Change is here. Hope is here.

Are you ready to free your mind and body of the addictions that have consumed your life?

Shades of Hope is an all-addiction facility including those of behavioral addictions and addictions in conjunction with trauma-informed treatment.
How is addiction defined?

Addiction is more than drugs and alcohol and substances. You can also be addicted to behaviors as well. Here is a list of the most common addictions below.

Dr. Gabor Maté uses three criteria in his definition of addiction

  1. Craving the addictive substance or behavior
  2. Engaging in the addictive substance or behavior in order to experience pleasure or temporary relief from some kind of pain
  3.  The inability to give the substance or behavior up.

But there is a solution…

Welcome to Shades of Hope

Shades of Hope was established 30 years ago and continues to be a leading choice for those living with addiction. Our residential treatment facility is surrounded by 700-year-old live oaks, breathtaking sunsets, and lush land giving you the perfect space to heal.

Our programs are designed to help all aspects of your life…We focus on more than the mal-adaptive behaviors or addiction. We focus on trauma, anger, and low self-esteem. We believe addiction is addiction. It doesn’t matter what you’re addicted to.

What matters is that we get to the root cause of it.

Too often, people believe if they are no longer engaging in addictive behaviors and gliding through life, they’re fully healed and good to go. This is typically a band-aid though. You may not partake in your initial coping behavior/addiction of choice but will eventually substitute a substitution for that addiction. We see it time and time again. This is because the underlying issues are not addressed.

We believe in unraveling and confronting these core issues to create life-long success. It’s not easy work, but we promise it is worth it. 

We know what you’re going through because we’ve been through it ourselves.

If you’re tired of looking at yourself in the mirror and want to transform your life, we can help. You’ll learn how to face your fears, confront your pain and trauma, and eliminate the addictions, anxiety, and depression that are controlling and affecting every aspect of your life.

Many have challenges with word “addiction”: however, if you crave a substance (alcohol, drugs, sugar, food) or a reward (retail therapy, the release after a purge, the need to have sex fo feel loved, the feeling of control as your restrict food) you may a form of addiction. There is no shame in developing addiction, it is how a lot of people cope. But we want to teach you better ways to cope.

If your addictive behaviors are causing turmoil and strife in your life, the time is NOW to make a change. Getting help to transform your life isn’t something to be ashamed of. Our staff understands because they have all gone through the exact same program. You’re never alone at Shades of Hope.  

If you are truly ready to do the work, introspect, learn your triggers, and find peace once and for all:
