Restore hope | Promote personal responsibility | Cultivate independence

New Beginnings Hickory is a sober living facility for men wanting to make a change.

We offer a substance-free sober living community where a man can find the tools and fellowship needed to recover from an alcohol/drug -centered lifestyle. One of the benefits of living in a sober house is the end to the isolation that accompanies addiction. For many, becoming a part of the community is the turning point in their recovery and this sense of belonging often becomes the foundation for their future.

A safe, clean, and alcohol/drug-free living environment

To be treated with dignity and respect

Assistance with gainful employment

Wholesome Food and Fellowship - 3 meals per day are provided to all residents
