There are a variety of programs in New Bedford dedicated to helping people with alcohol and drug addictions. One of them is the House of Hope on Mt. Pleasant Street in the North End. Their mission is to provide a safe and structured atmosphere for people in recovery. Those who attend this wonderful program often accredit it to saving their lives. Volunteer staffers from the House of Hope join Jim Phillips this week to discuss the services they offer and how you can get involved.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and WBSM.com. Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
