In Hope House's Own Words
Hope House’s Supported Recovery Program is specifically designed to meet the needs of adults who have co-occurring issues of domestic violence and substance use. Treatment is provided at Hope House’s Independence and Lee’s Summit campuses to the agency’s shelter and outreach populations. (In 2019, 106 unduplicated adults received services through the Supported Recovery Program. Of those served in 2019, 93% received services while residing in Hope House's shelter facility.)
Ongoing Care In Shelter & After Leaving Shelter
Clients who access the Supported Recovery Program while in shelter may remain in individual and group counseling for the length of their stay and continue on an outreach basis after leaving shelter.
Program services/activities include identification of unhealthy coping skills, thought patterns, life-style choices, and behaviors that put clients at risk for domestic violence, substance use, and criminal activity.
Interventions include individual and group counseling, treatment planning, service linkage and resource referrals, and aftercare planning. Services are directed to help clients develop alternatives in these identified areas with the goal of increasing survivors' ability to maintain sobriety and minimize the risk of relapse.
Best practices are ensured by adhering to SAMHSA’s CSAT Treatment Improvement Protocols (TIPs), consensus-based guidelines developed by clinical, research, and administrative experts in the field. Clinicians participate in training regularly to remain current on best practices and maintain their licensure.
All Hope House employees are required to complete, within their first six months of employment, 20 hours of trauma-informed care training based on the Risking Connection® model. The Risking Connection® model is one of the recommended curriculums for Certification of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs by the Missouri Department of Mental Health Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse.
The goal of Hope House's Supported Recovery Program is to provide survivors of domestic violence with information related to the co-occurrence of substance use and domestic violence in an effort to bring awareness of their own personal experience of domestic violence and substance use; to increase their awareness of patterns and triggers related to substance use: and to enhance their protective factors in order to increase their ability to maintain sobriety and minimize their risk of relapse.
Domestic violence and substance use can be experienced by any individual in the community. As such, Hope House's Supported Recovery Program is available to any survivor of domestic violence who also has current or previous substance use issues.
