In addition to substance abuse and mental health counseling, clients may receive transportation assistance, educational opportunities, health care, and emergency food distribution. While there is no other information specific to addiction treatment provided by the facility, the two loved ones polled by Best-rehabs.com to date both gave Hope House four out of five stars for its counseling options.

  • The treatment is coheasive and eventually makes sense. It is hard knowing the rules at first. This facility treats patients and their family fairly as long as everyone follows the rules and policies in place.

    Proximity It's not as professional as I'd have hoped. I think it was a solid facility for the price.
