“Before coming to the House of Hope, my life was about getting my next drug or drink. Now my focus is being of services to others instead of just thinking about myself. I have a whole new view of life now …”
— Kyle Harden
At the House of Hope, the health and safety of our clients and staff is our first priority. In response to the developments around coronavirus (COVID-19), the House of Hope is taking several precautions to protect our clients, employees, and community members. Here are some of the adjustments that we have made to our services to provide continuity of care and comply with all recommendations and orders issued by public health and government officials:
Our residential program, recovery residences, and outpatient program are continuing to take new clients. All incoming clients will be screened for symptoms of COVID-19, and anyone presenting with symptoms or specific risk factors will be redirected to appropriate public health authorities and/or medical providers.
Clients in our residential program and recovery residences are not permitted to exercise home passes, receive visitors, or attend community-based 12-step meetings at this time. Our staff is working to diversify program and household activities so that clients can remain engaged and focused on recovery.
Outpatient services will continue as planned, though outpatient clients will also be screened for symptoms of COVID-19. Our outpatient clients will not be required to attend community-based 12-step meetings as part of programming, and they will be encouraged to utilize online resources for sober support.
We are currently implementing government-approved telehealth options for our clients to reduce the need for in-person counseling sessions.
We will continue to monitor our staff and clients for symptoms of COVID-19. Any client or staff potentially impacted by this virus will be required to contact their medical provider and/or public health officials accordingly.
We are suspending our outreach services at Reeb Avenue until further notice.
