Susannah’s House is an Intensive Outpatient Recovery Program for mothers in recovery.  They exist to serve the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of mothers and their children.  Their mission is to provide a  source of help and hope in a therapeutic, Christian community for women and their children to break adverse cycles and rebuild their families.

They provide a nurturing and therapeutic environment for individuals and families to achieve sobriety, enhance mother and child relationships, and build better life skills while promoting spiritual growth.  They believe destructive cycles can be broken and want to serve women who have the desire and commitment to change.  Our program is a holistic set of modules for mothers determined to recover from opioid addiction and establish a safe and supportive family system. Susannah’s House is staffed with professionals in recovery and social services fields and is supported by volunteers from the Knoxville community.

Susannah’s House is a faith-based ministry started by Cokesbury United Methodist Church in 2013 and now operating as an independent, not-for-profit organization with the gracious support of the community at large. We partner with many churches of various denominations and non-profits throughout the community to serve our families with the highest level of care possible!
