ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A new substance abuse recovery and community center celebrated its grand opening in Albany. Hive of Hope on Central Avenue has a gym, a recreation center, and a business center. Members can access all the amenities under one condition—48 hours of continuous sobriety.

Nathan Writer, Director of Hive of Hope, said he hopes the new center will provide a safe space for people struggling with substance abuse to go find support and community. “We really wanted to create a place that was as inviting as possible, promotes health and wellness, and really fills that gap where people can make connections in a safe environment,” he said.

Hive of Hope will also hold regular support meetings for those seeking help. More information about the center can be found on their website.
