About hatchery house
We work to help restore lives shattered by drug addiction and alcoholism. Our method is what we call Widescope Holistic Algorithm™ covering the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our clients. We are of the firm conviction that the thoroughly following the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous are a vital first start, for us they are indeed only a first step in our continual quest in living a recovered life. At the Hatchery House, we not only stay rooted in the 12 steps but we also seek to further our connection to God by studying His word so that we can more thoroughly learn His will for us. Our purpose is to provide believers and non-believers alike a proven and highly effective environment and program to recover from drug and/or alcohol addiction.
