During their stay at the Hope Center, the guests are required to work through several bible-based curriculum, as well as participate in daily devotions and bible studies. We have a variety of approved pastors and people from the surrounding communities that take part in these studies. The goal of this practice is to show our guests that only the word of God truly has the power to renew the mind.


Dickson Men’s Center is a faith-based treatment facility located in Dickson, Tenn., offering long-term residential treatment to men struggling with alcohol and drug misuse disorders. Dickson Men’s Center is part of the Hope Center Ministries (HCM), a non-profit organization based in Waverly, Tenn. Founded in 2007, HCM now operates seven treatment locations throughout the state.

All HCM locations provide identical treatment programs, which, according to the organization’s website, are rooted in a Christian-based 12-step program.


HCM is one of only 58 treatment facilities (25.6 percent) in Tennessee to provide long-term residential treatment. According to their website, the Hope Center Ministries (HCM) Disciple Residency Program (“HCM Program”) is designed to be an eight-month recovery program that is broken down into three phases.

During phase one, which lasts 45 days, residents focus on the core issues of their addiction and participate in group sessions, individual 12-step counseling, and Celebrate Recovery groups. Residents are also expected to attend devotionals, Bible study, worship services,, and work through a Bible-based curriculum.

Work therapy is a significant aspect of treatment, and residents work to help pay for their treatment. Job placement may be at one of HCM’s thrift stores or with another local employer. During phase one, residents participate in four hours of daily work-therapy and eight hours one Saturday a month. Phase two lasts 20 weeks and involves 40 hours of work per week, in addition to the same therapies used in phase one.

During the third and final phase, clients transition to community living and learn to apply Biblical principles to real-life situations. The third phase lasts a minimum of eight weeks and includes group and individual sessions, church services, and random drug testing.

Family support groups and church attendance are strongly encouraged throughout the recovery process.


HCM does not currently offer information on the training and experience of its staff team. However, their website indicates that most of the organization’s leadership have struggled with drug and/or alcohol addiction, including founder Josh Hannah.


The Dickson facility is a stone ranch-style building set in a wooded environment. According to the facility’s website, residents are not able to make phone calls until after an initial 30-day period.


At the time of this writing, Best-rehabs.com has received a single review from an alum, Chris, who rated the program five out of five stars on all aspects evaluated. “This is an amazing treatment center that allowed me to get a close relationship with God,” Chris wrote, adding, “I have been sober for 3 years and continue to stay connected to HCM.”
