Treatment Program

Our program is based firmly upon our objectives and thereby is aimed directly at our goal. At the core of the program is the system which has proven to be the most effective means of recovery ever discovered. We are referring of course to the 12-step Program of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. Using the A.A. and N.A. view of addiction and their simple plan of recovery as our central theme, we have developed a therapy system which consists of the following elements.

I.GROUP LEARNING SESSIONS
The sessions are designed to teach the facts about addiction and recovery, using the lecture method with group participation.

II. SMALL GROUP COUNSELING 

The small group's purpose is to confront one's dishonesty, help others to face theirs, and to
start to be honest with self and others.

III. INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING 

In individual counseling, the client and the counselor have an opportunity to communicate in
depth, especially on the feelings level.

IV. MEDIA SESSIONS 

Media sessions are designed to help the client identify himself/herself as an alcoholic or addict,
to provide an intensive study of recovery materials, and to increase the belief that recovery is
possible.

V. SPECIAL SESSIONS 

These are sessions devoted to group and/or individual help in the process of self-examination
which is so important in achieving continuous recovery.

VI. ORIENTATION

Familiarization of each new client with the facility, the rules and the program.

VII. STAFFING 

Each client meets twice with the counseling staff, once prior to entering the therapy program,
and once before departing. The initial meeting is devoted to discerning the special needs of
the client and matching those with the proper counselor. The final meeting is for assessing
his/her progress, to formulate an aftercare plan and to establish personal contacts with A.A. or
N.A.  in the home community.

VIII. ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS / NARCOTICS ANONYMOUS 

Each client is expected to attend three A.A. or N.A. meetings weekly - one at Hope Valley
and two off premises.

IX. SPIRITUAL ACTIVITIES

A simple non-denominational spiritual meeting is held each Sunday morning at the facility,
and devotional meetings are held each morning. All clients are urged to spend time
expanding and improving their spiritual lives.

X. STUDY TIME 

This time is used to study recovery material, complete assigned reading, work on a
recovery step or otherwise address themselves to the principles of the 12-step program.

In addition to the elements already mentioned, there is ample opportunity to participate in
various recreational activities.
