However, the primary purpose of Hopper House is to create an environment and model for one to find a Power Greater than one’s self that will do for him what he cannot do for himself. We are a faith-based recovery house and that means we discuss God. But we do not dictate a specific denomination, group, or religion. Those are matters one decides for himself.
