Hope Program for Adults

Our Team

Patients in the Hope Program for Adults (Hope) are assigned a treatment team that brings together experienced clinical professionals to address their needs.
Drawing upon their skill and experience, our experts design a customized treatment plan to address the patient’s core issues. They also work with the patient and family at every step to facilitate progress. Our depth of expertise means we can provide comprehensive psychiatric and medical care.

Treatment Team Includes Patients

At Menninger, we believe the patient and family are important components of treatment success. Patients are members of the treatment team and are directly involved in setting their treatment goals, both short- and long-term, as well as discharge and aftercare planning. Family members and others whom the patient wants to include also are part of this process.
