A new second chance home is opening in Pike County for recovering drug and alcohol addicts.
WestCare held the grand opening for the "Sober Living" house Tuesday evening.
It is in the former domestic violence shelter in Pikeville.
The home is designed to help men who are recovering addicts transition back to society after jail and rehab.
"It keeps them out of the old environment they were in. They don't have to go back to their families and friends that were using, and it gives them an opportunity to continue to work on recovery, maintain sobriety, while becoming responsible adults." Cathy Coleman, the coordinator for WestCare said.
The men in the program are required to have jobs and pay rent.
Directors say there is already a waiting list to get in.
