ABOUT HOUSE OF HOPE –– SALT LAKE CITY

House of Hope – Salt Lake City provides treatment for women and mothers who are struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. The center’s services include residential, day, and outpatient treatment, all in an environment that fosters the mother/child bonding process. The center is one of two Utah-based facilities operated by the House of Hope organization (the other facility is located in Provo, Utah).

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to House of Hope’s website, the center does not provide detox services; all clients must be free of drugs and alcohol for 72 hours, free of opiates for seven days, and free of benzodiazepines (e.g. Xanax and Valium) for 14 days to be eligible for admission. Individuals are also required to undergo a TB test and a general health screening prior to beginning treatment.

House of Hope’s treatment philosophy is based on the biopsychosocial model of addiction, which views addiction as a chronic disease. Programming draws upon the 12-Steps and includes a variety of treatment modalities, including group counseling, individual therapy, family counseling, and substance abuse education. Workshops address parenting skills, relapse prevention, anger and stress management, and healthy living activities, and clients are encouraged to attend community-based Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) groups. Treatment also includes case management. Length of stay is dependent upon each client’s needs.

For the children of participating mothers, the Hope Center for Children offers programming that provides a structured therapeutic environment. Under the guidance of a case manager and a therapist, children are taught to self-regulate their emotions and engage in creative expression.

At the end of treatment, House of Hope’s aftercare and recovery support services help clients transition back into their everyday lives.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

House of Hope’s treatment team consists of case managers, substance abuse counselors, therapists, clinical supervisors, administrative managers, and support staff.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

The five alumni polled by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing provided mixed reviews. While Ronda, one of the two individuals to submit a one-star review for the center’s treatment effectiveness, provided no clarifying details, K.B. offered a lengthy testimonial. She referred to the program as “a joke,” and noted the staff’s lack of follow-up. “Treatment plans are set to last 6 months to 1 year but most women are out after 2-3 months and aren’t held to any outlining program details. They have little if no regard to clients families and no real intention on permanently helping clients,” she wrote.

The remaining three alumni gave House of Hope four- and five-star reviews for its treatment effectiveness, its accommodations, and its meals and nutrition. They all praised the center’s treatment team, and S.B. specifically highlighted the staff’s work with children. “The day care facility does wonders with kids They teach you everything you need to be self sufficient within your daily life. The staff is the best It’s great for women with children,” she wrote. Cynthia agreed that the staff was “great,” but felt that the center’s lack of faith-based programming was a drawback.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The two loved ones of former clients polled by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing shared varying perspectives. When asked how likely they were to recommend the facility, one anonymous respondent provided a rating of just two out of five stars. This individual also submitted average or below-average ratings in most evaluated categories, including the center’s holistic offerings, its exercise and leisure options, its meals and nutrition, and the program’s treatment of co-occurring disorders. “Staff didn’t seem as skilled or experienced, really basic, no extra offerings, food was really poor,” they told Best-rehabs.com.

The other anonymous respondent submitted a five-star rating when asked how likely they were to recommend House of Hope. This reviewer provided four- and five-star ratings in all evaluated categories, including counseling options, family participation, affordability, and the staff’s level of training and experience. “Authority and accommodations were strengths of the facility. However, it was costly. They are loving yet firm,” they wrote in their review.

FINANCING

House of Hope offers self-pay options and accepts some third-party payments. The center also works with Medicaid and a number of private insurance companies, including Aetna, United Healthcare, and Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Utah.

  • Treatment is an invidual responsibility. Some staff were knowledgeable. Most were not. Clean. Everything else minus a couple of staff members.

  • Very great program. Comfortable, trusting, effective. This specific treatment center is kind of far from our home so after treatment is over it's hard to stay in touch.

  • this was one of the worst experiences with a treatment facility I have ever had I was court-ordered to the House of Hope unfortunately my case worker with probation wouldn't give me any other options but the House of Hope due to the fact that they have a special contract with them. All of the higher levels we're breaking rules had cell phones e-cigarettes my big sister who's supposed to teach you the rules just kind of left me sitting half the time I was standing around not knowing where I was supposed to be or what I should be doing I decided to leave through my ex boyfriend when he was notified by the staff I found out that you had eight days that they would hold your bed I tried getting back into the house of hope to be in compliance with court but my case manager and I don't see eye-to-eye and was not responding to make that worse neither did the House of Hope I emailed I called daily I showed up and they never seem to have time for me I'm an odyssey house graduate I would prefer Odyssey House over how many day they have the buddy system your buddy doesn't leave your side for the first few days so you learn the rulesat the House of Hope I stop by myself I felt discouraged everything was about parenting and I'm not able to get my daughter back this was definitely not the place for me and I had a horrible experience

  • This place is a joke. They're outlined treatment plans don't work and many of the women that go there are repeat clients. They don't hold to their disciplinary statues, they don't care about personal growth, they're a revolving door. Treatment plans are set to last 6 months to 1 year but most women are out after 2-3 months and aren't held to any outlining program details. They have little if no regard to clients families and no real intention on permanently helping clients...again a revolving door....I would stay far away from this place if you want real treatment DO NOT GO HERE!!!!

  • they were less expensive and had immediate openings. staff didn't seem as skilled or experienced, really basic, no extra offerings, food was really poor. rather than just reading online reviews (which we did since we were out of state), go visit treatment facilities, and really take time to look around and see everything first - that would make a huge difference.
