What is Living Hope?
Living Hope Christian Ministries is an 18-24 month Faith-based residential program for men who struggle with: Drug addiction, alcoholism, MICA, prescription drugs, and other life controlling problems.
Living Hope Christian Ministries Inc. is a non-profit Organization with a 501 C3 whose mission is to provide services to the MICA and the non MICA population (Mentally Ill Chemically Addicted),mildly dually diagnosed throughout the Tri State area, Westchester, Nassau, Suffolk,and New Jeesey. Living Hope offers a complete range of intergrated services so that individuals who are dually diagnosed with diverse needs may realize their full potentials for achieving meaningful goals by principles of independence, wellness, spirituality, and recovery.
During this (Recommended) 18-24 months, our goal is to address the whole man: spiritually, (clinically,vocationally through independent / outpatient services provided in the community), physically, and socially.
Our approach is to develop discipline and good character in a loving, Christ-centered environment. Also, because we recognize that everyone is unique and because of our sensitive MICA populations, therefore we have extended our stay from 18-24 months to as long as it takes for the student to grow, transform, build a strong foundation and obtain all the necessary skills needed to remain successful as a Christian in the community.
