BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – An addiction support organization called High on Hope Ministries is hosting a recovery support event this January in Beckley.
High on Hope Ministries is an outreach ministry that focuses on helping those coming out of addiction. They’ve held multiple events in different counties around West Virginia, but this one will be the first in the Beckley area.
