By: Richard Keeper, Outpatient Services Lead Peer Support Specialist

I love working at The Healing Place, and as an alumnus of the traditional long-term recovery program, I have learned to love myself and others as well. When I completed the program, I joined the amazing team in Outpatient Services, which takes The Healing Place’s peer-driven social model of recovery and puts it in an […]


The Spirit of The Healing Place

By: Jay Davidson, Executive Chairman

As I look to the what’s ahead for The Healing Place this new year, I must reflect on this past year. 2021 was filled with challenges at every turn.

Navigating the Holidays

By: Karyn Hascal, President

This is such a special season of the year for many people – a time to get together with family and friends, a time of sharing, caring, and celebrating.

Paying It Forward

By: Keenan Long, Major Gift Officer

I came to The Healing Place in 2015 because I had nowhere else to turn. I was using drugs and had basically lost everything I had. I had no money, no home, and no friends left. When I walked through the doors of The Healing Place Women’s Campus, they didn’t ask many questions. All they […]

Freer Than I Have Ever Been

By: Brittany Harris, Alumni

My life began again on August 10th, 2016. There are no words for how lucky I am to be given such a meaningful day, and to be chosen to continue a life I was sure would end early. I thought I had discovered magic the first time I ever drank alcohol. It quickly took away […]
