Pear Lake Women’s Program
Our women’s co-occurring residential treatment program is located at our newly remodeled Pear Lake facility. The house is nestled in a serene, wooded area on the shores of quiet and quaint Pear Lake, only two miles from Grand Rapids, Minnesota. The natural environment and supportive staff make this an ideal setting for our program, which is designed to help recovering women realize their fullest potential while empowering them to take responsibility for themselves and their families.
Each Pear Lake client receives personalized treatment according to her individual needs. Program options include:
- Project Clean Start: An aftercare program provided by Hope House and available to all chemically dependent mothers and their children. For more information on Project Clean Start. Click Here
