About Us

We Provide A
Safe Place To Recover

Hope Hill Sobering Center (HHSC) was established in early 2021 as a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization created with the intent of providing the community with a safe place to recover from the acute effects of intoxication in lieu of the jail or the emergency room and to then be referred to community-based resources as needed. HHSC is managed and staffed by Ascension Recovery Services.
