A new sober living facility housing up to 21 people is planned to open in the city in a location that currently houses a salon.
Restoration Church, located in Dover, will purchase property at 117 Walnut St. with plans to gradually build up to 21 residents, including on-site managers.
The Rev. Nathan Gagne explained how the Restoration Church Sober Living Home operation will work.
“People will have to apply for a spot,” Gagne said. “These are people currently leaving detox, who have 90 days of sobriety under their belt, and who feel like they need this security. Having this support is crucial for some people.”
