NuLife Sober House is a faith-based, sober living home with zero-tolerance to drugs and alcohol. It was founded in hopes of providing a safe community of sober men as well as to help those struggling with addiction find hope through God’s grace, love, and mercy and we believe in Philippians 4:13:

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

And that anyone who believes in Christ can break the hold of addiction and begin a New Life through the Grace of God.
