Our mission is to build sober living communities where guests are supported in their recovery journeys. We will also ask if they have any criminal record and if they have ever been convicted of a felony offense. If an applicant has a criminal record, New Beginning Recovery will ask for information about their convictions, including the type of offense and any relevant details. Applicants applying to our homes with a history of violent crime are considered to be case-to-case. Additionally, we will screen if an applicant has ever been convicted of a sex offense or arson. These are serious offenses that are undeniably incompatible with New Beginning Recovery’s mission of providing a supportive environment for individuals in recovery.
