steve's testimonial for Manor of hope therapeutic community

We explore a range of subjects about what a therapeutic community is and how it is used as an effective model for the treatment of addiction issues.

Manor of Hope is a long-term, structured therapeutic community that assists men battling mental health and addiction challenges.

We offer long-term support with an emphasis on living a substance-free lifestyle and building self-efficacy.

With guidance from top mental health and addiction professionals, our residents are given the best chance at stopping the cycle of self-destructive behaviors while finding a life of meaning and wellness.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse regarding types of treatment programs, “The best-known residential treatment model is the therapeutic community (TC), with planned lengths of stay of between 6 and 12 months. TCs focus on the “re-socialization” of the individual and use the program’s entire community—including other residents, staff, and the social context—as active components of treatment”.


The Manor of Hope provides our residents:

  • A highly structured, phased program
  • A culture of acceptance, patience, respect and care
  • Clinical, legal, medical, and educational advocacy
  • Vocational & life-skills training
  • Healthy meals and culinary enrichment
  • All necessary off-site transportation throughout the length of stay
  • Group recreational activities and trips
  • A paid, woodworking apprenticeship program
  • Aftercare planning
  • On-campus graduate housing

Wellness is a lifelong journey, and we’re here to support our residents every step of the way.
