Hope Recovery is a program held every Thursday night to help anyone struggling in life. The faith-based gathering gets underway at 7 p.m. at 212 NE 4th Street in Lamesa.
    Sebastian Iglesias, one of the two founders of the program, described Hope Recovery as “a refuge where people can come and get help with their problems.”
    “Hope Recovery is for everyone struggling with something, not just drugs. Hope Recovery covers every aspect of life,” Iglesias said.
    Although Hope Recovery is a program intended for anyone who needs help, the program focuses on addiction in particular.
    “We try to help people understand what addiction is. We help people face their problems head on without using chemicals. We teach people how to overcome addiction with the power of prayer (and) the power of God,” Iglesias said.
    The weekly gathering is supported by the House of Prayer and the Holy Rollers Association. The House of Prayer provides the building for Hope Recovery.
    “(The House of Prayer) has gone beyond the call of duty as far as I’m concerned,” Iglesias said.
    Co-founder of Hope Recovery Ken Miller said the Holy Rollers Association is a motorcycle ministry that spreads the word of God. In addition, the Holy Rollers also spread the word of Hope Recovery throughout the area.
    “The Holy Rollers Association’s involvement with Hope Recovery is we let people know there’s a place they can go if they’re struggling,” Miller said.
