Who are we?

THPNC truly is where hope is found. We provide food, shelter, clothing, and recovery services at no cost to the client. All a person has to have is a desire to get sober. We want there to be as few barriers to recovery as possible.

We at THPNC are committed to maintaining a professional environment of respect, compassion, trust, honesty, opportunity, and diversity to help change lives.  THPNC does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any activities or operations.

What sets us apart?

The Healing Place has grown into one of the most effective long-term social model recovery programs in the nation. The Healing Place model relies on the assistance and guidance of the thousands of alumni who are now living meaningful, productive, and sober lives to supplement traditional approaches to recovery.

In addition to The Healing Place of New Hanover County, the social model of recovery created by The Healing Place has been replicated in 14 Recovery Kentucky facilities across the Commonwealth as well as in facilities located in Richmond, Virginia and Raleigh, North Carolina.
