Hope House

For more than 40 years. Where Recovery Lives!

Hope House Inc., founded in 1967, is an award-winning residential recovery program located in the Capital District of New York State.  We offer an intensive, full-immersion therapy program caring for the special needs of adults, teens, and mothers, supported by an Outpatient Clinic and a compassionate Community Services staff.

Partnering with the NYS Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services, Hope House cares for hundreds of clients and their families on a monthly basis.

“Hope House is honored to be a part of the “Faces of Addiction” fashion show and is grateful for the proceeds that will come our way,” said Kevin M. Connally, Executive Director of Hope House, Inc. “Financial support and donations like these help clients that graduate from our programs obtain necessary items, that are often taken for granted – like linens and pots and pans -to start living independently in a sober apartment. This event is not only about raising money; it brings awareness to a problem that is rampant in our community and impacts all of us.” – Hope House

Health Literacy For All
Health Literacy is defined as the “degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions.” (IOM).

In other words, Health Literacy comprises the skills and knowledge one’s doctor, government, and insurance company expect a person to have in order to make good health choices. These can include finding providers, using preventative services, researching health concerns, and applying health information to your lifestyle.

The Center for Disease Control estimates that 88% of Americans struggle with some health literacy skills.
