Contact: Catherine Amico Orlandini

Since 1942, Villa of Hope has risen to meet the needs of the community time and time again. Through caring for increasing numbers of people whose lives were impacted by abuse, poverty and family histories of mental illness and drug problems, the Villa has evolved into a leader in behavioral health, mental health, substance use treatment and trauma-informed care.  

For youth, adults, and families, the Villa is a place where human challenges meet hope and renewal. Many people who develop substance use disorders are also diagnosed with mental health challenges, and vice versa. That is why we combine prevention educational programs with treatment services through recovery and beyond. This integrated approach includes a mental health outpatient clinic, a medically assisted treatment program, a short-term medical detoxification center, an after-hours peer-led support center, and a teen residential recovery program.

Even more, treatment plans are often combined with additional Villa of Hope services, including education, workforce development, and in-home community care, to help individuals thrive through our continuum of care process. 

Villa of Hope partners with individuals, families, and communities to Rebuild relationships, Recover potential, and Renew hope for the future!
