Hope Recovery Manor speaks to Parkersburg Rotary; makes steps towards opening

PARKERSBURG W.Va, (WTAP)- Priscilla Leavitt spoke to the Parkersburg Rotary Club Monday afternoon regarding Hope Recovery Manor, a sober living facility for women to recover from substance abuse.

The facility is located at 1016 Market Street in Parkersburg and Leavitt is hopeful it will open later this year.

Women must be sober for six months before they can move into the facility and will stay for a year while being mentored from members of churches.

“We have to really teach them how to live, how to manage their finances, how to parent, how to have a relationship, how to prevent relapse, how to develop community faith. We have yoga and counseling and lots of services for them,” explains Leavitt.

The facility is planned to have 12 bedrooms, a dining room, living room, visitation area, and an area for tenants to receive counseling.
