Christian based Another Chance Ministries in Chillicothe will be celebrating seven years this November, having served over 170 men coming through substance abuse recovery. ACM currently has three recovery residential homes, but will be getting a fourth in April. They currently are serving 18 men and hope to eventually add a women's residential unit. ACM has served men from Ross, Fayette, Highland, Pike, Pickaway and other surrounding counties.

Director Rachelle Gray says they have a sobriety success rate of 95% for those who have stayed connected and graduate from the 7-9 month long program. Gray believes the success of faith-based programs having such good success is because it involves people putting "God first".

-

Gray says ACM's three pillars are "God, recovery and stuff", meaning material things behind what is most important. Another Chance Ministries is a branch of Zion Baptist Church.

The group conducted a community "Night of Hope" Sunday at Paper City Coffee, where attendees heard ACM residents, staff and volunteers explain the program and their involvement.

Art work created by ACM graduate and now staffer Alec Wiggin, was on exhibit and available for sale.
