The H.O.P.E. Program

Long Term Inpatient Program Exclusively for Active-Duty Females and Female Veterans


The H.O.P.E. Program serves active duty and veteran females from the effects of Military Sexual Trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress, and Co-Occurring disorders, and is based on a bio-psycho-social-spiritual model of treatment and is dedicated to treating the whole person. While our program is structured with consistent daily activities, our staff recognizes that each client that enters is an individual, and the program is specialized to her needs. In this way the program attempts to provide a safe place for military members and veterans to heal and recover.

Our treatment program is based on the integration of evidence-based approaches. These include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, the Twelve Step Models of Recovery, and Motivational Interviewing/Readiness to Change Counseling, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Health Promotion, Family Systems Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Seeking Safety. Each client who attends the program may not receive all of the above treatments mentioned, as treatment is individualized to her specific needs. Our mission is to equip individuals with the tools needed to maintain recovery from past trauma and addictions while moving forward as productive and healthy members of society.
