Addiction Center Opens New Home

Posted: Updated:
Not even a year since opening it's door to women struggling with drug addiction, Hope Manor in Bismarck is expanding.

The self supporting sober house requires the residents to stay employed and contribute to household duties and bills. With room to only house 11 women, founder Judith Roberts says she has a waiting list of those asking for help.

So, she decided to open another home in Bismarck, which will hold an additional 12 residents.

"At least it's 22 people it's 22 women that you know, even if one life is changed to give 22 women the opportunity to get into recovery," says Roberts.

Roberts says the second sober home won't be ready to open until January 2015.
