HOPE Program

HOPE is now available to help new or expectant mothers with substance use issues and their recovery efforts, including mothers who have lost custody of their children because of substance use disorder. Participants will be assessed and monitored by a team of treatment and recovery specialists. The team includes a board-certified psychiatrist, family nurse practitioners, a RN case manager, social workers, psychologists and peer recovery support specialists. 

The recovery team will work individually with each participant to meet challenges to receiving care, including transportation, child care and other identified barriers to success within the daily recovery plan.  Participants will be offered classes such as financial planning; how to prepare for a job interview; and how to cope with the stress of parenthood as well as other classes to set them up for success. An on-site child care area will be provided at the clinic and will be staffed by screened and trained volunteers to make accessing care easier. The end goal of the HOPE Program is to help alleviate the foster care crisis in WV by helping mothers maintain their sobriety.
