New Hope Manor is a VERY VERY LONG TERM REHAB.
The program is set up around their approval of completing the 12 steps of N/A to move on to the 'next phase of their program', an unmanagability as a parent, if applicable, and any other essay of their choosing to be written and then approved at THEIR time and convenience. When I was there there were girls that had been there for four years, UP TO SIX YEARS b4 graduating the program. You are assigned a counselor that decides if your work of the steps, etc is satisfactory. I was confused but eager to start my recovery and I immediately did the work only to see it sit in the counselor's mail basket for a month and then one day it wasnt there, and it was returned unsatisfactory the very next day. I have worked the 12 step program with two separate sponsors and I have the OFFICIAL N/A Step working guide, and I was told by my sponsor of 13 years clean time that my First Step with the patterns of my addictive behavior and my understanding of my unmanagibility and my surrender was the most sincere she had ever read. I believe that counselor didn't even read my First Step. I had to wait an additional two weeks to speak to my couselor. This is a PROLONGED program with minimal individual time with your counselor, yet it is only your counselor that determines if you can move on in the program.
