WHAT WE DO
Nearly all of us are touched, in some way, by the disease of addiction, whether through family members, friends, coworkers, or acquaintances. Alcoholism and addiction rob individuals of everything they love and value.
Recovery is possible, but sometimes requires more than just detox (or even short-term treatment).
Based in Beaufort, South Carolina, Low Country Hope House (LCHH) is a long-term recovery home for men. Our goal is simple—freedom from alcohol and drug addiction. LCHH seeks to integrate the highly effective twelve-step principals with a comprehensive education about the disease of addiction. The result of this combination is a higher than average rate of recovery.
LCHH was founded and is run by people in recovery who believe they owe a debt to other alcoholics and addicts that helped them achieve a life liberated from alcohol and drugs. The LCHH family feels that it is a duty, an honor and a privilege to help the still sick and suffering.
LCHH provides residences for men and women over the age of 18 who are recovering from alcohol and/or drug addiction. We place a high emphasis on financial responsibility. Residents are required to work and pay their rent promptly. Residents participate in daily community recovery meetings and help their fellow residents overcome addiction. Adherence to these principals is required.
The male residence home houses up to 16 men. Residents live under the supervision of a male house manager. We expect residents to follow house rules, to participate in house activities, and to consent to random drug and alcohol tests. The average stay is between six and twelve months.
On August 19th, we opened an additional male facility that will allow us to house 10 more residents. The new location will serve as the starter home; with intensive 12-step work and in-house meetings daily. Upon completion of certain requirements, the residents can then transition into the existing home with 6 beds for a more in-depth application of their new way of living; free from the chains of addiction.
This is expansion is a dream come true for all of us involved; and we would like to thank every one of you for your gracious donations and countless hours of volunteer work. None of this could have been possible without your love and support.
“If we are facing in the right direction,
all we have to do is keep on walking.”

My name is Josh. I'm 35 years old and I'm from Myrtle Beach, SC. Growing up on the coast, to put it lightly, I found myself on a permanent vacation. I became consumed in a lifestyle of drugs and alcohol. Completely lost and desperately looking for a better way of living, I found the Low Country Hope House. It was there that I found the structure I was looking for. I was introduced to a 12-step program and was taught how to live a clean and sober life. The Hope House gave me a foundation to build upon and a structured way of recovery. As humble as they are and don't accept the credit, I thank James and Richard for a huge part of my recovery. I currently have a great job, my own place to live and countless other amazing blessings. I am extremely grateful for the Hope House for giving me the tools for the life I have today.
Forever Grateful, Josh A.
Shame, resentments, guilt, remorse, sorrow and anger. These are just some of the things that constantly drive the insane thinking of an alcoholic.
My name is Corey; and I'm an alcoholic. I've been sober a year now thanks to the structure and principles I've learned at the Low Country Hope House. Unlike and in-patient treatment center, at the Hope House there is no set time limit; and you're not cocooned inside protective walls. I work, pay rent, buy groceries and work the program. The program showed me how to deal with those emotions that made me drink. The LCHH allowed
me to experience the highs and lows of life; combined with accountability to learn to do it sober.
The Hope House gave me the knowledge and the tools. I did the work; and God saved my life.
Thank you, Corey C.
