House of Hope Expands Outpatient Services for Substance Abuse Treatment

Fort Lauderdale, FL (March 15, 2018) – On average, two people per day die in Broward County due to drug abuse and more resources are needed. To meet the growing demand of substance abuse, House of Hope is expanding its outpatient programming.

The goal of House of Hope’s outpatient programs is to provide substance abuse treatment and support to those seeking treatment while remaining in their homes or in the care of their family and friends. These programs consist of weekly individual sessions and therapeutic groups. In addition, outpatient services allow clients to maintain their current lifestyle and meet work, school or family obligations while undergoing treatment.

“As the disturbing rise in opioid and other addictions continues, making House of Hope’s outpatient services available to more substance abuse patients is crucial to keeping South Florida citizens healthy, sober and self-sufficient,” says Sue Glasscock, CEO of House of Hope. “If we have a person who is struggling with substance abuse, this program can help prevent it from progressing, and avoid the client having to receive much costlier intensive programming through residential care in the future.”

Features of House of Hope’s expanded outpatient program include in-house Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics meetings, codependency groups, living skills, relapse prevention groups and open process groups. All clients are supported by House of Hope’s clinical staff as they learn more about themselves and how to make the necessary changes to start living a sober life.

House of Hope’s outpatient programs are funded in part by Health Foundation of South Florida. Intensive outpatient services are offered on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and outpatient services are offered on Tuesdays.
