ust months after opening a men’s recovery house in Willoughby, Friends of Recovery Northeast Ohio is embarking on a new journey. Director Dennis Anthony recently announced that it plans to open a women’s recovery house in Lake County. Anthony said it will be called the Arukah Home for Women. The name Arukah was chosen because it means healing and restoration in Hebrew.
