HOPEQUEST - THE TREK PROGRAM
Tucked away in the dense forests of Woodstock, Georgia, 30 miles north of Atlanta, HopeQuest is a Christian ministry group that provides treatment services to adults struggling with chemical dependency, co-occurring mental health disorders, and/or sexual addiction. The organization’s TREK program, which stands for Transforming, Restoring, Establishing Kingdom Life, is a long-term residential program designed for adult men. Lasting 12 weeks, it's one of 54 non-hospital treatment facilities in Georgia (just 17 percent) to offer a residential program longer than 30 days. Detoxification services are not available on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission, clients undergo a comprehensive assessment and evaluation to identify the severity of addiction and individual client needs.
During the residential program, clients participate in psycho-educational lectures and process groups, as well as receive individual counseling on a weekly basis. Educational and process groups address a range of mental health issues, including PTSD, depression, and anxiety disorders, to promote a successful recovery. Sexual addiction groups are held daily.
As a Christ-centered program, clients also participate in faith-based activities such as spiritual groups, pastoral counseling sessions, Bible studies, and worship services. The program incorporates a “family workshop experience" during treatment, which involves family counseling and education.
Once a client completes the residential program, TREK provides options for continuing care, including an intensive outpatient program (IOP), transitional living, and regular support group meetings. Although treatment is Christian-oriented, clients do not have to be Christian to enroll in treatment.
According to the facility’s website, the TREK program boasts a staff-to-client ratio of 1:3. The treatment team includes a clinical psychologist, a campus pastor, a licensed social worker, and a certified sexual addiction therapist, along with master's level licensed professional counselors, recovery technicians, clinical therapists, licensed marriage and family therapists, and certified alcohol and drug counselors.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Up to 15 clients at a time live in home-like, farmhouse-styled residences surrounded by 18 acres of wooded countryside. The campus features jogging trails and volleyball courts. All clients are expected to perform household chores and help maintain the facility’s common areas.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Kerri, the sole loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date, gave the TREK program less positive feedback. While she reported that the program was somewhat helpful for her brother, she noted that she was disappointed in the counselor they assigned to him. "He has been struggling since exiting and honestly I'm upset that they didn't change his counselor after I made a request," she wrote. "I think he could've made a lot more progress with one of their other counselors."
According to the facility's website, HopeQuest accepts out-of-network insurance and offers financial assistance to every client.
