From treatment to aftercare-the entire staff is absolutely wonderful. They are skilled and knowledgeable in every aspect. I had the pleasure of having Charlee as my personal counselor-she is so kind and always went above and beyond to help me transition during a very difficult time in my life. Dustin and Carrie also exceeded my expectations by taking their own personal time to ensure that clinical and personal needs were met. Thank you all for the HOPE you have restored in my life.
Hope gave me another shot at life when I was dying. It really helped having a smaller group. It was much more personable so I could get the help I needed, and the view was breathtaking. Great place to heal!

The hope institute was a truly wonderful experience for me and my path of sobriety. Through their own style of recovery and treatment, lots of options are explained and explored to find the right custom fit for an individual. The idea was to get to the “why” of addiction, not just the who, what, and where. I benefited greatly from this exploratory method and left there with confidence. Thanks to the team for everything!

I was one of the first people to receive help from The Hope Institute. I never in my life thought I would have been helped for my addiction and mental health issues but from the moment I stepped in that door I felt beyond welcome. The counselors take so much time to give you everything you can need on your way to recovery and value all types of approaches when it comes to being sober. I am now clean six months and still use all the tools that my wonderful counselors taught me. I forever feel at home in the institute and keep in touch well after my time there. The place is filled with community, artistic approaches to recovery, and a strong base for allowing those who attend to have a strong foundation for the future. If you feel as though you need to get help for any addiction, The Hope Institute is the perfect place to feel loved and cared for.

The most amazing place I have been to. Not only is the staff knowledgeable with a great curriculum more importantly they provide family, friendship and truly care about what they do. Highly recommended for people that deal with addiction struggles like myself. I personally have been to a lot of places and they gave everything for it to be my last.

A place where despair is turned into hope. The staff at the Hope Institute are compassionate and very supportive. They are empathetic and understanding of what their guest go through in times of hardship. They made me feel that I have a lot to look forward to in life, like no other place has. I would 100% recommend this place for yourself or your loved ones. Make that move and call them today.
