IBH, which provides treatment for drug and alcohol addiction, has opened a men’s Recovery House at its main campus in Coventry Township.

The agency converted a residential dorms at its campus at 3445 S. Main St. into the recovery housing to meet an increased need for housing for those in recovery.

“Once someone completes a 30-day residential program, going right back into the community can be quite overwhelming,” Paula Roberts, IBH’s senior housing manager, said in a press release. “Recovery housing provides an opportunity to step down to a lower level of care, while still getting treatment on an outpatient level and living in an environment that’s sober and staffed.”

Recovery House has 21 beds, a living room, laundry area, workout space and kitchen.

This is part of the agency’s effort to offer additional services, which also recently involved the opening of a new facility in Firestone part for outpatient and after-care services.
