The Tattnall County Recovery Residence Ordinance is an important document to Mandy Willis Hall of Promise of Hope-Tattnall. 

This ordinance provides details regarding the establishment of a recovery residence in Tattnall County. Promise of Hope-Tattnall is a recovery residence that serves as a faith-based long-term recovery residence for women, offering nine months and yearly recovery programs for women over 18 years of age.

Hall has made it her mission to educate municipalities on this ordinance, which is included below. She most recently spoke to the City of Collins at their September 2022 council meeting. 

A recovery residence is any facility located in, on, or at any land within the unincorporated area of Tattnall County, which houses, shelters, or supervises any individual for the purpose of assisting them in rehabilitating from and overcoming substance abuse and addiction, according to the ordinance. Recovery residence also means safe and healthy residential environments in which skills vital for sustaining recovery are learned and practiced in a home-like setting, based on certain principals and standards recognized by the National Alliance of Recovery Residences (NARR) and Georgia Association of Recovery Residences (GARR). 

In order to establish a recovery residence in Tattnall, a recovery residence permit must be obtained from the governing authority, the business must be GARR certified and must comply with NARR standards, and the health department must ensure compliance with NARR provisions and must issue an on-site sewage management permit. 

Any person or individual who violates any part or provision in this ordinance shall be punished by a fine not to exceed $1,000 or imprisonment for 60 days or both.

Promise of Hope-Tattnall is located on the outskirts of Glennville. For more information, call (912) 654-1132; or email Visit their website at
