It would be easy to promote the idea that recovery is a simple process, or that alcoholism and/or addiction can be addressed in 30 days, but that wouldn’t be honest. The path we share with the people who live in Hope Manor Sober Living Homes is based on the 12 Steps, which has been successfully used in recovery programs like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous for almost a century. In order to help you achieve life-long recovery, Hope Manor requires attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous and/or Narcotics Anonymous meetings, workshops, conferences, and recovery activities.
Time is needed to create solid, life-long recovery. Hope Manor teaches that true recovery requires willingness, rigorous honesty, taking personal responsibility for behavior, and a commitment to helping others. Residents in each house learn to be supportive of each other in the journey to a new life. Hope Manor homes are designed to create a sense of comfort, support and security that allows residents to do the necessary physical, emotional and spiritual work that will bring about life-long recovery. If you are willing, open and honest you can have a new life with new attitudes, new behaviors, and new habits. To assist you in your recovery Hope Manor offers a warm, embracing, fully furnished home with a real sense of community and at a very affordable price.
The use of non-chemical coping skills, gainful employment, volunteering, education and action is the basis of the Hope Manor Philosophy. The 12 Step (AA, NA, DAA, etc.) programs are heavily utilized and provide the crucial foundation for the recovery process. This positive and supportive structured environment is extremely conducive for recovery from alcoholism and addiction.
Weekly random urinalysis/breathalyzer of each resident is required as a condition of entering and remaining at Hope Manor. Refusal or a failed test will result in immediate termination.
Hope Manor accepts residents charged with drug and alcohol violations as part of alternative sentencing. Hope Manor is inspected annually for Health, Safety and Quality Standards. Hope Manor is a member of the National Sober Living Association, which certifies, inspects, trains and mentors the Hope Manor team.
While each resident is expected to be personally responsible and accountable, the residents are closely monitored for compliance with the rules, regulations and requirements of Hope Manor. For a complete list of all rules and regulations please review the application.
Family Workshops & Family Services
Family Healing and Recovery: Alcoholism and addiction is a family disease. While your loved one is getting the help needed, we can help your family heal as well. Getting your loved one into treatment or sober living is only the start of things, it hasn’t cured anything yet. Please know that just because your loved one is getting help, does not mean that all the family’s issues will solve themselves. Family Roles will be brought to light, and therefore, solutions can be created and new roles can be defined. As part of our services we can provide you with resources which will help you find the solution to your personal healing. At Hope Manor we understand it is a life or death matter. We can guide, support and provide the family with real solutions and will walk with you step-by-step through a course of action.
Hope Manor has a 7-week Family Program which include presentations by professionals, personal stories, materials, support, resources and more.
Do you find trying to “fix” your loved one keeps producing the same results; constant relapses, multiple arrests, legal fees, mounting hospital bills, replacing automobiles, paying off credit card debt, losing jobs, arguments, etc.? Does your loved one manipulate and prey upon your insecurities so that they can maneuver with impunity through life while they drink or use? If you answered yes to any of the above, the Hope Manor Family Program is for you.
We are Family
Once someone enters Hope Manor, they become family, and that doesn’t stop once they exit. That’s when the added support of Hope Manor really helps hold people as they transition into this new chapter of their lives. We aim to walk through life with our alums and their families.
One way we foster connection with residents and their families is through our Hope Manor Friends, Family, and Alumni night. This meeting, which is open to everyone, is held on the last Thursday of each month from 8:30-9:30 pm at The Hub (321 S. 1st Street). We feature alumni who share their recovery journey and experience at Hope Manor, celebrate recovery milestones, and have fun and fellowship.
Stay tuned for new and exciting developments as we build upon our Alumni Program to better support past residents and those new in recovery.
