On the Grass Valley, California campus of Community Recovery Resources (CoRR), Hope House for Women and Serenity House for Men provide residential treatment for substance abuse in a scenic three-acre setting in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. These facilities have been treating adults and adolescents for almost 15 years, though CoRR has been in existence since 1974. The length of stay is typically between 30 and 90 days.
Accommodations and Food
The 15-bed Hope House and 25-bed Serenity House are gender-separate and located in adjacent buildings. At Hope House, 10 extra beds are available for children up to 12 years of age who are allowed to stay with their mothers. In addition to double-occupancy rooms, there are single rooms for female residents. Serenity House typically has double-occupancy rooms but will permit a resident to stay in a single when space is available.
In both units, the dormitory-style rooms are spacious, with a bed, desk, dresser and window for each resident. Each room has its own bathroom and there are also bathrooms in the facilities. There are two lounges and an exercise room where yoga classes are held. Cell phones and computers are not permitted.
Meals, which are served in the cafeteria, are made with fresh ingredients whenever possible, with attention paid to dietary constraints as well as nutrition and taste.
Free time for residents is generally after lunch and in the evening, with more flexible scheduling on weekends.
Treatment and Staff
CoRR uses Motivational Interviewing (MI), CBT and EDMR to explore the behaviors that trigger chemical dependency. Services are determined by a client’s individual needs. Individual and group counseling are required a minimum of six hours a day. Individual sessions tend to last for an hour, while groups can go for up to two or three hours, depending on the topic and group size. Relapse prevention, discharge planning and community integration support are discussed. As part of treatment, CoRR also provides health services, recreation and exercise, nutritional planning and case management.
The facility offers on-site, gender-specific detox, which has enough capacity for two men and two women. Suboxone may be prescribed for opioid addiction. Dual diagnosis support is available for clients with co-occurring disorders.
The staff consists of mental health professionals, social workers and licensed MFTs. Some have PhDs and Master’s-level degrees. The Hope House residential program manager is CADC-certified for alcohol and drug counseling. The staff-to-client ratio is one-to-four.
Every 30 days, family meetings are held, in keeping with CoRR’s philosophy of involving family in the recovery process. If needed, more family sessions may be arranged.
Transitional living and aftercare are also offered.
Community Recovery Resources offers gender-specific treatment in a structured, safe and supportive environment. Female residents at Hope House are permitted to bring young children with them, which helps in recovery and eases child care concerns. In a scenic setting, clients at CoRR will find good care from a professional and well-trained team.
