Coming soon — a first-of-its-kind, brand-new, integrated recovery and mental health facility. We look forward to welcoming community members and offering life-changing support, programs, and resources to help them move forward.
Open for Recovery will mark a new beginning for Villa of Hope and youth and adults who are battling substance use disorders and working to better their mental health and wellness. Our new center will provide life-changing opportunities for families and individuals to find hope and to recover and rebuild their lives.
About Gregory E. Polisseni Living Hope Treatment Center
Gregory E. Polisseni Living Hope Treatment Center will serve community youth and adults who need direct access to substance use disorder support, resources, and programs as they work to recover and improve their mental health. The Villa is proud to provide life-changing opportunities for families and individuals to find hope and to recover and rebuild their lives. This 18-bed medically supervised withdrawal and treatment center on the beautiful Villa of Hope Dewey Avenue campus is opening soon! This facility will be the only one of its kind in Monroe County to treat adolescents, as well as adults.
Our Living Hope Impact
Villa of Hope is excited to introduce our new medically supervised withdrawal and stabilization treatment home to the Rochester community. This center is the first community, agency-run inpatient center of its kind in Monroe County to treat adolescents and adults and offer specialized post-detox programs.
Opioid use is at an all-time high and the numbers of overdoses and deaths due to substance use disorder are growing daily. With the help of a new grant, the medically supervised withdrawal and stabilization treatment home will provide Villa of Hope another opportunity to change the lives of youth and adults in our community ages 16 and up.
In 2017, 32% percent (1,700 people) of county residents seeking services had to travel outside of Monroe County due to a lack of bed availability. The new home will serve patients in Monroe County who are struggling with addiction and who have previously had to seek treatment outside of the county.
Our new 24-hour facility will offer short-term (5-7 days) medical inpatient treatment focused on physically stabilizing patients who are stopping the use of alcohol and/or other drugs. The home will also provide structured, around-the-clock treatment programs under the watchful care of physicians, nurse practitioners, psychiatrists and licensed therapists. After completing withdrawal, and guided by compassionate professionals and trained peer support specialists, patients will be able to continue treatment in other programs such as the Villa of Hope Outpatient Clinic and/or residential and group home programs.
“Individuals and families seeking help should not have to travel outside of Monroe County to find it. We need to eliminate barriers and stigma to get people the help they need – when and where they need it. Harmful drug use and contaminated drug supply are killing our friends, neighbors, and young people – they are killing our communities. We all need to step up and take on this challenge.”
There’s no wrong door to the Villa. We’ll assess an individual’s needs and work with them to develop a customized approach that they feel is right for them, and walk with them every step of the way.
