Setting Men’s Treatment Center Standards
Our staff is dedicated to the welfare of each client. Because many of us are in recovery ourselves, we understand exactly what our clients are feeling. This gives us a compassionate, dedicated perspective to recovery that makes Destination Hope a leader in addiction treatment in the U.S.
Every man in our program receives the highest level of clinical care to ensure the maximum focus on recovery.
Destination Hope provides patients with the knowledge and tools to overcome their addiction not only when they leave our facility, but the rest of their lives.
Our focus and mission is simple, but vitally important: to be a treatment program that not only focuses on the addiction, but also on the underlying causes of the disease. Destination Hope is committed to helping our clients develop practical tools that they can use to resist and avoid relapse.
We connect with our clients in a meaningful way, giving them the tools to beat addiction and live happy, successful and sober lives. The men who come through our program leave with a sense of empowerment, and often credit the role they had in their own treatment as a key to their success in staying sober after treatment.
Levels of Care at our Recovery Center
Drug and Alcohol Programs tailored to your loved one’s needs
At Destination Hope, our men’s drug and alcohol treatment program is primarily offered at a residential level of care. This means that clients move into our facility and live there for a period of time. An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is also available to those who cannot devote their full time to treatment or need more structured assistance as they return to their busy lives after treatment.
For each of our programs, we provide a realistic setting to show our clients how to practically apply what they learn in recovery to real-life situations.
Choosing the right level of care
As soon as a client is admitted into one of our treatment programs, they receive a physical and psychological assessment that is the foundation for their unique treatment plan and level of care. If we confirm that they are also suffering from a mental health disorder, they will participate in our dual diagnosis program.
The final program will be chosen by one of our trained addiction specialists after a thorough examination of the client and their circumstances.
Destination Hope works with several trusted medical detox centers nearby, but does not provide detox services on site. These centers work to minimize the harmful effects of withdrawal and make the detox experience safe and comfortable.
At Destination Hope, we offer residential-style treatment in 30, 60 and 90 programs for men suffering from drug or alcohol addiction. Treatment is also available to clients that have a co-occurring mental health diagnosis.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP) is a less restrictive drug and alcohol treatment program for clients with full-time work or school obligations and a safe home environment that supports recovery. The program is 3-4 hours, 3 days a week for a minimum of 6 weeks.
Destination Hope is proud to be an ally to the LGBTQ community. As a member of the LGBTQ community, you may believe that it will be difficult to find a recovery center that will meet your individual needs. You may be uncomfortable entering a traditional recovery program or receiving help from those unfamiliar with helping LGBTQ community members.
At Destination Hope, we welcome everyone. You can rest assured that you will be welcomed with open arms to a comfortable, safe and understanding environment. Drug addiction affects individuals from all walks of life, but statistics reveal that the LGBTQ community is afflicted by higher rates of substance abuse. According to the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, the percentage of LGBTQ community members admitting to illicit drug use was much higher than the rate of those who are heterosexual.
Statistics on Substance Abuse & Addiction
- In the past year, 39.1% of LGBTQ adults used illicit drugs, compared to 17.1% of heterosexual adults
- LGBTQ adults drank at higher rates compared to heterosexual adults (63.6% compared to 56.2%)
- Men who identify as LGBTQ were more likely to abuse alcohol than their heterosexual counterparts
- The rate of substance abuse among LGBTQ adults was higher (15.1%) than for heterosexual adults (7.8%) across all age and gender groups
Substance Abuse Factors among LGBTQ Individuals
There are many reasons why people turn to drugs or alcohol. For those in the LGBTQ community, some of these factors include:
- Stress from discrimination, stigma, and/or family rejection
- Attempting to numb or enhance sexual feelings
- Easing feelings of shame or guilt related to their identity
- Peer pressure and wanting to belong
Many of the factors contributing to the development of addiction can also prevent LGBTQ individuals from seeking the help they need. Addiction, as well as mental illness, can carry a social stigma, and identifying as LGBTQ can increase the stigma.
