HOPE at Cove Forge

At Cove Forge, our philosophy is that chemical dependence is a disease, not a character flaw, and should be treated as such. Throughout the recovery community, and society at large, there is a vast amount of misinformation about addiction and relapse. So much emphasis is placed on the psychological and behavioral factors that contribute to substance abuse, and this is of course warranted. However, at Cove Forge, our programming addresses the disease of addiction on a deeper, neurobiological level.

With a focus on brain chemistry, the HOPE program at Cove Forge began with a query into the ways endorphins in the brain impact addictive behavior. It is well documented that upon ceasing one’s substance abuse, there is a sharp decline in naturally present endorphins in one’s brain, and this drop can contribute to an increased temptation to use again. In addition, drugs like opioids erode the body’s ability to produce this important brain chemical which, over time, causes impaired mood regulation and a host of other negative physiological effects.

To address the destabilized endorphin system that results from opioid abuse, we created the HOPE program, otherwise known as the Heroin Opiate Positive Experience. This program addresses addiction holistically, but focuses on activities and supports that promote healing on a neurobiological level. Using researched-backed treatment modalities, the HOPE program at Cove Forge includes:

  • Humor Group – Clients learn to utilize humor as a brain recovery tool.
  • Exercise Program – Exercise is often considered the most effective way to release endorphins, and promotes both a healthy mind and body.
  • A.W.S. Group – P.A.W.S, otherwise known as Post-Acute Withdrawal Symptoms, is a psychoeducational group that helps our clients learn about managing withdrawal symptoms.
  • Brainwave Entrainment – Brainwave entrainment is a relaxing process in which we expose our clients to repetitive stimuli of sound and light, which is meant to reset their brainwave frequencies.
  • Endorphin-Inducing Foods – Clients can enjoy a blend of strawberry, orange, and berry in our signature pro-endorphin cocktail while learning about healthy eating habits to support endorphin production.
  • IT DID/I DID – IT DID/I DID helps our clients learn how to get their needs met in a positive manner, as well as learn how to become empowered enough to overcome addiction.
  • Big Brother/Big Sister – At Cove Forge, we set our clients up with a mentor in the form of a big brother or a big sister who has gone through similar experiences.
  • Clients are afforded individual sessions for support and education with H.O.P.E. nurses.
  • VIVITROL/ReVia is offered as recovery support option for alcohol and opioid dependence.
