recovering success stories emerged from the jail classes, the Johnson Somervel CSCD contracted the program fro non-incarcerated
community supervision offenders as well. Through continued successful documented results, the program has continued it's expansion
to numerous counties and continues to positively impact offenders, their families, and the communities in which they live.
When the S.A.F.P. Program was initiated in the State of Texas, the H.O.P.E. Program was used as successful model
of the treatment team concept within the community and assisted in the development of the idea. H.O.P.E. also presented the
idea (and had one of the first) "circuit rider" counselors in the State of Texas for rural areas. The "circuit
rider"counselor would travel to rural areas and provide substance abuse counseling for numerous CSCD's with criminal
justice offenders in the course of a week.
Our qualified staff of licensed professionals are carefully chosen and
receive continuous training on methods to positively impact the resistant criminal justice clients we serve. H.O.P.E. Inc.
is certified as a Continuing Education Provider for continuing education credit (CEU's). H.O.P.E. Inc. is a certified Counselor
Training Institution and is also certified to teach the State Repeat Offender DWI Program, the State Drug Offender Education
Program (D.O.E.P.), the (1st offender ) State Alcohol Educatopn Program. We take great pride in our methods of
operation and in our communication and partnership with the county CSCD's, State, and Federal criminal justice agencies and
licensing authorities whom we serve. The successful reintegration of the criminal justice substance abusing offender back
into society is our mission. The provision of quality, affordable services is our goal.
We are proud of the recicidvism
statistics (based upon studies by the community supervision and corrections departments we serve ) on the effects of the H.O.P.E.
Plan of Action on recidivism.
With tweny four years of experience with recovery and rehabilitation of criminal
justice offenders, we at H.O.P.E. Inc. take great pride in our successful results. Our goal remains to turn the problem into
the solution. Former substance abusers, now productive members of society, become the key ingredient in the successful recovery
of those who follow. They play an active role by becoming "new friends" to those who are leaving "old friends."
The H.O.P.E. Fellowship Continued Care Meetings ( ran by successful volunteer graduates) assit those new
in recovery with the experience, strength, and hope of those who have successfully walked the same path and overcame the same
obsticles those new in recovery are facing. H.O.P.E.'s greatest assets are the people that have succeeded in changing
their lives through the H.O.P.E. Program. Our greatest testimony to our experience in working with criminal justice clients
are the families, the lives, and the local communities restored. Seeing is believing.
