What does Hopewell cost? How do people pay for Hopewell?

Hopewell is a non-profit, private-pay facility. Most residents use a combination of private pay and insurance benefits to cover the cost of services. A discounted daily Residential Community Fee is charged to individuals who privately pay for services. Hopewell is able to provide financial assistance as early as the beginning of the third month of service, when appropriate. Such adjustments are made possible by our endowment fund and our generous donors. Please contact our Admissions Department at 440-426-2009 to explore the affordability of our services.

Hopewell also makes every effort to obtain any potential insurance coverage for individuals who have private insurance that covers residential mental health services in their plans.

Unfortunately, Medicaid and/or Medicare do not cover mental health residential treatment services.

What types of mental illness does Hopewell treat?

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.

What are the demographics of the resident population?

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.

What is the usual length of stay?

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.

Where do residents go after Hopewell? Do you help find them placement?

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.

What do the residents do each day?

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.

Hopewell seems very distant. Why is it located so far from major metropolitan areas?

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.

How is Hopewell funded? Does it receive public money?

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.
