Our Connecticut Addiction Support Program for Men
Our addiction rehab support program is different from most substance abuse rehab programs in the USA.
We are a “Therapeutic Community.”
A therapeutic community is a group-based approach to addiction treatment where the focus is on healing the whole person and not simply enforcing abstinence from drug or alcohol use.
Our young men learn to live with purpose and acquire the skills that they need to recover and become substance-free. We focus on their future and guide them through their recovery to a place where they are strong, healthy, and confident.
We support the medical, psychological, social, and vocational challenges that accompany the disease of addiction. By providing our residents with a supportive and healing atmosphere, they are able to realize a successful outcome and transition back into their communities.
Highlights of our addiction support program include:
- 24/7 monitoring

- post-detox support
- therapeutic peer-to-peer interaction
- long-term treatment
- small intensive program
- ability to learn a trade

5 Reasons why our addiction rehab support program is successful

Our addiction rehabilitation support program focuses on healing through hard work, exercise, proper diet and 12-step support as well as alternative therapies to produce a well-rounded and multi-approach method of rehabilitation.
Residents will find spiritual healing through meditation, art therapy and self-examination.
FOOD: Food can have a huge effect on the body. Our young men healthily.
Sugary foods and drinks can cause medical issues as well as create huge sugar highs and lows which can negatively affect mood. Sugar is also highly addictive! On-staff at the Manor of Hope are 2 professional chefs who use fresh ingredients from local farmers as well as from our own organic garden. Our residents not only help him maintain the garden and care for the organic fruit and vegetables, but they also reap the benefits from their hard work by eating fabulously prepared, healthy meals from the crop. You are what you eat!
Our Culinary Director, Andrew Deery worked under James Beard awarded chef, Sam Hayward. While there, he gained an appreciation for the seasonality of ingredients and the surrounding network of local farmers, foragers, and fishermen. his own restaurant, Majolica where he was awarded the “3-Bell Review” from an acclaimed food critic, Craig Laban of the Philadelphia Inquirer. While at Majolica, he received numerous awards and accolades, including the “Best Chef of Chester County.” He was also highlighted in many magazines and publications as well as being included on the cover of internationally circulated Art Culinaire Magazine.

EXERCISE: Daily exercise along with a good diet can have an amazing impact on the body’s health and mental well-being.
Residents at the Manor are taught how to take care of their bodies through a 2 hour daily exercise regime at a local gym. On weekends, we also stress athletic activities such as hiking in Valley Forge Park, trips to the New Jersey shore, canoeing in the Schuylkill river, golf, zip lining, bowling, etc. Not only will they improve their physical health, they will also learn that exercise will make them sleep better, heal their brains, help with anxiety and anger management and boost their self esteem.
Our Director, Jose Rivera wrote an article on the benefits of exercise and mental health and how it positively affects our young men.
THERAPY: Our residents are taken several times a week to some of the Philadelphia’s best addiction therapists.
A therapeutic community is a participatory, group based approach that improves the likelihood of long term recovery. Each of our residents live in a family environment where they support each other’s’ successes. They motivate each other to be strong and encourage each other to take responsibility for themselves.
Manor of Hope residents are part of a community where each person is held accountable to follow the rules and celebrate the wins and support the stumbles.
FUTURE CAREER OPPORTUNITIES: Each of our young men are given the chance to work with a small business partners within our local community.
The “Building Futures Program” is a unique program which strategically places residents to work alongside local business owners to learn a trade or skill. Many of our residents did not have jobs prior to coming to the Manor of Hope, their lives were wrapped around the all-encompassing scourge of addiction. Early in the program our residents are monitored to determine strengths, weaknesses, likes & dislikes. We’ve strategically focussed on businesses in the area that are perfect for creating an environment where our young men can work closely alongside them to learn the new skills which they need to have a future career.
We also help them open their own bank accounts, learn about money management and other life-skills. They earn money and deposit their weekly earnings to start them on their way. At the end of their stay, they’ll be given full access to their accounts and can use the money they’ve saved to buy a car or help with rent.
We teach residents responsibility, how to work hard and take pride in their work. It is a program like no other! Learn more about our Building Futures Program.
The epidemic in Connecticut has been expanding despite officials efforts to control the situation.
On average 2 people die of a drug overdose every day in Connecticut.
Opioid and heroin deaths are now spreading to CT suburban towns with lower median incomes tending to have the highest rates of death from drug overdoses in Connecticut.
Within Connecticut, Waterbury, Hartford, and New Haven are consistently ranked in the first 3 towns with the most overdose deaths every year since 2012.
Deaths from fentanyl have jumped by 165%. Some of the fentanyl recovered and tested has been found to be a less-pure version than what you would receive in a hospital and typically laced with heroin to increase its potency and ultimately increasing the chances of death. Fentanyl is now no longer an “inner city” issue. It is moving to the suburbs and rural areas at a high rate.
CT towns with the most opioid overdoses in 2016:
- Hartford: 62
- Bridgeport: 49
- New Haven: 44
- Bristol: 35
- New Britain: 35
- Waterbury 33
