The Hope-Believe Recovery program is a key component of UMD’s Journey Program. It is an intensive live-in drug and alcohol rehabilitation program for homeless men and women.
Modeled after a 12-Step Alcoholics Anonymous program, participants also receive case management support and connections to housing and employment services. Participants stay in the UMD shelter. There is no cost for the program, but there is limited space, and participants must apply for the program and actively participate in their recovery to remain.
The goals are to provide recovery in a structured and supportive environment and ultimately empower participants to manage their illness, maintain sobriety, improve health and wellness, and move to self-sufficiency. The program incorporates education about addiction illness, role modeling, peer review and accountability and a system of rewards to encourage and maintain sobriety.
