Since 2008 nearly 500 women have passed through our doors in Prestonsburg, Kentucky. Each of them has an intensely personal story, a battle within that we were dedicated to helping them win.

They brought with them laughter and tears, serious challenges and the deep wells of inner strength needed to overcome them. We're proud of each woman who has taken advantage of the programs and services we offer here and changed their lives for the better.

Because Hope in the Mountains is committed to privacy, their full names are not used, but they wanted to share their kind words. They believed in us at one of the worst moments in their lives and that belief was rewarded. Are you ready to believe, too?

When you are ready to begin your journey to be the best version of yourself, there is Hope In The Mountains.

“[At Hope In The Mountains] I learned about relapse prevention, self-worth, spirituality, and basic life skills. At the age of 29 I was spiritually, emotionally, and physically bankrupt.

I needed a place to help me understand the disease of addiction, a place where I could heal and deal with my past, and a place that would teach me and show me that there is a life without the use of drugs. Thankfully, I found it here.”


“Hope In The Mountains changed my life. The structure of the program, along with caring staff members, gave me the tools necessary to live a drug free life.

Words pale in comparison to the amount of love I have for Hope In The Mountains. I am forever grateful.”


“Hope In The Mountains has been such an important part of my recovery. It has been a home away from home for me for many years.

As a former client, a piece of my heart will always be there. They are able to utilize recovery education with love and empathy to build up the recovering woman that is beaten down.

There was a sign in the group room that said, ‘Let us love you until you can love yourself’, and the staff truly did that.”


“First of all I want to start by saying Hope In The Mountains saved my life. I have a little over 7 months clean (so proud of myself). The staff has never given up on me.

The staff here is amazing at what they do. They have all shown me tough love; something that I needed.

I really could not have grown into this beautiful person I am today without the help of all the staff. I love you guys.

Thanks for believing in me. I have a better chance at life and my kids have their mommy back.

Love you!”


“Hope In The Mountains changed my entire life. I walked in hopeless and walked out so full of life.

Thanks to the staff for loving me back to life. I now have a firm foundation for building the rest of my life.”


“When I arrived at Hope In The Mountains I was broken, scared, and very hopeless. At age 38, I had very little faith that my life could be turned around. Fortunately, that was exactly what happened.

The tremendous love and understanding of the staff, the welcoming environment, and the immediate sense of belonging allowed me to become a part of a recovery community. That community continues to be a vital part of my personal growth and recovery process.

It is now seven years from when I entered those doors, and I have tears of gratitude for my life today. I now function as a wife, mother, friend, and productive member of my community.

All words are inadequate to describe the knowledge and life changing experience I gained from being a part of the beautiful recovery center called Hope In The Mountains.

Lots of love,”
