Staff Spotlight


Jed Hollenbach, Chaplain

What makes Valley Hope unique?

Valley Hope is a place that provides love, hope, compassion and the tools that are necessary to break free from addiction and embrace a life of freedom and recovery. It is a place where miracles occur every week and people’s lives are restored.

How has your experience at Valley Hope affected you personally?

My time at Valley Hope has deepened my faith, expanded my heart, and has provided me a place to grow professionally. Valley Hope has given me the opportunity to deeply love and care for others and has strengthened my own recovery.

What is your favorite step?

As a chaplain, I love serving those who are navigating steps four and five. I have discovered that there is a profound connection between forgiveness and freedom.

Why does Valley Hope encourage patients to engage in a 12 step program?

The 12 step program is a proven method of helping those battling addiction and reclaiming their lives. The 12 step program also provides countless opportunities for our patients to journey with others who are investing in recovery.

Describe a recovery story that has moved you.

Every single week I have the privilege of seeing miracles unfold. This week, one of my patients hung his cup. Before he came to Valley Hope, he sold and used drugs, spent time in prison, deeply wounded scores of people, lost contact with his family and ultimately lost himself in his addiction. During his time at Valley Hope, he faced his past, found his higher power, discovered and developed the tools necessary for recovery and developed a long term after care plan. His final words to me were, “You saved my life.” Counselors and chaplains at Valley Hope hear these words every single week. We know that we actually don’t save anyone’s lives, we simply give them love, hope, support and the tools that are necessary so that they can save themselves and invest in a life of recovery.

How do chaplains work with patients?

Chaplains serve our patients by leading chapel, praying for those under our care, guiding our patients through the 12 steps, lecturing in the class room setting, and being available to the needs and concerns of our patients as they arise. We also serve in a pastoral role to the staff of Valley Hope.

Why is spirituality essential to recovery?

Addiction robs people of their body, mind and soul. Valley Hope has had the insight to provide teams of committed, loving professionals, to help those in recovery to reclaim their body, mind and soul. Recovery is about living a life, not of “I” or ‘Me” but a life of “We.” Spirituality gives our patients the opportunity to discovery their higher power and invest in a lifelong relationship of “We.”


“Valley Hope saved my life. They know what they are doing, and they really care.”  - Sammie, Valley Hope Alumna

“I can't explain to you the people the staff. The experiences. The things I let go of. The people I still stay in contact with til this day. Valley Hope changed my entire aspect of life after my addiction completely blinding me of it. I would refer anyone I know to this place, and have been back multiple times to see it.” -Brittany, Valley Hope Alumna

“I highly recommend Valley Hope to anyone that's trying to stop drinking alcohol and doing drugs. All are welcomed here. I now have four years of sobriety. Thanks for helping me get my life back, your staff was kind and loving. They showed me how I can live sober and free.” – Miguel, Valley Hope Alumnus
