Assessment & Recommendation

Restoring Hope - Healing from Trauma and Addiction completes trauma assessments, DUI evaluations and addiction assessments, which screen for alcohol, drug, and behavioral addictions.

All assessments are used, in collaboration with the participant, to determine the best treatment option which are tailored to the participants individual and specific needs.

Restoring Hope can complete the assessment and have the results back to you or your provider within 72 business hours of administering the assessment. Participation in this assessment does not require admission into Restoring Hope’s program.

Trauma-Informed Treatment

Restoring Hope recognizes the signs of trauma in individuals seeking services and therefore uses a universal precautions approach, committed to safety and healing through resistance in re-traumatization of participants.

Restoring Hope-Healing from Trauma and Addiction has adopted SAMHSAs concept and framework for trauma-informed treatment. The concept of trauma is defined as

"Individual trauma results from an event, series of events, or set of circumstances that is experienced by an individual as physically or emotionally harmful or life threatening and that has lasting adverse effects on the individual’s functioning and mental, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual being. (SAMHSA, 2014)"

Restoring Hope uses inclusive trauma-specific interventions which are designed to work alongside each participant, providing a calming and accepting environment. Restoring Hope promotes resilience and recovery for individuals and families impacted by trauma and addiction. Restoring Hope uses SAMHSAs Six Key Principles:

  1. Safety
  2. Trustworthiness and Transparency
  3. Peer Support
  4. Collaboration and Mutuality
  5. Empowerment, Voice and Choice
  6. Cultural, Historical, and Gender Issues

Each staff member at Restoring Hope, from the administrative staff to the Board of Directors, have completed an initial trauma-informed competency training program and continue to receive on-going trainings, creating a culture of hope and healing throughout the recovery process.

Individual Therapy

Restoring Hope – Healing from Trauma and Addiction provides individual therapy where the participant and the therapist meet on a one-on-one basis.

The therapeutic approach is person-centered and trauma-focused, which may include phyco-educational approaches to help in stabilization and safety building, trauma-informed cognitive behavioral approaches, which incorporate relaxation techniques and are used to assist in the reduction of physiological arousal (activation of the "fight-flight-freeze-faint" responses), as well as other combined treatment methods.
