The Salvation Army Hope House is located in Grand Junction, Colorado and was established to offer treatment for those suffering from a variety of drug and alcohol addictions. The structure is two buildings, one that houses the addiction treatment programs and another that house the non-profit agencies that help individuals and families find the treatment they need. With the help of these two different types of care, an individual can recover from their addiction and lead a productive life. There is no question that the residents here have a better chance at recovery and will return to a more normal life.
When entering the Hope House, you are greeted with uplifting music, Bible readings, spiritual teaching, and group discussions. Within the walls, recovering addicts from all walks of life learn to share and take advantage of the resources found here. This is not a place for those looking for a quick fix or to just stop using. Instead, those who attend receive education on the cause and importance of fighting substance abuse. They also learn how to develop a plan of action to combat substance abuse and how to prepare themselves and their loved ones for the process.
At the Hope House, one does not only go through the twelve-step treatment plan that is taught by the treatment counselors; they also participate in group discussions that tackle the problem of substance abuse. These conversations are not only beneficial for the individuals attending, but the residents as well. They learn to identify the negative thoughts that are plaguing their minds and are able to turn them around so they can fight the negative thoughts and conquer them. The residents here receive treatment from both a medical and non-medical detox regimen. During the detox, they will be subjected to a variety of therapies, from behavioral therapy to social and psychological treatment so that they can battle the influences of substance abuse.
