House of Hope

House of Hope

The House of Hope, founded in 1946, is the oldest provider of alcohol and chemical dependency services in Utah.

House of Hope is a private, non-profit organization that provides a continuum of comprehensive alcoholism and chemical dependency treatment, prevention, and education services in Salt Lake City, Provo, and Ogden, Utah.

This program provides services to pregnant women, women who are trying to reunite with their children and mothers with up to three children who are having problems coping due to chemical addiction. Children may reside with their mothers while they attend the House of Hope residential program.

The House of Hope is designed for intensive drug free residential and intensive day treatment for women who require this level of service. The House of Hope program is based on the Bio-Psycho-Social model of treatment that views addiction as a disease, and provides holistic treatment to attain wellness.

The program is family oriented and very supportive in nature. School-aged children attend the local elementary school. Younger children attend the Hope Center for Children while their mothers concentrate on treatment. All mothers learn positive parenting skills, communication skills, and attend group individual and family counseling, as well as substance abuse educational groups, life skills classes and relapse prevention education. Parent-child assessments and family bonding are important components of the program. The goal is to help families bond, reunite and re-enter the community.

How We Help

The Willow Canyon Foundation provides treatment scholarships to select women at the House of Hope. The women are selected by our scholarship board and are generally young mothers who have been traumatized by abuse and/or violence. We have provided numerous treatment scholarships so far and because of the great track record of success at House of Hope, we plan to continue and hopefully expand our involvement.
