At Hope Manor Recovery & Sober Living Homes, our residents learn that long term recovery is about finding new tools and practicing them in daily life.
It would be easy to promote the idea that this is a simple process, but it wouldn’t be honest. The path we share with the people who live in Hope Manor is based on the 12 Steps, successfully used in recovery programs like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous for the better part of a century. In order to help achieve this goal, Hope Manor has in house meetings as well as off-site trips to Alcoholics Anonymous and/or Narcotics Anonymous.
Time is needed to create a solid, long lasting recovery. Hope Manor teaches that true recovery requires rigorous honesty, taking personal responsibility for behavior and a commitment to helping others. Residents in each house learn to be supportive of each other in the difficult journey to a new life. Hope Manor homes are designed to create a sense of comfort and security that allows their residents to do the necessary physical, emotional and spiritual work that will bring about long term sobriety. A new life of new attitudes, new behaviors and new habits. The houses offer a warm, embracing, fully furnished place to live with a real sense of community and at a very affordable price.
The use of non-chemical coping skills, gainful employment, volunteering, education and action is the basis of the Hope Manor Philosophy. The 12 Step (AA, NA, etc.) programs are heavily utilized and provide the crucial foundation for the recovery process. This positive and supportive structured environment is extremely conducive for recovery from alcoholism and chemical dependency.
Hope Manor accepts residents charged with drug and alcohol violations as part of alternative sentencing. Hope Manor is inspected annually for Health, Safety and Quality Standards. Hope Manor is a member of the National Sober Living Association, which certifies, inspects, trains and mentors the Hope Manor team.

For any person in recovery the terms…
…are a part of everyday life.
As we study, we learn the significance of these three elements and search for ways to implement these abstract ideas into our lives; to realize them. The 12 Step process involves and encompasses the mind, body and spirit. Recovery of the mind is a major aspect of addiction and alcoholism; the goal is not to stop, but to stay stopped and to be able to enjoy life on life’s terms. The Twelve Step path is a spiritual path and journey.
We cannot guarantee recovery but we can create a safe, supportive environment for recovery to take hold and that’s what we do at Hope Manor every day. There isn’t an alcoholic or addict on the planet who would stay sober if things didn’t get better and at Hope Manor residents gain hope when they see recovery working in the lives around them. What may seem impossible to you now has become a joyful reality for many, and it can be your future too.
