ABOUT BASTROP HOPE HOUSE

Located in the community of Bastrop, Texas, 30 miles southeast of Austin, Bastrop Hope House provides a long-term, faith-based residential program and transitional housing for women struggling with chemical dependency. Formally a transitional home of men, the facility reopened in 2014 as a gender-specific program for women, helping residents to overcome addiction and prepare for a successful re-entry back into the community. The facility does not provide detoxification services on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Upon admission into the program, clients may participate in an initial assessment to help clinicians identify individual needs. Bastrop Hope House is divided into two phases: the Recovery Phase and Transitional Phase. While the Recovery Phase focuses on recovery from addiction, the Transitional Phase is designed to offer residents a foundation and the skills necessary for independent living.

Bastrop Hope House’s initial Recovery Phase lasts six months. During this time, clients adhere to a highly structured schedule of programming. Residents may participate in group counseling sessions, as well as attend educational classes on the recovery process. In addition, clients participate in regular Bible study classes and learn how to incorporated Christian principles into their recovery and daily life.

As a client progresses in the Recovery Phase, residents begin to participate in work therapy in Bastrop Hope House’s marketing and screen printing business. Work therapy is designed to offer residents marketable vocational skills, develop a healthy work ethic, and build self-esteem. To help residents acclimate to a healthy, sober lifestyle, residents also regularly enjoy trips to the park, fishing outings, kayaking, and other outdoor activities, as well as volunteer in the community and attend community events.

Once a clients completes the initial Recovery Phase, the resident begins the Transitional Phase of treatment. Bastrop Hope House’s Transitional Phase helps ensure clients are self-sufficient upon discharged. During this phase, residents are required to obtain employment within the first 30 days. The facility also assists clients to obtain a driver’s license, as well as enroll into community college classes and/or obtain their G.E.D.

During the Transitional Phase, residents still receive spiritual guidance and participate in activities that may promote their recovery. As a faith-based program, residents may attend worship services, continue Bible studies, and give devotionals. Although the Transitional Phase has no set length of time, the facility’s website states that typically women have enough time to save money for themselves and their families before completing the program.
