Hope House opened its doors in 1990 for those who needed help.

For over 30 years, we have delivered specialized SUD treatment along with mental health services in our residential treatment program. We are licensed by the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) and are a certified Drug Medi-Cal program.

Our 16-bed program is operated out of two side-by-side homes in a residential neighborhood. We reserve up to 4 beds for individuals who are pregnant or with infants (clients care for their own child while enrolled). Our mission is to provide individualized SUD treatment in a structured yet warm environment. Our evidence-based, gender specific groups provide the most up-to-date information and techniques to address addiction and other harmful behaviors. We work closely with the courts, probation, parole, and Children and Family Services to address legal issues and reunify individuals with their children when possible. 

After graduating from our program, our alums can receive free services from Hope House via our weekly alumni group and open door policy. Once you graduate from our program, you are a part of the Hope House family. Our culturally sensitive and diverse program welcomes and supports women from all backgrounds.
