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas. The Moundridge facility is the newest addition to the network. Located 40 miles northwest of Wichita, Kan., it offers medically monitored detox, residential treatment, and continuing care for individuals aged 18 and over.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the center’s website, the length of treatment varies depending on the client’s needs, but the residential program typically lasts 30 days and consists of 40 hours of programming per week. All programs are individualized, and treatment utilizes a combination of education about the nature of disease and addiction, individual and group counseling, family programming, spiritual counseling, and aftercare planning. It is also highly based on the 12-Steps.
Family programming at the Moundridge facility is offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays. But regardless of the treatment program, family involvement is encouraged.
After a treatment program ends, the facility recommends continuing care, which involves one hour-long group session per week.
