The Healing Place of Huntington provides a long-term residential program of recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. The recovery center for men, located at 2425 9th Avenue in Huntington, WV, offers 70 beds and will increase capacity to 100 over time. Since 2011, over 75 men have graduated our long-term program. Recent statistics reveal that over 65% of our graduates stay sober for the first year. That is roughly three times the national average of traditional treatment centers. The Healing Place of Huntington is built on two principles: unconditional love and personal accountability. Both are lost in a life of addiction. The heart of our program is a change of character achieved through working the twelve steps of recovery. Ultimately, men become productive members of society.

The Healing Place model saves lives and restores families.
