Our Program

Here at Hope House, we run a 30 day program geared towards
recovery from addiction and life skills training.

Some of the programming we offer:

  • Individual and Group Counseling
  • Goal setting
  • Vision Boards (past, present,
    future changes)
  • Communication and conflict
    resolution
  • Anger Management
  • Self-care
  • Addiction Education and Relapse
    prevention strategies
  • Nutrition and sleep hygiene
  • Safety plans (for relapse
    prevention)
  • Recreational activities and outings

Apart from sitting down and having open discussions, we also
strive to teach youth important life skills including: grocery shopping and
cooking, personal hygiene, and computer skills / resume building.

In-house activities include: painting / drawing, board games /video
games, music, cooking / baking and any other activities that youth may be
interested in. Art Therapy (painting/drawing) has become a growing
interest to many of our youth. It is truly amazing how they can demonstrate
their passion and pride in their artwork.

Out-of-house activities include: going to gym / pool, going to the
library to sign out books / magazines / use the library computers, occasional
lunch outings, day trips to Sooke / various beaches, museum visits, movie
theatre outings, and any other activities that youth may be interested in. Each
day, we arrange for a different outing to keep the youth active / motivated. Other outings include: going to the Sanctuary Youth
Centre
(where youth can play pool, have
snacks, listen to music, and visit with other youth within their age group).

Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous 12 step meetings
are offered to our residents if they are interested. Staff will transport youth
to these meetings out in the community upon youth requests.
