Our Mission
Provide Christ centered recovery homes offering hope, healing and restoration for individuals recovering from addictive substances.


Friends of Recovery NE Ohio Ministry seeks to provide Christ centered recovery homes offering Hope, Healing and Restoration for individuals recovering from addictive substances. These homes provide a safe, affordable, drug and alcohol-free residential environment for both women and men that have chosen recovery. As the women and men grow in their recovery, they will learn respect, accountability/responsibility and healthy relationship building. Most importantly, they will learn they have a loving Father waiting with open arms that can/will set them free.

All of our recovery homes operate on three biblical principles.

Tikvah Home for Men – Willoughby, OH
Respect: Everyone will learn how to respect themselves, their house family as well as the community in which they reside. (Mt 7:12, and Ro 12:9-11, 13:1-7).
Responsibility/Accountability: Everyone will learn to be responsible/accountable for his/her actions and behaviors. (Pr 28:13, Gal 6:4-5, 1Th 5:11, and Heb 10:24).
Relationship: Everyone will learn how to develop healthy relationships. (Mt 22:37-40, Eph 4:2-3, and Col 3:17).

During your stay with us, we will teach you the life skills necessary to blossom into a functioning/productive member of society. You will learn such things as what addiction is and how it affects you and your family. We will also offer lifesaving tools to help you throughout your recovery journey. You will meet like-minded people and develop relationships based on love and trust.

We at Friends of Recovery Northeast Ohio know what it is like to lose hope and direction in life. We are a group of people who have been there. We have made the poor choices ourselves or have watched our loved ones choose the wrong road. Either way, we have all felt alone in this struggle. Does any of this sound familiar? If so, we are here to offer hope and share that YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

What do we expect from you? First and most importantly, we expect you to remain sober. Second, living in one of our recovery homes has no set number of days. Third, we expect you to help others struggling with addiction within the recovery house as well as in the community. Lastly, we expect you to give back to the community by living a functional and productive life. Simply put, we believe the more we help others, the more we help ourselves.


“Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.”
Revelation 3:20
