Accommodations and Food
The 56-bed facility has about 23 dorm-style rooms rooms, with clients typically sharing a space with one other resident (clients over 18 years old do not share rooms with minors). Additional on-site amenities including an exercise room, a living center with a pool table, ping pong, foosball and television and a music room with a piano and guitars that residents are encouraged to use during downtime. Residents are given three meals a day, served cafeteria-style, by staff cooks with menus designed by the program’s dietary department.
Treatment and Staff
Upon intake, those in need of medically-monitored detox can do so on-site, with the option of Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), if necessary. For those who choose to continue into treatment, the residential track offers individualized treatment plans with flexible durations.
Treatment is heavily based in the 12 steps, with regular meeting attendance required, in addition to group, individual and family therapy using solution-focused brief therapy and evidence-based methods such as CBT and DBT. Educational sessions are also part of the program. Those looking for aftercare are encouraged to step down to one of the facility’s outpatient programs. IOP provides treatment over a six-week period that meets three times per week for a minimum of three hours each session. All Valley Hope locations offer evening sessions and many provide sessions during the day. IOP provides individual and group therapy, plus drug and alcohol education. Clients also learn about 12-step philosophy and how it can help them stay on the path to a drug-free life.
The clinical staff consists of eight Kansas-state LDACs and three case managers. Since there are no licensed mental health professionals on staff, support for clients with co-occurring disorders is limited, but referrals can be provided.
The continuing care, or aftercare program is a one-hour group session that meets once a week for as long as necessary. The focus is on relapse prevention and support for a healthy lifestyle. Participation in a 12-step program is encouraged to help patients stay on the path to long-term recovery.
Norton Valley Hope hosts special on-site 12-step meetings for friends and alumni every month, as well as renewal meetings to celebrate significant recovery dates for its clients.
Norton Valley Hope offers affordable residential treatment for alcohol and addiction. The 12-step approach to recovery and family involvement play a major role in the program here; however, it also employs a nice balance of the more recent evidence-based modalities, offering a solid and well-rounded curriculum. With a long history of helping addicts in the community recovery from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and being, Norton Valley Hope remains a valuable resource in the treatment of chemical dependency.
