“We are committed to creating a world class facility that will change our current views of what effective recovery programs look like in the U.S.”
We believe that successful, addiction treatment must incorporate 3 essential components
Find the root cause of the addiction
Allow time for healing
Lifestyle change through learning
Our Maryland Post Rehab Support Program
Our long term post rehab support program is different than 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
- treatment for young men
- post-detox support
- therapeutic peer-to-peer interaction
- long-term treatment
- small intensive program
- ability to learn a trade or skill
- eat farm-to-table cuisine and learn about nutrition
- access to Philadelphia area’s finest addiction specialists
5 Reasons why our addiction rehab support program is sucessful
STATE-OF-THE-ART PROGRAM: Manor of Hope has taken extreme care in building a top notch program.
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 huge effect on the body. Our program adheres to a strict no sugar policy.
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! The Manor of Hope serves fresh foods and limits processed foods . Our residents have even started their own garden and built a compost bin to grow organic fruit and vegetables. Not only do they reap the benefits from their hard work by eating fabulously prepared, healthy meals from the crop, they are learning how exceptional healthy eating makes you feel. You are what you eat!
EXERCISE: Daily exercise along with a good diet can have an amazing impact on the body’s health and mental well-being.
Our residents 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, paintball, white water rafting, 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.
Our “Building Futures Program” is a unique program which strategically places residents to work alongside small, 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 business owners 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 essential life-skills. Our young men earn wages and deposit their weekly earnings into their own bank accounts. 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 our 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 opioid epidemic in Maryland is one of the worst in the country.
Overdose-related deaths in the first quarter of the year doubled from 2017 to 2016 in Harford County, MD.
The rate of fatal drug and alcohol overdoses int the state of Maryland is continuing at an epidemic pace. This is evident for not only users of heroin, but fentanyl and the even more lethal carfentanyl. Fentanyl and carfentanil are 50 and 100 times more potent than heroin, and deadly in minute quantities.
New data shows that there are sharp increases in heroin and fentanyl overdose deaths and Baltimore county has seen the largest increase of drug-related deaths.
Even Montgomery county, one of the wealthiest counties in Maryland has seen it’s share of opioid deaths. Last year in Montgomery County, there were a total of 102 drug or alcohol intoxication deaths. And of those deaths, 26 were related to prescription opioids, 48 were related to heroin and 43 were related to fentanyl.
Dealing only with the addiction does not ensure a long term recovery. Addiction affects the mind and the body. We teach our residents to develop healthy & positive habits.
The Manor of Hope provides the finest care for young men dealing with substance abuse addiction. We are located in Northeast Pennsylvania, which is just a short drive from Maryland.
