Located in South Boston, this facility provides programming that is individualized and offers group and individual therapy which employ evidence-based treatment methods and the 12-step philosophy.
Accommodations and Food
The New Hope residential facility is a three-story brick building on a former Naval Air base that recently underwent extensive renovations. The 60-bed facility has 30 bedrooms with the clients sharing rooms, each with private bathrooms. Men and women are separated on different sides of the building. The interior includes several large living rooms and lounges, a dining room and kitchen with new appliances.
The on-site kitchen staff prepares home-style meals for all the clients three times a day. The food is nutritious and hearty, with snacks available as well.
Treatment and Staff
The gender-specific programs at New Hope are designed to suit to each client’s needs and include up to five therapeutic groups daily and an off-site AA meeting every night. For the most part these 30-day programs are considered an in-between stop before either moving back home or, if needed, entering into a longer-term residential facility. Clients work closely with their caseworkers on personal health and communication skills, and mending family relationships.
The women’s program is referred to as Sisters in Sobriety, and provides trauma informed treatment, while the men’s is known as Compass Group, which employs the Jungian approach. Both programs offer psychoeducation, coping skills and relapse prevention techniques. These programs focus on best practice methods of treatment with group numbers being about eight clients to one counselor. There are also groups that focus on PSTD, dual diagnosis, and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) along with developing parenting and anger management skills.
