House of Hope

Focus & Mission

House of Hope is a private, non-profit organization offering residential, day treatment, and outpatient substance use disorders treatment for adult women. Our mission is to provide addiction recovery and behavioral health services to help reclaim and rebuild lives, strengthen families, instill accountability and promote personal growth. Services are offered in two locations: Salt Lake City and Provo, Utah.  

History & Treatment Services

Founded in 1946, House of Hope is the oldest provider of substance use disorders treatment in Utah. Originally opened for men only, House of Hope expanded in 1956 to include women facing substance use disorders as well.  During the same year, our Provo campus opened to meet the demand for treatment in Utah County.  As time passed, House of Hope began to focus on an urgent need in the community for gender-specific programming and restructured its services to treat issues unique to women in recovery (domestic violence, physical/sexual abuse, parenting skills, depression and interpersonal relationships).  

House of Hope's treatment services are designed to teach women the skills necessary to succeed in sobriety, improve the mother/child bonding process, improve parenting skills, and help them transition back into employment, home, and community. Services include individualized assessments; group, individual, and family counseling; substance use disorders education; life skills classes; relapse prevention techniques; parenting classes; case management; and aftercare services. 

In Salt Lake City, our program encompasses a treatment center, four residential homes and the Hope Center for Children. The Hope Center provides developmental and therapeutic childcare for the children of women attending House of Hope. It also provides parent/child counseling, hands-on parent coaching, and parenting skill instruction and supervised visitation to mothers working to be reunited with their children in custody of the Department of Children and Family services. 

House of Hope's Provo Campus transitioned in 2003 to an intensive substance use recovery residential facility for women, pregnant women and mothers. Identical to its Salt Lake program, House of Hope Provo provides individual assessments and counseling, substance use educations, behavioral management, life and parenting skills. This program focuses on helping each family successfully return to their home community by connecting them with local providers for the continued treatment and support services they will need.  Children of our mothers in treatment, attend play therapy and skill development groups during the day. continued services after their mothers' complete treatment work with case managers to ensure parents are linked to appropriate community resources.
