Addiction is exhausting! 

Things You Might Be Wondering...

Do I have to go to 12-step meetings?


I like to say Hope For Families is an "all denominations" recovery center. We believe there are multiple paths to recovery, and it's our job to help you find yours. We are big fans of 12 step, but we realize 12 step meetings aren't the right fit for everyone.




Does my family have to be involved?


The answer to that question is PROBABLY. If you are living with parents or a spouse, then we are going to want your family involved, because you'll have a much better success rate, and because we are going to get the family drama to stop.

We use a systems approach in our program, because we understand that it's never a one-person problem. The individuals in a family are intertwined and each person impacts the other person. Our clients that have family involved have much higher success rates, and generally have an easier time in recovery.

We do have some cases where family participation isn't appropriate (usually when dealing with a single adult, who isn't living with a family member). Other than that, we usually have family involved in the process.

Most times, family members want to be supportive, but they do all the wrong things. We help mediate the tension between you and your family.

Don't worry, you won't have to be in the same sessions together. We will assign you a counselor, and your family will have a separate counselor. That way everybody has confidentiality and the safety they need to talk freely, but the two counselors will have all the puzzle pieces.

We sometimes like to call it "lawyering". Everybody gets their own advocate, and we help mediate between family members.




How much is this going to cost?


I hate it when I'm looking to purchase something, but the prices aren't marked.

Most of the time, I just move on without asking in those cases, because it's just awkward.

Most treatment centers would never put their fees on their website, for a couple of reasons:

1. They don't want to scare people away.

2. They charge different rates for different people.

BUT WE WANT TO BE AS TRANSPARENT AS POSSIBLE! No sneaky tricks or hidden fees.

There are places that finance treatment. It works the same as other medical financing. We recommend our clients try My Treatment Lender, if they need to finance their treatment.

We don't get any kick back from the treatment lenders. We just provide it as a resource for our clients.

Is being sober going to suck?


Most people think they'll never enjoy themselves again once they get sober, but in reality you'll gain more of an ability to enjoy life. When you've been using or drinking regularly, you lose the ability to experience joy from regular things (even things you use to love!). Which is why you feel like getting clean or sober means giving up joy and fun forever. That couldn't be further from the truth. You're going to experience joy in all the small things in life again. #SobrietyThatDoesn'tSuck!




Do I have to stop drinking or using drugs completely or can I just cut back?


We work with each client and family as they decide on what's right for them. Most of our clients eventually make the decision to stop using all mood- and mind-altering substances (completely), but that is not a requirement for Hope For Families. It all depends on how far into addiction you are. If it hasn't gone on that long and you're catching it early, there's a chance that you can learn to manage some substances. Other people find that it's easier to stop all together, than it is to try and drink or use drugs moderately.




What are your success rates?


Lots of people think success means a person stays completely sober without ever having a relapse, but we believe there are several factors involved in what constitutes successful treatment.

So, for example, last week I had a client in my office who had relapsed the week before. She was so upset with herself and cried on my couch telling me what had happened. (I call this confession!). She was clearly already angry with herself, and obviously didn't need me to point out where she went wrong or things she could have done differently.

Instead of doing those things, I told her I was proud of her because she initially reached out to her family members the day after the relapse and told them what happened. She made an appointment with me right away and also asked to be put back on alcohol monitoring.

To me, this is a success story, because she got right back on the wagon. She knew exactly what she needed to do and had the courage to be honest about it. She was also insightful enough to ask for increased accountability, so the relapse wouldn't continue.

Of course, we try and help people get sober and stay sober, but here are a few other things we think make for successful treatment.

1. At Hope For Families, one of our main goals is to give people a positive treatment experience. Not because we want everything to be sunshine and rainbows, but because when people have a good experience in treatment, they are much more likely to reach out if they ever have trouble in the future.

2. We want to make sure their relationships (particularly family relationships) improve. Addiction is driven by shame, guilt, resentment, and loneliness, so one of the best ways to combat this illness is through connection, trust, and confidence. These are the main things we focus on at Hope For Families.

3. If one of our clients does have a lapse, we want them to recognize it quickly and put their skills back in place.

Now that I've told you how we measure success, I can confidently tell you we have EXCELLENT success rate!!




How long is your program?


At Hope For Families, you and your counselor will custom design your treatment plan. Our program is designed to give the maximum amount of flexibility possible, while ensuring positive results. Each new client or family starts by meeting with one of our staff for a consultation (no fee involved). During this consultation, we will get a chance to meet and decide if everyone feels Hope For Families is the right fit. If everyone agrees to move forward, we will design a plan that works specifically for you. NO ONE SIZE FITS ALL RECOVERY PLANS! You will be in control of how fast or how slow you move through your program. You'll have access to individual therapy, family therapy, groups, classes, drug screening, alcohol monitoring, coaching sessions, etc. You (and your family) will be able to build the plan that works best for your situation.




What ages do you treat?


We treat teens, young adults, and adults.




What if I'm not 100% ready?


No one is ever 100% ready! You just have to be willing to give it a try. The very nature of alcoholism and addiction isn't going to let you be 100% sure.




What are the rules?


Our #1 rule is to have as few rules as possible”!

We're pretty flexible! We've learned that's the way it works best - we like to make game time decisions!! We call "the plays" based upon the circumstances!

Watch the video to learn more!




Do you take my insurance?


Hope For Families is considered an out of network provider. So, no, we don't take your insurance. Check out the video to find out why! Many of our clients send in their receipts (called superbills) and are able to get reimbursed for their individual or family sessions through their out of network benefits. We can show you how to do this if you'd like or you can use a service called "Better App". They help people become reimbursed for their out of network benefits. Basically, they do it for you! Here's a link for more information on that. https://getbetter.co/




Who do you decide who gets admitted?


1. At least one person has to be committed to the process of recovery. Sometimes people reach out to us themselves, looking for help. Other times, family members reach out to us trying to find help for their loved one. Either of these two situations work equally well. We don't take on families unless at least one person is committed to the process. 2. We work very closely with the individuals and families we treat. We are going to be spending a lot of time together, so we want to be sure it's a good personality fit. We don't work with people who are rude, critical, or condescending to any of our staff members or each other. Not only is important for you to trust your therapist, it's important for us to trust you. If that trust isn't happening, then it isn't a good fit. 3. The work we do is very effective, but it requires a massive amount of time, attention, and coordination. For that reason, we never admit more than TWO families a week. It takes a lot of energy in the beginning and we want to make sure we can give you all the attention you need to get started on the right foot. If you feel like we are the right fit for your situation, just fill out the short application form located on the home page of this website. Once we receive it, we will get in touch with you to schedule a personal consultation, so we can get to know each other and decide if Hope For Families is the right place for your recovery journey. Here's what the application looks like:




Why would I pay to come to Hope For Families when I can go to AA, NA, or FAVOR for free?


Great Question.

Most people don't really ask us this out loud, but we know they're thinking it!

While we are big fans of all types of community support groups, most of our clients need more when they first get started.

Here's what I mean...

1. They need help getting involved and engaged. Some people (especially those with social anxiety) just hide in the back of a 12-step (or other community) meeting and never talk.

2. They need the advantage of having a strategic plan built for them based on their unique qualities. Most people struggling with a substance abuse problem also have some other mental health concerns (often that's what is triggering the drug or alcohol problem to begin with), and 12-step meetings don't address that part.

3. They need the family component. Without it, the drama just continues. For example, their spouse or parent is likely to have some major trust issues happening and the way they usually manage this is to micromanage and play secret spy. This always makes things worse, which is why we spend so much time resolving this problem specifically and directly with the family members.

4. They need recovery monitoring services. Let's face it.... in the beginning, you're going to need accountability. I can't tell you how many of our clients tell us they've been telling their spouse or parents they were attending meetings, and instead they go out drinking or use drugs.

Addiction is sneaky, and you're going to have to be very smart to beat it! Our job is to stay 5 steps ahead of it.

*Many of our clients attend community support group meetings in addition to our services and for maintenance after they've finished their program.




I've already tried a lot of other things.  How is this going to be different?

We look at underlying mental health problems, family dynamics, grief, trauma, and even how each individuals personality works, because these are the determining factors for buiding a recovery plan that will work specifically for you. There is no one size fits all recovery plan! The fact that you've tried lots of other things, and not gotten the result you wanted, is a good indicator that Hope For Families is the right place for you.
