HOPE stands for Heavenly Options for Pain and Emptiness

Life does not always unfold as we hope.

Life often takes unexpected turns, leading us down paths we never imagined. In moments of disappointment, discouragement, and failure, it can feel like we have lost control. The void left by pain and emptiness may drive us to seek solace in unhealthy people, places, and activities, ultimately paving the way for addiction and its perilous consequences.

Amidst the darkness, there is hope.

We firmly believe that the chains of addiction and sin can be shattered, leading us to discover forgiveness, power, and freedom through Jesus. He is the ultimate answer to the pain and emptiness that pervade our lives.

Our 12-step Christian addiction recovery support group, known as H.O.P.E. (Heavenly Options for Pain and Emptiness), is here for those grappling with pervasive sins such as alcoholism, anger, pride, lust, and greed.

Allow us to guide you towards H.O.P.E.

H.O.P.E. is more than just an acronym; it is a sanctuary for recovery, belonging, contribution, understanding, and a Spirit-filled life. In this space, you will find support, camaraderie, and the tools needed to break free from the grips of addiction.

Our doors are open to anyone wrestling with addiction, with a particular focus on chemical addiction. While many in our group share this struggle, each individual is encouraged to identify as a recovering addict or a recovering sinner. The primary aim of our group is to foster an environment where God’s transformative power can change lives and spur spiritual growth.

Join us on this journey toward healing and redemption!
