Living at The Road to Hope


The goal of The Road to Hope House(s) is to provide an abstinence-based, twelve-step environment within which the addicted person receives the support, guidance and faith necessary to become a productive member of our society, while living in accordance with a regimen of daily sobriety. It is The Road To Hope House Foundation’s expectation that our residents grow spiritually and in maturity and begin to behave as responsible adults.  Personal Responsibility is at the heart of our program.


What It's Like Here

Life at The Road to Hope involves opportunities every day for growth and fun in sobriety. See some of the good times we have in sobriety in our photo album.


Before Admittance

Residents are often referred after a medically supervised inpatient rehabilitation program. They often come to The Road to Hope directly after treatment.


First 30 Days

For the first 30 days, residents build a strong, sober foundation in recovery. During this period, they often search for employment, attend outpatient treatment, and attend meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous, including a mandatory Big Book Study Meeting on Wednesday evenings.


Continued Residence

After 30 days, residents continue to use the tools they acquired during the first phase while being allowed some extra freedom, including the opportunity to apply for home passes on weekends.
