Outpatient Services

Outpatient Services for Men and Women

The House of Hope offers services that are designed to meet the individual needs of men and women to recover from alcohol and drug use disorders.
  
Our outpatient program services are designed to minimize disruptions to work and educational opportunities by allowing participants to meet at convenient hours.
 
Assessments are scheduled in advance by calling
  
614-276-4840.
  
Appointments are generally available within a few business days of the call.
   
The House of Hope Outpatient accepts all forms of Medicaid and has a sliding fee scale for those without Medicaid. Please bring a picture ID and either your Medicaid card or proof of income to your assessment. At the conclusion of the assessment, if treatment is indicated, we have several options based on the level of need identified:
  
Awareness Group
 
Individuals who meet criteria for early intervention due to high risk use or abuse of drugs or alcohol qualify for our Awareness Group. This program is geared toward increasing knowledge of problems associated with drug and alcohol use. This group also helps each individual to evaluate their own drug or alcohol use and consequences. Tuesdays 6-7:30 pm
 
Intensive Outpatient Program
  
Those with more significant issues with alcohol and/or drugs may qualify for our Intensive Outpatient Program. The sessions are held three times per week. Participants are also involved in individual sessions with their counselor.  In order to provide more options to fit treatment into your schedule, we offer a Daytime Intensive Outpatient Program for both men and women in the morning, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, from 9:00 AM to 12:15 PM; and a men’s Evening Intensive Outpatient Program Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 5:45 PM to 9:00 PM.
  
Medication Assisted Treatment
   
The House of Hope Outpatient recognizes that Vivitrol is a helpful aid to treatment for some persons with opiate use problems.  Vivitrol is a non-narcotic injection that lasts about a month and helps reduce urges to use while blocking the effects of any use.  Through an agreement with Positive Recovery Solutions, The House of Hope makes Vivitrol injections available on-site for those in treatment.
 
While The House of Hope Outpatient does not offer Suboxone, we do provide treatment to those already taking it.

When you come to your first appointment, please bring the following:

  • Please bring your Medicaid card so that we can make a copy. If you don’t have the card, the billing number will do. In addition to Ohio Medicaid, there are now five Medicaid insurance carriers, CareSource, Molina, United Health Care, Paramount Advantage, & Buckeye.
  • Proof of your current residence. If your ID has an old address, you will need to bring the ID plus something else (one of these; Utility bill, tax documentation with current address, etc.)
  • If you are employed, please bring Proof of Income (one of these; check stub, tax documentation, social security statement, child support statement, alimony statement, etc.). If you are unemployed, please bring a Letter of Support from whoever is supporting you (family member, friend).  Please also bring proof of residence information for the supporting person.

  • If you do not have Proof of Residence and Proof of Income or a Letter of Support, we will not be able to do the assessment, and we will have to reschedule your appointment.
