Limen House: A Threshold to Recovery
Our mission is to offer a threshold to recovery and break the cycle of addiction in service to our community.

Some people go their whole lives without ever seeing a miracle. At Limen House, we've been seeing them every day for over 45 years. As friends and supporters of Limen House, you have not only seen them, but also helped to create them.

Now celebrating over 45 years of helping alcoholics and addicts reenter society as fully functioning and productive members, from its' inception in 1969, (read more about how Limen House began…) the Limen House philosophy has been to provide a temporary home for those with no place to live. There the resident learns to change their life and help themselves in an atmosphere of compassion and loving concern. They learn to be responsible for their own choices. The aim is truly restoration - a new life restored to the community.

The statistics on the devastation of alcoholism and drug addiction are staggering. The need for our program has grown over the last 45 years, but thankfully, so has the support of the surrounding community and friends of Limen House. Our residential recovery program for recovering alcoholics and addicts consists of four sober living houses, two women and two men, all in downtown Wilmington. We invite you to read more about the miracles happening at Limen House!


Limen House is part of the system of public services offered by DSAMH.
