Recovery Program for Men

Privett Center & Shelter

More than half of the homeless population in the United States suffers from addiction to drugs or alcohol. Unless their addictions are addressed, they are unlikely to be successful in moving away from homelessness.

Since 1996, the Hope Center has operated a highly successful Recovery Program for Men at its facility on West Loudon Avenue. In 2008, the George Privett Recovery Center enabled the Hope Center to expand its men’s recovery program to a 110-bed facility down the street from its previous location. Over a thousand men have successfully completed this program.

The program provides a long-term recovery approach that is both peer-driven and professionally supervised. It teaches the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and the Recovery Dynamics curriculum in a community atmosphere that emphasizes both personal responsibility and mutual accountability.

The men’s program includes a non-medical, licensed detoxification center that has eight beds and is always open.

Hope Center board members and employees have always believed that it is critical to do something – something lasting – for each individual client we serve. Since our doors opened in 1993, we have continued to add and expand programs that address the root causes of each person’s homelessness.
