Hopewell is a non-profit, private-pay facility. Hopewell charges a monthly residential community fee that is progressively reduced each month for the first six months according to the following schedule:
(Rates increased on 1/1/2017)
Month 1: $9,300 (Due upon admission)
Month 2: $8,300
Month 3: $7,300
Month 4: $6,300
Month 5: $5,300
Month 6 and beyond: $4,300
The monthly reductions are made possible by our endowment fund and our generous donors. Prior to admission, financially responsible parties (family, guardian or applicant) must submit financial verification documentation as a component of the application process to demonstrate access to adequate resources to pay Hopewell costs. Additional fees apply for professional services including psychiatrist and nutritionist appointments, medications and lab services.
Unfortunately, Medicaid and/or Medicare do not cover mental health residential treatment services.
Hopewell residents are 18 years of age or older, have a primary diagnosis of a mood or thought disorder and express a readiness for mental health treatment. Typical diagnoses include schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder and major depression.
Some of our residents may be recovering from drug or alcohol abuse. They must, however, have an absence of active abuse. Individuals should have some self-care skills, be medication compliant and be in reasonable physical health. For a complete list of admissions criteria, please call our admissions team at 440.426.2009.
Hopewell residents are 18 years of age or older. While the majority of the residents are from Northeast Ohio, there are a number of residents at our mental health treatment facility from across the United States.
Depending on the recommendation of the referring physician and the individual's response to the program, a resident’s stay may be between six to nine months or up to a maximum stay of three years. We accept a limited number of residents into our Extended Stay Program; this is discussed on a case-by-case basis with the clinical team. The progress of each resident is monitored and reevaluated regularly.
Over 70% of our residents have successfully moved into more self-reliant settings. The clinical staff works with the family and the resident's case manager to coordinate plans for the next step. Hopewell has established relationships with area mental health and housing agencies to support residents as they move forward.
In addition to participation in the areas of community work (i.e., farm animal care, kitchen, housekeeping, gardens and grounds), Hopewell supports the individual in his or her efforts to achieve recovery goals through programs such as high school and college education, volunteer opportunities and employment in the greater community, health and well-being education groups and relapse prevention programs.
The rural setting offers a healing respite from the chaotic daily life found closer to cities. Hopewell's therapeutic farm approach to care creates a connection to the earth and each other, a dependable and safe daily structure and opportunities to experience success.
Hopewell is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Daily fees for service and county-sponsored placements or resident benefit payments from the VA and Social Security generate approximately 50% of revenue annually. The remaining 50% is generated from philanthropic support from individuals, foundations and corporations and from investment income.
