It was standing room only Thursday afternoon as The Healing Place of Huntington celebrated the addition of 22 beds to its facility and revealed a new name and logo.

The Healing Place of Huntington, now going by the name Recovery Point Huntington, is a long-term residential care facility for men recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. With the 22-bed addition, the facility can now house 100 men.

Mayor Williams joined Congressman Evan Jenkins, Wayne County Delegate Don Perdue, representatives from the offices of Governor Tomblin and Senator Manchin and many other prominent community figures who are instrumental in the success and continuity of the program.

“Here in Huntington we are living what we intended to do. We are beginning to set standards that others in the state and in the nation seek to emulate,” Mayor Williams said as he addressed the crowd on Thursday afternoon. “We will stand together until we are able to say ‘welcome to Huntington: a sober community.’ “

The Healing Place has been so successful in its efforts to help recovering drug- and alcohol-addicted men that it’s offering help and guidance to other facilities across the state in Kanawha and Mercer counties.

Matt Boggs, director of development and graduate of The Healing Place of Huntington, assured the crowd that the community’s support has not gone unnoticed.

“By attendance here today we can see that there is hope in Huntington and hope in West Virginia,” Boggs said.
