Focused Healing On Mind, Body, And Spirit

Substance abuse is a devastating disease which affects the addicted person’s mind, body and spirit.
More Info

Substance abuse is a devastating disease which affects the addicted person’s mind, body and spirit. After receiving treatment for substance abuse and putting the drugs and alcohol down, we’ve found we are only scratching the surface of the problem. We have to find a way to heal from all the pain and anguish that the addiction caused. Since the addiction affected you in body, mind, and spirit, it’s essential to find ways to heal all three of these systems. 12 step based programs focuses on all three aspects and our house centers around this model.

What Our Women are Saying

Today my life looks a lot different. I have a career in which I love, I have my daughter back full time in my custody “she is my whole entire world”, I have a god of my understanding who helps me walk through life’s challenges so I’m never alone. I am engaged to a man who understands me and accepts me for who I am. I wake up each day and I don’t obsess about a substance which is a miracle. I am a better me because of this treatment center. “My daughter doesn’t know it yet but she will be forever grateful to Sheri and this house”.. I am a living miracle..

-Former Client.

I now have 6.5 years in recovery, married to my best friend, found a career that I love and just purchased my first home. I have a beautiful relationship with my family and remain active within the Recovery community. I am no longer an empty vessel of a woman but a vessel to continue to provide the same love that was shown to me. I have found my stride and I am able to live through grace. I remain an active member of Sherri’s home as they remain my home. Sherri took a chance on me with no certainty but a safe place to call home and a gift that I will never be able to repay.

-Former Client

Living here has changed the way I approach sobriety and the way I approach the world. Being sober is no longer a separate part of my life, it’s an integrated part of my life that feels comfortable and easy. Being an alcoholic may always be a part of me, but it does not define me – and now neither does my sobriety. I’m grateful for this chance that Hope Beyond Hope has given me and cannot wait to see what great things will come my way because of this opportunity.
