In 2014, heroin was reported as the primary drug in 81% of the opioid treatment admissions and two-thirds of those patients reported daily use of heroin. Current statistics have only risen to epidemic levels and have quadrupled. Synthetic opioids such as Fentanyl are present in more than three-quarters of all overdose deaths in NYC.
There are many drug rehabilitation programs in New York, but there are benefits to attending an out-of-state addiction program.
At the Manor of Hope, we have residents from a few miles away in Southeast Pennsylvania, to New York, Maryland, Ohio, Washington, and Massachusetts to all the way across the country in California and down in Florida.
It doesn’t matter what part of the country you are from, our post-rehab support program is one of the best and most comprehensive programs you will find for young men needing help with overcoming their addiction.
Being away from home can be easier for our residents to concentrate on becoming healthy and immerse themselves in our program without distraction. That said, we have made parents, friends, and family a huge part of the Manor of Hope program. Nurturing these supportive relationships can be transformative and we have many “get-togethers” throughout the year including Father’s and Mother’s Day picnics, Christmas, golf outings, special family meals, and many more events for our residents’ extended families.
Once our residents have finished our main program, they are able to keep valued friendships and connections and live in our Graduate Housing a few miles away from the Manor of Hope campus. There, they will enjoy a sense of freedom while having the support system of the Manor at hand. We continue teaching vital life skills such as money management. Many residents at the Graduate Housing enjoy coming to the Manor of Hope to mentor new residents and share their experiences around the beautiful grounds, campfire, and walking trails.
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.
