Located in the Inglewood neighborhood in Los Angeles, California, Open Arms House of Hope is a Christian-based, long-term sober living and drug and alcohol treatment facility with flexible payment plans and lengths of stay. The organization has a number of homes throughout the area for both men and women.
Accommodations and Amenities
Open Arms House of Hope offers 10 homes that accommodate a total of 32 clients in discreet locations throughout South Los Angeles. Clients live in gender-specific residences and each home has two to five bedrooms, each designed for double occupancy. Homes are outfitted with comfortable decor, common living areas, kitchens and on-site coin laundry. Clients are expected to purchase their own groceries and prepare their own meals.
Rules and Regulations
Although classified as a sober living, the programs at Open Arms House of Hope are similar to long-term residential treatment. During the first 30 to 45 days, clients are expected to attend group therapy throughout the day covering topics like life skills, relapse prevention, problem solving, anger management, decision-making and identifying emotions. As a Christian-based program, all sessions are based on the teachings of scripture and residents are required to attend church twice a week. Residents must also attend on-site 12-step meetings every night from 6 to 7 pm. Individual therapy is offered on an as-needed basis.
In order to live at any of the homes or take part in the Open Arms House of Hope recovery program, clients must remain abstinent from alcohol and drugs and be willing participants in the recovery process. After the first 30 to 45 days, each client gets a progress report and if they’re ready, are encouraged to start attending school or get a job while living in the facilities.
Staff consists of three co-directors, one of which is pastor and a CADC, while the other two are spiritual advisors.
Programs are affordable and community-focused, with referrals and support available for both early and later periods of recovery. These include GED completion, job training and medical care.
In all, Open Arms House of Hope is a nice combination of substance abuse treatment and sober living, with the flexibility to start working or attending school while still in the program. For those of the Christian faith, this program is a great way to connect (or reconnect) with spirituality. While those in need of a more medically-focused or non-denominational program will not find what they need here, for their target demographic, Open Arms House of Hope is a worthy consideration for both treatment and sober living.
