Home » Our Addiction Support Program For Men

Manor of Hope is a world-class post-rehab addiction support program that functions as a small, boutique therapeutic community 

Our size of 16 residents and 8 staff members is designed to provide the necessary attention to address the needs of every community member.

It is one of the few programs in the country to provide such comprehensive care for men struggling with the disease of addiction.

What leads to our outcomes is a combination of support from the community, a high staff-to-resident ratio, structure, restrictions, programming, and time. 

Addiction and mental health disorders affect people from all walks of life and our residents arrive with unique assets, challenges, and goals.

Our dedicated staff spends countless hours learning the details of each case to create the most appropriate, realistic treatment plan. From that assessment, we work with our residents to build a path of support necessary to achieve their goals. Residents receive regular clinical support and mentoring sessions from staff.

We have a wealth of experience helping our residents navigate the systems and challenges that have traditionally prevented them from finding success.

Unfortunately, with addiction, there is no quick fix. 

Changing someone’s brain chemistry and adapting their behaviors cannot be achieved through a short-term rehab program and that is why so many fail at long-term sobriety.

MORE HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR ADDICTION SUPPORT PROGRAM ↴

Our residents are supervised by highly trained treatment professionals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

It’s extremely important that your loved one has access to the best and most reliable care around the clock. At Manor of Hope, our staff are experts in the field of addiction support and are available at any time of the day or night to ensure that he has a constant support system in place. This also gives you and your family the peace of mind that he is in a safe place and well taken care of.

We are a small therapeutic community providing long-term addiction support in a family environment.

Our capacity is 16 residents and 8 staff members.

 Many addiction rehabilitation centers strive to admit as many people as possible to “fill” a huge amount of beds. At the Manor of Hope, we have a limited amount of spots and will never exceed that amount, ensuring that each resident is provided the optimum amount of care and support. Your loved one will live in a beautifully renovated farmhouse, he will have daily chores to help maintain the house and learn how to respect his environment. This means your loved one will be surrounded by expert staff who will provide personal and individualized care at all times.

Having a high staff-to-resident ratio is crucial to the success of our program. Every resident gets the focused attention that he needs to be successful in his recovery. Meet our leadership team.

Family is important! Our residents are each treated with the same respect and given equal support. They live in a family environment and eat meals, exercise, go on weekend adventures, and spend time there together.

Residents who have been in Manor of Hope’s program mentor new residents and offer their support.

We also highly value family participation and residents’ parents and families are invited to events and Holidays and share in their loved ones’ support.

All meals at the Manor of Hope are included and prepared by our Director of Nutrition, Chef Andrew Deery.

Food has a huge effect on the body and the mind. The Manor of Hope adheres to a strict no-sugar policy. Sugar is highly addictive! Most rehab centers provide low-quality, processed foods which can negatively affect mental and physical health. We are believers in “you are what you eat”!

Chef Andrew Deery (former owner of famed restaurant Majolica in Phoenixville, PA) has developed a unique Culinary Enrichment Program that supports nutrition and healthy eating for all of the residents. He uses a hands-on approach, giving the guys lessons about how to prepare food, come up with healthy meals, and give them the tools to be able to cook for themselves in a healthy way.

To help prepare our residents for life on their own when they graduate, we teach them how to shop for groceries, make healthy food choices, and prepare meals for themselves.

Manor of Hope has two professional chefs on staff who use fresh ingredients including produce from the Manor’s own organic garden.

Our residents not only help to create the garden, but they also maintain and care for it during the growing season. The guys are proud of the garden and also reap the benefits from their hard work by eating fabulously prepared, healthy meals that include organic fruit and vegetables.

We also make it a priority to keep each family up-to-date on their loved one’s progress. Our founder, Steve Killelea personally calls them and keeps in contact throughout their stay. This provides the family with the security of knowing that their loved one is safe and doing well at the Manor!

Many of our residents have been in and out of drug rehabs countless times only to relapse. Most rehabs are only 30-90 days – not nearly enough time for the body to rid itself of drugs or dependency.

Our post-detox program focuses on long-term healing of the body and mind.

Our residents are each treated with the same respect and support. They live in a family environment and eat meals, exercise, go on weekend adventures and all spend time together. We also involve their parents and families in many of our events.

WHAT WE DO FOR RESIDENT ADVOCACY ↴

We provide our residents with support for any legal concerns.

A unique element of our comprehensive program includes legal advocacy. Many times a resident will have prior legal issues connected to their addiction including past arrests, litigation, etc. The Manor of Hope is an advocate for its residents with legal issues and also helps in the coordination of lawyer visits and court-related appointments as well as providing transportation to those appointments.

We have access to some of the top therapists in the country and take our residents several times per week for individual therapy. We coordinate and supervise with all of our medical and clinical partners.

Each of our residents lives 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. Read our FAQ’s page: What is a therapeutic community?

Manor of Hope residents are part of a community where each person is held accountable to follow the rules celebrate the wins and support the struggles.

We provide transportation to all resident commitments.

Because each of our residents has different commitments associated with their medical appointments and healthcare as well as legal and other appointments, the Manor of Hope coordinates and provides transportation. A detailed scheduling of appointments is required to maintain all of his daily routines and therapies but to also make sure that these mandatory appointments and visits are met.

CONTINUING CARE FOR OUR RESIDENTS ↴

Our young men are trained to learn skills to help them thrive after leaving Manor of Hope.

Because many of our residents have missed out on basic life skills while under the influence of their addictions, the staff at Manor of Hope provides life skills training to ensure that they will be capable of living on their own once they have completed the program. This includes basic skills like cooking, cleaning, and maintaining a living space as well as other crucial skills such as preparing taxes and money management.

We help them open their own bank accounts, where they (through the Building Futures Program) deposit their earned income. At the end of their stay at the Manor, they are given full access to their accounts. The money that they’ve saved can be used to buy a car, help with rent or anything else that will help them become productive, addiction-free citizens.

We teach all of our residents to become a valued part of their community once they complete the program. They take part in many local community outreach programs and donate their services and time.

Rehab aftercare plays a crucial role in the recovery journey of our residents who have completed our addiction treatment program.
