About Hope Village’s Treatment


Adapted from Hazelden Betty Ford’s “12 Questions to Ask Every Addiction Provider”

What kind of licensing or accreditation does Hope Village have?

Hope Village was certified by the state (OhioMHAS) and contracted with Medicaid late 2018. We are certified as both a substance use disorder and mental health provider. As a new agency, Hope Village is in the application process of certification. Our services are licensed by our clinicians. We will be certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) as a substance use and mental health treatment provider. OhioMHAS is a state agency responsible for offering oversight and direction to all community mental health and substance use providers.

Although not required, OhioMHAS encourages all certified agencies to also seek national accreditation. Hope Village will also apply and schedule that accreditation with the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). CARF is an international organization that has very specific and universal quality standards. In accordance with CARF standards, Hope Village will schedule that survey for the 2nd quarter of 2020. six months after the date we begin services. CARF requires an agency to operate for six months so that they can survey an operating agency.

What kind of licensing and credentials does our staff have at Hope Village?

Our therapists, case managers and peer supporters all hold various licenses and certifications that qualify them to complete their jobs and ensures that they meet the proper qualifications and have the expected level of training and expertise to engage in treatment.

These state licensing bodies include:

  • Ohio Counselor, Social Worker and Marriage and Family Therapist Board
  • Ohio Chemical Dependency Professionals Board
  • OhioMHAS

All staff are also supervised by high level licensed professionals with expertise in Substance Abuse Disorder and Mental Health treatment and supervision.

Have there been studies to measure the effectiveness of the program's addiction treatment methods?

At Hope Village, our entire treatment model is built around programs and treatment protocols that have been endorsed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). SAMHSA is the federal agency that researches treatment for Substance Abuse Disorders and Mental Health.

All of the treatment programs and protocols that are published are based on research and evidence that is proven effective and considered best practice.

What is the patient to counselor ratio?

At Hope Village, we know that a client’s ability to connect with a therapist who is vested in their treatment outcomes is paramount to client success. We have made a commitment to ensure that groups have a lower ratio than is required by our licensing.

Does the program offer individualized treatment program?

Hope Village is committed to person-centered and individualized treatment. Everyone will receive an assessment that supports this principle. Our staff is credentialed, trained and experienced so that the client will be given options that produce a successful outcome.

Assessing all the unique factors up front and throughout the early part of the treatment process is critical to the outcome. Engaging in a plan that fits the client true needs can make all the difference in the outcome. A collaborative plan by a diverse, engaged team, with the ability to adjust quickly, is the key to an individualized plan.

An agency that respects and offers all paths to recovery can keep client engaged as they experience and apply this process.

Does the program address a full range of needs to help the individual including medical, psychological, spiritual, social, and health and wellness issues?

To create a fully individualized treatment program to address all the needs of clients, as well as to ensure long-term success in recovery, research supports that all aspects of client’s wellness need to be addressed.

Our treatment team maps out a practical plan and works through a holistic approach (with realistic examples) of options and timelines to help with balance and priority. This process helps break down this concept into smaller, attainable tasks and goals. The result is true support in helping one gain and sustain momentum in getting your life back.

Our support staff of case managers and peer recovery supporters help overcome any barriers to other services. Our network of relationships with other providers helps bridge the gaps to engagement in the overall treatment plan.
