Addiction recovery is now a little easier for some Grand Islanders.
This comes thanks to the opening of a new recovery house Saturday.
It's called the Island House, and is a living space for twelve men.
The requirements to live there include working, paying rent and helping one another.
House sponsor and owner Phil Beckett said the decision to create the center stems for personal experience with addiction.
"I went to a three quarter house almost eight years ago, and a lot of my friends came up from Lincoln today," Beckett said. "I've been sober ever since so I kind of have a passion for giving back what was given to me."
Right now, Beckett said he is still working on putting on some finishing touches on the house.
He said, in the future, he would like to expand and also create a recovery center for women.
