Center of Hope partners with the City of Riverton and Fremont County to offer three days of close observation, as well as 14 days of social detoxification and up to three months transitional living. Transitional living and Social Detox includes substance abuse assessments, daily exercise, morning meditations, evening checkout group, group therapy, living skills and grief and loss, AA/NA meetings, connection to resources for employment and housing as well as access to spiritual support services. The program receives funding through the Wyoming Department of Health. A full time clinician and case workers provide substance abuse assessments and Level I outpatient programming to those in the community in need of it. 

Transitional Living

Volunteers of America recently partnered with the Daniels Fund and the City of Riverton to expand the Center of Hope. This expansion included enhancements to the safe and effective treatment of chronically addicted residents. The 2,500 square foot expansion allows improved security measures, client program separation, administration, after care events and sobriety meetings that help people remain clean and sober.

The purpose of transitional living is to provide individuals, age 18 and older, a safe and structured living environment that is supportive of their recovery efforts.  The Center of Hope provides a drug and alcohol-free environment for individuals who are self-sustaining but who require a minimal level of support and assistance. This is an opportunity for individuals in recovery to live in a safe place while transitioning into mainstream society or awaiting treatment services. Those residing in Transitional Living must also be enrolled in some sort of aftercare program (ASAM level 1 or 2.1) in the local community once treatment has been completed. 


Volunteers of America’s Center of Hope has handled 8,404 intakes since July 1, 2013 and of that number 542 were first time admissions.   What these numbers mean is that VOA is seeing a larger number in the amount of individuals receiving treatment services at the Center of Hope for longer periods of time.  This has resulted in 120 individuals going to residential treatment and 67 individuals going to outpatient treatment.  This success has come since the merger with VOA, because the focus is on a true social detoxification model, assisting in providing various treatment options.  With a full time clinician and case managers, clients receive referrals to other community resources such as sober housing, vocational rehabilitation and Pingora Behavioral Health Clinic to aid them with their sobriety.  

Center of Hope is proud to be able to assist those in need in our community.
