MEDINA — A new recovery center now officially has a home but can’t quite move in yet.
Hope Recovery Community previously announced that it would move into Children’s Center of Medina County.
The Medina County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Board announced Friday it bought the property at 200 Highland Drive for $160,000. Hope Recovery board member Dave Caperton previously said the organization would enter into a lease agreement with the health board.
Phillip Titterington, executive director of the health board, said in a press release that the building “will become home to Hope Recovery Community Organization, which will provide peer recovery support services and other recover supports out of the hub.”
Ahead of moving into the location, Hope Recovery has been holding weekly dinners, sponsored by various local groups, in which an average of 100 people show up at Cornerstone Chapel, 3939 Granger Road, according to the release.
Through these dinners, people within the recovery community can connect with each other.
These events also provide to access other resources such as those related to clothing, housing and jobs.
The Children’s Center is moving into a new building at 724 E. Smith Road. Hope Recovery looks to be up and running in the spring.
