Our Recovery Bridge Housing program is supported by the County of Los Angeles, and offers a short -term living arrangement for women enrolled in outpatient care. Some women from residential care take advantage of this housing after completing primary care, and some members of Recovery Bridge Housing attend the House of Hope outpatient program. With this continuum of care, women can maintain their housing past 90-days of inpatient treatment, and / or find a supportive housing solution while enrolled in outpatient treatment.
Women are encouraged to join the alumnae group which meets twice a month. It is a great way to reengage in social events, to learn to interact with others on a committee level, and to bring joy to the primary women through outside activities. The alumnae holds fundraising activities such as the annual Tea, Fashion Show and Silent Auction, an annual fun run, or pancake breakfast. The funds are used to treat the women in primary to an outing such as the movies or a trip to an amusement park.
The Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) 12 step program is the most widely attended self-help program for those who are recovering from alcoholism. In addition, there are 12 step programs for family and friends of addicts which provide support, education and a program to help them heal and forgive others. Family members are strongly encouraged to regularly attend Al-Anon meetings.
AA’s 12 step program has been adapted to address other addictions. These programs follow the same 12 step structure and principles for recovery. The 12 Step program’s 12 traditions allows for the creation of a community of people with a common problem looking for a solution. The nature of the program is to provide support, a program of action, and ultimately create a spiritual environment which helps one heal. Anyone can use these steps to live a better life.
House of Hope, as part of a local recovery network, can provide immediate access and referrals to an extensive range of recovery and treatment services.
