Outpatient Programs

Intensive Outpatient Program is specifically designed for adults experiencing a history of frequent relapse from drugs and alcohol. The program emphasizes education interventions so that clients can learn social, physical, and emotional effects of drugs and alcohol. Clients receive four group sessions per week lasting 2 hours each, and a weekly individual session lasting 1 hour. The duration of this program is 6-8 weeks.

Extended Outpatient Program is designed for clients who are believed to have a firm grasp of the basic concepts of staying sober, working through individual roadblocks, and requiring less structure to maintain sobriety. The program is individualized, but lasts a minimum of 6 weeks. Adolescent Extended Outpatient groups for those ages 12 to 17 are also offered.

HOPE Program: An in-home, time-limited, intensive substance abuse program designed for families with children ages 0-18 that are in crisis - primarily as a result of substance abuse issues. This program is free and is intended to empower families in developing a secure environment or their children by assisting parents in gaining formal and informal supports in the community.

Access to Recovery (ATR) is funded by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) which provides vouchers to clients for purchases of ATR covered services. ATR-Iowa focuses on serving individuals in recovery from substance abuse. At our center, the ATR covered services include: Care Coordination, Life Skills, Coaching, Gas Cards, Bus Passes, Recovery Calls, Supplemental Needs, Recovery Coaching, and referrals to other ATR covered services. Clients must meet income eligibility guidelines.

Hope House specializes in providing residential drug and alcohol addiction treatment to pregnant women and women with children. This program is unique in that children attend treatment with their mothers so that the family can recover together. Hope House staff recognize addiction as a disease that affects all aspects of a person's life. The length of treatment depends on the individual and level of care needed to begin healing and recovery. Women participate in scheduled programming which includes community groups, family therapy, and 12-Step meetings.

Hope House receives funding from The Ottumwa Regional Legacy Foundation.
