O’Neill Valley Hope has offered alcohol and drug treatment services in north-central Nebraska since 1977. Our 76-bed facility is located 40 miles from the South Dakota border on Highway 281, and 110 miles north of Grand Island. O’Neill Valley Hope’s rural setting is not only picturesque but also allows those from urban areas to get away from the environment where they have been active in their addiction, which can be a positive aspect for the beginning of one’s recovery journey.
We offer a variety of treatment options to patients ages 16+ including medically monitored detoxification, residential and partial/day, continuing care and family treatment. Treatment programming is seven days per week and includes a psycho-educational and 12 Step lecture, individual and small group counseling, spiritual counseling, and opportunities to attend 12 Step meetings. Treatment is highly individualized, as is our length of stay. Patients work with their individual counselor to develop a continuing care plan so that they continue to receive the treatment and support they need, long after leaving the residential treatment center.
Valley Hope has always recognized the importance of family involvement in the process of recovery. O’Neill Valley Hope offers family programming during the week and on the weekends. Tuesdays and Thursdays offer additional programming designed specifically for family members. We also offer online family treatment which is a great resource for those family members that want to be involved but may not be able to travel.
O’Neill Valley Hope values the continued relationship with its alumni and highly encourages those who have been through treatment to return for monthly Renewal Days held the first Friday of each month. Renewal Days offer current patients the opportunity to connect with alumni – a valuable support in early recovery, as well as the chance for alumni to retain their connection with Valley Hope. Annual alumni activities include a motorcycle ride the first Saturday of June and a golf tournament held in conjuncture with the Annual Reunion held each August.
Our admission staff is available 24/7. We accept most forms of private insurance. Self-pay options are also available. O’Neill Valley Hope is licensed by the state and accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JC).
Kathy Johnston has been named Program Director of Valley Hope Association’s, O’Neill, NE inpatient facility. She comes to O’Neill following 4-years as a Counselor at the Norton, Kansas facility.
While perusing her Bachelor’s Degree from Fort Hays University, majoring in Sociology, Kathy conducted her clinical addictions internship at Valley Hope, Norton. She immediately fell in love with Valley Hope’s philosophy in helping the addicted, and their family members, so that all may begin to heal in recovery. Post-hire, she served as a Primary Counselor, but also conducted family group counseling, as well as weekly Continuing Care sessions for those patients recently discharged from inpatient care.
Kathy feels privileged to have built her career within the Valley Hope Association, and can’t imagine working for any other organization. She draws inspiration from daily interactions with patients and feels blessed to assist their early recovery.
Regarding her new role as Program Director in O’Neill, Kathy is excited to play an integral role in the leadership structure, and looks forward to continued growth in patient, and family care and overall positive growth within the O’Neill facility and beyond.
Kathy is engaged to be married and has 2-children, Jon-Patrick 19, Janet, 21 and a son-in-law, Dustin, who have all been very supportive of her in her transition to O’Neill.
